Tim, Sarah and the Phonebooth

After the tree shots and on the way to the reception the bridal couple wanted a shot with this phonebooth.

Travelling to the location, I noticed that the sun had well and truly set, but that it was prime blue hour time. A very quick setup (two flashes, ettl wireless mode, one on camera, one camera right), and a long exposure (6 seconds), netted us this shot.

    You guys really covered the countryside for this shoot, didn't you David !
    Nice shot, as Debbie mentioned you really did capture the blue hour
  • David de Groot said:
    Sure did ;-) I'm impressed that the booth has power actually.
    Indeed Helen - even has a Royal crest above the door.
    Sure did Kath. But I think it was worth it - the locations were all good. :)

    Nice one Dave.
    Mel, the bride and groom found the phone box, I don't think I could find it again!

    lol @ Debbie & Dave re the position of the phone box
  • Tristen Murray said:
    Really nice colours. The red against the blue. Also great lighting.
  • David de Groot said:
    Hehehe, yeah would have been better if it were a blue police box in that case ;-)
    Choice bro :P
    I still had enough wits about me at the end to remember to set a waypoint on the GPS ;-)
    Thanks - Although, with a bit more time, I'd have set up a brolly and lit the couple a bit better, but we were really working against the clock.

    Thanks Scott. Always good to get something different.
    Thanks Milli. Props to the couple for standing still for a whole 6 seconds, too.
    I sure hope they think so Thea :)

  • 6element said:
    Excellent shot, love the lighting!
    Your out in the country phone booths are like British out in the country booths....full of sh*t.
  • David de Groot said:
    hehehe yeah although this one is obviously someone's private collector piece. There's no phone, just a light and some grass.
