I recently posted a bridal shot of Xinyi and I thought I should explain a bit of the thought process behind it. Basically, it was after sunset and the sky was getting dark fast. I needed to get a shot of the Xinyi’s dress and highlight it’s amazing texture. To do that, I need to a single flash to exposure her properly. The flash was placed at the 90 deg at subject’s right to bring out the texture. Flash power was set at 1/8 and distance to subject is about 2m, barebulb. After a few test shots, the camera setting was decided at ISO 400, f7, 1/100.  I than asked the groom to help throw the veil. After a few tries, we got the shot below.

Back home, I imported the image into Lightroom, adjusted the colors and exported it to Photoshop to clone out the distractions. Here’s the final image again.

Prasadini & Upake traveled all the way from Sydney to Singapore just to get married in the Buddha Tooth Relic temple. It’s such an honor for me to be their photographer in this amazing location. I would also like to thanks Clarice ( from Eternally Yours for bringing everything together flawlessly.
