B/W wedding moments #7

The last in the series.... I hope you've enjoyed them.

Tomorrow is the beginning of the my last series in preparation for the exhibition. After that I don't think I'll be blogging for a while yet.

"Words are not enough" - Art Exhibition
Get your tickets now!!!
Tickets on sale here

My very good friend BolanleDinah has been working very hard on an Art exhibition for charity. She approached me to contribute some of my works for auction along with some other artists. The title of the exhibition is "Words are not enough" and you can see more details of it here. I strongly urge you all to come as you'll not only get a chance to see good work in 3D but also a chance to give to charity. Tickets are on sale on the website through the "buy now" link at the top.

Very good tones (nice gradation from black to white)here. Waiting for your tutorials. Hold on 456mm!!? which lens were you using then? I go break bank o!
Jide Alakija: You really want the tutorials? If I can get enough people interested then I'll put something together. The feeling I got was that not many people were interested in this aspect of photography. It all depends on numbers.

Re:focal length, the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 has an annoying nack of registering 456mm when you extend the focal length to 200mm. I've corrected the EXIF now. Thanks for spotting it.

If you're in London you might be interested in a shooting outing I'm thinking of organising sometime. I want to do some documentation of the pigeons in Trafalgar square. I started with this shot http://alakija.shutterchance.com/photoblog/48124.htm sometime back. I want to get more to complete the document. Let me know if you're interested.
Another very nice high contrast shot!
like the framing here a lot...
little lost bride.....Where is my groom..
I WANT this pictureeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Awesome. I liked the way she is walking out of the frame indicating the end of the series. Lovely
Count me in if you are planning on any tutorial.
