Winters Barns Wedding

My website: Wedding Photographers in Kent

A selection of images from Jill and Seb's wedding photographed on Saturday at the Winters Barns near Canterbury. Please check out their wedding gallery.

1/1250, f/1.4, ISO 400, ‒ 1 EV, 35mm f/1.4L

Negative exposure compensation (EC) because of the predominant dark tones.

1/400, f/1.4, ISO 400, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 35mm f/1.4L

1/640, f/1.6, ISO 400, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 35mm f/1.4L

For the three shots above you might wonder why I didn't adjust the ISO setting to 100. The reason was that I was also shooting at f/2.8 and an ISO setting of 400 gave a suitable shutter speed at both these apertures.

1/100, f/2.8, ISO 800, ⅓ EV, 16mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

1/200, f/1.8, ISO 400, ⅓ EV, 35mm f/1.4L

1/320, f/2.8, ISO 200, 0 EV, 35mm, 16-35mm f/2.8L II

The sun was fierce and reasonably low in the sky when I shot the groups on Saturday afternoon and this was the only location with 'open shade' that I could find with flattering light. No horrible shadows or burnt out highlights.

1/3200, f/1.2, ISO 50, ‒ 1 EV, 85mm f/1.2L II

1/1250, f/2, ISO 50, ‒ 1 EV, 85mm f/1.2L II

1/100, f/4, ISO 50, ⅓ EV, 85mm f/1.2L II

1/1250, f/1.4, ISO 50, ‒ ²⁄₃ EV, 85mm f/1.2L II

In the four shots above, Gill and Seb were carefully placed to make the most of the location and the light. Notice how the EC changes.

Comments or queries are welcome as ever.

I'm guessing you're getting a few winter weddings then. For some reason, I don't get many of those - those I get feel like free money :) What's your secret?
