Crystal and Devon

Originally uploaded by

This was a Portrait session done on March 14, 2010. It was actually a photo seminar put up by Jigar (A local wedding/engagement photographer) He setup a 4 part session starting with planning, actual shooting, editing, and post processing. He was able to find this couple (Crystal and Devon) whom recently got engaged. There were 7 photographers chasing them around North Beach, SF for a good 3 hours. Very nice couple and quite photogenic.
The day was beautiful. I couldn’t asked for a better photo shooting weather. It was a big change from all the raining weather we been getting here. As such, I found out that I ended up under exposing a lot of my shots since there was so much light around. The session started around 2:00pm and ended around 5:00pm. The set show here are my favorite 5 pictures. The couple were wearing a black and white theme thus I had to leverage their clothing and converted couple shots as black and white.
Overall, it was a great experience. Learned quite a bit about how to approach and converse with the subjects. I must say, doing couple portraits really made me think more about composition and modeling the couple.
All the shots were done with Canon 5D MKII and Canon 85mm 1.2L
