The image was captured in a small home studio on a Nikon D300s. ISO 200, 105mm prime, f8, 1/250.

Grand Prize Winner Winner

Wedding Photography Contest #11 by Babak Aliasgharian
November-BabakAliasgharian-6
My name is Babak Aliasgharian. The photos that you see in my
profile, mostly with Hasselblad Camera. Some of them 120 format film
and the others Back digital.
My photos are original and rarely edited. I try to shoot real, live
and also I care about characters.


Getting Ready – Category Winner


Just one more minute. by Mark O’Brien

Click-Clack-Photo-1024x682
This is Grace, photographed just before leaving to get married on a sunny July morning in the Loire Valley, France. The hardest part of capturing this image was getting everyone in the right place at the right time! I had this shot in my mind for a few months prior to taking it, a couple of half opportunities had arisen during other weddings but I was never happy with how it worked out… until I took this! The big secret in photography is to recognise that it’s not all about you. Yes I made sure I used a decent camera & decent glass, made sure the exposure was correct and pressed the shutter release button… but the rest was down to the lovely bride and her willing family and friends! This applies to almost every part of photography, even landscapers need the conditions to behave! If I’ve learnt only one thing as a wedding photographer, it’s the importance of creating a great relationship with my clients and making them happy!

Camera & setting:
Nikon D700, 24-70mm f2.8, SB-600 speedlight.
ISO 800
f2.8
1/60
Flash bounced and powered down 2/3 of a stop.
Bride moved near a nice big window (most importantly)!
