photoblog image Sidney


Meet Sidney the little brides maid from Clarissa and Matt's wedding. There is just something so pure about this shot that I can't really explain.

I like the combination of polished presentation and straightforward composition. It suits this girl perfectly.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Martin.
What beautiful eyes - they really reach out and connect with the viewer.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Red Pen.

Her white dress and bow against the dark background make this feel so...pristine, Dotun! Her face is angelic.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Ginnie.

I love this shot to bits...but there is something about how you have processed the eys..its too sharp to the point it looks unnatural...Jide does that also sometimes..

but the generel feel to this shot is fantastic..

what lens did you use?
Dotun Ayodeji: thanks Yeni, I will tone the sharpness down before it goes on my upcoming website. I uses a 50mm shot at 2.5.

Love the shot and processing.
I like the catch light in her eyes as well as seeing you reflected back. Her smile and pose are to die for and the only bad thing was well out of your control, your shadow.

Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Johnny, I don't think that takes away from the shot plus once you are this high up looking for this angle, you really have little or no options to prevent the shadows.
Beautiful ! Really beautiful !! I wish you a great Week End !
Dotun Ayodeji: You do the same, thanks Zebigleb.

Excellent shot of Sidney. I think it can be the whites that make people at weddings appear as 'pure'.
