Shot a wedding for my wifes cousin...
lemme know what you think
the photos aren't bad but they don't look very wedding-ish (outside of the dress and such). Where are the actual wedding shots?
Actual wedding shot are boring as hell ... this is the bride standing beside her parents, her uncle, his parents, them at the church ... thoes pics are more for stock. "this is what me and my family looked like on our wedding day"
I decided that wedding photos don't have to be like that. I took more candid photos then the standard "ok smile ... next"
I have to shot another this weekend. Does any one have a link that has different posses for the Bride and Groom. I would like to do something different like I said and I would like some Ideas.
If there was one angle that made the bride look ugly, you sure caught it in the second photo.
bump this later tonight when i'm on my desktop, i've got lots of examples and lots of links.
you like the more traditional, fine art or photojounalist style?
She looks like a fucking LOTR orc
notice the amount of soft light, and warm light. and also the diffusion. I'd look into a tiffen warm soft filter, maybe level 1 or 2
a couple of my early ones
16 yr old bride from FM forums
some twisted shit. I had t show those to my parents who are bitching that I might be too young and shit. That shut em up for a little bit.
shot in my old backyear too. I loved that beach
Is there a way to get that soft look and the shadowed border in photoshop?
yes, but it will always look better done in camera. you can get vignettes for next to nothing, or go to a fabric store and make your own, and you can make your own diffusion materials too. A thin piece of acetate, a old UV filter sprayed with hair spray, etc. Tons of ways to do it for next to nothig, and you don't have to fuss with it later on.
if you shoot RAW i thik you can adjust the vignette right in adobe RAW, atleast you could in CS. It was meant to take away a vignette from a crappy lens but i suppose it would work the other way too
TheCanon 135 F/2.8 soft focus lens woks welltoo, but you have to shoot betwen 2.8 and 4 to really get anything, and it takes a while to get the right amount, its easy to over diffuse a picture. you never want the effect to overshadow the picture itself or be the first thing that comes to mind when ou see it
those were wedding shots!
cobber's pics, the posted pics, the links
Viper.. u fucking rule as a photographer.
um, thanks, but only the bottom 3 are mine. The others re fairly well known examples from others. about a third are of my friends (the younder looking couple with the fisheye look (not the REALLY you couple, thats just wrong). They both happen to be pro wedding and portrait photographers themselves.
the posted pics. I thought they were all great!
ah, yeah, just some reference photos for reasons like this.
These are my other photo friends from back home. I went for her a while back, but it didn't work out. All for the best anyways
Holy Michael Jackson nose!
My second wedding..........
