As the title says - 1st e-session. A friend of mine and her fiance. Non paid shoot, we've been good friends since high school and it was good practice to boot. Personally, I'm not a big fan of the antique style edits, but they wanted it for some. C&C welcome and appreciated.

I agree - the antique look isn't my favorite. I have seen some that I like, but these just look yellow and desaturated. I'm not a huge fan of the tilt on the last one. The tilts on the others are - ok I think, I'm a bit confused. It looks like you have a favorite tilt angle though, eh? :D

Otherwise, some nice pictures in there.

Some Canon cameras. Some Canon and Sigma glass. Speedlites, and a few other goodies.

Well they look like they had fun so that is a great thing. Here's my CC. Too much tilt overall. I find that newbies tilt a LOT. I know I tilted way more in the beginning and I rarely tilt now.

#1 - Underexposed, color is pretty green and the tit is eh. But if you improve the exposure and color it'll be much improved.

#2 - Same as above but actually their skin looks red here.. Bumping the brightness/exposure will help with that.

#3 - Same as above, but this one isn't QUITE as badly underexposed and the skin tones look closer to correct. They are different in all three shots :)

#4 - I think it's a cute concept and yay for no tilt! I love their cute expressions. You have some hot spots (his head, her leg) and the processing.. it looks like someone peed on the image. Yes, vintage does have a warm tint to it but I think this is too yellow.

#5 - Pretty much all the same thoughts as above.

#6 - I like the moment and the composition but you have some hard light here.

#7 - Focus and DOF is nice.. Light is a bit harsh and they look really orange.

#8 - Same as above and tilt is no good. It makes you feel like you're sliding out of the frame.

I think overall you show good potential but you just need to work on fine tuning your technical skills and your processing for a more consistant result.

Funny, I'm a newbie and am kinda obsessed with getting it completely straight. Was actually thinking when I first saw the shots, hmmm... maybe I should try the tilt. Just never seems to work for me.

Haha, yeah I wanted to experiment a bit with tilting...never really played around with it much until this shoot so it was fun to try. I have shots that are straight as well just to be sure I covered everything though. My brief stint as a real estate photographer had me obsessing over straight lines for a while; this was a nice chance to go a little crazy.

Thanks for your input Aurora, that's exactly the type of feedback I'm looking for. Yeah, it was definitely sunny that day, and the only time they were available for the shoot was late morning/early afternoon...ugh. I was hoping for a little cloud cover, but no such luck. Found some shade at the first location, but nothing I could really do about it at the beach.
