If I can pinpoint one characteristic of my wedding photos it is using a 300 mm F2.8 lens to capture portraiture during weddings. Sometimes it is a good thing to come out of one’s comfort zone and try something totally different, and that is just what I did at the last two weddings I captured during February and March this year.
Here are a few of those images that I took with the Nikon 14-24mm F2.8 lens. I just want to mention that I used an “off” camera flash that was held by a mobile stand….mmm…sidekick….okay…..assistant. I over exposed the flash by one stop and under exposed the ambient light by one stop. Further I zoomed the flash to 85mm to just lit a part of the image. As Joe McNally always say…..if you want to draw peoples attention to your images don’t lit it at al…!!

Another lens I am using a lot these days, is the Nikon 85mm F1.4 lens. Here is a portrait that I took with this lens during Madelein and Frikkie’s wedding on Saturday 10 March 2012.
