As the title implies, this photo was the end of the shoot at the hotel where Todd and Cassie’s wedding reception took place. It’s also one of my favorites.

You see, when you shoot theatre photos, there tends to be one truly goofy photo of the entire cast in the bunch.  I know, I know: it’s juvenile and stupid, but everyone ends up having a great time.  I mean, honestly, who doesn’t enjoy making faces at the camera?

I basically used the same photo technique for this shot as I did for the playful portrait of Todd yesterday: fisheye lens, flash, higher F-stop ratio.  While this may not be the type of portrait some people like, I really enjoyed the softer shadows and color intensity brought about by this method.

It really helps when your subjects are people you know as friends: they tend to let you experiment a little with the photos, and it really helps when everyone involved has a good sense of humor.  The facial expressions and poses I managed to snag during this shoot were great, and I was really happy with the results.
