|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Wedding photography is frightening in many respects. Whereas photography in general is something I don't rush and rather wait for the right light and the right situation, wedding photography has to be done quickly and efficiently in often bad lighting conditions and must be as perfect as possible. |
I used the 135mm lens for all the outdoor shots. I like the speed and the shallow depth of field and the clarity is very good.
Only registered TrekLens members may rate photo notes.
Although the lighting exposure etc are all good, I did think the image was too sharp.
I hope you don't mind, but I've done a workshop to see if the image was softened it would improve. I'll let you decide.
Yes, frightening, especially so in the days of film photography - "what if I did, or will do, something wrong and even one of the spools of film is spoiled?" Personally I do not think the image is too sharp and I prefer the less pinkish flesh tones to those of Ron's workshop. Interesting that she has a tattoo of herself on her left arm, beauty spot and all, and it adds further interest. The bokeh is very good but I do find the background slightly distracting. All in all a very good image, though.
une belle portrait de bonheur
Bom dia Roger,
I always liked your technical notes because they have an extremely useful educational role to who, like me, came to the Treksee to see, meditate, and improve their technique by the continued practice of submission to the critical reviews of the best experts from here.
The debate that this wedding photo is a fine example of what I say.
I'll take your version.
