Wedding Photographer - Deal, Kent

1/125, f/4, ISO 1000, +2/3 EV, -1/3 FEC, 35mm (16-35)

1/80, f/2.8, ISO 1250, -1/3 EV, 85mm (85)

Light levels in the church were good but there were spotlights giving high contrast light. I had to frame shots very carefully to minimise flare.

1/100, f/2.2, ISO 1000, 0 EV, 35mm (35)

1/160, f/2.8, ISO 1000, 0 EV, 35mm (35)

1/60, f/4, ISO 800, +1/3 EV, -2/3 FEC, 35mm (16-35)

1/125, f/2.8, ISO 2000, 0 EV, 70mm (24-70)

The bride's reaction when the minister described her husband as "a bit of a geek". He does work in IT but nonetheless...

1/200, f/2.8, ISO 1600, 0 EV, -2/3 FEC, 35mm (16-35)

1/160, f/2.8, ISO 1000, 0 EV, 200mm (70-200)

There was a small area of grass available for group shots and the bride and groom portraits. Unfortunately there were lots of distractions in the background so it was shallow depth of field time.

1/250, f/1.2, ISO 500, -1/3 EV, 85mm (85)

1/320, f/1.2, ISO 500, -1/3 EV, 85mm (85)

1/320, f/5.6, ISO 2500, 0 EV, +1/3 FEC, 16mm (16-35)

The intimidating sight of live action role players!

One of the more unusual bride and groom portraits I've taken!

1/200, f/2.8, ISO 3200, 0 EV, 0 FEC, 35mm (16-35)

Lower light levels in the reception hall but with a 5D Mark II, it's not a problem.

David,

When using flash in AV mode, but trying to capture ambient lite in backgrounds, do you take your meter reading from the background (without the main subject) then recompose with the subject and let the flash balance itself? Or just meter the whole scene, and adjust EV?

Thanks!
