July 17, 2013Today's challenge is shadows. Lew picked the theme for this week. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac and Lew.
This was another crazy-busy week. The wedding that I had been preparing for took place on Sunday. Now I get to pour through a bazillion images to select and edit and finish the work. I honestly do not know how long it will take me to get it all done. I'm guessing two or three weeks. I was going to have one assistant (Mrs. Craver) to help organize poses and another assistant to shoot photos. Unexpectedly, my wife overcame her shyness of DSLRs and used my backup Pentax (borrowed) to snap some excellent photographs! While I formally get credit for today's header, it was technically my wife who pressed the shutter button.
Normally, when I think of our themes, I look for photographs that view the theme from a favorable position. This was not the case for a wedding shoot. The strong shadows, seen below the gazebo made it tricky to get a good shot during the actual ceremony.
If you're wondering why I didn't take this picture myself, it's because I'm IN the picture. You'll find me shooting in stealth mode as unobtrusively as possible between some columns on the bridesmaids' side.
