At a recent wedding, I was working to get images of people at the brides house before the bride arrived. The gal here is a VIP of the wedding and I was lucky enough to have time to create some dramatic shots of her while we waited for the bride to make her appearance. The background here is the curtains in the living room. I moved her as far away from the background as I could, and kept my F-stop rather low (2.0). Combined with camera right off-camera flash we were able to punch in some light and still have a great deal of hair light rimming from the sun coming in through a window that was above the brown curtains.
Hope you all enjoy!
