Rebecca the close up was taken with a 17-40mm lens, the catchlights are the reflection from the sea which was sparkling because of very low evening sunshine.

Believe it our not Donna that last one was taken with a very old 28-135mm 5.6 lens i have, lighting was provided by tungsten stage lights. I enhanced this with painting with light technique. Also some lucis thrown in and a very neat blur action by Pam atdpreview. It was taken in a school when they were preparing for a talent competition.

Neal

ps border is one of hundreds i have but i always seem to forget about them, i dont like using them in shots for the newspaper as usually they bloody crop the pic from one side and it then looks stupid !

Neal "break Dancer" is a great capture.......and it just goes to show that all the greatest lenses in the world are no match to the eye of the person actually taking the photograph...and nicely worked over too by the way!!!

Another great shot.. did you tell them to pose or do you just follow them as they go ??

Neal, i did one wedding about 12 years ago and its a nightmare...
I was on edge all day.
Think i took around 180 shots on 35mm film.
I couldnt sleep all night until i seen the finished photo's..
The couple where over the moon with them but i dont think i could ever
do it again..


Cheers Ronnie

A mixture of both Ronnie, on that last one i get them in close and tell then to play nose tennis or for the little guy to give mummy and daddy a kiss, i then just click away as things happen.

Ok last one, dont want to be accused of show boating........

Neal,
All the wedding photographs are great.
I really like the outside colour one, very nice soft blend to it.

Thought i would share these photographs with you, sadly not taken by me but a friend in the RAF. I have clearance etc to post them though.
Figured they gave a good idea where i live and also the town of Donaghadee about 3 miles from my house. Just waiting on clearance now for insurance and i should be buzzing the air over my town in about 3 weeks taking my own pics !!!!!!!!!!! Can you tell i am excited !!!!!!!!!

ps the little X is my house

Cool pics that second one is crazy. Flying a plane and taking pictures could be dangerous like a cell phone and driving a car......

Neal just had a run through your gallery and I love the break dancer pic. Wedding photos were not like yours ones in my days. They were very formal groups, not relaxed at all.

Hi Ronnie that is Donaghadee, you may remember a photo i worked some time ago of the said lighthouse. Yes a touch of Lucis, like i said before i did not take the pics but hope to take some like it in about 3 weeks time.
Behind the plane the next stretch of water is Strangford Lough and area of outstanding natural beauty and protected site and behind that again is the Mourne Mountains....... like in the song.sweep down to the sea !!!!!

Thanks Katie, yes wedding photography these days is all about relaxed informal pics, yes you still need to take the posed traditional ones like the couple coming down the aisle and the ones outside the church door etc but young couples these days all seem to want a modern approach and the new collage type albums.
