Default Engagements in Laguna Beach (the real OC)

I had a great time with a fun coupple... It was prety freezing, but they were still up for a few "ocean love" shots

Great work Kawter.

Definately captured the fun element of the day.

The one on the rocks is possibly a little dark in the background for me, but i love the series.

Classical shots. I particular love the one with them running on those bumby rocks, the dark background brings them out and the shape of the rocks just shows how tricky it was for them to look happy at the same time as not tripping over. What a gorgeous spot!

Very nice kawter Would you mind telling me the approximate lens length and aperture for your first shot?

thanks for the input.. probably went overboard on a curve, I'll definately bring some midtones out when it prints






Everyone I didn't quote, thanks for your time in looking and your positive feedback!

The whole series is great! I especially like the first one... did you do any processing on the image? The running one is great too

thanks again tim..

Yah I ran a Kevin Kubota action on #1 (I think it was Hawaiian Punch)

His actions are very nice but they can EASILY become the focus of the photo, distracting from the true subjects

the action i used is in vol2
