Thank you. I had 2 600's speed lights but one was completely dead so just one speed light off to the right.

I feel you still could have salvaged the shot, left it on the tripod and move the light, then combine the two images. I used to do this when i had one light, would do numerous shots with one light and combine them all in photoshop. Just add the layer and change the blend mode to lighten

Fantastic work! Tell us more about that pano-edit. It's a very effective image imo...heart-shapes seem really hokey usually, but this has a wow to it. Impressive. :)

Thanks, but I can only take a bit of credit for it. The idea was the brides. I have asked all the brides I photograph if they have seen any images that they really like and if they are interested in me trying my version of that image. I never saw the original, but the bride described the heart shape made by the guests around the newlyweds. It was the only shot that she wanted. I gave her my regular shooting list and all she she told me to 'take the pictures you want and think would be best'. Great couple and family. All of them. On the wedding day it rained but at one point just before dinner, the rain stopped and the sky cleared up a bit. Earlier in the day we found a twelve foot ladder at the cottage that they were renting and that's what I used to get up high. I am not afraid of heights - I've stood at the edge of some serious cliffs and looked over, been up tall trees, and racked-up a boundle of frequent flier miles, but ladders... Ladders scare the daylights out of me. This was a 'suck it up' moment for me.

Once I was up the ladder I had everyones attention and had them form a ring. It was actually really easy to direct. The perspective gave me the ability to accurately point at a group and ask them to shuffle in and out until the heart shape was formed. It went really smooth.

I took two passes with the camera in portrait orientation, about 7 shots each pass. The first pass was f8 and the second was f11 (I wasn't sure f8 would be enough DOF). The image above is a stitch of only two (maybe three) frames from the first pass. I let Lr stitch it and was really impressed. I exported to Ps to swap about 5 faces for better expressions and to fix a bit of grass, but other than that Lr really did all of the work. It's a nice big file, which is great. The couple asked for it to be printed the largest of all of the prints they ordered. The bride described the picture as the way she felt during the day "so happy to be surrounded by the people we love".

Thanks for explaining your process - really helpful. I agree with David, it's an amazing image and I'm sure it will look great printed large. As for the ladder, I'm with you there too - I climb the hills round here and scramble up the rocks but show me a ladder and my knees turn to jelly!

Another treasure thread - and the lens itself is a treasure too ;) incredibly versatile. I use my copy mainly for landscapes.

Hello all. Joining the club with an early Christmas present.

Apart from the dizzying heights of a 2.8 zoom, I'm very excited about sun stars all of a sudden.

Here is my first which was a quick effort whilst on a walk with the little monsters spotting christmas lights.
F20 :-)

The sun was very active yesterday. Aurora Borealis just north of Oslo:

AB light image above is amazing!

My bonding time with this new lens is nearly complete; it always takes a little time!

A couple from the weekend...

I think this is a perfect lens really!
You can really do almost anything with it and it is outstanding at almost everything.
I am hoping to use it for decades! :-)
