Creative Self-portrait – Ottawa Wedding PhotographerFebruary 2, 2010

In my quest to find unique,  creative and contemporary images for my wedding clients, I am often times forced to throw myself into the shot to try an idea on for size. This night was no exception. While out for a night of fine dining, I could not help but notice this spot begging my indulgence.  The black taffeta dress couldn’t have made a better set-up against this setting either.  So, I set up the shot and went for it.
And after seeing what I can do without looking…I can’t wait to get one of my couples into this backdrop for some spectacular and creative wedding photography. Any volunteers??

p.s. for the photographer nerds, ’cause I know your out there…this was shot at ISO 3200, 1/5th at f4 22mm. I love the grain…custom BW in LR to leverge the graininess ….
