A great crowd today at Matt and Lucy’s wedding in Toronto. And so Kristof B and I, who shot the wedding together, thought of a crowd shot:
For this shot, I used:
- Two strobes (big flashes), one on the left and one on the right; powered by a battery.
- To overpower the sun we set the strobes to full power, which gave us f/8 at 1/250th second and 100 ISO. That’s dark enough to get a nice dark background even in full sunlight!
- I used a wide angle lens (16-35mm on a ful frame camera)
- And finally, I used a stool to stand on. That gave me an angle which allowed all the crowd to be visible.
Great crowd, great wedding, great light. And I hope you agree, a great shot.
