    Hi, two weeks ago I was at the wedding of my brother in Spain and took my camera with me to get some shots. Well I only wanted to take a few, but took like 300 shots after all ;)

    I'm not even halfway through them but here are two, what do you think?

    How did you get the effect on the last picture?

    I did it in Photoshop. Here's how:

    1. Copy the background layer to a new layer
    2. Desaturate the background layer using "Image->Adjustments->Desaturate"
    3. Add a layer mask to the still colored copy of the background layer that's on top of it.
    4. Now draw over everything that should be black and white on the layer mask - which lets the background layer come through

    and there you got your selective coloring :) Hope that helped.

    Great shots...perhaps try to include the feet? I always feel that helps...

    thanks, and yes you're absolutely right. After looking through a lot of the photos this is the number two thing that I need to do better next time.

    Number one thing being: set flash exposure compensation to minus 1 or 1,5 stops and use ISO 400 :)

    Too bad I always notice these things right after everything is over and looking at my photos the first time :(

    Try getting a 50mm f/1.8 lens, thatll really help...and with that I can be on ISO 100, and my camera is still letting in too much light, so I always use that lens...

    I actually have the Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens. I even had it with me and the second photo (the one with the cigar) is made with that lens. I love it.

    The problem was, alot of my shots were candids from moderately far away at 200mm focal length because I was only guest, not the photographer there - and I didn't want to copy the pro's stuff with everyone posing but get some shots which the pro there wouldn't get :)

    Problem is, my (pretty cheap) Canon 55-200mm has got f/5.6 at 200mm and only f/4.5 at 55 mm, so that's a very slow one.

    I'd love to own a Canon 24-70 L f/2.8, but probably a Tamron 28-75 will be all I can afford, but I'm still dreaming :)
