The last time I spent any "quality time" w/ my camera was back on June 19th when I got the chance to do these pictures of a young couple I know. Some of you guys may remember I did a photo shoot with these two back when they were in high school. She's in college now and he's heading to the army any day now (he actually had already left for basic training, had an accident that needed surgery and came home but will soon be going back).
ANYWAY ... these two have grown up right in front of me and I love them both very much. However, I really botched this shoot. I don't know if it was b/c my mind was on Logan (who was running late returning from a camp field trip) or just all the stress from my day job, but I rushed through this shoot and it shows.
These guys don't care - they just wanted a few pics together before he has to go back for round 2 of basic training. So there was no pressure or anything from them. I am not sure what happened. I have finger/hand/etc chops all over the place and some other basic composition issues, but I would still really love your thoughts on these.
Once he finishes basic training and AIT and gets assigned an official duty station, they are talking wedding bells and have asked me to eventually do engagement photos. I sure want to do a better job the next time around, so your opinions mean a lot to me.
I know there are a lot, so don't feel the need to comment on them all - just pick a couple and let me know what you think
