Karina #2

By jeanie    
I have worked on this image since initially uploading it, taking on board the ideas and suggestions that were offered, especially from K - thank you K.

I just hope it works this time and that the bride herself likes this shot.

Does it work better this way, with her bridal bouquet used as a background?

All advice and suggestions welcomed.

I'm no expert but I love to see more unusual wedding shots and this really appeals to me-hope the bride likes it as much!

Very wide lighting ratio - the shadows are quite dark for what would more usually be a less dramatically lit subject, but it does work.

Fantastic, Jeanie!! Very Very nice. At first I thought the background of this was the train of the dress being held up (I thought of that because my wife had a picture taken like that).

THis is an excellent piece of work. Has the bride seen it yet??

Thank you Mike, Mike and Dougie.
Yes I am proud of her and she will get the photos this weekend. I finally finished printing etc and put them all into a special album for her and her hubby. The proof is in the pudding so I will soon find out if I did well or not....

I cannot think why she would not like it,if this is anything to go by. It is stunning.

Hello Jeanie, In the past I have carried out the photography of a few weddings and presented the couple with the photographs as a present, but I tend to shy away from the responsibilities have a full range of light in this shot which compliments the brides beauty...the pale background has its own beauty in harmonizing with the dress. Very nice and credit to your camera work.

Thank You John,
If I can do it, you can! I was terrified and at one point was stood on the side,then remembered I was the main photographer, so brazened it....just got on with it after that....with help from Trev who was father of the bride/photographers assistant, bless him : )

The added background was a lovely idea well executed.

The one thing that slightly spoils it (for me) is that the rose above her head looks like a continuation of the veil, so I would move it over a bit.

Thanks Len.
I had not even noticed the rose in that context till you spotted it.. well noted. Thanks
