90% of my wedding images don’t use a lot of specialty equipment. The vast majority of images are capture with nothing more than the camera and the right choice of lens. The image at the right is one of the exceptions. Even though I don’t shoot with a lot of extra gear, I always bring at least a couple of flashes along with some Pocketwizard radio transmitters just in case the need arises.
It started snowing after dinner at this March wedding. I knew the slow falling large flakes could potentially make a good photo. So I took out the flash and attached it to one of the radio receivers. Carin took the flash behind the couple, and after a couple of tries we ended up with this image. The single flash not only back lit the couple but also lit up the snow around them to create a really unusual image.
