mae day

man, i almost screwed these up.

tried shooting the wedding of a good friend with the camera set to overexpose by a stop and a half. knew there'd be a lot of whites around so i was hoping to get a graphic, almost 2-dimensional high-key effect.

thing is, by pushing the exposure so much, it's easy to clip the highlights and lose image data. so i did end up having to do a fair amount of post in order to rescue some detail and reign in the contrast. mayo says she likes it, so all told, i guess the risky move worked.

whew.
