Default First wedding (as 2nd shooter)

Hard, scratch that, impossible to find people to assist in Seattle so here are some shots i took at my friend's wedding as a 2nd shooter. First time and shot before i got my omnibounce so i know it's a bit harsh on light. It's hard being 2nd shooter since you can't really tell people where to go so I just kinda hung back and did what I could

Just getting the feel for photoshop as well so any c/c on that welcome as well.

c/c appreciated and image edits ok, just let me know what you did.

#1 looks good but the processing seems to ruin it.
#2 is cool, maybe give the background a little color. I'd have tried to get the B&G up and left a little.
#3 good
#4 Again i'm not so hot on strong selective color. Maybe make the background sepia instead of B&W. Or have the background only partially desaturated.
#5 Not hugely flattering as she's about to talk, but not bad - a good shot. It's blue though, you need to adjust the white ballance.

A good start as a 2nd!

I like them all except #2 & #5. #5 can be saved if you do some manipulation and maybe convert to black and white. Over all though 3 out of 5 ain't bad. Keep on trying.

I only see 3 pics (one wide one with 3 images, starting with a pomegranate)

the second shot is well exposed and well lit.. I think the angle and composition make it a tad boring.. might want to lead the viewer in by framing the hands to lead the eyes vs having them dandling off to the side.. possibly a higher angle would make it more dramatic and emphasize here eyes& lashes a bit more


the other dont do much for me as i REALLY can't stand selective color and the angle of #3 gives her 4 chins


But all that said you have it down.. shoot shoot shoot as a 2nd, everyone starts there (or at least should) and we all go through tons of time developing and refining or own style
