    That's a fun coincidence. Thanks!!
     
  4. I like the lighting on #1 , many of todays cameras blow the highlights in favour of the shadows , I need to learn to shoot manual in situations like this .
    #2 has a distracting shadow . Something I learned a while back when I was playing with wireless flash is that you can " make flash fall-off your friend" by moving the flash much closer to the subject you get the same light on the subject but have a much weaker shadow on the background due to flash fall-off . I know it's not easy at the time but I think it's something useful to remember [ that is , if you don't specifically want the shadow behind them ] .

    Actually the shadow is completely intentional. For me it was remembering to create the shadow. I think the shot is boring without the dark partner. Different tastes make it art:smile:

    thanks for the nice words on the first. It was shot in manual as was the other.
     
  6. That's about as high as we can reach , being able to create a picture we imagine . One day I'll get to the point where I can say " that's there because I wanted it there " :smile: .
    Do you have any more to share ?

    Some may not like the extremeness of this processing. I'm mixed myself but I know Cora (the Bride) will dig it based on what we did together for her E-session.
