The Reservoir Dogs

Powered By SmugWP

My sister is still chapped about this picture.  It was taken as my soon-to-be-brother-in-law was walking down to see his bride-to-be for the first time.   I was assigned to shoot preparation pictures of Dano as he dressed for the wedding.  I had always envisioned this Reservoir Dogs style shot where the dressed-to-kill groomsmen were lined up and walking down like they owned the place.

To get the picture, I had to lay down on the floor and fire away with a big aperture at a high ISO.  The original looks gritty to say the least – not very sharp due to motion and pretty grainy due to high ISO.  It’s exactly the look I wanted.  I think my sister would have rather had him not be five minutes late.

Vital Stats:  Canon 40D w/Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 @ 32mm.  ISO 1600, f/2.8, 1/160 sec.
