    Since our wedding plans were for a small group of people, Louise's mum arranged a pre-wedding party for some of their extended family. Here's just a few photos.

    It was a bit of a warm up, I took quite a lot of photos wide open - just to see... I'll have a lot more room to work in come the day of the wedding.

    I think you needed to up the exposure by 0.3 in 2&3 to hide the noise a little or go B&W, not a fan of the flash?

    I don't mind using flash, but I didn't give it much thought I was going to play around with f1.2. I need the 5dm3 to make the noise go away ;) I hardly ever process using noise reduction.. to reduce noise that is.

    To be fair though, I think a flash would have been quite annoying for the guests :) it was pretty cramped and many shots were meant to be candids. Do you think so?

    If they were mine I would check the histograms and correct the clipping in some and maybe change the metering (spot) for a more consistent balance of exposure.

    Also get a less fuzzy lens:) or stop it down a lot.

    Yea I think I will stopping it down, but I'm concerned about running out of light so will have to do some homework on flash options. Next time I shoot it will be outside at night..

    The white balance was a bit of a pain moving from room to room with different lighting.

    Some nice shots, for me 3 and 4 are the pick of the bunch. Pity about the hand in number 2.

    Personally I always try to shoot over my shoulder and bounce off a wall to stop this. I also generally shoot 2nd curtain, low shutter speed, low iso to keep the look of flash to a minimum.

    5dm3 :devil:
