    I was a guest, but wanted to practice shooting a wedding. I asked the pro photographer to tag along during the photoshoot as well. Overall, I covered the ceremony, the photoshoot, and the reception/dance. I'm a bit slow with the photo editing right now, so I'll post more pics once I get around to editing them.

    Here are some from before the ceremony:

    I like the 2nd pic. Very funny. :biggrin:
  5. Very nice work. The only thing that could have been better in the shoe shot would have been their legs all crossed the same way... Great idea though.

    #2 is definitely a winner!!!

    Thanks guys! #2 is one of my favs as well. Too bad it was posed, so it's not "real" photojournalistic, but I guess the trick is to make it look like it's NOT posed.

    nice..my fave is #2 even though it wasnt natural it still looks natural. my photojournalism teacher says you never tell anyone when you pose a "natural" shot. otherwise its not photojournalism...he was a newspaper photographer for like 15 years and he wasnt allowed to pose at all. he also likes the challenge of creating good pictures without posing. so anyway, good job!:smile:

  10. Keep in mind - the only reason we know that this photo was posed is because you told us... :biggrin:

    Okay you guys are probably sick of all my photos, so I'll just put one more up and a link to the gallery. Enjoy!

  15. Very nice shots and I especially the this last B&W post. Great tonal range.

    Thanks Gord! I blended two exposures of the same RAW to make that image. That way, I could darken more of the background and retain all the detail from the wedding dress while properly exposing the subjects.
  17. Some very very nice photos in that collection!

  19. Taylor,

    I really like your B&W stuff. Really looks good and tells a story!

    Keep up the good work, my wife and I are just now getting paid for our first official wedding job, so I guess we are professionals? :rolleyes:
