    My parents suggested that I do a session with my sister and her boyfriend so I brought my gear with them to a spot in Southern California and snapped a couple off. Only thing I regret is getting some fill light in there...should have brought a flash.

    I tried some various styles on the post process.

    I like the images, nice poses, good smiles, a few minor expsoure issues, but not fond of the treatments. I think these would be more effective in either colour or straight B&W (3,4 are rather over contrasty for my taste).

    They definitely seem a little dark to me - you are correct that some fill flash, or at least a reflector would have helped.

    I love the last one though! I like the texture too - great pose, expression from her - beautiful!

    Thanks for the comments! I think the darkness issue is coming from my new laptop screen because when I viewed the photos again on my other lcd screen they did seem dark so I need to calibrate or just learn to adjust for my laptop screen.

    I like my B&W to be high contrast just my thing...:) but the faces on #4 do seem too dark now that I look at them on the other screen.

    Keep the comments coming haha.

    I love #5, how did you get the texture like that?

    The texture is a mix of a fabric brush and a grunge brush. I also did some post processing to get the colors more old skool looking and I then did some light erasing around focus points on the subjects.

    It looks straight out of a magazine ad.

    Great work.

    I personally feel the treatment to the pictures is too much. I imagine the couple would like some fresh, clean looks on some of these... Their faces are much underexposed in most of these unfortunetly.

    What a handsome couple! #4.

    I'm not sure what you've done, or why, to #2 or #5.

    Pretty much what others have said repeated here. :)
    A little dark which you knew. I love the poses, great job there.
    I like the last one. They are a great looking couple and definitely great material if you are wanting to do some practice shoots and need beautiful models. :)
    I'd love to see you reshoot them with adequate flash. I am sure it would be amazing. :)
