From Saturday's wedding...
Looks pretty horrible IMO, sorry.
asking for opinions, no need to feel sorry.
However, usually with c&c you would actually give some feedback. So how about backing up 'horrible' with something useful....
in my opinion, no, that's not an acceptable use. but it wouldn't surprise me if the bride would like it. what does it look like as a b&w picture?
i think it would be better if it was a wider crop. because it's an awkward shot as it is. but i do really like the idea.
like it's THEIR day ONLY
well, she's the one paying me!
I'm trying to get something besides the blind hatred of selective color here...
It's a fairly busy shot, with the mothers of the bride and groom acting like paparazzi and all, so I was trying to find a way to isolate the bride and groom... because lets face it. When your wife walks out with the wedding dress on, everyone else just kind of fades into the background... So I was trying to evoke that feeling...
I was even considering more of a 'almost' black and white shot, with just a hint of color to bring them out...
(and yes, they asked me if I could do some selective color. I use it a lot for weddings. It fucking sells.)
thank you! Man, it's nice to actually get some feedback...
I pretty much held the shutter down when she came out, let me see if I have one that would work as a landscape... It would probably be really similar, but maybe it'll work better.
I'll also agree that the crop is awkward. There are too many distractions going on to make the SC useful.
I don't like it. The selective color just makes the picture look awkward to me. I think it'd be much stronger as a full B&W or full color image.
That eagle head podium thing in the background is super distracting... lol I feel that any second it's going to tear off the top of the groom's head and devour his soul.
As far as the purpose for a selective color shot... it works. But IMO, the shot is ruined by the two goofballs that popped into the middle of the frame.
this is what makes it awkward
exactly what i was picturing of what your vision was for the shot
its a fairly busy frame already. Eagle's head. Two douchebags with their cameras, and the laserbeam eye guy to the right.
we're all on the same page...
Is there any other way to minimize the awkwardness of the shot?
Doing something like chopping out the other people isn't really ethical, is it?
not sure if that second pic is a chop, but, if you could take his expression from the first pic and use it in the second, you might not have a winner, but something better than either of those two pics. his expression in the second is more like the "shit im about to get married i should run" type.
How about something like the bride and her ladies, with only the bride in color? Or the whole wedding party with just the b&g in color...
First image is blurry, you sure you want to use that?
Not feeling it
2nd image is better than the first... Not a fan of either though.
1- too blurry and the selective coloring looks awkward
I don't think there is anything wrong with cropping everyone else out.
nope dont like it. Sorry homie. It just makes it look odd. If anything i would soft focus the people away, and keep him reasonably sharp. and maybe clone that evil eyes guy completely out of the pic.
I think its better done with a shot of the first dance.
I like the idea a lot, but the composition is way off.
selective color is when you pick an object in the picture that is a certain color and you select that colored object and isolate it.
since your object(s) (the people) are multiple colors (including black and white (not even colors)), the technique isn't working here.
