Polaroid 420 at a Wedding

While spending the near sub-zero days going through my 2011 backlog of images, I stumbled across these little gems from a wedding late last fall.

 

These images just go to show that if the couple you're photographing have a little faith in you, you can make some pretty amazing images happen, even with a plastic fantastic Polaroid 420!

 

Now when taking portraits close up and with a lot of light coming in, it's crucial to compensate with more exposure than you think you're going to need. Anywhere from 1-3 stops over, depending on the strength of your backlight and subject in the foreground.
