I really miss doing shots with concepts like these. This one is almost a year old and from one of the first weddings I did last year. A typical bridal preparation image.

This is a great shot. Despite being a silhouette I still knew exactly what was happening. You've controlled the highlights extremely well too. Top stuff, Jide.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Jon. I'm glad you can see my efforts in this one. I sis struggle to catch this moment at the time.
Its an interesting shot.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Ngozi, can you please elaborate on what you find interesting about it?
