Bride portrait
Lens: Pentax 18-55mm Camera: Pentax K10D Photo Location: Indiana ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: Mayberrygal, 05-30-2017, 01:32 PM

This was from the first wedding I shot after getting my first DSLR, a Pentax K10D, so I shot it several years ago. In fact, I only had my kit lenses at the time, so this was shot with the standard 18-55mm. I positioned the bride in a hallway, close to a north-facing window. There was a sconce behind her and to the left that provided separation and a nice gradation of light on the wall behind her. It also provided a warm glow that I liked. This is one of my favorite photos from that wedding.

A lovely meditative pose which most likely well portrays her mood. Good job!

Lovely photograph. Kit lens or not, it does show that the photographer is the most important factor.
