It’s been ages since I posted something on this blog. I have to apologise to those of you who have been eagerly waiting for my next post. I’ve been so busy travelling on photo assignments and these always causes all sorts of disruptions. In fact I am currently still abroad working over a dinosaur of an internet connection. So there are many challenges one faces as far as blog updates.
I managed to stay up late today (usually the time when the internet speeds up) to do this post. It’s one from a very recent Traditional wedding I documented in Lagos. The couple are of the “Ishan/Edo Tribe” of Nigeria and therefore had a traditional wedding that was truly a representative of their heritage. It is very typical to find a lot of colour in their ceremonies and this for me was the main attraction to this job.
I also got the opportunity to try out some different approaches using my newly acquired Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 L. I have been using this lens a lot but haven’t yet mastered its use, especially at very wide apertures. In fact for this event I hardly dropped the f-stop below f/2.0. Over the coming weeks I will develop and adopt a new shooting style with it.
Special thanks to Jeffery Olalekan for assisting me on this job.
Equipment : Two EOS Canon 5D Mark II, Canon EF 35mm f/1.4, Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L and Sigma EX DG HSM 50mm f/1.4
