Canon 35L @ f3.2, 1/100, ISO1600. 580EXII flash in a Lastolite 54cm softbox with grid, triggered by Radio Poppers manually.
This was the first proper live test of three new things together! A new lens (35L), Radio Poppers Px system and the Lastolite softbox with grid. I have of course used them all prior to the wedding, but this was a real world test with the pressure on. 🙂
The room was really dark – f1.4 @ 1/40, ISO3200 – for a normal exposure, so I underexposed the ambient about 4 stops and positioned the single light to around 45 degrees camera right and checked with a Sekonic meter. The main shot was a full length portrait with the sandstone column central and bride directly in front, but I also shot this to give her a little more placement in the surroundings by bringing in the bar in the background. If I did it again, I’d maybe move her a little more left of camera and pull back a little further to keep her wholly within the column, but I’m pretty pleased as it is!
