Photo of the Week – 11 December 2011

Hello there,  a little late in the day to be posing but wanted to get the photo of the week in.

This shot was actually taken around 18 months ago, I was inspired by the venue and the dress to create something a little different so what I did was turn the camera into tungsten light balance which has a side effect of turning day light into a beautiful blue colour of light.

I placed a flash inside a small folding softbox (24 inches by 24 inches) just out of camera shot and put a tungsten gel over the flash to colour balance with the camera.  I had Vicki run towards the camera lifting her dress a little – I deliberately underexposed the background by around 1 1/2 stops which made the blue all the more pronounced and took the following shot.  It took around 2 – 3 short little runs from Vicki to get the shot used here but so worth the effort.
