    I attempted to take our own engagement pictures. I found it very difficult and I felt unable to take decent pictures! My camera was mounted on my tripod and that kept me from being creative with camera angles. We are going to try the shoot again in a couple weeks. Hopefully now that I have this first experience the next time will be better.

    Please C&C!

    Depending on what tripod you have why are you limited to no creative camera angles?

    I think this endeavor turned out very nicely. To me the focuse looks spot on. A little shadowing in number 2 along the young woman's nose (left side) But all in all these turn out great for being "un-manned" camera shots.

    Also at least since you are doing them your self it should be fairly easy for schedule a re-shoot should you want one.

    Again nice work, #2 is my favorite.

    Also ~ Congratulations as well.

    Thank you. With the camera mounted on the tripod I wasn't able to easily move around changing camera angles. Also Erin had to stand still in the camera frame while I adjusted exposure settings. Then I would jump into the frame and remotely fire the shutter.

    #1 needs to be centered. The lighting is too powerfull I think. Your shirt is blown a little.
    #2 Heads got cut off. Look at your hand around her. Dont you think it looks weird?
    3&4 nice... I think because you are holding the camera LOL

    You dont have a photographer friend to help? Even just a friend, the should be able to take good photos if you set the setting and tell them how to focus.
