    Here is one from last fridays wedding... i'm pretty happy with it, the cloud gods were smiling at me, and i had a great couple to work with... and a trusty assistant at my side holding my light that would've otherwise blown into lake superior... er, probably AWAY from lake superior...

    i'll add more when i'm not so busy

    I like this shot. Very nice lighting and very dramatic look to the shot.
     
  4. Very nice photo, Great lighting, especially nice whites. You could crop a tad tighter to express the subject and still have a wonderful, colorful photo
     
  5. Wow! The lighting is fantastic.

    I agree, the balance is good. Did you use a meter or by eye?
     
  8. Excellent. If you have time, could you share a little more information on how you setup your shot.

    thanks everyone.... i almost always guesstimate and that seems to work out just fine. in this instance the clouds were looking great and i wanted the dramatic look so i underexposed the ambient by about 1.5 stops or so and just blasted my sunpak 544 into an umbrella just left (shadows explain it all)
