Last weekend’s wedding was at Tivoli Terrace in Laguna Beach. I haven’t shot at this venue before, but I’m glad I had the opportunity and I’m excited to shoot there again soon! The lights are EVERYWHERE, and oh-so-beautiful.
To me, wedding portraits AND photojournalism are all about the light. Nothing magnifies a beautiful moment like dramatic light. I also like warm light, soft light, rim light, and light that transitions from warm to cool. As a wedding photographer with roots deep in nature / outdoor photography, I just really enjoy good light. Okay I’d better stop talking about light…
Photographers: As per the usual, most of these images are minimally edited, from a Nikon D300 and one of these three lenses- Sigma 50-150 2.8, Nikon 17-55 2.8, Nikon 85 1.8. Some shots were JPG, some were RAW. All were shot with Kelvin white balance, and various different metering and exposure settings. I talk a LOT about light, white balance, metering and exposure at my Workflowshop because I believe in-camera perfection is actually one of the BIGGEST (and most over-looked) factors in having a quick, enjoyable workflow.
