Wedding Highlights

Since there was some confusion when I posted the link to a main feature for a wedding (my fault), I thought I'd post the highlights video as well so everyone can see the difference between the two.

I like the shot of the bridesmaids (?) where you left the bags colored but nothing else, that was pretty cool. I like the video.. great song

My suggestions is not with the video but the size of the player! If you could even double the size of what it is now would really help. What you have now is just very small. I'm using a 17" LCD at 1280x1024

Another suggestion for your site is the blue links on yellow background... may be too bright. Consider darkening the blue to more of a navy, I think it would look better.

Thanks for watching and thanks for the comments!

Color pass shots have been some of my favorite shots. I usually start all B&W with the one color (or two) passed through... then towards the end fade back to full color (if the shot is a slow shot and needs more punch).

Nice work Travis. I've been seeing more dutch work all over the industry and thought about experimenting with it as well. Your shot with the dress hanging was very nice. The angled shots blended well enough that nothing stood out.

Seems like the trick is framing a shot so that the angle captures the subject better than a leveled shot would. Is that your thought process when you pick a shot to angle?

Bingo. I experiment with dutch shots in lots of situations, but they do seem to be most useful and most visually-appealing when the composition of the shot fits with a dutch angle.
