p.1 #1 · mountain wedding in Banff


A few shots from a recent wedding in Banff Canada. I'm not sure how much I love the tilt shift lens but every so often I like the effects. The whole session is on the blog as well.

#4 has my vote for image of the week.

Man, the gorgeous mountains in your images... the thought of being able to trail-run up them makes me want to move up there even if it means working a minimum-wage job.

I agree about 4. 99% of the time I don't like tilt-shift, but you made it work here! 1 is nice too, but more typical of what I see being done. 3 I just don't like, because they look so stiff and unnatural.

That's because they're likely a bunch of flat-landers who came up from 85F-land who are now freezing in 55F temps.

Sorry about not being able to convert F to Celsius... the rest of the metric system makes a lot more sense for weights, volume, distance, but for human temperatures, Celsius doesn't seem as applicable.

Please step away from the VSCO....

I really like the photography, but I grieve for the loss of what had to be wonderful blues, greens and other colors of nature.

The last photo is a lot of fun.

I've been floating back and forth with it. I make my own actions (not vsco) but yes they have muted shadows and tones emulating a softer film look. On the contrast I'm not a big fan of over sharpened and over coloured images so I'm trying to find a happy middle ground.

Gotcha! Good on you for looking for your look. I understand what you are trying to avoid. Being an old film guy I find a lot of digital work oversaturated over sharpened. Heck, I never shot a roll of Velvia because I thought the look was overcooked!

The color photo of them with the mountains in the background is fine. I especially like the skin tones. I might have snapped the background a little, but that's personal preference.

I spent years printing B&W and I'm not a big fan of the muddy blacks that seem to be in fashion. I worked hard to avoid them and I think my clients would have been disappointed if I presented prints that didn't have nice blacks.

Looking beyond the PP, I really like the photos. I find the wedding party photo with the tree in the middle to be fun and playful!

I like the processing on three. Nice subtle film look not overlydone. The other ones are obviously strong but I don't find them distasteful I find them nice. I personally love TS and it almost works great in 3 but I think theres too much blur up into their face. Still looks good but I think thats the only thing from making it perfect. I've never used a TS so I'm curious how hard/easy to see where your blur will be?

Great shots Carey, number 2 is probably my favorite and 4 is awesome too. Im trying to figure out the focus plane on 4, is the blur done in post or did you free-lens that shot? Just curious.

I have to say as well, 4 is awesome. From a client pov they probably loved it. From a photographer pov, my eye went right to the groom's head where over-manipulation of the image is apparent. And agree with the rest, 3 is uncomfortable. I'm personally over the washboard poses.

This was with the 45 mm ts from Nikon. I have three lenses torn apart to free-lens and although I had fun with it, it was so hit or miss and delicate for me and never enjoyed monkeying around and wasting time trying to do it the way I can in two seconds with the ts lens.

100% agree. It's all I see as well but the average viewer never seems to mention it and I actually tried to clean it up afterwards but had no success and just opted to leave it as it was. I'm with you though.

Carey, one of the best thing's I've learned as a photographer and something I still tend to ignore, is that the average viewer just doesn't see what I see in terms of qualities of an image. I read photographers arguing until they're blue in the face about things when the people paying them and sustaining their careers will have no clue either way. It's either A) do I (the client) like the way I look and B) is there something obvious about the qualities of the image that's taking the viewer away from the moment. All else is academic.
