View Full Version : First shot at wedding shots- opinions gratefully received!

I am known as an enthusiastic amateur and so was cajoled into doing some shots at my soon-to-be-sister-in-law's wedding. It was mostly the getting ready bit, but I'm fairly happy with what i got.
Constructive criticism would be grand.

I think you got some really good shots based on these. I am no expert but here's my two cents. The second one is framed pretty well but would be nicer if the focus was on the bride and not the make up artist.. I love the last one, it looks great!

The last shot is great, really captured their special day, classic shot. If I could nit pick I'd only say its just a shame his one foot is missing but thats being picky, its actually not a big deal because the eye sees the brides feet complete so blends well. The DOF is excellent and converting it was the perfect choice.
Others were nice but that last is my fav.

Ditto on those above me, the last one is an instant favorite. It's not a very good critique, but the others seemed too cluttered, or cropped to tight, or something. I wish I could give some better insight, as they're all nice photographs, and probably better then I could take! :)

I think the shots are great for your first wedding. However, I think you need to do more post processing to make the shots stand out more.... in general, they seem kind of dark. Like everybody else, my fave is the last one... the expression on both the bride and groom is priceless.

amironsi- thanks. I'm getting married to No 1 so that is nice!
Cheers for the comments people.
I was a little hamstrung by shooting without a flash. I generally shot these with a 50mm 1.6 opened up fully at ISO 400. Yes, they were dark because of that. I don't tend to like the harshness of the on-board flash and I haven't been able to afford an external one.
I'd have like no 5 more if I'd been able to PS out the plugs on the wall beneath the mirror.
The last one is a bit of a cheat as I duplicated layers and added Gaussian blur to make it look like I'd got much better DOF!
Thanks again for the comments
