Ever wonder how to get that soft dreamy look in your pictures? Photographer Melissa Young captured this image using a lens that I recently purchased myself. It’s the 50 mm f1.2 (check out the link below to read about it). She tells us that the “Photo was taken early morning with natural light on a slightly overcast day. I always want to try and find a creative way to involve the engagement ring without just focusing on a photo of their hands. I like my images to display intimacy and emotion. Shot on a canon 5d marc ll with a 50 mm 1.2″
I like how she included both faces and a hand in the image. It’s easy to forget about hands but Melissa brings them all together very nicely. Check out more of her fine work at her site here.
