Behind The Lens

The photo was taken during a special shooting for a wedding couple near a Forest.
At this photo it was around 4 pm in late October, cold and almost no sunlight.
It was generally a difficult light in the forest, because the sun and clouds in the sky sometimes gave it a lot of light and shadow and then everything was very diffuse again. So I had to position the couple a bit in front of the forest and had to wait for a good moment in which the light was nice and even.
At this time, I already sold substantial parts of my Canon equipment (I changed to Nikon, but this is another story) and had only a few lenses left. This photo was made with the Canon EOS 5D MK III and the superb Canon 100mm f2.8 L Macro Lens.
We had only a very small time window for this shooting because the shooting was between the marriage ceremony and the ensuing party. So I planned a few settings in advance. One of them was exactly this photo.
Oh yes! I wanted to give the photos a romantic touch so I reworked the photos in a light matte shade of brown tone and made a light beauty retouching (especially for the bride).
In my camera bag
I am not a wedding photographer. This wedding I've photographically escorted more out of goodwill for this couple known by me. Therefore in this case, my equipment is not a benchmark to follow for a wedding. For portrait shootings I always have my full format DSLR and a set of fast primes: 50mm, 85mm, 150mm, often a 105mm macro as well and always the magnificent Sigma 24-35mm f2.0 Art Zoom.
Make a plan and then try to find the best lighting conditions for the realization of your image idea and then photograph your model(s). The most important thing is and remains the light.
