Dumbleton Hall Wedding – Photo of the week – 25th November 2012

Hey there, my photo of the week seems to have become a bit of a photo of a few months as we have been frantically busy over the summer.

But I am back to it and over the next few weeks will post a picture of the day to update the photo of the week and bring it back up to date !

So here is this weeks first photo.

The photo was taken at my last wedding of 2012 and features the beautiful bride Katie, it was pouring with rain when she turned up to the venue and we had to keep her in the car and hide her away from the groom who was till wondering around the venue, so not to let time to by without taking a photo or two, I had the bridal party stand between the car and the building (they were under cover) so blocking the view from the windows, I then using a medium telephoto lens framed Katie in the car and had Clare stand at the front of the car with a softbox and twin Nikon SB900’s to provide soft but directional light through the front windows of the car.

Apart from the black and white conversion which I did using my favorite black and white photoshop action (Yervant’s Black and White action) its pretty much as it came out of camera – the only real airbrushing that took place was to clean up all the water drops from the pane of glass in front of Katie.

Hope you like it,
