Just a quick post today showing off one of my new toys, This weekend saw Clare and myself down in Pembrokeshire for the wedding of Maria and Wayne, I have just offloaded the photos and will get to edit them shortly but having a quick sneak peek at them I came across this photo of Wayne, it was taken in the pub next door to Llys Meddyg about an hour before the wedding – I wanted to capture the charm and ambiance of place so didnt want to use flash to destroy the photo, the light levels in there were pretty poor as it was 3pm on dark overcast day.
Here is one of the pictures,
So although the photo looks nice and light and bright and airy it was infact very dark, the ISO setting for those more technical out there was 4000, and it was shot at 60th of a second at F2.8 – If you look at Wayne’s waistcoat, you will see that his front was almost totally in shade, so without killing the nice atmosphere in the room I had Clare hold an improvised ICE LIGHT — our version is a 125 bulb workshop lamp and have the light just skim off his face.
Here is a pull back a few seconds later
Just wait till you see the photos we shot down on the beach ! – yep on a very snowy day in England Maria and Wayne braved sub 0 tempratures to head to the beach for some couple photos – they came out amazing…….
