That's the song she's walking in to. I wish more couples would just have fun like this, and fill their special day with love, laughter, and just don't stress over stupid stuff. The groom is a friend, the wedding is totally low budget, and this is my one free wedding of the year.
The timeline was also challenging as they got married when it's dark and didn't want to see each other before, so we did the 'no-look-first-look' thingy, and probably only had 10 minutes for bride and groom shots.
They wanted to do something with superhero shirts (not sure if they saw Tony's image somewhere or not) and this is the one shot I failed in execution. I set up 4 speedlights to backlit and was going to use the Einstein as a fill. My VML accidentally got switched on in the storage bag and died right as I took the shot, so I had to take one of the speedlights and use that as fill instead. Weather was also an issue as it was so cold and the ladies just wanted to get back inside, but in hindsight I should have kept trying until I get the shot I wanted.
The long exposure shot - I should have backlit the couple first to better highlight them.
More on the blog. C+C welcomed as always. Hope everyone is having a great holiday season!
For me, I see flashes of brilliance with some disappointment sprinkled in.
For me the dark tones are far too heavy in a lot of these. It makes the photos look dreary. In general, the moments and composition are good on nearly all of these, though the processing could stand to be polished a bit. The problem photos here seem to be in the first half of the set.
I also would have left #21 out. That picture has been done thousands of times, only this time it kind of fell flat for you. I would have omitted this one and tried the shot again next time. #16 could be axed as well.
With all of that out of the way, 13, 14, 19 and 20 are very strong. Color, lighting, editing, are all spot on here. Very well done.
Farid - seriously dope set my man. You're one of my fav posters on here. Just love your stuff.
One very small critique is the slight tilt on many shots. On some it works really well but on others I don't think it helps the shot in any way.
I LOVE 3, 6, 11, 19, and 20 is the BOMB!
Awesome as always my friend.
