    Since my first one didn't go so well I tried a little harder on my second bride. However I did have a bit of an advantage with this one.....she's my oldest daughter. :big grin:

    These are still a work in progress, and I have a lot more, but I wanted to share. Some have been PS's, others have not. C&C is always appreciated. I'm still trying to decide if I like the bold red or the softer pink shade on the wall color.

    Thanks. Working with someone that's comfortable in front of the camera makes world of difference.

    #2 is gold! only nitpick: you cut off a part of her left shoulder

    good pp as there is almost no color bleeding from the red wall on her dress, great job!

    I'm avoiding the inlaws for a minute, so here's CC for what its worth

    1. great color and light. I would have turned her head down a bit to get less up the nose action. And a softer arm angle. I'm guessing you were going for more of a confident look, but she can't really pull it off

    2 I like the expression, but might have lit her back differently. It would take away from the face a bit though

    3 wish the wall was a darker tone to make her pop more and not look so ghost like. might be nice to see what she was looking at, out a window?

    4 more fill, turn the head just a little

    5 really busy, especially with the iron. not much you can do about that, maybe a longer focal length to make her pop more from the surroundings :hs:

    6 wish the head was looking towards the other side of the frame, and the flowers were a bit more in focus and not so bright

    7 nice

    8 70's ish

    9 nice

    10 bend the straight arm a bit

    11PP the veins a bit

    great images, but the inconsistant color on the wall kinda annoys me.

    These aren't meant to be seen together in an album. I'm trying to see what version of the color I like on the walls. If she wants an album, I'd make the colors consistent. However, if she wants one print to display, then I'll make the colors whatever looks the best, hence the different tints.

    There's something going through her in every shot.
