From My Portfolio

"Daughter Love You!", originally uploaded by Sheba Wheeler.

I love this simple yet elegant shot. While wondering around capturing images during Kim and Michael's engagement party, I stopped by the guest book hoping to get a good detail shot.

While scanning through the signatures, I discovered this message “Daughter Love You!” left by either the future bride’s mother or father. To focus on it, I used a wide aperture and blurred out the rest of the signatures. Then I did some more selective focusing and blurring in Photoshop to bring out the message even more.

The black and white treatment makes this an instant classic that I hope the bride and groom will treasure forever. Don’t forget the importance of the detail shot in your overall plan for photographing an event. It’s the little things that matter!
