I like all of them but on the first one.....it's so BRIGHT!! I can't tell any detail on the dress but I do like the selective color. What is your set-up for this shoot?
I'm sure you see but on the third one of them cutting the cake, its really out of focus. I had this problem alot. On the LCD, it looks great, but on the big screen it's different.
The marriage license shot is my favorite. One thing for me is you could have softened up the flash a little bit but I still like it.
For a first wedding I think it's great. How many did you end up taking?
I took a total of 193 and kept about 120 or so. I am still working on editing them. These are my favorites, is their anything else I could do to edit them better? A lot of them have a little grain so I tried sharping, then reduce the noise, then I add a soft focus on them. It was my very first wedding, I just hope my customers like them.
Do sharpening last - reduce the noise then sharpen slightly. I try to avoid the soft focus filter. It's ok on one or two images.
I agree. I do everything else in processing color and getting rid of noise, then sharpen last, but very slightly. A little bit with the original size image, and then a little bit more after resizing for web viewing. It should make the photo pop.
Thanks so much everyone. I will re-edit the ones I have done and continue editing the ones I haven't. I really appreciate the tips, a new photographer always needs them! I am ready to learn!
Do you think I did okay pose wise? Composition wise?
For a first, GREAT JOB! I really like 4, 6, and 8 the best.
I think #6 is a stand-out. Just a bit of cropping to center the couple... maybe a slight boost of contrast in the B&G.
I don't know if it's my monitor but most of these look very blurry.
Thank you richard and pete, 4 and 6 were my personal favorites
By the way, #4, #5, #7, and #8 are my favorites! Well done for first time.
May I ask what you used for bounce/diffuser on your flash unit?
Sure, I used the Sunpak auto 383 super for the external w/ a diffuser on it and bounce the light from the corner of the temple. Its cheap but its does it job fairly well.
