Recent wedding shot

Second Camera Body Advice

I shoot weddings and portraits and from past couple of years have been going well. At the moment I have D700 & D800. I am looking to retire my D700. I was wondering should I go for D5 (do have a budget for this) or D810 or D750 and save money to get some lighting gear like Phottix Indra500 and not sure which one and best in all...

Wedding Photos and high ISO

When it rains.

This couple had a late spring wedding. As luck would have it, it rained all day until about 9 pm. On top of that, wind gusts were up to 30 mph. Made doing many outdoor shots pretty much out of the question. I was able to get the family portraits on the venue's covered patio area, with two people holding the flash gear.

A couple of shots from a recent wedding

Hey hey y'all, I just wanted to share a few experiments from a recent wedding.
I had just gotten the new Nikon 105mm f/1.4 and was putting it through its paces. The wedding chapel was also close to a freeway overpass that I had been looking at for a while. For a short time in the afternoon the light coming in between the two bridges...

Winter Wedding

I second shot for a good friend of mine and was able to capture this shot. I under exposed the ambient about 1 1/2 stops and use OCF to get this dramatic look, that I love.

Question: does anyone else find being the SECOND shooter on a wedding far more fulfilling that being the main one? lol I DIG shooting as a second, because it means I get to do crazy hide-in-the-bushes paparazzi stuff and focus on...

Canon Radio Wireless Speedlights and St E3 RT transmitter

Hi Everyone!
I am fairly new to using the canon speed light system and have a question. I recently bought 2 ST E3 RT transmitters for each of my camera bodies and I have 3 canon 430 ex III RT and 1 600EX RT. I tried setting up my flashes last night with my transmitters by doing the following.
I set up both transmitters to be in...

The Nikon 105mm f/1.4 is my new love

Nikon D750
Nikkor 105mm f/1.4
With the new 105mm opened wide, the busy texture of this background turns into a fairy-tale swirl of cats-eye bokeh. This added a beautifully romantic look to what was actually a small strip of green behind an industrial estate.

Lighting help!

Hello, I was asked to shoot a wedding in April and mainly have everything planned but lighting... so I was wondering what brands to look at for lighting and what is your go to lighting?!

Thank you!


I am very proud of this photo, but not so proud that I won't welcome CC. My goal is to always grow as photographer and to stay humble no matter what success I may find.

If you see something that would have improved this shot please do not keep it to yourself.


a beautiful wedding full of enchantment !
