    I did a session for this couple yesterday - They'll be celebrating their 40th in June and wanted pictures to give to family and friends. I normally photograph children, so this was really a bit of a first for me... cc appreciated.

    They are so cute together! I think you did a great job. The vignetting is a bit heavy, but other than that, I love them, and I am sure they do (or will) too.

    Great job, but the dodging in the first one lacks contrast in relation to the others and breaks the consistency.

    Thank you Lyncca! I knew someone was going to comment on the vignetting... lol! I used the omni light in ps which gave it that look... more than the vignetting that it creates, I like the glow that it gives the face. I think it works for these...

    Thanks for commenting!

    Nice photos. I don't think the vignetting works on the second one. I really like the third. Good job.

    First off, thank you!

    Second - I'm glad you mentioned this, because I'm having a hard time with this one. This pose (area/angle on the porch) is the only set that is different from the other 200+ pictures that I took... the sun was coming up over the back of the house and from where I was shooting, the light created a fog over them. I tried to get rid of it in ps, but couldn't.

    I scratched all the other pictures from this set, but really liked their expressions in this one.

    Long story short, there is no dodging involved in this shot, just a lot of foggy light. Any suggestions?

    It is a bit dark, but I was trying to soften/ darken the large dead brick space... The front door was there, which I cloned out and then darkened...

    Just a matter of opinion... thanks for commenting.
