Wedding evening [blogged by Iain]

Louise mentioned last week that we would be attending a wedding evening hosted by Spires Hairdressing in East Grinstead. We went along on Monday evening and had the opportunity to meet with a few prospective brides and other suppliers in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Karen, the owner of the Salon, was demonstrating various styles on some of the prospective brides, while the rest of us were located around the salon and adjoining office space to talk about the services we could offer. Of course, we couldn't resist the opportunity to take some shots while we were there and I have posted a couple of these below.

The next bit is for those interested in the technology... the rest of you can stop reading now.

All images were shot on the Canon 5D Mk II with 24-70mm f2.8L IS USM. The first three shots were lit by flash - 580EX II with a Gary Fong Litesphere. The remaining images were shot at ISO 3200 under existing halogen & fluorescent lights.

The Black and White conversions were done in Lightroom 2.2 using Mikey G's B&W presets, which emulate a number of different Black and White film styles. The exterior shot emulates Ilford Delta 100, the interior shot emulates Ilford SFX 200 and the head shots emulate Ilford FP4 125 and Ilford Delta 400 Pro respectively. These are great presets and definitely worth having a play around with if you use Lightroom.
