Last night our local wedding photographers group (WPS-Wedding Photographic Society) held our annual "Portrait Palooza" contest. It was a heck of a lot of fun and we had about 25 photographers enter. The idea is that each photographer gets 10 minutes with a "bride" (the brides were models hired for the event). You have to shoot two different shots in 10 minutes or less. The venue was a local wedding hall/restaurant. The kicker is that there are always four photographers and four "brides" shooting at the same time, so if your favorite spot was taken, you had to move on and find another spot.

The photos will be judged by the venue's staff so photos that show off the venue are typically scored higher than those shots that simply feature the bride. Last year I won first place, so I had to work hard to hopefully keep my record. We won't know the results until later but here are my two entries that I thought I would share.

The technical stuff: Each pic was lit with two speedlights, fired by pocketwizards. The key light was fired thru a shoot thru umbrella. The rim light was bare bulb.

I think both shots are terrific. I like the first one because of the curves and leading lines to the subject. Thirds is fun to work with, but sometimes it is not called for as in this image. Great job!!
