Ritz Carlton Wedding Photos With The Becker

Thank you [B]ecker for the opportunity to 2nd shoot and expand my artistic horizons at the Ritz on Saturday. I love to see other pros like [b] doing their thing, it’s magic how he works his subjects and keeps them relaxed in front of the camera. If you’re a photographer with even the slightest taste for going into business, you need to get into The [b] School. Honestly, it is the only professional community I recommend, period. I contribute there regularly too, and it’s the first place I turn to when looking for 2nd shooters and assistants…

Also had a great time with Melissa Brandman; thanks for letting me try out your new 50 AFS!

Crazy fog rolled in RIGHT before the ceremony, in the middle of an otherwise gorgeous warm afternoon. So weird, but the bizarre light afforded some killer images! Cool diffused light = flippin’ sweet B&W images.

For photographers: All images shot on my D300, in-camera JPG and almost straight-out-of-camera (SOOC) since that’s how Becker rolls. Lenses used: Nikon 17-35 2.8, Sigma 50-150 2.8, Nikon 50 1.4 AFS, Nikon 300mm 2.8 AFS, (Becker’s massive tele; he used to shoot Nikon) …And last but not least, my two favorite manual focus lenses the Nikon 24 2.8 AIS and Tamron 90mm 2.5 Macro. Used a tripod a lot of the time. The reception lighting rimlight was a remote SB800 commanded by my pop-up flash. Yes, I used a pop-up flash in front of Becker. That’s how I roll. :-P

April 1, 2010 - 9:38 PM Naomi - A fortuitous stroke of luck to have had you and Melissa join Becker in photographing a milestone in our lives! A picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, a thousand thank yous. Your photos are amazing beyond description and we can't thank you enough. Thank you for capturing our wedding day.

April 1, 2010 - 9:44 PM Naomi - Oh! Photo #4 (the fountain photo) is my mother's favorite. She says the smile in the photo is the same smile I've had since I was a baby. She says it makes her smile every time she sees it. It's currently her desktop background. There are lots of smiles. :).
