Hello World !!!!

I hope your all well and enjoying life, if you are a regular follower of my blog like EMMA – Best Bird (Mrs P’s maid of honor) you will have noticed that over a very busy summer season I was a bit lax in posting to the blog, well this week I am trying to make amends and to that effect I am working on the backlog of Photos of the Week.

I dont have time to post them individually today, but here are  the first batch ! and posting them in no particular order, just as I find them. – I wont go into too much detail about each one here as will do so when I post them as the photos of the week, so here go’s

Photo of the Week 29th January 2012

I just love this photo, it was taken at Drumtochty Castle just south of Aberdeen, Scotland a couple of weeks back – from the wedding of Susie and Chris.

This is the kind of moment you prey for at a wedding, totally candid capture – but one that tells a GREAT story – just the kind of image I love to take for my couples.

Technically there is nothing amazing about this photo, there is no off camera flash (or on camera for that matter)  the only thing that I did to make it work was when I took this I was actually lying down on the ground – seconds before I had shot a floor to ceiling shot of the couple form the same vantage point (that photo was photo of the week a couple of weeks back – view it here)  then I noticed that this little lad started to look round and shuffle about a bit – Knowing my second shooter was covering the wedding, I decided to wait to see if I got anything worth while and didnt concentrate on Susie and Chris but kept all my attention on him.

Then all of a sudden, Tom (my 2nd) took a photo and the boy turned around and looked at him, totally missed me on the floor – I went snap, he saw me and the moment was gone – it was a case of a one shot capture – did I get it ??????? – Yes I am happy to say.

As you would have seen in previous posts about Susie and Chris’s wedding it was very very very very very dark in the church – Technical info following the pic.

Nikon D3 – Nikon 70-200 VR2 @ 135mm – ISO 6400 – F2.8 – 1/20th Second – Handheld.  I have processed it with Lightroom 4 beta and have to say its much better at recovering shadow detail than LR3. – The black and white conversion was made with Nik Softwares Silver Efx Pro 2
