    well, they're terrible. ignoring composition, I still screwed up technically a few times because I wasn't really thinking about it. I had told them we'd need a few hours.. we get there and I find out she has to be somewhere else in like 1 hour. felt rushed the whole time.

    no PP except white balance and resize.. I won't do anything else but crop a few and maybe try 1 or 2 in b&w

    I think a better lighting set up could have helped the shots, but they're pretty good. what were you using for lighting?

    I like the lighting on the last one, I wonder what a low powered fill flash would look like though. I like most of them, good job!

    Theyre not THAT bad, some are too soft but I'm sure they'll end up liking them and that's what matters (to them). At long focal lengths watch your shutter speed: remember, the longer it is, the harder it is to hold it steady

    Camera Make: Canon
    Camera Model: Canon EOS 30D
    Image Date: 2008:11:01 17:29:26
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 122.0mm
    CCD Width: 3.08mm
    Exposure Time: 0.033 s (1/30)
    Aperture: f/8.0
    ISO equiv: 400
    Exposure Bias: -0.33
    White Balance: Auto
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)

    580ex on camera in manual. the flash was recycling very slowly, though, and I missed a lot of shots.. I couldn't figure out why. when I got home I took the batteries out and found out that apparently either my brother or sister took my rechargeable batteries and put in crappy ones.

    I should have taken them out to charge even if they didn't need, and then I would have noticed.

    on the wtf arms pic, she was trying to show off the ring a bit. and yeah I kept telling them when posing them to do what felt natural and comfortable, but a lot of them still look very awkward.

    the shot where he's down on one knee, I couldn't figure out later what I didn't like about it, but it is definitely the DOF. when I got the idea for that I was much further away shooting at almost 200mm.. after I posed em I was closer and went to 70mm.. didn't even think about it. 4ft dof changed to 20ft. :doh:
