As mentioned in my thread over in the Pub, my sister asked me to do some photos of her and her fiance for their save the date cards. I’m far from a seasoned portrait photographer, and after expressing this clearly, she still wanted me to give it a go. Here’s a couple of their favorites that I processed for them last night.
Feedback on processing extremely welcome btw!
Top pick, color:
Top pick, B&W (high key)
2nd pick, color (still may try to edit out that gray pipe over his shoulder):
More I look, more I like 3. The DOF from waist to face is perfect, the bokeh flowers enhance, against a further background that doesn’t destract. If I were the subjects, I’d be really happy with that one.
Agree on the smile, it was quite difficult to get a smile out of that wasn’t either forced or otherwise less than natural looking. That first photo was quite nearly the first photo taken that day, so it’s not like he was tired of smiling already. lol.
