Goes unpunished. :)

So my friends aske me to take some pictures of them for some Christmas cards at a park nearby yesterday. Little did I know that they had changes of clothes, different scenes at the park, their dog....:eek:

Here's one of my favorites:

There's still a little back-lighting on the left-hand side of his head... looks better to me, anyway. But hey, what do I know?

You have a good eye, that's what you know. :)

Not my normal gig - portraits - so I was pretty happy.

And I never mind critiques. Only way to improve. ;)

Yeah, you'd probably get killed for saying that out loud... :p

I like the exposure too, nice detail in the blacks of her sweater and his uniform. Did you use any fill lighting or a reflector?

Fill flash (580 EX).

Naw - he worked for me this summer and knows I'd attack him if I could. We joke about it all the time. We've become real good friends, and his girlfriend is a hoot. :)

Women has their own dress code, I think we are not to question it....

Anyway, at first glance, it really looks like they are in the park (pardon my armeteur skills). and they look really cute together.

Looks very nice!

What equipment + settings did you use for this shot?

Mine never come out so clear. Looks really sharp, good job!

(I like the current crop, too. The space up top could be used for some festive text or something for the card, after a little blurring and masking)
