Brooke models for me while I try out my fancy lights in a gas station parking lot before the wedding I shot yesterday. I read the manual from start to finish a week or so ago, but I was still nervous about it all. My editor, who let me borrow some of his equipment, met us at the gas station for the hand-off. When I asked the seasoned wedding photographer for some advice on portraits he just said, "Wing it."
And so, I did.
