San Francisco Ed Pingol - Bay Area Wedding Photography: California Wedding Photographer: melissa and edler's aftershoot session

melissa and edler's aftershoot session




commentator: ed

i've been anxiously waiting to post melissa and edler's aftershoot session on the blog (i hope these images are worth waiting for melissa!). if you guys can remember, we shot melissa's engagement photos at stow lake with a nature-ish tropical feel, complete with a waterfall. then their extravagantly modern wedding at caffe verbena in the heart of downtown oakland.

and now it's time for their aftershoot session from the nitty-gritty urban feel of mare island.

again, i encourage every couple to do an aftershoot. why? because you get to don that beautiful gown again that you spent so much money on, without worrying about keeping it clean and take photos with your new spouse, in a relaxed and scenic location, without the hectic schedule of a wedding day.

Lighting info on the first and the last please. And exactly how did you work out the timing on the sunset in that first one. They just happened to be at that exact location at the exact right time with the lighting in place Inquiring minds want to know...

thanks for the compliments my fellow photogs. now, off to the questions...

"Did you light that whole staircase yourself?"
we still had about an hour til sunset so there was still quite a bit of ambient light to light everything up nicely. however, i had monica (my wife) stand behind the stairs and the couple while holding a light stick to "back light" the couple.

"Lighting info on the first and the last please. And exactly how did you work out the timing on the sunset in that first one?"
the sunset shot was done strobist style... first i shot off a couple of test pics to chimp the exposure of the background. when i finally got what i was looking for, i simply adjusted the power of the strobe that is mounted on a monopod triggered by a pocket wizard accordingly to properly expose the couple.

i hope that shed some light into these images. i will be posting how my lighting set-up works and how you can build one yourself in my blog this coming week. so, if you're interested as to how i get some of these images, please stop by sometime and take a look. = )

Your work is incredible. Your photos truly show how much you love making that camera click.

How do you get your images so vibrand - naturally saturate - and contrasty. Would you mind share some of your workflow process? What gear do you use?

Thanks
Henk

How in the WORLD did you light 2 and 3? That's a pretty powerful light in 2 and the 3rd I can't figure out how you could get a light to work back there... was it on the stair by her dress? Did you clamp it on the railing?
