Last Saturday morning, our photowalking group decided to try something different. Chris brought a bunch of fancy lights, Julie brought her friends Larin and Jason who had recently got engaged, and we all shot portraits.
Our location (not that it really mattered for this particular shot) was Dunvegan Keep, a fascinating wedding venue tucked away in a suburban neighbourhood of south Austin. The owner has spent the last 20 years transforming his large back yard into a fantasy land containing medieval-looking structures, follies and other wonderful photo backdrops. Add to this a large swimming pool, a wedding chapel and an amazing little suite with stained glass and frescoes and you have a superb location for a very memorable shoot.
This picture was taken inside the gazebo seen on the Dunvegan Keep web site. It was a bit busy, so I chose to use a long lens and grab some tightly-cropped shots. I wasn’t using Chris’ mega-lights here, just a single off-camera SB900 bounced off a Rogue Flashbender acting as fill.
