Backlighting a subject

At this Deep Woods wedding the rain was coming down in buckets all day long. Since the wedding venue is obviously an important place to the bride and groom, I knew I had to get some shots that showed a little of the grounds, even if it was raining. Deep Woods has a covered patio area that was the perfect place to place my subjects. It was quite dark there, with no artificial lighting and a very dark day outside as well. Like I always say, however, I love using all available light so I brought out the lights I had available with me. Placing one behind the bride allowed me to light up her hair and separate her from the background a bit. Another light was setup to the bride’s right, set at a lower power and my last speedlight was on my Canon 5D3. No more dark and dreary day!
