Very well lit

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was a last minute stop at a beach is Tsawassen BC between the wedding ceremony and reception.
Time
I don't remember the exact time of day but I know from the clouds that it was going to rain soon!
Lighting
I used one on-camera flash and I had my partner hold second off camera flash to the right. We were only at the beach for a short time so everything was hand held and mobile.
Equipment
I never use a tripod or light stands on location shoots for weddings. I used two flashes, one on board and one off camera.
Inspiration
Usually with the type of clients I get it is very run and gun so you have very little time for set up or execution. We were only at this beach location for a short time. I was immediately drawn to the driftwood and wanted to shoot my bride atop. This shot probably took less than two minutes to set up and take.
Editing
I think I lightened the subject and darkened the background a little in post while maintaining contrast.
In my camera bag
Canon 5DIII and 24-70 f2.8 as a starting point but it depends on the shooting situation.
Feedback
I don't remember the actual settings, but I would set my camera to capture the ambient scene (background) as I liked it (slightly under) and then take a shot using flash on E-TTL. Review the result and adjust flash as required (in this case increase it). If +1-3 is not enough then switch flash to manual and test. Also while doing test shots check off camera flash position for position, shadows etc and adjust if necessary.
