Default Sunday's wedding (Maui) part 1

This couple was tons of fun. The bridal party was absolutely the funnest ever. I've been trying lots of new angles - not sure how I feel about them. CC welcome and appreciated.

Very solid work. My only critique would be that you lost a lot of blacks in #3, probably the result of that action. ...something thats easy to do to much of.

Thanks for the comments guys! I know I may have went overboard with #3 but I love the softness of it

Beautiful shots! How did you achieve that effect in #3? I don't think you went overboard at all.

Thanks... Good old midnight sepia. I hardly ever use this action without converting to black and white first but for some shots I think it really works nicely. I liked it in this one because you can't see their faces so I don't mind losing detail in the rest of the shot.

Just photoshop cs. You have to download it (for free). I forget the exact site I got it from. Can anyone help me here?

Did you use the omni bounce diffuser on the shots?


I dont' see any shadows.

Thanks again for looking and commenting. I didn't use a diffuser - I never do outside anymore - I heard it doesn't help but it only drains the batteries in your flash (I may not know what the heck I'm talking about) but it makes sense to me because your flash needs to work extra hard to fill in the shadows when a diffuser is diffusing the light.

Midnight sepia is such a nice tool when used on the right type of photo isn't it? I think it makes a normal photo look dreamy.
