    Now that her wedding is over I can finally post her bridal pictures! And since I've whored them around everywhere else on the web, I thought I should add therm here.

    Check them out...C&C...rip them apart...

    I bet the originals look 10 times better...but if plastic is what you are after, then you succeeded.

    Man, I'm getting that "plastic" comment alot. I really didn't do any softening on her, just got rid of some blemishes with the spot healing brush. Perhaps it's some other PP I was doing. :dunno: Her skin in RL is really smooth to begin with.

    My only critique would be to watch your backgrounds and make sure there is nothing growing out of her head. I'd also pull her farther away from the wall or background when possible so that you can get some nice separation. But that's just me. Some people like to have everything in the photo sharp. I don't.

    Otherwise, good job. Her skin does have that plastic look to it, especially the first shot.

    You mean like the naked hand-standing figurine on her shoulder in the first shot? Is that some kinda subliminal message?

    That and the rest of the "lamp of life" coming out of her head in the third shot, symbolizing that the path to glory and freedom begins with a 60w bulb.

    Not bad for a first time, but some things could be better. #2 could use an OCF to the right and that lamp is quite distracting in a few of those photos. Overall good job though.

    I like them, plastic skin look or not, they look really good. I personally love shooting black brides...their skin is always smooth as silk. The only thing that's a downside is that exposing for their skin sometimes means overexposing of the dress.

    First thing I noticed was plastic skin too. But if that's how her skin looks like to begin with then that's how it's going to be.

    Thanks, Normally I'm a fan of ultra small DOF, but I really liked the architecture and textures in that room and didn't want to blur any of it out, so I kept it stopped down for those shots.

    We both loved that guy, so he stayed! :rofl:

    :rofl: That's one of my biggest flaws actually. I need to learn to pay attention past the subject.

    Thanks! I don't know why I didn't use it for that shot.....Oh, I remember now... I didn't have a CTO and it had a bad mix of color...so the ones I did, I made B&W. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3532/3714199694_689e9e4a48.jpg



    Thanks, exposing for her wedding was even worse! :eek3:
