November 28, 2011 The Darkest Area

The time stamp on this photo said 10:06 PM. Yes, there’s NO light here.

Photos are nice in daylight, and equally wonderful during sunset, but sometimes I only want to photograph at night because the options for creative lighting is almost endless.

I led Fahad and Ayisha to a pitch black area where my LED lights were the only source of light used to see where we were standing or going. It was so dark that my eyes couldn’t make out where they were standing even though they were a few feet away from me. Thanks to the Live View feature, this just wasn’t a concern.  I was able to make out where they were and manually focus this shot.

It pays to be prepared for not having any natural light, or in this case, purposely going to the darkest area.

Meet Johny and Swapna. Living in New Jersey, working near Ground Zero, and getting Married in a few weeks in India. Given how difficult it was to schedule a session we had an extended engagement session and broke it up into a couple of days. Given how daring the both of them were for photo opportunities, it was only fare that I tore my jeans for the last shot.

Enjoy! Congrats!
