With bold colors, inventive lighting, creative postproduction, and eye-catching poses, Neal Urban creates engagement portraits that go far beyond the expected. In this book, he takes you behind the scenes with dozens of couples to show you how each image was conceptualized, customized, and brought to life. Under Neal's careful eye, a patch of tall grass in a parking-lot becomes an exotic setting for two, the couple's favorite dive-bar is transformed into a backdrop for timeless romance, and city streets become cinematic wonders. Shooting in the late-afternoon, sunset, and evening hours, Urban works carefully with the natural light, ambient sources in the scene, off-camera flash, LED, and tungsten sources to beautifully sculpt the couple and bring his scenes to life. Spend a few hours perusing this book and you'll never approach engagement photography the same way again!
