And now, a slight departure from my usual Blog content; here is a portrait I created of my eldest son Kenneth and his French wife Joséphine following their wedding at the magnificent Eglise Saint Jean church in Luxembourg City.
I’m pretty chuffed with this creation! Before retiring from business, I had been a professional portrait and wedding photographer for over 20 years and back in the day I would cover 50 plus weddings a year. I couldn’t do that now and nor would I wish to; even after a relatively short time since retiring I think I would be pretty rusty now. Wedding photography requires dedication and practise on a weekly basis to keep up the skill levels. However, not wishing to become an “Uncle Bob” (i.e. a guest shooting over the shoulders of the official photographer) I bid my time then asked Kenneth & Joséphine to move into a shaded area using “good light” to illuminate the couple; this together with image toning enhanced the intricate detail seen in Joséphine’s beautiful wedding dress to advantage.
My best regards to a lovely couple in forming their very own Franco-Scottish “Auld Alliance”.
