Wow you've really captured something to the normal wedding shots. The picture of the lady at the very top is stunning as is the little girl with the flowers. cool

Sweet snaps, Dude! There's a world of distance between taking pictures and creating art. I usually get my thumbs in the shots, so I really admire camera artists. Thanks for sharing!

I agree Staci. These are more than just snapshots - the creating art you mention can be seen in the two examples I mentioned, also the picture of the two ladies taken "through the flowers as it were". cool

Have definately seen number 1 before, I think it's one of your best shots and I remember being impressed before.

I love the last two, the one of the little girl with the flower is beautiful. I love the lighting in the last one and I'd be interested to know what the source of that was, as I don't see any full length windows or glass capolla in the shot.
I'd have liked to have seen a little more detail in the flowers of number 4, but the lack of detail means that you don't focus your attention away from the bride, so it works great.

I haven't looked on your website for a while... infact I've forgotten the url: HINT HINT, lol.
But I wanted to ask, when you put images on your gallery or portfolio, do you use several shots from the same wedding to give people an idea of consistancy of work, or do you do what I've found most photographers do and just pick your fav one off shots and use them?
Always interested to know how other folk work smile

Great shots David, you should post more often laugh

Excellent shots David. I particularly like the first and fifth pics on this thread.

The lack of detail in the flowers in #4 is due to doing no post production on any of these....these are all unretouched images. I could easily create more detail if wanted by the client just by some simple photoshop work. As for the light source in the Church photograph, i used a portable 200W flash unit hand held by my assistant and triggered with radio control unit, placed behind the subject. It creates a beautiful effect and is useful for a dramatic look on a rainy day when you cant get any dramatic lighting effects. Thanks to all for the kind words......

OOhhh, I did wonder if that was the source. It's very nice! How do you find the remote triggering? I've been looking at this recently to get the speedlite off camera. Was a tossup between a pocketwizzard and Canon's own transmitter which is IR I believe.... decisions decisions eh?
What do you use, I've heard tales of flash misfires with radio slave. Has this thread suddenly become too technical? confused2 LOL

I use the Pocket Wizard radios....they are solid and reliable and can be used with almost any flash. Very good investment.......

I normally find looking at wedding photography quite boring but these are the lift every wedding photo needs - really arty - love them - they are quite amazing - love experimentation with lighting.
