[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My best friend Amber on her wedding day.

I used a center spot soft focus filter and window lighting. Sorry, I cant remember the shutter speed and f/stop. :-( So many times I have the camera set to its auto functions, I dont always pay attention to the settings. Thats why I'm finding TL to be of such a benefit, it makes me more aware of the technical.

It´s a very nice detail, I like it.

Hello again Sophia,
I really like this picture. It has a nice soft touch to it and is beautiful. I only think it would look better in a larger form and maybe with a frame. Awesome job though!
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Sophia
A nice, simple, sensual shot - well metered and good use of the soft focus.
Well done

This photo surprised me, I have a daughter named Amber, much younger than you friend, but this could be the back of her. I really like how you composed this shot, the soft lighting and focus really lend to the intimacy that this kind of shots requires. I like the ribbon touch of the flower choker, the little bit of twists of hair, it almost makes her look younger. Beautifully composed and shot. TFS, a new favorite of mine,

Very lovely delicate shot.

Hello Sophia!
So delicate but strong passion of feeling on this beautiful image. I like it a lot!

Hi Sophie!
I like the soft take in this shot. Very artistic framing/cropping and POV. The lighting is fine. TFS
Freddie :)

I love the use of the center spot soft focus here, it literally brings out the softness of Amber's skin and the baby hairs going down the back of her neck. This is such a unique, classy, and romantic wedding shot. The dark background makes her pop out subtley (sp?) and the composition is very strong with a balance between the bottom of her head and her shoulder blade. Nothing in the shot is directly in the center too, which is great. Really beautiful lighting (is this natural lighting?) used. I only wish the photo was posted larger. TFS!
