‘That First Dance…’

Fujifilm X-E2, XF35mm f/1.4 @f/2, 1/160th sec, ISO-1600 & side-mounted  EF-X20 flash set on 1/64th power and set to ‘manual’ control rather then TTL.

Again as has been previously the case during wedding shoots, I have relied greatly upon flash photography for capturing those reception shots where, regardless of ‘time-of-year’, the light is inevitably minimal and some artificial lighting is required.  The Fujifilm EF-X20 is a tiny flash unit but perfectly formed and appears to deliver excellent results time and again, particularly when married with the 35mm f/1.4 lens, as is the case with this image of the bride and groom taking the floor for the first dance of the night.  Tones are excellent and there is a nice throw of light on the couple despite being far from ‘in-their-faces’ at the time, indeed there was still some room for crop even at 35mm.

I have found that, as a rule, I prefer to use the flash on it’s manual setting; there would appear to be more control over the amount of power although that might be just me…
