Bridal Bouquet

Black and white bridal photo with bouquet colorized using Lightroom

Time for another beautiful bridal shot.  This one was taken just moments before the ceremony started in a private little courtyard just behind the park where the wedding took place.  It was sort of tough conditions – direct Southern California sun at mid-afternoon.  This helped make a nice contrasty shot that translated well into this desaturated shot.

The image processing was done with Lightroom 2’s adjustment brush.  I set it to ‘desaturate’ and started painting (with my Wacom tablet) everything that shouldn’t be colored.  It was a little putzy around the flowers, but I got the transition really clean.

Vital Stats: Canon 40D w/Canon 70-200 f/4L @ 163mm.  ISO 100, f/9, 1/250 sec (it was really bright!)
