At the recent wedding of Saara and Peter at Seasons Restaurant in Oakville, we had an interesting lighting challenge: maintaining the low light, cozy atmosphere in the restaurant but at the same time properly exposing the people’s faces.

Challenge: People too dark.

Ultimately, I set up two wireless flashes, throwing light at specific corners, along with an umbrella soft box (operated by my assistant, Igor). The soft box lit the people and the lights in the corners added an extra dimension to the room lighting and the overall exposure. Here are photographs from the final results:
