p.1 #1 · A.S. #9 - keeping it short - critique req


A.S. = aspiring second, after wedding #9 it is a bit silly, but it makes looking up my old stuff easy.

As usual, looking for harsh critique. I let myself down at this wedding, so I am following big chuck's advice and keeping this short. Hope that makes it possible to critique.

Hard to see with the few images here, though I think these are just fine.

How do you think you let yourself down?

Maybe it was a harder wedding due to old tricks not working the same as with other couples...

#2 = jowels and double chin. Find an angle for such a face where the chin and cheek points don't make themselves so abruptly different on her...could've meant shooting less head-on or some other angle, or hiding more/less of her face. Could also mean reducing the degree of shadow on the left edge of the chin...

His double chin would improve with slight neck extension followed by the forehead tilt downward.

Plus the vignette darkens his forehead and hair, not good IMO...

My ideas are all recycled, none of them are original.

Green of #1 makes her larger arms more noticable; gives an almost 'molding' or 'gone bad' look. Very ugly.

#2 bad angle selection for the woman. Get higher on the subject, shoot this from above, same pose to help on this shot.

#3 is nice, I'd pull your saturation back a bit or not use a different VSCO looking filter for all of these instead of the one you're running now. BW would be a lot better.

Yay, harsh critique

I had trouble with canon's flash system and other technical things, got pissed and switched to manual flash, then sold all of my canon gear. (back to being 100% nikon).

The getting ready area was VERY difficult to shoot in. Small, cluttered room with weird lighting.

You may be right, I struggled to think of flattering angles. The shadows on her forehead and hair are more from his shadow than from the vignette. I already have a gradient running across her face to balance it out a bit. Thanks for the tips for the necks/chins.

#1, most of the shots I have of her hugging people ended up looking somewhat like that. Is there a better angle or crop?

#2, I am 5'11" and that was shot from my normal eye level. How do you get higher, I could have pulled a chair over, but wouldn't the couple get self conscious or be weirded out by that?

3#, I pushed saturation harder than I should in all three. Agreed, still floundering in an effor to find PP that fits me.
I already had a B&W version and almost posted it earlier. Here it is.

Softened up the colors on the images, they were a bit.... umm... overboard
