First dance

Weddings

2011-08-07-0230The first dance is a key moment to record at a wedding. For this shot I wanted to get a sense of the intimacy of the moment while showing some of the wider context.

I underexposed the image by a couple of stops to de-emphasise the background guests and added some fill-in flash to accent the couple.

Technical details:
Camera: Canon EOS 5D
Lens: 24-70mm f2.8 L at 70mm
Exposure: 1/200 sec, f3.5
ISO 1600
Flash bounced off a nearby surface at +1/2 ETTL.
