Default Assisting the Largest Wedding she's done so far...

As some of you know, my good friend Jen 'song4themoon' asked me to help assist her with a couple of weddings she's shooting this month due to the fact that she is getting close to introducing her new little one to the world.

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...d.php?t=376113

Here are some of my shots that I've worked on so far. I haven't had a whole lot of time to really work on them since I can only process these in between my busy work schedule and QT with the family, but hopefully I'll have more to show by the end of the week. Jen truly is a talented photographer, so I can only hope my images are half as good as hers. And I'm honored she asked me do this in the first place. Thanks, Jen. You guys and gals are pretty brutal on the wedding forums, but I'm fully prepared to take the lumps.

Oh, and there's no chocolate or vanilla action involved in any of these.

Ed, WOW. What more can I saw? Those are amazing. Did you shoot mostly with the 5D? They look like FF all the way.

Since these are all fabulous to me, I'll get my least favorites out of the way - #18 and #20 - Just not enough to excite me. The rest are just superb! You said no chocolate action was going on, what did you do with the following: 2,10, 11, 12. (I love the PP on these.) Great job Ed! You and Jen make a super team... Maybe a partnership down the road? I'm humbled by these.

Those shots were processed using a preset I came up with in Lightroom. I guess it is sort of chocolate-like.

Me and Jen partners? If only I were so lucky.

Thanks for feedback, all! Oh, and I used the 5D, 20D and 40D. Care to guess which shots were taken with what camera? heh heh...

Nice pics Ed, I love 1, 6 and 10. I think you did a very good job on these.
I am not a fan of the blurr on the last 3, otherwise great job!! Thanks again for helping me out.

Hmmmm... that almost chocolaty looking action that you used there makes me doubt my beloved chocolate syrup action now.. this one looks awesome. You said its from lightroom?

And lmao at your post title

Yeah, that's an LR preset I came up with. Pretty sweet, eh?

Regarding 19 and 20, I'm not sure if you recall that conversation we had at the reception about using bad shots, but those two in particular were badly OOF, so I ushered in the gaussian blur technique. Guess that didn't save these, eh?

I think in 19 you might be able to get away with it.. 20 not so much. But you have so many good shots, it really doesnt matter.

Do you have any reception shots? I am curious how those turned out

Here's one I posted in the recent Canon 15mm Fisheye thread...

(removed)

13, 14, and 15 are all reception shots as well. However, I think I got more shots of the guest than I do of the B&G as far as the reception goes. I need to sit down an examine them more closely and figure out how I want to process those.
