    Hi Falxy,

    Thank you for your comments. I totally get some of your concerns. Well noted.

    Hi Federico,

    Thanks mate. I agree education is a must, and it was indeed communicated to her prior to the shoot. Expectations were set… Don’t know what happened post that. Don’t care any more though.

    I will be hanging around and probably be more active.

    Stay safe my friend.

    Hi everyone,

    I know this might be too late. Almost a year now since my post. I got so tied up in work and a few things at home that I never got to respond and thank you all for the awesome suggestions.

    By the way, the bride responded back later last year. She wanted 200+ photos from a two hour shoot, I delivered 38 photos.The entire bridal shoot…[Read more]

  • That is so true. I know weddings are not easy but I find them a lot of fun and interesting. Get to know a lot of cultures, people and lifestyles.

  • That looks awesome! Congratulations!

    Thank you everyone.

    Made the suggested adjustments. Got rid of the cat as well. Looks  better IMO

    Hi Lenny,

    Lol. I guess I will be forced to become one working with these kinda clients. The entire shoot is of similar / better composition, expressions and some beautiful locations. In fact we were so stoked when we delivered the photos.

    I have realized that some brides who are snobs, with tons of money, or not feeling good on shoot days, are…[Read more]

    Hi Frank. Thank you for the kind words. I realized early into the photography carrier that photos that show emotion worked way better than technically good photos. Thats why you must love your parents photo.

    I did not lighten the trees as they were distracting a bit. But I guess it will work both ways. In the past 35 weddings we did this season,…[Read more]

    Thanks Jansenka,

    I shot the image wide to get the vines and some of the environment in the shot. Can you please let me know about the WB? Maybe a bit warmer? I tried playing with that but kept coming back to this.

    The reason why I posted this for a critique was that this image was a part of a day long shoot and ended up getting me a lot of…[Read more]

    Hi guys,

    This photo was shot using a 36″ softbox for a bridal shoot. Any suggestions welcome. I would love to hear how can I improve this further during the shoot or at edit.

    I did not color grade it according to the current wedding trends (crush blacks and whites) as I try keep my photos natural and vibrant and get the exposure right in…[Read more]

  • Hi Graham,

    I agree now that you mentioned it. I would crop it tighter. Thanks!

  • Hi Tom,

    Thanks. And noted. I guess I got too involved in getting the distortion and technicalities right, that I forgot about other things to improve. Notes…. gotta make notes. 🙂

  • Hi Dorothy,

    This was for a property owner and although they did not specifically mention any rules, I just thought that a listing on AirBnb should be true to the actual look. Does it help to edit out stuff in this situation?

  • Hi Steve,

    Well noted. I will crop it. And you are right. This was a challenge. I got a lot right but there are a few things I got to improve after my post.

  • Hi Lenny,

    This was done for a property owner. I just wanted ideas to improve on this, and I have been given a lot of great ideas here since my post. Thank you all

  • Hi Federico,

    Thats exactly what I intended to do. But the cottage owner totally disliked that and showed me a couple of million dollar houses he got shot earlier. They were all desaturated, very warm, and totally lit up. Then I had to go this route. My first edit was a dimly lit, cosy look.

  • Thank you.

    Stepping to the right makes sense. There was actually a dinner table and this is how far right I could go. But I should have pulled the blinds since the outside view was good.

  • Hi everyone,

    New member here. Wanted your opinions on the attached photos. Its a real estate shot using 5 brackets. Shot on a Fuji XT-3 using a XF 10-24 lens. The cottage was really small so had to use the lens at 10mm. Room was only lit with little light from the windows and the two lamps seen in the photo. Processed in LR and PS.

    Thank you in…[Read more]
