Groom Getting Ready in Large Empty Building

This image shows the groom getting ready for the wedding ceremony through his condo windows. Condos and apartments are everywhere in the city, but I used this building and its windows to create a unique setting for an edgy picture. Left in black and white, the stark shadows and lone focus on the groom create a masculine, editorial feel.

This photo was taken with a Nikon D750 DSLR at ISO 3200, f8 aperture, 1/60th shutter speed with a Nikon Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 zoom lens, at 24mm focal length.

The lighting was a flash on a monopod, held by my assistant, camera left behind the glass wall. The flash contained the MagMod grid (MagGrid) to narrow the beam of light on the groom.
