Based in Timisoara, Romania, with a love of travelling to amazing destinations to document your biggest day of your life. I fell in love with the photography while I was working in
Wedding Photographer Spain. Arnau Dalmases shares a wedding photography technique.
I saw Ray teaching his groomsmen how to tie a bow-tie. The light in the room was really good, coming in from a window just above them. I walked around them looking for the best spot and then I just waited for the perfect moment. After shooting a few photos I came up with 4-5 different ones and this shot was the best! The composition was much stronger by focusing the hands instead of the head and that was a decision I made when taking this shot. You can feel the concentration through the mouth of the groomsmen.
The place was really small and I needed to be carefully to not step in anyone when maneuvering around the room. The shot was taken using a Canon 5D Mark II, 85mm 1.8 at f.3,5 1/100 ISO 400, I metered the light in the hand and overexposed a little bit in camera.
I edited the shot in Lightroom, general levels, contrast, color and after I edited the bow-tie and the hands separately in order to give them more strength.
We all love the shot, even the groomsmen :-)
