This handsome groomsmen portrait was take at Willows Lodge in Woodinville, WA. While all the guys were doing what they are doing the best- hanging out instead of stressing out like the girls, I asked them "hey guys, let's do something cool real quick." Without any hesitation they immediately started to cooperate. I had the guys move the furniture around to place all the seats towards me. I also slightly posed them in the most comfortable ways. If you're a photographer, you may wonder how I created such an evenly lit directional light on all the guys in this indoor with almost no light source. I actually put a on camera flash and had it point 45 degrees back to the wall. Hence the light bounced it off the wall and created a much light source to wrap around the groomsmen. And since we are in a room full of incandescent lights, the color temperature of the room turned out to be extremely warm. However, it was an easy fix in Lightroom for a one click of white balance then we are done! The only thing I wish was they could've left at least a few beers for the decoration on the table counter, but too bad they just kept on drinking and had nothing left by the time I directed the photograph!
