I totally agree with you Penny. I don't know why I didn't think about having a wider aperture until after the shoot. I have a recent photo, "nerdy Ashley", that shows what you suggest. I won't be making the same mistake twice. =)

Things I'm learning:  try to eliminate distractions in the background like the light pole and bench and change your depth of field to blur out the background.  Your couple looks completely separate from the scene behind them.  If fact, the scene almost looks fake because it is in sharp focus but so distant from the main subject.  Hope that helps give you some new ideas to try. 

Deal Ending Soon!
