A couple of days ago I promised to blog some sunset photos from a winter wedding and here they are. I just love, love, love the natural sun flare and the warm light 40 minutes before sunset! To all photographers out there reading my blog I can add that the photo above and almost all other pics in this post are shot with one of my favourite portrait lenses, Canon 85 mm f1.2, shot in manual mode wide open at 1.2, shutter speed 1/4000 and ISO 100. During the post processing in Lightroom I have increased the contrast and the blackness, decreased yellow and orange, added some extra warmth and adjusted the exposure and made the photo a bit lighter (and of course sharpened for webb).
Anna and Joel, I hope you love the photos and I have to say that it was pure joy to be with the two of you for an one hour photo session on your wedding day!
I love to photograph details and this time I put the wedding rings on some large and dried seeds from a bush. The same bush can also be seen just below the photo of the rings. For most of my details shots I use Canon 100 mm f2.8 macro and so I did also this time.
The two photos below are taken with one of my other favourite lenses, Canon 135 mm f2.0 (as usual shot wide open).
