You have some fantastic images there. Really pro quality work. Question:

Do you have your images posted anywhere where I could download them to see the exif info? I'm always trying to improve my own work and I find it extremely helpful to see the exif info from great photographs to help me gain some insight on aperture selection and focal length.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi there! I strip out all the exif info when I save for web. Though if you ask me about something specific in a personal message, I wouldn't hesitate to give a hint  ;)

yeah, you can deffo tell the difference between the 35mm and the 50mm now. I shoot mainly with my 50 and the compositions are a lot tighter like yours above. I'm getting the 35mm...

We (me and my wife) shoot close to the subjects because of the background that's too `busy` in the place we live in, which is the fastest shrinking city in the world. We made an attempt to go wider recently with 50L (I mean picture framing here), so I'll upload a shot or two next week.

My advice would be to make few steps backwards if you want a wider shot. Leave the framing adjustable by you, not by the lens. And think about new purchase only if you need compression or picture quality of a specific lens  ;)

Though if your aim is event photography, 35L is fabulous there  :)

Really nice.

I did not like the ring photo.  To me there is not enough in focus, kind of made my eyes hurt.  A friend of mine does weddings and he shoots the ring photo with his iPhone.  Sounds funny but the much smaller sensor means a much bigger DOF.

I have shot a few weddings as 2nd photographer, and I always concentrate on the groom and groomsmen.  Probably because they are considered 2nd to the bride...   But the bride is also the one picking photos and she always chooses some of my groom picks.

Love the photos. Which lens did you use for most of these?
I use fixes  :) You have them in your signature  ;)
Exception is 17-40 that was used for the very first shot (it was flipped).
  Privet! I believe "fixes" is not a common term outside of the former USSR. They are usually called "primes".  Beautiful work, by the way. Cheers.

Nice shots.  The WB seems a bit off in some though.  Lots of blue and pinky colored wedding dress. Maybe that's what you wanted I don't know.

Thank you for the feedback. It's our way to differentiate ourselves. Colors should be "clean" and complementary to each other in the shot. Something you can read about in color theory books.

I'm relatively new to full frame having shot for the last few years on a crop sensor so focal lengths of lenses need getting used to all over again. I've only shot one wedding so far with my 5Diii/5Dii pairing and it was mainly with my 50. I used to shoot with 7D/60D and use a 28mm so the 35mm would have a similar feel on a full frame yet I could get a slightly shallower DOF I suspect? My next wedding isn't til next month so I have a little time to save up for the 35mm sigma art. thanks for making my decision an easy one!

There's one thing I have noticed many photographers misunderstand. No matter what lens they use, framing remains the same. This leads to unpleasing results in wide-angle close-up portraits and just doesn't make any difference overall. I suffered myself, so I want others to be aware  ;)

Marvellous shots and most are very pleasing to the eye.  The DoF is odd in some but you explained your view thereon.  Textbook-like.  Congratulations!
