Beach Wedding 3

Beach Wedding 3
Made by John Kroetch Photography
I deliberately wanted to highlight the bride in this shot, so I placed the SB-800 behind a pillar to the left. The angle was too low, I think and it was bare-bulb so it caused quite a harsh shadow. After a treatment in photoshop to erase the color elsewhere, I think the photo works. I'd do things a little differently the next time if I had an assistant or a stand. :)

Christmas in Tulum: Squid & Margaritas

Christmas in Tulum: Squid & Margaritas
Made by Gromyko
Our housekeeper Vincente went fishing with just a snorkel and a small sling-shot/spear contraption. He came back to shore with 2 spiny lobsters, a squid, and a large fish that he called a Mera (?) Aaron checks out the squid while handling some margaritas.

Reclining Bride

Reclining Bride
Made by John Kroetch Photography
A shot of the bride reclining indoors. The lighting changed on me (it was beautiful sidelight the day before) so I had to compensate with flash from upper right (held by the groom no less). Strobist: 1 SB-800 upper-right, some fill from on-camera.
