Natural Lighting

Sorry Melinda! Don't hate me for posting this picture!! I just loved it so much.
f/5.6 1/125th sec ISO-1250
Backstory: Melinda and I tag-teamed photographing a wedding this weekend. She had offered to do it for a friend and then called me in since both of us are a bit in-experienced so we would have more chances for some great shots. I took this one to practice with the lighting situation. No flash! That's a stretch for me. I think it would have been better if we could have turned off the light in the room also but it's an old place and there were to switches to be found.
All in all I really enjoyed the experience and I look forward to more opportunities like this one. THANKS MELINDA! (ps- to see some of the shots from the wedding go to http://gundersenphotos.blogspot.com)
CC ALWAYS WELCOME!!!
p.s. If any of you have some time I would LOVE your comments/input on my wedding stuff. I'm going to do some editing before I hand them over to the bride and I'd love your help!

I'm so glad you posted the photos from the wedding. It looks like it was a lot of fun! That is a very nice shot--she's very intent on something, but you can't see what, so there's somewhat a sense of mystery. Nice shot, and again, thanks for sharing!

It's okay, Teryn, I forgive you.

But you all should know that this is *almost* legitimate. We didn't find out the challenge word until about 1 1/2 hours after this picture was taken. But I'm sure the word was up; we just didn't call to ask my hubby until later.
(Teryn, I'm sticking my tongue out. It's the only revenge I had!)
