    these are straight out of camera, I only have my netbook with me at this time, but wanted to get quick opinions on lighting and such.

    I was NOT the PAID wedding photographer, the bride is my mom, and she did not hire a photographer, many friends just took a bunch of casual pictures. I TOOK ALL OF THESE PICTURES!

    1 - I dislike the plastic beer cup & children's pail being in the shot. The foliage coming from nowhere on the left side of the frame is bothersome in my opinion as well.

    2 - Extremely slanted horizon. Boo!

    3 - This is my favorite photo but I dislike your mom's arm being cut off. I'd like to see her whole arm. Not to mention the subjects are a little off center of the frame. The vegitation growing out of your head is a little unsettling.

    4 - This is another nice photo but it's cropped a little tight. The lady's hand is cut a tad short in my opinion. Also, the youngest lad seems to be a little sand covered...

    Over all I think they are nice photos for just a group of random people snapping here and there. Cheers!

    Just my $0.02. Take it with a grain of salt - I am a nobody.

    Yes, I am going to get the cup out, but the pail doesnt bother me, all the kids got sand buckets and bubbles....

    I am going to fix the horizon too.


    The full pic, her arm is not cut off, i just did a quick crop there. The vegitation is the arch thingy covered with bamboo.

    sand covered kid at a beach wedding...lol go figure!

    #4 looks like the kids have sunburns or something... But I like the photo other than that.

    yes I think you should recalibrate because they do not look the slightest bit sun burnt at all.

    why arent they all looking at the camera. Another photographer ruined your photos OR you ruined someone else's photography :).

    There was no photographer.

    So when people started taking pictures, other people sort of just jumped in and started snapping too.

    All of these photos I arranged and then some @#^% off came up with their cell phone or other point and shoot and started talking saying look over here.... arghhhhh!

    But that is what my mom wanted, more candid shots, not anything arranged, it was very casual, I mean this is her 3rd marriage so.....

    Casual photos or not, it's not proper to post photos that aren't yours. :thumbdown:

    Edit: ababysean has cleared up the confusion over the, "I was NOT the photographer," line she originally posted.

    She took the photos she posted, and so there has been no harm and no foul.

    oh because I said I was NOT the photog? I meant I was not the hired photog, because I know I would be slammed up against the wall if I posted these pictures and people thought I was "The Wedding Photographer" of the day.

    There was no hired photog. My mom did not want posey picutres, I was her only matron of honor, it was very casual.

    I'm sorry if it read as if I was posting other pictures that other people took, I will say again

    I TOOK ALL OF THE PICTURES I POSTED ABOVE.
