That house and the tree one aren't so traditional and I LOVE those! The rest are lovely too. Nice job, Cindy.

Very nice work. I have a engagement shoot (reshoot) coming up. They said they did not like their photos from the first set. I am thinking...you hired me because I take that kind of photo...so I am at a loss, sort of.

Anyway, these are very nice. Great exposure and sharpness.

Cindy,
Can anything you do be considered traditional?? LOL.
As always your work rocks.
I have a session coming up at the arboretum as well. Trying to talk them into Flippen park instead.
Never shot at either place but Dwayne Lee tells me he LOVES working at Flippen.

One suggestion.
Turn down the flash just a tad.
Too much flash is subduing the mood.
Think about applying a vignette here and there.

This is my favorite shot.

Thanks all!

Kelly, good luck on your reshoot. Yeah, it's crazy huh? They hire someone known for one style, and then want another. I guess I'm no good at traditional, because, well, I just don't like it so much. I'm not much for rules, and trad style has soooo many of them.

Mark, thank so much. And also for the edit. I'm always afraid to vingnette, because I'm afraid I'll overdo it. I'll try it more. I'll try also to back off the light a bit more. I gotta learn to embrase a little shadow now and then. Also, even though Flippen is really nice, it's in the middle of a neighborhood, surrounded by houses and cars. There isn't a whole lot of option there. I like the Arb, because it's got soooooo many totally different looks. You have ponds, the lake, sculpture, flowers, and great architecture. Both are good though. I look forward to seeing the photos!

Dratom,
Yeah, can you believe it? Spring Break AND Dallas Blooms. I've spent half my editing time, just plucking people out of the backgrounds.

I can believe that. Did you get there early enough to park there? Had a friend shoot a bridal there and the bride had to park off site and ride a bus in..... in her wedding dress. Friend drove her to her car after the shoot. I couldn't imagine having to carry all the gear on a bus!

I really like these especially the 1st and last. They just pop off the page. Really nice.
