This past Saturday I had the pleasure of shooting photos to commemorate the engagement of a beautiful couple. Our setting was at the fabulous Smith Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw, GA. Sixteen acres of lovely blooms, trees and foliage! Doug, the manager, was gracious enough to allow them to use the apartment above the Carriage House to change outfits.
It was simply a lovely time. We shot between 9am and 10:30am. It was overcast but still bright. I encountered a problem: the bride-to-be, wore white, as did the groom-to-be. together, they reflected off of each other and created a "blow out" nightmare. I had my ISO set at L1, the lowest I could go. I wanted to get some good bokeh, but the 1.8 f-stop
still let in too much light. Here is the result:
Good thing, it wasn't the wedding photos! I need to figure out what to do next time I have this situation. I am thinking that I need to underexpose? Anyone have any ideas out there?
