Just want some thoughts and tips from you guys please =]
i love the picture with the glasses. very cool.
The only real problem that I see is that other than #3 and the last one (please number your pictures) is that the girl seems to be having no fun at all. She looks like she would rather be any place but there.
BTW I love the sunglasses shot. Nice!
EDIT: A little light would help... Even the flash from your camera could have given some catch lights in the eyes.
everything from the sunglasses down was great! The ones before that looked to me like "smile, I have a camera...." but the ones from the glasses down looked like real photographs.
The first ones I could see cars and stuff in the background, the water one would be cool, where they are on the tree, but something more special should be done to soften??? the background?
I am a very newbie, so I don't know the techie terms as of yet.
In #1 you could take a step back. They look "squeezed" in this picture. This one with hands making heart it's a great idea, but could be made little better. I like the idea, but not how you (they?) did it. I saw pics like that before and many were made much better. And as everyone says, the pic with sunglasses is great.
Beside that, they both look worried in those pictures => uncomfortable.
Thank you guys =]
In all honesty they where kinda a awkward couple to photography and they would not stop fidgeting. anyone photograph people like this and know how to make them more comfy?
and thanks I love the sunglass one =] They guy kept trying to wear them the whole time! and at the end I asked them if they wanted anything more personal like if they had a photo in mind and of course they said no and then I thought of using his glasses =]
and thank you all for your tips. im gonna try the one on the tree with a softer bg and see how it looks.
and sorry for not numbering!
the sunglasses one is pretty cool.
I believe talking to them before about it would help, maybe joking, etc. I dont have any experience in taking this kind of pictures, but this is what I would do. Socialize a little before, and then shot. GL on you next session.
In the film days, I shot a couple of "fake rolls" to give them time to relax. Today, with digital, just shoot, shoot, shoot while talking to them about everything and anything. Try and find out what interests them and talk about that.
Also I find that the more relax and easy going you are, the more the couple/subject is.
I really feel sorry for that guy, he actually likes being around someone that hideous. Glasses pic is best but would pretty awesome cross processed imo.
+1 sunglass shot.
That is unprofessional and uncalled for. Why don't you just stick to critiquing the pictures, not the models.
