Okay, so just going through what I have here on my laptop, help me yay or nay these. If an image wouldn't pass, I don't want it in there.

Thanks! :D

There are a couple in there of the same people because I don't know if either would fly.

Oh, and a question. Can you use detail shots for the wedding portion? Or do they have to be people?

Ooh good question Tracy, I too was wondering about that.

Hi Tracy,

I am not qualified to give comments, but I like image 3, 8, 11, 12, 17, and 25.

It also looks like you repeated people in more than 1 image. I don't think you can repeat clients or settings.

Thanks, John! I did mention in my first post that I know I repeated in some. I did that because I am unsure if either will fly, but put two up just in case one would, I could choose it. ;)

Sorry about that. My Bad. I just went to the images. You have a lot of nice work there.

Hi Tracy, here are the images I like: 12, 108, 133, amber0006, e2143, f6279e, fisher0016-2, vanderveld0007, wimg13591, wimg6214, webalyssa0012e.

The rules say client images, so I don't think that precludes detail images at the wedding. You just have to make sure that the percentages of images match what you said in the application. So if you said 50% weddings, then you have to have 10 wedding images.

Hi again Tracy!

#1 - No lighting direction; flat lighting, squinty eyes.

#4 - Background is too bright.

#8 - No detail in dark areas. It appears as if her right arm is floating in space.

#12 - Flat lighting.

#13 - Netting in face, no catchlights.

#16 - Bounce flash, too close to subjects? No catchlights, raccoon eyes.

#17 - No detail in blacks...

Has anyone ever used detail shots for weddings?

Thanks guys. :) So Art, are those the ones you'd cut? Some of your CC is the outcome of PPing, so I could easily redo those if ya think I should. Like the floating arm. :p The post processing brought the dark colors way down, so the original still has more than enough detail. Just rework it? And the one with the bright background was also made brighter in PPing, so if reworking would work, I could do that.

Well, I've always been taught to "shoot into the dark" rather than the light, in that, the background shouldn't be the brightest part of an image.
