I did some beautiful bridal portraits after my Indian wedding at the Grande Dunes. The members club is a great spot with the golf course out back. It was a little different to do the bridal portraits after the wedding, but it worked out well. I’m learning how to use fill flash more effectively for example in the shot of the bride looking out over the golf course. It was very dark in the area where she was standing compared to the background in the bright sun. If I had just exposed for her, the background would be blown out and white. However, exposing somewhat for the background and filling in the bride with some flash, gives very nice results. Of course you can never beat the light coming in from a big window. I hope you enjoy some of them below.
I’ve included some images below from last weekend’s wedding up in North Myrtle Beach that feature use of the Nikon 70-200 f2.8 lens. The Nikon 24-70 f2.8 that I probably do 90% of my photography with is one of the best lenses ever made, however there is just something special about the 70-200 f2.8, when I’m in a location that I can use it. Because of the focal length, I have to be typically outdoors with plenty of room to maneuver and typically for closeups, that is why it doesn’t get used all that much. I hope you enjoy the images.
