please dont be offended by my comments. I look for honest opinions from my posts because there are some seriously talented people here and I learn so much from both their comments and from studing their work. My comments are my opinion and given with the best intentions to help you see what others may see in your images. My comments are not to hurt your feelings or insult you and I sincerely apologize if that has happened.
with pic #1, it looks to me at least, too dark. I want my subject to be the center of attention in the photo. If the other photographer isnt the subject matter in that shot, then the pic should have been taken with out him in the frame.
my opinion doest matter. it is the bride and groom who pay for your work and they are the ones who must be happy. Was this your first wedding? It is a learning experience and you will improve dramatically with the more weddings that you do. I was very nervous on my first and looking back at that wedding and comparing it to my more recent ones, I can see a big difference in my composition, lighting, posing and ability to capture the emotion and tell their story.
there is no motive behind my comments. I do not compete with this person in any way. They were just my honest opinion. Honestly, would you have been happy to present these images to your clients?
