    Well I finally got out for a couple shoot again! Yes! Not to mention only a few more weeks of school and I am out for summer and back to photography. You don't know how happy that makes me :lol:

    Anyways, I got to shoot this couple who were married two years ago and were looking for some sweet couple shots - and I was looking to build up my portfolio. Lots of fun roaming around one of the oldest standing neighbourhoods in Calgary and discovering some of those niche pockets that alone look quite dull but with a fun couple... works quite well!

    Critique away. I really have to watch my shooting angles, so no need to critique on that as I have beaten myself to a pulp in that regard.

    Those are amazing shots! I would pay handsomely for some photos like that of my husband and I. I bet they had a blast doing those as well! Great job!

    Thanks for the comments you three :) Near they end they were great, he was a little skeptical at first but once we got going he got more into it :D. They also got my last free session, after this I am starting to charge. Who-hoo. (As I clear a mound of business papers off my desk in a rage)

    #3 is the keeper of the bunch. It's all about her and how she feels about him ... I love this shot. Nice job!

    I now prefer #'s 3, 6 and 10, after having viewed the photos on a different monitor. To this layman, the B&W ones really do stand out.

    Fret not, I'll stop polluting this great thread now. :wink:

    Ha! Maybe if I worked everyday for the rest of my life until I was 110 (as I sit here eating microwavable meals in a rented basement)


    Thanks for the comments :)
