They're Getting Married!

They're getting married! I post this picture today because today these two are getting married. I took this picture of my friends about a year ago and I've always really liked it. It was taken on a rock in the middle of a pond at the University of Toronto. We were out to test shoot some 35mm motion picture film so we had all the lighting gear. I just snapped this photo nice and quickly and it turned out really well. Compositionally, I'd probably go back and change it a bit (get their feet in etc) but it still turned out great I think.

VV helped with some tweaks, thanks very much to him.

PP: some highlight removal, scratch removal (it was shot on 35mm), very minor colour adjustments.

This has an interesting "studio" quality to it, and I like the way you left "just enough" background detail, well done and congratulations to the happy couple

Take more photos of people, you really are quite good at it. That is all.
Iain Myrans: Thanks smile I'll try! I have a hard time approaching people on the street. I'm gonna miss those D.C. photo's on Matt's photoblog sad

Congrates to the happy couple, the lighting does not work to well for me but it's okay smile

Also the guy's face is slightly out of focus. However me will stop being such a twit and a nit picker and admit on the whole, it's a good capture, like the way they are sat on the rock, them looking into the camera, the background not too distracting. Good use of rule of 3rds.

Well done.

Iain Myrans: Well in fairness the lighting was not set up for portraits, it was set up for a film shoot - i was just making do when I took this. It's not out of focus. the shot was taken at a slow shutter speed on 100 ISO film since it's all I had at the time -- it's motion blur.
*sound of stupid crowd going wild*

Hello everyone and welcome to this episode of 'pimp my photo!'. We are here with master photo pimpers VV and Sparklite, and today we have a beautiful photo of a very happy couple who are about to get married. Our MTV Live corrispondant Snoop Dogg is live with the couple now to ask them a few questions, over to you Snoop...

Snoop: yo dawgs, so i hear you are gettin' hitched, that's off the shizzle for drizzle baby, how's that feel?
The Happy Couple: we are so happy together, it's been a great last few years......
Snoop: That's great yo, but check out my new album, 'the dogg is off the chain' comin' out on Fizzle Shizzle records next week, back to you MTV guy... fo shizzle!

Thanks Snoop for the excelent interview.. wow, that dogg really does dive deep... Anyways, on pimp my photo today, we are going to take this excelent photo and turn it into an overly post processed glowing neon coloured sign, perfect for hanging from the rear view mirror of your new tripped out honda civic, or perhaps your pimped up mail truck... We'll be right back after a short comercial break.. so Stay Turned...

*note: this show was canceled during that short comerical break, due to the fact that MTV execs thought it sucked... after the comercial break viewers were treated to an hour of music videos from snoop doggs greatest hits*
