Ok, I'm posting these in the professional gallery not because I think they're professional but rather so I can get professional critiques. Fair enough? I have some very pointed questions, not just "how are these?" #1 This is the bride. Just a candid as she was greeting guests as they arrived. I found it's very hard to get good candids. People are constantly turning away. I have a great new respect for people who can get amazing candids at receptions. It's something I need to work on. I softened her skin so the wrinkles would be less noticeable. The background simply can't be helped since it was at a grange. #2 The cake and a boquet. I really like how this turned out. Since it was a 50th anny and not a wedding, I desaturated the photo and tried to give it an older feel. The topper is their original wedding cake topper.:heart: #3 A close-up of the topper: #4 A candid of the groom. I'm really pleased with this one. #5 Cutting the cake. #6 Last one, the kiss. How do you approach other people clicking their crappy little P&S on-camera flashes at the important moments and ruining your lighting? I was SO frustrated with this. I got so many weird shadows and this is the only one of the two them that I would even call salvageable. I'm going to do an outdoor couple session for them to get more worthy shots, but my question remains. Do you say no other cameras? Do you make them redo all the special moments? Do you make an announcement that once you're done getting shots then everyone else is welcome to take a photo? I had so much fun. I need to work a lot on my candids, lighting and just general stuff for an event like this but I want to do more. So any HHCC is welcome. If you're going to put something like "Hope this wasn't paid" don't bother. I have an internal ignore button as well as one on here. The grain also looks even worse on here. I was shooting at 800 ISO. The light was really low. Can anyone recommend a really good nise removing software?
