Before & After
Photographing weddings can be quite challenging. Mother nature and wedding venues will test your skills as a photographer. In this wedding, the late afternoon sun was directly behind my subject. The Bodega Bay Yacht Club doesn't offer many choices to photograph a subject. All I had to work with was a parking lot. But the view of the bay was spectacular. So, I made Lemonade. We photographers have to wear many hats. We need to know lighting, posing, composition, balancing off camera flash with the sun and clouds. Not to mention the sun kept popping through the clouds randomly. Add to the mix, a wedding planner telling me that I only have 10 minutes and a bride & groom that are itching to get into the reception and join their guests. But we photog's some how make it work. After I applied my photographic skills out on location, then I used my photoshop skills to complete the presentation.
