I like them! In #1 and 7 I'd take the exposure down a bit as the flash seems a bit harsh. Much better job in the in-between ones. I'd also do a separate layer for #5 to get rid of the shiny spots. She's just so cute and, for me, the shiny bits are a detriment to the photo.

I like your shots, but I agree that a diffuser/bounce on the flash would help to eliminate hot spots on your subjects' fore head.

I appreciate your input :-)
For all these shots I used the flash at 75º with a white card, except for #6, which I bounced off the ceiling.

Thanks for that info! In that case, did you shoot these in RAW? If so, it should be a simple matter to dial down the exposure and highlights in Photoshop or Lightroom.

Overall a nice set and the job done ;)
Yesterday i do just the same with the same gear lol
Next time try flash strait so you avoid that harsh on the top of photo/heads and keep the white card.
Regards from PT ;)

Thank you! Unfortunately it was a wooden ceiling so I couldn't bounce from it.

I know I might be blown to smithereens, but, I would keep an eye on girls with cleavages like the girl in the green dress. It could be too revealing for a photograph inside the church. Maybe she could have turned a little bit more frontally.

I have to add, that I have no issue with the photo, but a religious family may not want that as a memory of their little ones communion. Tough issue to deal with

It was pointed at 75º with a white card, but I do have to agree the subjects look a bit blown. Thank you for your input.

That photo was in the reception, not inside the church. I noticed it when I was taking the photo, and she always striked that pose when she was photographed, but I didn't know how to approach it without making people uncomfortable so I left it at that.
Thank you for your input.

yes, difficult to approach somebody and tell her that their cleavage is a bit much. I do not want to be in that positions myself ! :lol:
