Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the wedding reception in Poland.
Time
It was nearly midnight. Bride and Groom were asked to step outside to watch the fireworks show organised for them.
Lighting
It's all natural light. I had to set the ISO nearly to maximum (25600)
Equipment
I have used my Canon 5D Mk III and Canon 16-35mm, f2.8 lens.
Inspiration
When I saw all the guests gathering around the couple to look at the fireworks I decided to stand behind them and wait for the best moment.
Editing
There was not much of post-processing done to this picture. The only thing I had to get rid of was the noise on the image as it was very dark when I took this picture and had to set the ISO really high.
In my camera bag
I normally have quite a lot of equipment as I'm a wedding photographer. I have to be ready for different conditions and need spare camera, lenses and flash. My main camera is Canon 5D Mk III. I also have Canon 6D and use it on the day. I use two lenses on a wedding day: Canon 16-35mm f2.8 and Canon 24-70mm f2.8. I also have Canon 85mm f1.2 for the portrait shots and Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS if I need to keep a distance from the subject. I also have two flash guns: Canon speedlight 600 EX rt and speedlight 580EX just incase the first one fail.
Feedback
Weddings are the easiest and the most difficult to photograph in the same time. You just have to be everywhere and look around for the best moments.
