Beth and Mike got married yesterday at The Glen Manor in Portsmouth RI It was a lovely day for two wonderful people. If you haven’t been to the Glen Manorm, it is spectacular! What a beautiful place! Simply Devine Catering was prepared the food and Robin Hollow Farm prepared the flowers. Everything went off perfectly we photographed all the formal photos before the ceremony, which was outside. Directly after the ceremony we gathered up all the guests and I took a big group shot of everyone and then the cocktail hour started a which was inside and within seconds it started to rain! What amazing timing. We just made it! No problems at all! I think we ended up with some really beautiful photos, don’t you?
I have been seeing alot of HDR photography lately on the web and frankly most of it is pretty boring to me. Like a new toy photographers have gotten it is over used as of late. But some HDR can be really great. So I thought I would try my hand at it. I hope I didn’t fall prey to the siren song of HDR. If I start posting lots of these types of images please remind me of this post…
For those of you who don’t know about HDR or what it is. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and it combines multiple exposures into one final photo. I took three photo at Astors in Newport at a wedding a few weeks back and took some time to blend them using the new Photoshop CS5 HDR I like it. Here are two images dark and light that I started from I also took a middle exposure not posted but I think you can get the idea here.
And this is what we ended up with. Let me know what you think?
Bunches of wonderful Caterers descended on the Towers last night for a fantastic night of great food, and drink in this wonderful location right on the Ocean. My estimate would be 300 guests, and everyone was smiling! What a lovely night it was! You can see the Towers website here

A wonderful event that I was proud to be a part of. Here are the photos from that wonderful day!
More in my series showing the behind the scenes of portrait sessions. Working with pretty people always helps… Lucky for me I had a beautiful woman to work with. I was using 3 lights for this portrait. two up and behind her about 5 feet away from her with no modifiers on them at all, just the speed ring/reflectors. For those of you aren’t photographers that is just a small silver ring to generally point the light one direction. I was shooting in an office building see the florecent lights and power strip on the wall … I just over powered the lights in the room with my lights so you aren’t seeing any of those in the final shot. My main light which was a light shot thru an umbrella was set up above her and to my right but as close as I could get it to her about maybe 3 feet away, because I wanted that light to be as soft as possible. I used the regular green wall as a backdrop. We ended up with a dramatic image! Dig it!
