    Hope you don't mind the critique of another newbie...

    1) A few of your pics could have been nicer with a fill in flash... A bit underexposed. (eg P1040660, b&w pic)

    2) The PS boke is a little tad overkill on "Wedding Couple". Correct me if this wasn't PSed...

    3) Good candid shot minus the blob of hair in "P1040594".

    4) "Another pic of the bride" is the best! You've captured a very nice angle of the bride!

    2cts... I'm still learning too...

    Snap on!

    I agree on the wedding couple picture.. I suppose u selected the couple and inversed it, selected the background and gaussian blurred it.
    if you take a closer look, the bride is "floating".. her feet is sharp, but but the stairs she's standing on isn't.. my first impression was that they were pasted on.. perhaps if you crop away at least the groom's feet... and bits of the side.. coz the building is kinda fighting for attenting with the groom... haha if can PS away the pair of legs will be even better...

    heh anyway nice photos.. wish i had some wedding to shoot..

    hmm this is my try:

    Haha.. Good work on the pic... It's a lot more belivable now. (You missed a spot from PSing off the legs though... )

    Someone else ever did a PS boke to a car before too and did the same mistake of bluring the ground below the car. So the whole picture looked like as if the car was floating too...

    Cheers!

    Zoom it. and stay at f2.8 so that the bokeh is nice at the background.

    Hi Warder,

    Good effort.

    Remember to take note of the background when taking shots of couples.

    As the Pana is a live EVF, you should be able to see exactly how the shot is going to turn out already e.g the exposure and the depth of field.

    So take more time to mentally compose a shot and then look thru the viewfinder and see that it is as you have planned mentally then shoot.

    *whisper*:... josh... 50mm and 85mm f1.4.....shoot at f2.0... *rhair78 runs and hide in a corner*

    bokeh = background of shot

    shallow depth of field = sharp subject, blurred and soft background
    deep depth of field = sharp subject, less blurred and less soft background.

    try shooting a subject with a another subject a little distance away in good lighting situation like bright sunlight. first in f2.8, and another in f8

    you can clearly see the difference in the shots of the 2 subjects.

    As simple as. Bokeh = BLUR Back Ground. DOF - just a thin depth which after the dept its all blur.

    Ricky- i know... u pass me ur 50mm 1.4 lor.

    Just to add an example.
    Shots taken handheld at night lar.. pardon the lousy quality.. but for illustration purpose only.
