And here we at last come to the album for Anne Marie and Mark’s wedding. This was a bit of a chore, trying to shoehorn the best of the best pictures into the space alloted, but Colette did a darn good job creating this.
If you’ve done this before, you know what to do. If not, here’s how it works. Click on the album cover above to open up the album viewer. Once the album is open (and it can take a few minutes in places where the internet is slow. Coughtumblerridgecough), you can actually grab the corners of the pages with your mouse and turn the pages. Or hover over the corner and click to turn.
Or, if you prefer, just use the html version, which isn’t as fancy, but might be faster to load where internet is slow. (coughtumblerridgecough).
Okay, so remember how a couple weeks ago I made a post that kinda stretched the rules?
Well, yeah, this one kinda stretches them even farther.
Here was the idea. I could get another photographer to set up a shot, and then I could take over their computer remotely and trigger the shot from here.
But my volunteer was a PC user, and I couldn’t get over that mac/PC divide, so after an hour or two of trying to solve the problem technically, I just told her what I was looking for and got her to push the button herself.
But it was my idea.
And it’s my post processing.
Anyway, this is Nicole.
This is Lisa. She’s getting married tomorrow.
I know what you’re thinking. If I’m shooting her wedding tomorrow, why did I use her as a PAD yesterday (I know, I’m trying to keep up.)?
Because using her as my portrait of the day tomorrow would be too easy. There’ll be dozens of people I can take portraits of. (Unlike today, when everyone ignored me….) So, rather than pick the low hanging fruit (metaphorically), I’m going to challenge myself to take a picture of someone who is not the bride. Yes. The groom. I know. That’s probably who it’ll be. But you never know. I might surprise you.
My sister lives for the time she gets to spend in the bath. She’s a bit of a clean freak, but also, having raised 36 kids (her own or foster), getting a bit of time to herself was a luxury. Sometimes, however, she takes the idea of getting away from it all in the tub a little too far….In this case, hauling the tub from her childhood home in Saskatchewan into the mountains of Northern BC for a bit of a soak.
Look at your model. Now look at mine. Back to your model. Now back to mine. Sadly, your model is not mine, but she could smell like mine if you rubbed her in horse sweat.
She’s on a horse.
Sometimes you just gotta throw caution to the wind, and play. While the photo is fairly simple, I maybe went a little overboard in post. But it was fun. And that’s the whole point of this.
Oh, and the colour? I used two coloured gels for background and hair, and then basically post processed it out. Ah well. This is Shayna.
More photos from Mark and Anne Marie’s wedding up at the Granaries in Dawson Creek. This one is going to be really tough to get down into a book, because there are just so many great pictures. Fortunately, I can put a few more photos into the slideshow than into the book.
Had another killer sunset, so grabbed Lesa and ran for my favourite portrait location. Of course, I missed most of it, but caught that great soft portrait light after the sun has just gone down. All in all, a fair tradeoff….
Yeah, I admit, I like eyes. Especially these ones.
Aiden. Riding his bike. As fast as he can.
