Opposites Attract

Opposites Attract, originally uploaded by margotwood.

Another engagement photo for my friends Allison & Justin. I took this when she didn't really know I was taking a photo. I told her I was readjusting the lens but in reality, I was snapping pics! Ha! There is something ethereal about this photo that I enjoy, also the awkward composition. Thoughts??


  1. I LOVE this! And your title is so apt. It's like angel and... well, not demon, but maybe angel and human here. With the opposite coats, and the face vs. back... I agree there's something about your friend that looks ethereal, especially with the background blurred just so. Really a lovely shot.

  2. this is fantastic, I love the shots you are able to capture! what kind of camera are you using?

  3. Thank you! I use a Nikon D40 and borrowed my mothers Nikkor 55-200mm zoom lens. For this shot, I left it on "P" and turned down the exposure a bit (usually around-1.3) because snowy shots always tend to be over exposed.

    Next I did a fair amount of post processing in Photoshop - I did a light cross processing and a little vignetting. Thanks for checking out my blog! It's much appreciated!
