I posted this story on this in another tread without the images at the time of my shoot gone bad. My clients were running late, my cell phone died so I could not figure out where they were, the area we were gonna have the shoot was overrun with a reception with no parking. I found a radio Shack and got my battery charged, found my clients, and when we finally got a location we had 45 minutes to get r done. I thought my problems were over when a ranger was rushing us out a little early. This was literately done on the run on the way out of the park stopping where we could to get a shot when I saw one.

For some strange reason, two of my images did not show up even tho I did them exactly the same way as the other three. Anyway, here they are...

Thanks Seres I was worried to be honest. True story it was. what usually takes me two hours we did in 30 minutes being pushed out of the park. The last thing I wanted was to show my clients so so pics just before their wedding. But I was pretty proud of them considering. If I saw a shot it was like, hey officer, just one more sec ok... Over here guys quick lol The guard was actually pretty cool, but I could tell I was not his favorite person right then

I'm not feeling much emotion from these shots, part of that just might be the lack of emotion the clients seam to display.

#1 nice overall but the branch or plant that's covering part of her arm and extending out to the left is a distractions.
#2 (her between the tree) looks OOF, or has some motion blur
#3 I think is the best, well exposed and lit. Just looks a bit soft
#4 again looks soft like the shutter speed was a bit slow causing a tiny blur
#5 again soft and there is a big spot just above her hand you didn't finish editing that's distracting

You are right about 5 I cant believe I missed that. They are soft, when I said I did this on the run, that was no exaggeration. Very quick pose compose and shoot, then off we went. To compensate I emphasized the softness of the images by toning down the clarity a little. It actually worked this time and I pulled it off (for them, of course that is speculative depending on who is looking). No excuse for the spot that was a horrible oversight. Emotion yes you nailed it. They do not express much. I actually got way more than I expected in a couple of the shots represented here. There were others more private that I did not share that were a little more "tender" if you will... Thanks for the cc

If it were myself, i would re schedule with the couple. These all have great potential but you can tell they are rushed.

Nice lighting and poses. Watch your focus, looks like it's having trouble finding the eyes.

The branch(?) in #1 makes it look like she has a large bruise on her arm. The rest seem out of focus.

They all look to be OOF and a couple have missed focus. The blues in the shadows (WB being off) also shows in his hair.

I actually offered a re-shoot before I even got home to look at the images. The wedding is at the end of this month, so before was out of the question due to my travel time, but I offered a couples shoot or a trash the dress / post ceremony shoot to them if they liked. They were actually happy with the images though, so it worked out OK. Considering what they expected as rushed as we were. They were pretty happy with the results and honestly so was I.

And yes they are all soft. In PP rather than try to fix that, I actually accentuated it even more to bring out what I thought was a hazy dream like focus. I sold it... they liked it and it worked for them. That being said, yes I wish I could have taken more time to get my focal point on the eyes a bit more and such, but honestly.... and I am truly not making excuses, it was the best I could do. We were all in motion from start to finish.

With more experience, maybe Ill be able to pull off the focus in similar conditions a bit better. But this was my first shoot where most of these were in manual and not Av or Tv I was afraid to switch to Tv and get under exposed shots so I just rode the settings out.

Thanks all for your cc I really do appreciate it

blurry and out of focus for some of them. watch out for bride's arm as it enlarges when pressed against the side and females don't like it AT ALL. I also wish to see more "engagement" between them. They don't have to be kissing to show some emotion/connection

I agree that alot are OOF and soft but if the couple is TRULY happy with the pics then that is what matters. Are you photographing their wedding too?
