Lighting for Weddings: Down & Dirty Glamour Light
It’s the end of the night, there was no time, their wedding was in a boxing gym, and I didn’t have any photos of them outside this awesome façade. This shot used a video light to fill in the shadows, and ambient light from behind the couple. No tripod, but I was sitting on the ground bracing myself as best I could and instructing them to hold as still as possible.
Last but not least, the exit with sparklers! We could just shoot it with on-camera flash, but that’s no fun! I gave an LP160 to my VAL, who ran behind them. It was set to 1/64 power 7′ behind the couple, and I used my on-camera flash with a small Sto-Fen mounted on top.
