    I've been doing photography for 2 months now. I'd love some constructive critism on some engagement pics I took last weekend.

    1) I like the Idea, could have been a bit stronger with one of them looking at the camera or both looking at each other.

    2) Looks like you missed the focus on this one, nice idea, but the focus looks like it is a foot or 2 in front of them. ( I would love to see you try this again)

    3) Very Nice!

    Yup, number 3 on the first post is very well done. You might try dodging the couple just a little to brighten them up.

    late 20s. we you thinking too young to be engaged? looks can be deceiving.

    we stopped in the library for an outfit change. The book stacks seemed appropriate since they are both grad students. I'm going to go back alone & work on my phtogoraphy in the lighting there. it can be a really cool spot for pictures if I can get it right.

    #3 in the first post is the best! Well done on that one, you have a lot of potential ;) #1 is nice but I like the other shot from that location (the black and white one you posted)

    I took a bunch in that window. I'll go back & see if one is better than #1. I really liked that one, but it doesn't seem to appeal to others like it did me. i'll see if there is one with more chemistry between them.
