It’s been a while since I posted some of my own photography on the site, so I thought I’d just do a quick post to show some wedding pics I took recently in Liverpool. I obviously – and thankfully! – wasn’t the ‘proper’ photographer for the day at all, but it was still a good chance to have a go, without the added pressure of actually being asked to do so.
I like quite a few of my shots, and the ones I’ll post below are some of my faves. They’ve all been edited in photoshop CS5 to boost the contrast using ‘Curves’, and I’ve added a vignette to some, using this great quick video tutorial. In the last photo, I also used Photoshop’s brilliant new feature, ‘Content Aware Fill‘, to remove some distracting candlesticks in the background. I’m really, really new to photo editing, and I must say I’m kind of enjoying it!
It’s my first little dabble at anything even approaching ‘wedding photography’, and I’ve got a long way to go, but I’m pretty happy with my first attempt, I think I’ve got some alright shots. Boy, the pressure on a proper ‘professional’ wedding photographer, though – not sure I’d want that kind of responsibility, even if they do get paid as well as they do!
