good tips, read a bit about using the FT tool in a Kelby book, helps to see it actually in use.

Jamie, great tips and great photos, you're a fantastic photographer and I'd hire you to shoot my own wedding, should that ever happen. I've added a link to this thread from the wedding forum FAQ :)

Wow - Thanks Tim, that really means a lot! I am enjoying another month of relative quiet, but itching to get at it again!

So when are you getting married :D?

Maybe its just me being British but I would never dream of "re-shaping" a bride by hiding her behind the groom or shooting at such an angle that 90% of her body is missing.

I don't think being British has anything to do with it!

I understand your point of view, but don't feel that your average B&G would realise that this is what you are doing when you pose them in this way.

As a wedding photographer, your job is to make them look as good as possible while capturing the atmosphere and events of the day. If you can do this by arranging them in different ways - then that has got to be a good thing for them.

With regard to 90% of the body missing - take a look at a lot of modern / contempory portraiture and wedding images and you will frequently find that a large portion of their body (often up to half a face) is missing.

Thanks for this guide - good, honest and practical advice.
