Colour and sepia

If the bride and groom sit down then if there is any difference in height then you don't see them in sitting. Similarly with this pose, you can't tell who is taller. Apart from height differences it is also useful to use other poses just to get different expressions.

On the left is the usual colour version. On the right I have converted to sepia. It takes the emphasis off the flowers and onto the faces as the bright red flowers and green leaves dominate this version. In sepia we are not distracted by colour. The other advantage of sepia is that it makes the skin look like it is tanned. if I had made the photo darker or increased the contrast then the tan effect would have increased.

Happy snapping
