    Here are my first engagement photos for a friend of mine. Please offer C&C. THanks!

    The first ones are my favorites and the last ones are the couple's faves.

    Why Did you post this in two different areas?

    Congradulations on your first paid shoot!! I remember mine. It's an exciting/anxious moment when you put your work out there for the clients to view for the first time. So, how did your clients like your work? Any feedback from them?

    She loves them! They can't decide which is their favorite to use for their invitations, but wants to frame a lot of the candid shots.

    They are nice but I wish they would have worn something other than concert t-shirts.

    I think you did well for your first paid job, congrats. I, too, don't like the band shirts, but hey, if that's their thing.. why not?

    Some of the shots seem a little overexposed which causes you to loose detail; the ones in the shade are nicely done. Are you planning on doing any Photoshop work to them?

    Would you mind if I gave it a shot?

    These need post processing work.

    Here was my go at the first one.. the highlights are blown and it was really low res.. It might be too warm. But anyhoo..

    Nice shots man! Good work on your first gig. I agree the shots could benefit from some gentle post work.


    Parago, What did you do to the third pic? It looks like you increased saturation, added a bit of contrast, darkened background, added some bloom, some vignetting and...is that some radial motion blur as well? Or are my eyes deceiving me.

    Yikes! Good work.

    Although I think your first one is a tad overdone.
