Tried some shots on the couch with my fiance. Had my umbrella but it malfunctioned and I didn't notice until after. Turns out all of my shots were well...terrible when it came to lighting. I was just about to trash them, but I figured I would try and see if I could salvage them somehow.

I would like to know what you think about this style of post processing, and what you would have done differently.

P.S. - I see that they are both OOF, but I would still like to know what you think of the processing/poses.

Thanks! :D

When Picasso showed his work, first he showed how classic he can paint then he went for cubism.
Images here, with being OOF, noisy, eccentric with composition, makes me to pass rather than think too much, unless I know you in a certain context that makes sense as to what I am looking.
So in short, I am not for this theme, but then that is only me and please don't think inferior about your work.

Yeah, I had a low shutter speed, and I was counting on the flash to stop the camera shake, but it didn't fire on some, resulting in them being OOF. That's where the noise comes from as well, since I had to drastically increase the exposure in post.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Yes, I understand that. These are headed to the bin. I just wanted some thoughts on the post processing.

I understand a "little soft" but there is a difference between a little soft and not in focus.

Were these shots originally shot in focus ?

No, I'm pretty sure they came out oof b/c of the camera shake.

A wise man gave me a very useful advise:
"When you have absolutely no clue as to how to improve an image, turn it B&W". So I surely agree with above suggestion.
Here is a quick go.
Do you think it is an improvement or salvage?

As far as processing goes, I don't think I like the B/W on that one.

I do like the pose.
How bout getting a tripod and doing a "do over"
She is your fiancé right ? so you should be able to photograph whenever you want I would think.
I think you would be surprised at how well they come out.
