Wedding Petra & Milan

Sneak peek Posted on Wed, September 15, 2010 14:52:34

Recently I had a pleasure to photograph (as a second shooter) a wedding of my little cousin in Kosice, Slovakia.

Working in tandem with the photographer Marek Mačák gave me the comfort shooting things I wanted or spotted during the ceremony concentrating on little details otherwise overlooked when getting the must-have-shots.

Lovely bride and funny groom made a beautifull couple great to work with and the natural wood around the venue made a perfect backdrop for the photoshoot. We got beautiful shots of both of them separately and together. I just regret that the timetable of the day did not permit us to continue shooting and getting even more beautiful photographs.

As always I had my beloved Pentax MZ-S with whole array of lenses – Limiteds, Rotator, Lensbaby, Cosina, 200mm*, my friend 540FGZ flash and reflector, I took also Diana F with instant back which I ended up not using though.. maybe next time :).. Took whole bunch of films – my favorite Portra NC 160, 400 and 800, FujiPRO400H and Lomography RedscaleXR 50-200. All beautifull.

For more photographs check out my FACEBOOK PAGE album WEDDING Petra & Milan. For the moment there are only 8 pics but many more to come. Stay tuned 🙂

Just a quick sneak peek on the photographs from my last photosession with this gorgeous little 2-years old girl Nicole. The whole shoot took place in my garden one hot summer afternoon and it was a real pleasure to create these images.

And some techincal data: camera Pentax MZ-S with Pentax SMC FA 77/1,8 Limited and Pentax FA*200/2,8 IF&ED lenses, Kodak Portra 160NC, 400NC and 800 colour film

Recently I had an occasion to photograph a friend’s wedding and here are some pictures from the shoot.

And some technical details – I was using Pentax MZ-S camera with combinations of Pentax SMC FA 77/1,8 Limited, Pentax SMC FA 43/1,9 Limited and SMC FA 31/1,8 Limited lenses, plus for some special effect I used Lensbaby 2,0 and Hartblei Super Rotator 80/2,8. The entire wedding was shot on Kodak Portra 800 35mm film. The instant photograph was taken with Diana F+ camera with Instant Back loaded with Fuji Instax Mini instant film.
