Wedding Day - Tuesday unretouched

My friends got married today (Tuesday, January 8th) at City Hall in a civil marriage ceremony.

There's different degrees of difficulty with photography. As a nature photographer, it already gets challenging for me to take pictures of people. The next degree of difficulty is taking picture of people indoors. Then, there's the ultimate in difficulty: taking pictures of people indoors on a special occasion.... oh boy...

That's one of the reasons I chose to do the 365 challenge this year to force myself to practice and expand beyond my comfort zone.

...please don't worry, my friends had a professional photographer to capture their day.... :-)

Someday I'll also be good enough in Photoshop to remove this guy's leg and foot in the photo below

Location: Standesamt, Heidelberg, Germany

Camera Settings (above): ISO 6400, F5,6 SS 1/25

I am not sure what you were worried about because I think you have done a very nice job or taking their picture on their special day.  Glad you are doing the 365, looking forward to seeing more of your photos. smile

Thank you, I felt I was able to capture each person's emotions- the giddiness of the bride, the seriousness of the groom and the tenseness of the best man (who's got the tattooed hands sitting behind the groom)
