Gear. shot with a 6D and either a 85 1.2 or 35 1.4 lighting was with a flash on a umbrella, up to the bench picture I reflected off of the umbrella at the bench I shot through the umbrella.
I had a simple trigger and moved the light in and out as well as adjusted output on the flash. Its a Metz 52 and I was anywhere from 1/32 to 1/4 power.
I haven't shot many portraits so my posing skills need work. Also my PP is pretty rudimentary.

Only the last few have any PP done the rest are Jpegs from out of the camera. I do have the raw files
Thanks

I agree. Most don't care to click links when we have the facility to show the images right here in the forum.

Seems a bit of a snapshot to me.

Backlighting doesn't seem a good choice - the couple are in shadow and the sky is blown out. There are posts growing out of her head. Watch your background. Very centered subject.

I would have thought(?) the subject was the kiss and their faces so perhaps these should occupy a much larger fraction of the image.

Nice focus!

Your smugmug pictures are all over the place.

Some are very dark, other light but flat. A few have them on the right side of the frame but she's pointing out of the frame (to our right). Some of the crops are also strange to me.

What exactly are you looking for on feedback?

I'd work on PPing them and only show your final images, not (jpg out of the camera). With no editing done I'm not sure what you want us to check.

It was more about the angle of the flash. I know that I was kind of all over the place with them. I have worked on a couple, I'll put them up.

On this one the tip of the foot is against the frame and she's leading out of the frame. Not a bad image but composition I can't get behind.

Cleaned up the concrete, crop and contrast (on a jpg, so not to quality)

Why use f4.5 when you could have blurred out the background more? It's almost a misuse of that quality of lens. The top one the background is overexposed and #2 the moderately in focus greenery detracts from the couple. Keep going though! Already pretty nice but you can take it up a notch :-)

Suggestion: move the people further away from the backdrop so you can get some separation/bokeh.
Some really great pics.
