Just getting all my photos back on my computer after the crash, but figured I would post a few from 2012. I'll get more up when I get my computer where I want it to be. As always, C&C welcome.

Here are some of my favorites from 2012...

***Got my computer back up so went ahead and combined this post with my others and added the photos.

Oh, it's a good thing... for you lol.

I have to ask 2 very newbish questions. What camera equipment did you use to shoot this wedding, and more specifically
how did you light number 9 and 14? Was that shot on site at the wedding?

Well, for camera equipment it varies depending on the shot. Detail shots are usually a Sigma 150 2.8 Macro on a tripod. Closeups are generally a Sigma 120-300 2.8. Pull back or wide angle is generally a Nikon 16-35 2.8. General stuff might be a 50mm prime or a Nikon 35-70 2.8. Camera body was a D700 for I think all of these. Flash is generally an SB910 on the hotshoe, but occasionally I will pull out light stands and studio flash.

As far as 9 and 14, they were shot at the recepetion. Normally try to grab the rings for a few minutes while the couple is eating. For the setup/lighting, it's a mixture of natural light and flash to add some kick. SB910 on the hot shoe bounced off a wall or a ceiling depending on how I wanted the light to fall. Long exposure, normally around 8 seconds or so. F/22 or somewhere around there with Base ISO. Tripod. Manual focus using live view and zooming in to focus. Then switch over to time delay/mirror lock up and push the button.

Hope that helps.

Out of curiosity, does anybody have any feedback not related to fake eyelashes?

I think they came out amazing but I do have some minor detail nitpicks.

Number 8: I wish the flowers were in focus here.
Number 11: I'm not a fan of the tilt.
Number 14: Right next to the diamond, it looks like a small reflection of maybe a ceiling light is in the band. I would personally clone that out.


That cake shot is ridiculously good. Did you dodge the cake at all?
The close up kissing shots are captivating. These brides must have fallen over themselves after seeing them.

4 and 5 are probably my favorite of the set and the ring shots are unbelievable.

These are a lot better than your 2011. The ring shots are good. I do think you tend to shoot everthing too tight. The most people you involve in one shot is 3 (last one). The rest are either 2 or 1. Wedding photography should be more about story telling.

Join date Feb 2013. Long time no see? I wonder who you are :)

I was wondering the same thing... Plus, Linda seems to be posting a lot in the last few minutes. I'm guessing a 'For Sale' Post is coming up in another few posts.

Edited to add: Well, that was quick. Linda is already gone.

At first, I didn't agree with you because I was more going for the lights in the background, but as I look at it, I do think it would have been better if I would have had the roses in focus. Either way, definitely could have been better.
Number 11: I'm not a fan of the tilt.
I agree. Probably should have fixed that.
Number 14: Right next to the diamond, it looks like a small reflection of maybe a ceiling light is in the band. I would personally clone that out.
Yep, should have fixed that, too.

No. Just processed in Adobe Camera RAW...didn't really do a lot of editing on any of these. Didn't even take any of them into Photoshop. Just a quick process and a resize.

Thanks for the feedback.
