p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Koi Fish Pond |E-session|


Hey!
I had a quick half hour with this couple at a Koi fish pond/garden. With a security guard following us waiting to close it down We managed to get the shots I wanted! Posting this before bed, early morning wedding! Hope everyone has an awesome weekend shooting.

If you'd like to, absolutely. I always like to hear what others see and learn things from it

This only thing i have is that i'm not crazy about the mixed shade/dappled sun on her face in number 1, (to a lesser extent on the top of his head on 7), and then the squinty eyes from her on 6....i'm sure a lot of it was tough b/c your were shooting at what looks like mid day, with prob not a lot of shade, and like you said you only had 30 min....you definitely did well considering the circumstances, but i think i would have tossed those images, or just tried moving the couple slightly to get that sun to land elsewhere...just my thoughts...

While the concept of the shots are good the bright sun takes away from the image. Backgrounds are way too bright as a start. Harsh sun on the subject in most photos shown. Try finding shade or even out the sun with flash.

#5's composition really works.

#6- great example of what Jeffery was talking about. The background is so bright that the viewer's attention isn't on the couple.

Hey man, I think these are good. I'm not a huge fan on the processing and I think you'll find over time that this was a phase you went through in the learning process. I know I've been through many.

I like that you used the sun a bunch in these. So many people are quick to run in to the shade instead of learning how to use that harshness. That is probably the biggest thing I am trying to do. Having said that though just be aware of the backgrounds when doing so. When a subject is backlit by harsh sun you can expect a gorgeous blue sky to be blown out whereas when shooting them lit entirely by the sun you show that blue sky. The same goes for backgrounds, that difference in lighting. I just wanted to say that because I think you using the sun is fantastic so don't run in to the shade because other people say you should.

I think with some adjustments to your editing the photos would pop with the way you shot them in the sun.
