In this short blog I want to share a photograph taken at a wedding today. I was not the photographer and therefore I wanted to stay in the background and remain unobtrusive, so I did not even use a flash.
The main light source came from a window which backlight the bride and groom, this also meant that it would be unsuitable to use AV or shutter priority, so manual settings were used and a negative exposure bias value to compensate for the backlighting.
The camera settings were 500 ISO, 1/50 shutter and f5.0 aperture on a 70mm lens. The result produced was a rather dreamy high key image. The loss of detail due to lack of front lighting contributes to the mood of the image. I think it works!
