Ladies’ Man originally uploaded by foolscircle.

This was my favorite photo from yesterday’s nine hour shoot. After Toddy and Cassie’s wedding ceremony yesterday, we shot some quick formal portraits in the church and then did a number of scenic ones on the lawn behind the hotel where the reception was being held.

I always like these moments, because I get to experiment a little with my portraits for a few minutes. Even though it was kind of warm out in the sun (it is Arizona, after all), everyone was a total trooper and let me direct the photos without any whining.

The lighting was kind of extreme, so in order to get this perspective I used my fisheye lens and then put a filter over the pop-up flash in order to soften the shadows a bit. Because the D80 will only go up to 1/200 when you use a flash, I had to crank up the F-stop number in order to prevent the photo from being completely washed out.

Anyway, this was meant to be a test shot, but everyone’s expression was so perfect that I ended up keeping this one as a final portrait.
