Pics are back up! But man these are some OLD photos of mine! LOL... And as I've said MANY times before, I don't believe I was or am doing anything that hasn't been done before!

But you have documented it here so that others can see it ... lots of talented folks still need new ideas (to them) to help their juices flow ... doesn't matter who else has done it. :-) And we like you.

This thread is awesome. A question I have though and maybe this is dumb but what f-stop would you use in this scenario? f/8 or f/11? And where would your focus point be if using center focus? I'd like to try these at some point but would probably screw it up.

Sorry if this is a dumb question.

I usually use F8, and I focus on the bride & groom always!

Wow, the good ole days!

These times were a lot of fun, a lot of learning and plenty of competition to provide maximum inspiration! I miss it!

Great viewing these again Jeff!

Good job! One thing I always try to do is keep the bride and groom the most front. It some of those my eye was drawn to other parts of the wedding party.

These are great shots, and I love the arrangement with the use of steps and uneven spacing. It looks great. Thanks for sharing.
