About the Image(s)

Recent wedding celebration. The lighting was poor and I attempted to get good photos with my regular camera but the ones with the Samsung phone turned out best. I removed a lot of annoying furniture but otherwise about the regular image. 1/25; f/1.8; iso 640. I didn't realize that the phone recorded this information until I brought it up in PS.

A good composition, position of the 3 couples though a bit dark with the light in the background. A fill in flash might of helped or open up the shadows on the participants. I used the radial filter in LR. in my example.   Posted: 11/08/2023 21:37:01

The phone's camera seem to do wonders these days. Not at all like trying to make a 16x20 print with one a few years ago. That is tough lighting. When I had Photoshop, there was a Highlight and Shadow tool that might have brightened the dancers and toned down the light areas. You might have waited until they were doing a waltz to try to stop the blur. I might have just gone with two couples. While I am at it, how about getting on the level with the dancers?

It looks like "the moment of the action". I also use phone cameras for snapshot and street photos. I think you raised up your hand holding the phone during taking the shots. Nice!   Posted: 11/10/2023 08:34:29

This tells a good story. Three couples are well placed in the frame. The almost silhouette works in this case. I find the mirror on the right to be distracting.   Posted: 11/12/2023 10:29:35

I like this. Definitely gives a feel to the event. I like them silhouetted rather than lightened. I would take out the bright lights on the right. I know it was a mirror, but they draw the eye away from your dancers.   Posted: 11/13/2023 13:02:09

I've found that my iphone does very well indoors with lower light. Tend to use that rather than my panasonic in those situations. I like the silhouettes. It makes it dramatic. The lights on the right are a bit distracting.   Posted: 11/16/2023 16:39:51
