So it has been a long time since I have posted anything....
Been terribly busy, traveling a lot and generally consumed by photography and life.
I hope to have some recent work up in the next few days for critique if I get a free second.

I have for everyone today 2 graflex shots... one wedding and one not.
Critique and comments are welcome!

wedding






not wedding (random people I met while at Cannon Beach chatted them up and asked if I could do a portrait)

Love them both, my only crit is that I wish you could have got some separation between the big rock and the group in the second one.

The more I look at 1 the more I like it as well. It's one of those photos...

i have nothing to add to this post but to say that
a. alex is a rock star
b. spencer is supah
c. i could have edited the first image with more than a little snazz.
d. you should consider a little oomph. a little contrast. a little separation of church and sta... uh... bride in image 1
and e. fur is murder. those folks in image 2 should be ashamed of wearing an aussie cattle dog(?) stole.

And I think the second shot here is a stellar group portrait. The first shot she's getting lost a bit. Its more a CCOI thing than a DOF thing.

I'm pretty sure there's a VSCO preset that gives you this same look...

Seriously cool, Doug. I've never shot 4X5...but you're making me want to!

Doug, there really is something about the Graflex. I love the depth of its shots.

Was the bride looking off to camera right done on purpose?

Leave it to Doug to draw grits out of hiding! #2 is my fav, I think there's more that could be dug out of #1. Maybe I'm a traditionalist, but I'd like to see more detail in the dress.

Thanks everyone...!
Grits and Baines back to give me a hard time .... I am humbled

#1 as far as editing and separation.... I hear everyone. I could have shot it at f3.5 instead of f8 but then nothing would have been in focus and I may or may not have gotten her in focus either. So I shot it at f8 and will deal with the semi lack of separation which is not really a big deal for me.

Alex #2 I did very quickly and it does bother me that haystack rock is sort of growing out of them but like I said before shooting the Graflex is a little bit like rolling dice. I know for the most part what I will get but focusing is still tough. So focus + expression + composition + having only 1 shot = semi difficult. I am not making excuses as I agree with what you say I am just glad I have a nice shot to give to them and add to the collection. Not perfect but that's OK.

I shoot with Ilford HP5+ 400asa film. I rate it at 400 99% of the time and develop it normally with HC-110.
I have shot FP4+ but it is a 125 speed film which is often time to slow for what I need. The Ilford stuff is easy for me to get locally and cost significantly less than T-max where I buy it.

The bride was looking right because I most likely told her to. I suppose I like looking off into the distance shots...
