Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Laurel Hall, built in 1916, in Indianapolis, IN.
Time
The image was taken late in the afternoon after the ceremony. We had started taking some photos with the bride and groom outside, but it began to rain, so we moved into the interior. The bride wanted to capture the beautiful staircase playfully.
Lighting
I wanted to utilize the natural light coming from the stain glass windows, but to get a bit more depth of field, I used some fill flash on a softbox to push a bit more light onto the bride's dress.
Equipment
I used a Canon 5d Mark III with a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens, with a Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT off-camera flash with a 24x32 Impact softbox triggered by a Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter.
Inspiration
I knew the bride was going to want some interior photos of the beautiful venue. So with the help of my assistant and second shooter, we came up with the idea of telling a story of the groom seeking his bride by having him on the lower level looking up towards his awaiting bride.
Editing
My post-processing starts with Lightroom where apply lens corrections, tweak exposure for highlights and shadows, adjust color balance, and dial down digital noise as much as possible. From there I run the image into the software program called On1 Photo where apply and tweak custom-made effects to each image according to the feel and mood I'm seeking.
In my camera bag
In my camera bag, I usually carry an extra battery and memory card, lens wipes, a remote trigger, and a variety of go-to zoom lens since I shoot a lot of events I need the versatility of zooms over prime lenses.
Feedback
My advice to other photographers is to always listen to what your client is asking for regardless of the photo assignment. If possible scout the location beforehand.
