Took these out on Mirror Lake on OSU campus, I'll post a mix of my disguise photoshoot (that I used as cover to discretely get the proposal) too:

I like the timing and emotion on 4,5 & 6 is very good - nice job - althought the exposure on the last is a bit funky.

I don't really care for the "into the sun" desaturated look of the first three. They remind me of thin, underexposed negatives, but that's just me and I recognize that some folks are into this.

Thanks for the comments! =D I don't know why I enjoy the shooting into the sun so much, but the angle and the reflection off the "lake" made it overly easy. Otherwise it would have looked fairly flat and boring.

Just looked at the whole gallery, really good job, you got the reactions and their emotions perfectly, you can just tell they are making the "Hi mom, I just got engaged!!!" call.

I'm way too curious. What is the story with the cell phone?

Hah! This was moments after it all happened; they both called their parents. Very fun time!

Nice job. How did you keep the shadows to a minimum when shooting with the sun behind them?

Great stuff, Glueeater (especially that 2nd image)! Nice to see another member from Ohio! Are you currently in Columbus?

#3 and #4 are truly excellent.


/perhaps *slightly* biased, since I pass that spot every day :D

Really cool idea to be sneaky :)

Thanks for all the comments guys! Sorry I don't frequent as much as I used to.

There's some post done to these - so the black levels are lifted and shadows likely slightly crushed. I generally am exposed 2/3 to 1 1/2 stops over.

I'm actually in Cincinnati now! I travel all around though.

Great pictures. I have had the opportunity to shoot two surprise engagements. I enjoyed both of them.
