    I shot 2nd shooter for the 1st time the other week. I set out to do some detail shots, along with candids, and ceremony shots.

    details

    they're all pretty much underexposed...then the mug shots are too shallow, bit overexposed in some cases, etc.

    they all appear to be properly exposed on my calibrated monitor at home :dunno: I don't have any clipping of the whites (with the exception of the flower girl shots) The shallow DOF was intentional.... but I'm sure not everyone is going to like it.

    Too shallow DOF in most pics in my taste :dunno:
    Otherwise nice.

    1) I kinda wish this shot was either more or less DOF. this way the blurred areas look intentially done. I also this you are at a disadvantage cause that is just a very boring cake. It does not even appear to have a topper that you could have included.

    2)underexposed and pelfed but otherwise I like it

    3) I would crop out the reflection. if you would have gotten the entire tent, I would say keep it but since you cut out the top, I would get rid of it. Whicl you are at it, remove teh telephone pole and wires to the right

    4) this is a nice shot. maybe clone out the flyaway portion of the hairpeice that the girl in green has going on

    5) you again, are at a disadvantage. The ministers face has a huge shadow cast over it.

    6) same shadows but I think if you crop him out and make this a nice tight crop and make the focus the bride, this would be real nice


    as for the groomsmen - most of their eyes look like really weird silver objects

    thanks for the feedback. As far as the shadow on the ministers face.. not worried about it. If I was shooting for the minister, it would be a concern.

    the groomsmen all had bright blue/gray eyes, couple that with the lighting, and that's what you get. Their eyes weren't touched in post at all.

    I'm not the most discerning or experienced, but your pics have a style to them that immediately tells that they're yours.

    1 and 2 could use more light. I like the other stuff, and like I said I like that they look unique and individual to you as a photographer.

    For #5, the brides dress looks pretty white to me. and for #9, holy comb over... kinda

    Also for the headshots, the greater DOF might have worked a little bit better. Not necessarily too much, but the side of the grooms head is pretty blurred, where the rest of the headshots aren't as blurred

    As mentioned, #2 is sweet stuff. I believe if you took a look at the histogram, it would show that it's a bit under.

    mug shots look too shallow, and I don't like 5 much

    assuming 6 was just shrunk and not cropped terribly.. that's a money shot.

    The eyes look so very retouched... It's like people on POTN were doing for a while, but gray will do that... If I were you I'd go back and actually tone them down.

    Great stuff, saw it in your flickr. #2 just looks like you did a bit of dodging on the girl on the right.
