(Finalist October 2008 and Finalist December Monthly them)

One of the images I took in my first wedding coverage. I found out that taking wedding portraits is difficult because you don't have the luxury of time to compose and pose the people. Though, I found it a good challenge.

Exif: F Number: 2.8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/400 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 59.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D
