Featured Wedding Portrait – Aimi


I love taking pictures at weddings (though I don’t like being hired to do so). Haven’t taken any wedding photos for a long time so it was nice to be able to do so at my cousin’s wedding.

This one was a quick one as I was not the official wedding photographer. I just brought my EF 85mm f/1.2 L on my 1D Mark III. She was sitting on her bed with her face facing the window on the her right. Available light only and no flash was used as fill in. I find that knowledge of light and how to use it has been the single biggest contributor to improvements in my photography (and it also the single biggest obstacle).

I have been getting a lot of dud shots with the 85mm f/1.2 lately especially when shot wide open. Not only is careful focussing is needed, careful positioning of the lens relative to the face is also required.
