Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some advice on taking important group photos at my own civil wedding. The group will probably consist 4-6 or 6-8 people on several shots and combinations on an external staircase.
I've got an intermediate camera and a tele lens. It's an 18-270mm 1:3.5-6.3 lens. The tripod reaches well over eye height, but I think my lens won't suffice.

Depending on the light conditions and group line-up, I will need to chose these of course. But what I really want to ensure is f 3.5. to f.40.

Any recommendations for settings?

I see you have a 'get out clause' re stating why submissions are declined. This is a VERY POOR show for a group that 'prides itself' on being the best.

Let us see if you can tell me why this  Reflecting Reflections by Earth-Hart  was declined especially when it has received a fine critique from NatGeo+. So, you're saying that you are far better than the National Geographic photographer admin.

In actual fact, looking through your galleries, I can see far worse images than this, and some better ones too. Are you all two faced or what?

its too difficul to understand why? because quality is ... hmmm not good enough :)
Earth-Hart Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
Then you don't know much about working with reflections. "Not good enough" does not help me progress. How is it not good enough, remembering it's a photo of two glass doors, one behind the other in a pub, and the reflection they create. 

What do you expect me to have done, ask the Landlord to wash his doors. You're not in the real world, and with most of your work 'posed' let's say managed, you're not aware of the trials one has to face out there.

Explain why it was declined & how could I improve. If you can't do that you're not much of an admin.

bla bla bla... you can talk about glass or about something else, but its stilll not good photo.... for me its bad because:
- wb is horrible yellow (wrong)
- composition? whats composition? here are so much subjects, and noone is important and noone is in right place.
ok keep practising but... this is not good.
p.s. i didnt vote for this photo, but for me...

Hi, is this group still active or dead? I've submitted twice in the past two months and both submissions expired!
