A couple weeks ago, I talked about how much I enjoy photographing a bride in a veil…it adds such drama to the image. Generally, any time I have the opportunity to add texture to a photograph, it’s a good thing. A veil adds not only texture, but romance too. And given the choice…which, of course, is never really mine to make…I would always choose a full length veil. This photograph is of my beautiful assistant Christina at her wedding this spring….I’m so happy she chose to take this traditional route…and I didn’t even talk her into it.
Photographers, this was shot at dusk, about 15 minutes after the sun had set. I used my Contax 645, 80mm Zeiss lens, wide open at 2.0. Film stock was Kodak Portra 400, pushed to 1600, processed and scanned by Richard Photo Lab, desaturated and toned in post production using Adobe Lightroom.
