Some technical info!

Thank you for all the lovely comments about the photograph of the bride in the doorway - it was lovely in colour but when Rachel emailed me through a suggestion to do it in black and white with the background like that, it really was even more striking.

A few friends have asked for technical info - I took the photo in Manual mode and metered for the bride not the background for the exposure. I used photoshop and played with levels and curves to get her exposed well then I used the dodge tool to clean up the background and whiten it up. Lastly I converted into black and white.

Thanks again for all the encouraging comments - I love to read them all.
