Pete and Kristi's Wedding, Ardiri Winery June

I just finished editing down the images from last weeks wedding for Pete and Kristi. They wanted mainly candid images with a few 'formal' shots (got to get out my lights). Overall I'm happy considering the size of the wedding (55 people) and the very loose and fluid arrangement. Even though I'm not a huge fan of shooting weddings, if the right people ask and they want more informal images - it isn't that bad.

More 35mm 1.4 tests

35MM 1.4 Tests

I rented a 35mm 1.4 lens to use during a wedding I'm shooting on Saturday. I just got it back tonight and will have it until Monday. For anyone in Portland, if you rent a lens from Pro Photo Supply for Friday you get it all weekend, return on Monday for a 1 day price. That includes picking it up on Thursday after 3 pm. that is 3 solid days, 4 with 2 1/2's combined for the price of 1 day.

Anyways, here are the samples I took just now to study the extreme f1.4 depth of field and image quality this lens is capable of. I especially like the guitar string example because it also shows the optical fallout horizontally as the depth of field diminishes.
