    i love black and white! its the easy way to fix an image like this and its very forgiving in this situation too i think. i also cropped it so that they are centered and so the their feet are totally gone because in the "before pic" their feet were not all the way in the pic and i typically dont like to see images with partial limbs ect. right morgan?:) oh! also, its important to crop in the correct aspect ratio too, you cant just crop anyway you want and expect the print to look nice...its technical stuff that if you dont know will cause distorted images.

    you did a great job on this pic morgan!

    ummm, i think his eyes are shut in this pic!

    photoshop tip...if you are going to alter images, its important to by a good callibrator so that you can see what the image REALLY looks like before you alter it. also, just slapping any ol black and white on doesnt always make a pretty image, i had to adjust things so that the desity is nice and so on.

    I just bought Adobe Lightroom and I think Shelley's photo may be the perfect first time project with my new software. i don't know if I can do any better than what you processed Morgan. But I'm going to give it a shot after work if that's alright. I may try taking out the bluish tone in P.P's photo too. I need all the practice I can get.

    That photo of Tammy's looks tricky but soooo cute! The B&W version looks really good!

            LOL. I can't wait to start playing too. My parent's friend is a photog/graphic designer. He has all kinds of programs which he said he will be bringing to my house to install on my computer. He said he will give me some mini lessons too. I cant wait to start trying it out and sharing the progression with you girls.

              If you're at all worried about posting pro photos from your wedding on here, I'd also be a bit concerned about saying something like this. Microsoft and Adobe have much better Lawyers than most Photographers do.

              Regarding posting your pro photos here, if you received a CD with the digital images on it along with a release, it should be just fine. If the Photographer is willing to let you take a CD and get whatever prints you want made at Walgreens, he's not going to be upset about you posting low res photos on a forum. Or at least he/she shouldn't be. And if they gave you the rights to them, you can do whatever you want as long as you're not profiting from them.

                Only spent a minute or two on each of these, but if I tried to tell you everything that I did, it would take longer than it did just to do the editing.

                I will say one thing, the common thing here is that nobody is using their flash. Any time the background is brighter than the subject, you should always have your flash on. Even some of the little automatic cameras will meter the scene pretty well, expose for the background and add flash for the subject.

                Photoshop tip - try using the Shadow/Highlight Tool, it helps a lot for toning down real bright areas and/or lightening dark areas.

                For the blue chairs in the last photo, use the Saturation tool, select the blue channel, and turn the saturation all the way down. That will get rid of all of the blue in the photo.
