View 40: Lost that Lovin’ Feeling

Top Gun Serenade

Top Gun Serenade

Weddings are fun to photograph especially when I am only a guest and free to roam without having to worry about what I need to capture for my clients. This past weekend I attended the wedding of my cousin’s son seen here serenading his bride with The Righteous Brothers’ Lost that Lovin’ Feeling a la Top Gun. Since both my cousin and his son are Air Force, it was a fun and fitting song with many of the guys in attendance joining in. Thankfully, the DJ did this karaoke style. Oh, yeah, my cousin, a former F16 fighter jet pilot, is next to his son getting into the song. Way to go guys!

    I took a series during the performance and this one had the best expressions, especially the bride’s.

    What delight on the bride’s face. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. The contrast between the background and the featured participants brings our focus directly to each individual. Well done. I’m curious about your flash. This will be a photo to treasure in the years to come.

    I used a Nikon SB-600 speedlight bounced off the ceiling and set to TTL and -0.3 power.

    Unlike the SB-800, the SB-600 doesn’t have a slide out reflector but it’s a great bouncer. 🙂 For those times I need a reflector, I bought one that velcros to the flash unit.

    I LOVE this picture! There is such positive energy in this photo!
    By the way, thanks for the kind comment on my blog…I’ve been kicking myself that I agreed to take a picture a day when all of my friends have such better equipment than I do, but you reminded me that it’s okay~ Thanks!! 🙂
