Like most engagement shoots I start out pretty easy going which allows everyone to get into the swing of things. I always have my creativity bells and whistles going but at first I
Wedding Photographer Indonesia. Tito Rikardo shares a wedding photography technique.
The idea is simple, just wanted to make silhouette image a bit different. For this image I used multiple exposure feature in Nikon D600. Multiple exposure is a technique in which the camera shutter is open more than once to expose the film/sensor multiple times, usually to different images.
I chose to use 2 (double) exposure only for this image, actually you can use more than 2 depends on your camera. For first exposure I asked my couple to stand face to face, nose to nose pose in front of a "not too white" wall. With setting f/3.5 , iso 500, 1/320. I tried make the silhouette in the clear shape by over exposed the background so I put nikon sb900 behind them facing the wall with 1/16 power to make sure it's gonna be super white background, and then I got good shape of the couple. I used 85mm Nikon lens by the way.
After the first image I went around the corner to see the city skyline of Kuala Lumpur and make the second image of a bokeh city light image with manual focus. I adjusted only the shutter speed from 1/320 to 1/100 to get the good exposure of the light bokeh. That's it :) the camera merge that two image into single image in camera.
I am in love with the image, so simple. It tells the "inner beauty" of love.
