It usually takes us 10 hours to complete a wedding coverage.
Of that 10 hrs, 2 mins is used to set up a shot like what you see here.
5 mins to get the lights up and in sync. A fraction of a second to photograph the actual image itself.
And many more “behind the scene” hours to perfect the image in our digital darkroom (in this case approx. 3 hours) to achieve the finished product.
For those who you who are still skeptical about spending your hard earned money on top drawer professional photographers for the biggest day of your life. Think again. 🙂
The above, are before and after images to demonstrate what I was talking about. Leftmost image being the RAW file while the rightmost is the finished stylized version.
