great shots. You shot the whole wedding with the 85?
No flash?
I see you like to use the filter glow and suttle darkening of edges.

You basically shoot the way I like to.
It was nice you had lot's of light for the majority of it.

I am not a canon shooter but that made me very jealous (I know it is the photographer and not the equipment ) Was there much PP involved? I loved the way you were able to isolate the bride and or groom from the rest of the scene.The site worked fantastically as well. One final question! What is the music?

The most of them were shot with 5D+85/1.2L , no flash,wide open, ISO from 400-1600, and at the 1/60-1/200sec some where, @ ISO1600 f/1.2 1/60sec, any location will be BRIGHT, and have plenty of lights

And others were shot with 24-70/2.8L with flash , also 70-200/2.8L IS on 1D Mark II N with no flash.

Thanks

I am thinking to get Nikon gears too....

I process my images as less as possible during the PP, all basic prosesses to make the images look better.

The music is Besame Mucho----by Andrea Bocelli

Thanks

Yes, great job Peter. I'm sure the B&G (will) love it. Really nice photos and a nice presentation. The only thing for me would be volume and pic controls on the slideshow itself. What program did you use to create it?

thanks for the info..
I shoot PJ style too.

I use my 85 1.4 a lot for weddings, but I can't use it the way I want to with my KM 7D because of the stinking 1.5x lens factor. I do use it with my film cameras. I have to use my 50mm 1.4 then becomes a 75mm but it is still not the same.

I am holding out for a while longer to see what sony comes out with.. rumor has it they may come out with a FF sensor.

If they don't I will be adding a canon, 5d or next version and a 1.2f 85mm to my existing system.

The ShowitWeb was used for the slideshow.

Yes, I should put the Volume and Images controls etc. there...

Thanks

I see your situation, the Canon 85/1.2L and 5D or other FF like 1Ds Mark II work very well togather, even with the 1,3crop body like 1D Mark II N, when using with the 85/1.2L is not that good in my openion, the 85/1.2L is make for FF, just like your 85/1.4 is made for FF film body too....

And 50/1.4 with Nikon digital body work togather pretty good, a friend of mone use D200 with 50.1,4 wide open all the time, and the results are great.

Good luck.

I've been racking my remaining brain cell for some kind of constructive criticism for you, and all I can think of is that the vast majority of the photos have a soft and almost high-tone character to them. There is no doubt that you have done this very well, but perhaps a bit more variety in post processing might help. Maybe throw in a few more black and whites?

You know, just to mix it up a bit.

How has your 5d been with dust, viewfinder etc?

Many have said it's a real problem, others say no.

I change lenses on my KM 7d all the time, I use mostly prime lenses and in 2 years I have only cleaned the sensor with the copper hill method once, but I do blow it out occasionally.

I really need to go to FF for digital..

I use fuji neopan 1600 a lot with my film cameras, @1000-1250 iso and love the results, yeah a bit grainy, but i like it.
my customers like it too.

They were very fortunate to have you as their wedding photographer. You did a wonderful job.

What is the name of the song playing in the background? Also, what program did you use for your slide show...if you don't mind saying?

All my digi cameras have dust in the viewfinder, the 5D ? yes....and for the sensor dust it's not a big deal to me b/c i shoot wide open of all my lens most the time, i can't notice the dust in the images, but i do clean my sensor often...

Dust ? no problem.....

The song is The music is Besame Mucho----by Andrea Bocelli

And ShowitWeb was used for the slideshow, there are tow versions of the program, i bought the $99 one, good enough for me, the showitweb 2 costs $199 and has more controls for the slideshow...

Thanks

great stuff, really shows what a bit of imagination, good photography skills & PP knowledge can do. you have a whole wedding that many so called wedding photographers might take years to produce in a portfolio. How many weddings have you done ?

Not one clearly sharp image, I stopped viewing after about 10 images

I agree that thats what your customer wants but the blown Hi-lites and not enough detail, I really don't understand the hate for a little flash to enhance an Image to get that sharp detail for the amount of money you paid on the glass is a waste....to me.Please don't take this as an attack it is just my personal Op
