I had my first PAID wedding shoot a few months back. It was actually the reason why I got the Pentax in the first place. I got the camera 3 days before the wedding day. I wish I didnt have to cut it so close! Thoughts?















...and lastly...the INFAMOUS orange WB rears its head. :lol:

Congratulations on a paid photography assignment, I would not have near the courage! My honest thoughts would be to suggest a little pping in the first shot to remove the telephone wires. My favorite pick would be the young man with the round sunglasses. Finally, I don't know that you can blame WB on the camera, unless you set a custom white balance for that shot. Candlelight is well outside the auto white balance range on the K100 or K10.

Thanks NonEntity. I shoulda said that some of those pictures are unedited files, like that first one. Man, if someone charged me money for pictures with phone poles in em?! LOL!

I didnt use RAW or flash on that candlelight shot. Unfortunately, it was OJT with the cam that day. I figure I shoulda used RAW and cooled it down or did what I did with the boy in the hat and use -2 stop flash comp to balance it a bit more.

The reason why you dont see any of the actual ceremony shots is because it was in a hotel hall under fluorescent lighting and I was stuck between letting it go natural (minus cast) or use the onboard flash and risk everything being flatly lit. Siiigh, shoulda gone with flash.

Some look a little grainy, could be the upload quality or your ISO was a little high. I'd limit the ISO to 400 if at all possible since most people want to enlarge their wedding shots.
