Yep - I much prefer with the black border. I will look at removing the getting-ready images. Thanks.

Jo, I think most can stay, you're right , that is part of the story.
I would only remove the second one where she is assisting with the shoes. The one where you can see the bottom (of the shoe).


Canon 50D (Thanks Mrs. Clause)/Canon XT/Sigma 50-150mm/Sigma 105mm Macro/Sigma 10-20mm UWA/Sigma 18-200/Canon nifty fifty/Lots of other goodies.

ok - thank you. This is the feedback I need. I like the varying opinions. If something is niggling me and someone mentions it on here then I KNOW it's an issue. Cheers!

I also think having the two of the putting on shoes are kind of redundant.
I would probably pick one over the other.

To be honest if you've only got 26 pages i would probably drop both as the shoe shot a little later is a very nice shot and does the job of recording what they looked like.

The other two i think would look better much smaller and less prominant. IMO you have a lot of pages covering getting ready... I find most couples (in the UK) love to see the pictures of getting ready but rarely want them in there books... they are happy with just a few images of that maybe covering a two page spread or so.

Does it flow? I really want to get it down to 20 pages (keep costs down as I am printing a "sample" album). What else should I remove? I will take out, so far:

*shoe shots
*chest shot

Have the couple seen the images yet?

Have they given you a list of must have images to use in thier book or are you putting the book together blind at this stage and then showing them as a proof before you get printed?

This will be my sample book - a chance to view the companies product before I offer it in package. It is not a customer order, nor included in their package.

Stop. I have to ask you a question first. You're processing these first in LR 2 and THEN processing them in Aperture 2 !?? If so, why? Just very curious as this would be helpful to me.

As to your album, try not to make it too small if it's only a sample, because then that's the size the rest of your clients will want. You sell what you show. Large albums = Larger sales... Just a thought. ;)


5D3 | 16-35L | 45 TS-E | 50L | 85L | 100L | 135L | 24-70L | 70-200 II L | 580s | Zero, TT & Crumplers | and an X100! :D
