After having been taught a style of lighting using natural and tungsten lighting, i off course wanted to test this out.
I researched into this a little more and came across an article in Prophotnut http://www.prophotonut.com/2009/06/17/cherish_the_dress_2/
This article was showing various styles of photography predominantly for wedding dresses. I really loved a few and can’t wait for an opportunity to test this style out myself.
I have a new found fascination with “Movement in photography and so this image really jumped out at me. It is fun and really creative. I am not 100% sure how this is done so some experimentation will need to be done with this style.
This image is almost exactly what i was looking for, using the natural daylight coming in behind the model / bride and then using tungsten to light her up and ensure you have a lll the detail in her face, using a shallow dof and really just lighting her face, this would almost certainly have been shot using a flashgun / video camera lighting.
The sillhoutted image is always a really nice one to capture and this works well by using the natural light behind the subjects, the fact outside is fully lit up and all the detail is still there on the buildings adds a little more drama a effect to the photo.
This is a combination of natural light i think, using the natural light coming through the window at the end of the hall as the background “Blue light” and then placing the model in front of another window and using the natural light to light her up really gives a great I’m, lots of detail to the dress without bleaching it out with too much light, the great shadows to add definition and depth.
