Okay here they are... Well at least a few of the ones I've processed so far, but I think I'm calling it quits tonight I'm just too tired... Let me know what you think, good, bad and ugly. Thanks!

very nice K... very nice.. I love the second shot..How "artsy" of you...lol
the rest are great...so far so good. did you try to straighten out the first one or did you do that "tilt" on purpose? i love the one with the tre people, the little boy in the suit reminds me of someone from the 20'2 youd see in an old timey photograph.

Thank you guys, lets hope they all turn out this good, I have yet to really look at the rest of the photos my eyes were just killing my last night...

Zacker, I'm glad you like the second shot I keep going back and forth with that one so just happy to see someone else likes it LOL. Yes the tilt was on purpose, it just looked too plan standing straight up and down, though I do have one straight so I'll let her choose what she prefers...
Thanks Ross.

I encountered my first mistake... I forgot fill flash on the formals. I had the flash on just not pointed forward... :doh Most of them are fine since the clouds were going in and out but I've been doing some extra PP on the ones where the sun was out full force, guess I can't be perfect LOL

Either way here's a few more that I really like, there will be more to follow as soon as I can get myself back working on them. I really appreciate all the comments, if you think I can improve any of them please let me know Thanks!

I love this little girl by the way, she was so adorable!!

I still have to run them through neat image, but I'm undecided, some of the noise looks okay with the picture (flower girl in black and white) what do you guys think?

On that photos of the flower girl in black and white, you're right, some of the noise looks ok. I love the other black and white one where the's getting the flower pinned to his lapel.

very nice... hey.. about noise.. im noticing on my pics.. they look great in PS, look noisey as heck in Microsoft Image viewer, and yet are very low (almost none) noise in either IE or Microsoft image and fax viewer.. What gives.. Im thinking alot of the images i had run through neat image dosnt really need to be run. Just a thought, on one image where you see noise, right click it and click open with.. and pick Internet explorer.

Well the first one doesn't do to much for me but the rest are spot on. Very good job, They should be pleased with them.

The shots look really good... you did a great job, and I'm sure they'll be pleased :thumb

The shot with the girl in the doorway, I would clone out the chandelier, the hanging over her head is a little distracting and it's such an awesome shot otherwise =) You might want to try that one in B&W too... I think it would look great

Thanks for the suggestion Trish I may have to go and do that, I cloned out a person already and didn't even think of the light... duh. LOL. There are more photos on my site, it's under John and Judy, the password is 'deckert' if anyone's interested in checking out some more. I'll try to get some of the formals up today, I really, really wish I had remembered my fill flash, it's killing me! :(

Don't beat yourself up... we don't allow that here :) You did a great job... and for any one little thing you forgot or did wrong, you did 50 things right ;) and for a first timer, the shots are AWESOME... you've captured (yes Tom, I said captured :D ) a good variety of shots, the kind that really appeal to people (some artsy shots that capture the feel and importance of the day, happy moments, special moments, the "family" angle... the kids and how important they are to the scene....and more).... many photographers who might have remembered fill flash, would've never thought of shooting the dress, or necklace, etc... you put your heart into it, and it shows.... and you have many many great shots that I'm sure the people will love and tresure for many years :hail

I can't decide which of the first two I like, if any... what do you guys think?

JerseyMutt

Wow...these are some great additions. I really love the first shot of the bride and groom kissing and the cake.

My favorite by far though is the flowers in selective coloring. Not only did the SC come out good, but your use of DOF is impeccable in that photo. :thumb

I agree with Trish. Whatever technical details aside, you definitely got "the moment."

05-07-2007, 12:21 PM
yeah the selective coloring on the flowers has a LOT of impact...

KDN

I just wanted to update you guys on this one... the bride and groom did love them and I'm waiting for them to decide on prints now, so keep your fingers crossed for me as this is where I should make a couple of bucks. :thumb



Okay here's a really crazy idea...you think I should do it again?? Someone asked me after seeing the photos, would be the same deal...pay for my rentals and I'd make any money off of prints, albums and such... so do you think I'm completely insane to do it again? Are the photos really good enough to do it, I don't want anyone to be disappointed with their wedding pictures, I would feel horrible. Thanks guys/gals!!!!

JayVig

I can't say if you should do it again. I remember what you went through the first time. The nervousness and anxiety. I don't blame you on that.

However, I think the 2nd time around you'd be less nervous for a couple of reasons. First, you've been through it once and you know what to expect as far as setup and timing and equipment. You've seen what makes better shots and have an eye for weddings now. The last reason is that the photos were good enough for this time and for you to do it again. The customer loved them and someone else liked these enough to want your work. That should be a confidence builder and help keep you calm if you chose to do it again.

Finally, this is going to sound bad but not now i mean it - you're not a professional and they know that. So they know going in that they're going to get quality photographs commensurate with your experience level and not one of a pro. I'm not downplaying your abilities Kadian. I think yoy know what I'm trying to get across.

All thing considered, I think maybe you should try it again.

Thank you Jay, I didn't take it bad, I do know what you are tring to say and I completely agree with you. I actually enjoyed the last wedding and that's the only reason why I am considering it again, well that and I didn't fail miserably LOL I do know I don't have the pro photography skills of someone who has done weddings for awhile, and I know deep in my brain that I should follow a pro if I decide to do it professionally, but I also really enjoyed the experience and like the fact that I could possible put another wedding under my belt. I've been weighing it back and forth, and my biggest thing is that they liked what they saw. Again this is a low budget wedding, and the part I'm most excited about is that it's a younger couple that would be willing to set enough time aside for me to take some experimental couple shots, I didn't get to do that with the last couple and was really looking forward to it. I don't know, that's why I threw it out there for you guys to give me some ideas, it's always good to get opinions from a third party. I appreciate it!

that flower shot is tops!!! I love the OOF couple in the BG in it,,, if it were just the flowers it might have been boring but the DOF and BG makes it a winner!!

I have to second that....you added feeling to the shots where another photographer who didn't know the family might have just taken the standard shots and been done with it. Great job!!!!
