Underwater love (from a wedding photoshoot at Infiniti Hotel). There is a backstage and screen recording of my work in Photoshop inside this article:
The wedding took place in a villa; there was a window in the villa’s pool. I feel thankful to the architect, and I used that for my shots. A skilful architect is a great catch for a skilful photographer.
I had to shoot through that quite small window. I decided to use my wide-angle zoom Canon 24 f/1.4 so I got the possibility to capture more space than we really had. Good sharpening is the result of using f/8 diaphragm. I used the Canon speedlite 600ex-rt with a big white umbrella as a main light source as usual.
I shot this at night. For good focusing in darkness I used 2700 lumens photoflood. The flash is much more powerful than the photoflood, that’s why you can’t notice the photoflood in my photo.
This video is a screen recording of my post-editing in Photoshop. I remove the artifacts and cut the hair from the other photo. That’s not difficult. It’s just a live screen recording of my work in Photoshop.
And a little bit of romance at the end: the video is about the newly-weds’ perfect day. You can find a small part of the photoshoot in the last minutes of the video.
Underwater love (backstage & photoshop lesson).
That’s all for now.
