"Impromptu"

As in last minute planning and wondering around for locations. Karey, John (her intern), and I set out to do an impromptu bridal photo shoot with one of my fabulous couples Corinna and Cris. The real purpose of this shoot was to practice some of the things we learned from the Anti-Workshop in Vegas. We ended up at one of my favorite places to shoot - Oldtown Pomona. As usual I had a blast exploring this area and found some new and different spots. Afterwards we ended up climbing a mountain just off the side of the freeway! Check out my favs:


Corinna and Cris are complete hams! They're fans of America's Next Top Model, so we teased them about that, and tried to get them competing against each other. And the pic below was so fun to do - the owner of the salon saw us shooting outside and invited us in to shoot inside! Awesome times.










I saw the colorful mustard fields dotting the mountains from the freeway so we looked for access - Corinna ended up climbing over a fence in her wedding dress and climbed up the hillside!

I'm loving the boosted shadows (do I see a little HDR?). And that dramatic vertical sepia shot with the sky is just about the best thing I've seen in a long time. Very well done, my friend.

Bumatay said...

Hi Ryan

no HDR use here, just some PS with a little bit of DnB on the H and Ds
