What do you think? Please be honest and all let me know if I could edit the picture to make it any better.

Yea, I got some of them in focus. This was back when I first started to learn about DOF. I sorta went DOF crazy lol.

I love the concept but I think it is a bit too much bokeh. You still want to be able to recognize just not see them clearly. Just

I don't have a problem with the concept, I dig it, as long as you have some of them in focus too. To me though, if a wedding has fake flowers, I keep as little focus on them as possible and also, your light seems rather flashy.


I am super cool n' stuff.

lol, I was a 2nd shooter at this weeding. I was told to get different shots and different angles. The main shooter was doing the "in focus" stuff.

I am never going to be a main shooter. I'm more into portraits and sport work.

Tis a bit harsh Richard. He explained he was experimenting with Bokeh. He was not the primary shooter. Judging by your website you should be able to offer some constructive advice on how he could make it better next time.

I don't think you can do much with them. The couple is completely unidentifiable, and even if there was some more definition to their faces, etc, it would probably be best as a promo photo for the reception centre, or flower arranger.

I quite like the idea, just not something I think could be given to the married couple.

If you had more of the table the flowers were standing on, you could have a photo frame with an in-focus shot of the happy couple. Maybe something from a pre-wedding shoot, a first date, or perhaps composited into this image from another pic take on the day. (Maybe you can start taking an empty frame to weddings?)


I like making photos and sometimes I think I'm getting better... then I realise it doesn't matter. I like making photos!

I did something similar in my last wedding. I had the B&G a lot further away in this pic than you do in yours so you can make them out:

i'm not a big fan of the selective flower shot, but sometimes, at client's request, i will do them.

i've learned, or rather, IMHO, i like it better when you can just barely make out the couple, usually I shoot at f4 or f5.6 depending. I like those shots where u can make out the couple in the background.
