Here are few shots taken from my most recent engagement session. These were taken within the last hour of "good" daylight left. Let me know what you think of the set! Comments welcome!

Subjects are well lite, except #3 needed some fill. I like the PP you did to #4. Overall nice set.

I would agree as well with the 3rd shot...after I viewed the photo with the rest of the group..it looked a little washed out. I still have some fine tuning that I need to do but this was a quick and dirty export to keep them happy until I finish the remainder of photos.

Thanks!

#4 is my favourite. Good lighting on all of them. The up-nose shot in #1 isn't all that flattering, especially for your female subject.

Here are a few additional shots that I've finished processing. C&C welcome!

No 1 never take portraits looking up at people it is very unflattering
No 2 Very pleasant with the warm Autumn colours forming a nice backdrop
No 3 sorry I can never see the point of photographing people from the back when it is a portrait session
No 4 Not the most elegant location and all those arms intertwined look very ungainly
No 5 Nice pose good location but maybe a touch washed out
No 6 A good fun shot but cutting off the end of her foot was careless in a portrait shoot

Some of the poses were at the request of the couple. Thanks for the feedback! I am still learning and will take these into consideration for future sessions!
