I had to use the dodge tool on him in every photo and still wan't enough sometimes

Photographing mixed race groups totally makes the case for sensors with wide dynamic range.

Getting a well-balanced group shot with somebody in it who is right at the darkest end of ebony and somebody else in it who is a vampire shade of bleached out ivory is a real challenge ... and one I often face just to take a routine family snap.

By the way ... I think this is a fine set of wedding pictures. You seem to have caught the mood really well ... in some classy images. I'd imagine the couple are delighted. They should be!

Fantastic work. Better than mine, and I've got 11 weddings under my belt. Two things, on #2 the big guys tux looks out of place as his arms were outstretched, and in the one where the flowers ߒ are being waved, one poor guy's face is obscured. Well done.

Dodging and burning work well in some contexts but not in all.

Here are two options I use:

1. I use capture one, which has excellent shadow and highlight recovery. Adjusting exposure and recovery sliders as needed works quite well and allows far more recovery than I was able to get with Adobe products. It also allows camera profiles, including film extra shadow which also help and, since it's a RAW processor, you get the most out of what is there.

2. If this isn't enough, I will develop one image for the dark areas, adjusting it so they are perfect, and process that into PS. I will do another version which is perfect for the rest of the image. I place both images as layers in PS and use a feathered brush with low opacity to paint white on a black mask to "reveal" the parts of the image I want.

Capture one has a free trial so you can try it out. I think it is 30 days.

Great job on the images.

All the black n whites have their originals in color and were included on the disc. I didn't realize I posted more BW than color images.

I like the monochrome images. Sure, they lack colour but they are right up there on the happiness count.

These were taken by my daughter. She's pregnant and we just bought her a Canon SL1 so she would have one when the baby arrives. While I was taken pics of the groomsmen she took some the bridesmaids. Luckily she did because it started to rain and I never was able to get to the girls. It wasn't real orginized
