A few of my favourites from last night. 5D3 + 24-70 + 135mm oh, and loads of flash.

Par for the course. You're not going to surprise anyone with quality work anymore ;)

Thanks. Loving the 5d3's, but I do miss the dual-pixel and touch screen from my 70D.

Some really nice photos there but I think the first 3 could do with a warmer white balance to stay consistent with the others and to show the effect of the setting sun.

I will do the same thing on occasion and let more of a cool color come through and then adjust to more of a warm look on others. Depends on what the client seems to like. Such an easy adjust in raw these days. I do like the suggestion though with the idea of the setting sun.

Also, not one looking directly at the camera. We need to push that thought more when we shoot engagements. Very nice poising with these shown.

I agree that the white balance is all over the place. With weddings or events I try to keep it consistent, with sessions like this I'll usually be a little more liberal with it.

Nice work. The first couple seem like they could be warmer though

How do you keep a flow going when carrying loads of flashes? Are you just so quick with them that it dosnt break your flow going from spot to spot?

I always try to do one or two shots lit with flash balancing the ambient in a location like your number 5 but then when it comes to "ok lets try down by the water" or somthing I have to lug the light, do tests, reposition light, fine tune, then get a pose out of them and it kinda breaks the flow. Do you have this problem?

I don't mind the down-time with equipment on e-sessions, it's a good chance to chat. It definitely changes your workflow. Carrying the lights is a pain, but the actual "testing" goes pretty quick.

I think I need some go-to settings to work from to make the testing faster. Do lug a light around all day at a wedding or just for those awesome bridal party shots Ive seen from you?
