The Wedding Singer

It's been very quiet on the photo blog recently. I wonder what has happened to all the commentators. Not that I have a problem with it.

This shot was taken on my last international assignment. I was documenting a wedding for a the daughter of one of the great traditional rulers in Nigeria.

My very good mate Andrew Esiebo, assisted me on this assignment. The moment things started to wind down a bit we started to experiment with various exposures since the sun was setting. I saw this moment and played around with the camera exposure bias. This shot was taken with an exposure bias of -3.0eV. This is the reason why it is very dark.
