I finally got a chance to go on his website and do some screenshots. I made sure to remove the watermarks.
The “before” shot of the bride and groom is nice. The lighting is great. But when he removed the background and replaced it with a beach scene, it looks tacky.
I don’t know why he had to super-impose newborns into a flower. When he showed me this on his phone, I didn’t want to say anything.
I don’t get the blue smoke/clouds and lightning.
He says he’s pretty comfortable with Photoshop, but he should not put this on his portfolio. It just looks tacky in my opinion. He should stick to what he’s good at and what he went to school for….studio photography.
