Light Bender

I love the last light of a summer evening. At this wedding, in Bend, the smoke from a few fires in the area made for some really warm light as the sun went down. I positioned the couple across the pond from me so I could get their reflection. Wanting to make sure I exposed for all that nice light, as well as to catch some of their reflection, I underexposed about a stop or so, then used an off-camera flash (positioned on camera-right) to add just enough light to make the couple stand out. This, combined with a fast lens shot at a long distance, helped complete the image.
