Hi,

This is my first year trying to get into this business, and thus far I've done only pro bono work for my friends or friend's friends, trying to build up the portfolio this year. Look forward to all of your inputs and feedback!

Some engagement shots I did last weekend.

You seem to have a good eye. Watch for the moment, and keep an eye on your shutter speeds. A little bit of grain/noise at ISO1600 is better than a shot with motion blur at ISO500.

good advice, thank you! I was hoping to be able to capture the movement of the feet while the body/head would stay steady. almost had it, but not quite.

Yeah, you're well on your way and far ahead of the learning curve here. Nice work. I can't offer much more than what Tim said. ISO 1600 can be a shot saver for sure.

:lol: These are great for your first ones! I'm in the same boat as you are, just starting out on my own. I've been shooting weddings for a year, but for another photographer. I've done my fair share of pro-bono work early on, but don't let get outta hand. You gotta eat too!! Good shots!

I think you have a good eye, and you're ready for the formals. Just keep your cool and have fun (and don't get stressed if things don't go as planned) and you should be ok.

Forget eating, how about saving for the next 5D? =)

Fabulous, 1&2 are my favourites for the emotion though 4 is a tad dark for my taste (easily fixed). you have a great eye...well done and thanks for sharing.
