Portrait of a couple

By r0nn1e    
I was shooting the photos for the Birmingham Univeristy Law Ball 2020 and had my 3 Godox 300 lights and white background set up two with Godox 60cm softboxes either side and one in a large Godox Octagon Soft Box to the back of me as a low poewer fill in light. This couple came onto the area and were trying to stand in a nice close way but failing. Even though I had a queue of several people waiting I took the time to pose them so that they looked close and showed they were in love. To me anyway she looked snuggled and showed that she felt safe in his arms. Where he looked both manly and caring at the same time and proud to have her in his arms. They loved the photo very much.

I would not have pressed the shutter release button unless his tie was sitting higher on the collar to hide the top shirt button. The pair are asked to view at the lens and the burden of correcting any minor stylist details falls on the first person who sees the frame. The photographer who takes the picture.

I agree with your comment about the tie. No excuses I missed it while making it a better portrait with pose I missed it. If it were a photo shoot rather than a portrait stolen at an event it would never have happened. I was going to move the tie up in Photoshop last night but forgot and posted it without editing.

The affection they have for each other shines through. The slight tie issue remind me of my wedding picture, pity they had not such tools ages ago...

Excellent image but your logo is a little distracting... I would make it smaller...

Thanks Isabel
I normally take them off if posting on here it was a deterrent for copying really.
