Mind giving some critique?

Hey all, not been on these forums for a long time and in fact I haven't been participating in the wedding photography world for quite some time even though I'm still shooting weddings. Anyway, I've never really asked for feedback on my work before, not sure why but I guess I've generally always felt I knew the direction I was going and what I should be working on next.

However, while I'm still working to improve I'd like some input from others to see if there's things I'm missing that I haven't thought of myself.

Here's my blog with the latest weddings, any feedback appreciated.

Cheers.

If you want critique, post a few photos here. Most people aren't going to click to your website to somehow judge your whole body of work.

I was after people looking through a body of a posted wedding and seeing what they liked or didn't like rather than individual photos.

If you want an analysis of your body of work you might have to pay someone to do that. This is a forum; most people here are totally happy to provide critique for specific photos. Post a few.

I think you're missing the point in that while critique for individual photos is appreciated, it's more about general feedback on a set. Maybe the sets don't show enough family shots, couple shots or perhaps there are too many abstract ones etc. Maybe there aren't enough photos of the bride or parents, hence the ask.

Either way it's fine, I just thought I'd pop in and ask. This thread can just slowly sink to the bottom of the internet. :)

You are missing the point. If you want serious critique post shots here for a review. Asking for a review of a portfolio page ensures the depth of a facebok like.

The link goes to my blog, it's a single click to the most recent weddings. Once there, a scroll through will give the viewer a feeling of my work and maybe make them think, "Well, I like such and such shots, but what about x y z and why are there so many couple photos??".

That was all really, I'm not allowed to post up 20+ photos here.

So post 4. Make an effort to be part of the conversation. Nobody is going to take the time to give thoughtful critique of 20 images.

Thanks for your feedback but if you're not going to add to the threads request then I feel it's better to not comment at all and let the thread sink. If someone did come across this and wanted to help a fellow photographer, then let them.

As previously mentioned, posting less than a full set would negate the entire point of what I'm asking. I realise some people may not want to click through to my blog to see a full set, and that's absolutely fine. It's not like we know each other and I expected most people wouldn't, but equally, one or two people might.

Clicked on your link, very good stuff.

But I agree, you would get more responses with posting a few images

OP, you can post up to 8 images when starting a thread. But you can always post more later in the thread if needed.
