A quick candid from yesterdays Wedding shoot……….

Started to edit photos from my first wedding shoot for Bethan & Ian.

I really liked this candid snap taken during the hair and makeup leg of what was a very long day, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Try in the corner………….

A shot from tonight’s match. We don’t have floodlights up here in Pontycymer so this was shot at 5000 iso at f2.8 on a Nikon D7000.

With a little bit of noise reduction it holds up pretty well.

Breaking the tackle……..

Breaking the tackle

Taken at Saturday’s game a very bright sunny day here in the South Wales valleys

which made taking action shots a breeze in this very one sided game where Pontycymer beat local rivals Blaengarw 131 – 13.
