Choking? Post like these are worthless..

Lol, you always that wound up?

I was just trying to hint that he was joking about the "typical wife shots" comments. Seems you missed both of those.

Not really I'm an easy going guy... I guess I did miss It and apologize for taking it the wrong way.. But I rather have something explained in detail since hinting is a bit difficult for me to adentify in text form..

Have a nice day..

No worries :)

If I get bad comments, my first thought always is that they're screwing up with me. (I never take bad photos anyway :rolleyes: )

Most my friends act same, so I guess I'm kinda used to that style of comments. Like one guy bought Mercedes Benz SL500 2-door convertible sports car, first comment from a friend was "So you couldn't afford a car with 4 doors?"

And your pics were good, so that was one giveaway that the comments were meant as joking.

Happy shooting.

I'm sorry if my intended humourous comment was misconstrued, it's just that my wife used to take shots like that without trying, perhaps she's more talented than I thought :lol:

No I didn't think anything of it I just replied basically saying that it was not a mistake by her part. Like I stated before I should have clarified in the beginning that I was the one who cropped then this way. She actually framed them extremely well I just intended to bed the rules a bit. As for tpatana I did go off context and a bit defensive having experienced negativity in this forum in the past. Not only on myself but in other members who are starting this game and lookin for sonekind of advice. To put it bluntly and to the exact point what I get out of these photographers in here who think their ish don't stink is..
Your model sucks
Her pose sucks
Your lighting sucks
Your processing sucks
And yeah you suck too.. Hahaha

Ok well fine point taken
But why are you not giving any advice or tip for me not to suck.

Well whatever guys its not important. people are people and that's the way it is. lets get back to this setup and results thing..

No hard fellings fellas

Overall the benefits of this shot greatly outweigh the slight intrusiveness of a softbox.

...BECAUSE SEEKING VALIDATION FROM ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OPINIONS OF PAID CLIENTS.

Nice.. How difficult you find it using a soft box in an event like this? I have thought of using mine but I'd figured I'd be a bit of a pain specially at the resession with so many people.

I would think if the soft box was on a stand or boom, then it would be much more intrusive than the way it is shot here, with a very mobile assistant holding the light-on-a-stick. this is probably the best way to do this, in my opinion. a light stand can't move out of the way on it's own when not in use.

I'm going to try this on my next birthday or wedding event.. I was thinking I doing it before but the assistant was not there so this time I can take my son or daughter to help me do this.. So far I've been pretty lucky indoors with the lighting but I know in the future that could fade very easily..
Well give it a try..
Thx
