WEDDING 365 PROJECT – 365 days (strictly speaking of course 366 this year) 365 reportage wedding photographs.
SHOOTING DATA: 5DMk2, 24mm, F1.6, 1/600, ISO 125, underexposed by two thirds
VENUE: Highclere Castle, Newbury
ETHOS: Despite being reasonably close to me, I’ve only photographed at Highclere Castle a handful of times. Of course now this historic building has further televisual resonance, in that it is AKA Downton Abbey. I did record a number of ‘straight’ facade shots for the bride and groom, but this photograph complete with guests completes the storytelling landscape. Bride and groom have departed and guests are making their way to the car park. I shoot quite wide open and the sun is up and at me, but apart from having to ride the shutter speed slightly, it’s returned minus any requirement for supplementary lighting.
