    Nice one Giorgio! Nice tones to the image! Its good that they are all shot with the same clothing etc etc. I might consider adding some ‘detail shots; for variety. Things that are important to them i.e. her engagement ring……the shoes she was wearing at the shoot etc etc. I’m not are I understand the posing for the first image…top left? Are you telling a story of them ‘getting closer together as the four shots go on?’……Dave

      hi Dave ! The first shoot is top left. I was talking to them asking to make an “unnatural” pose to demonstrate how, at the end of the shooting, the mood and the feeling in pictures can change :).  I want to try with another composite with more detail and a better story :D! Thanks for your advise! ;)

      do you think that is easier to read this one?

      With regard to the other collage, it feels more intimate due to the closeness of the couple in each of the shots (posing is more intimate) and also they have a ‘darker feel’. I think they show more that the ‘couple are in love’ etc etc. TOP RIGHT image of that Group: Watch out for the ‘looking up the nose’ shot! She may not like that! BOTTOM LEFT: Detail shot! Nice touch but I would have made it about her ring…TOP LEFT: Very bright window sort of dominates the shot and my eye keeps going to it! May have taken a step or two to the right and then exposed for the highlights on his head to get that dramatic look you were after her. Nice job overall! Dave

    Look out for cropping at limbs/joints etc. Back up a little to avoid this? Dave

    Have her (or your helper!) sort out her hair just to give a more ‘polished/professional’ feel. Dave

    Overall I feel that the image choices (especially the bottom two) are more about him than her due to the pose choice i.e. him face onto me and her looking at home etc (great shots in their own right) So, I may look at what shots I have to get some more focus/balance in the story to include her.
