Re: Senior Portrait

Wow. Now I'm afraid to upload what I took (giggles). I photographed my daughter for her senior portraits, I have about 70 pictures and she wants more done when we go to Hawaii.

I'll have to post of few to see what ya'll think...(nervous).

Re: Senior Portrait

Hi Jane,
Nothing to be afraid of when taking Senior portraits. I love using family to test out new techniques. Look at the bright side, your going to Hawaii! Now if that's not the perfect back drop for Senior Portraits then I don't know what to tell you..HAHA..
I would love to see what you've done with your shots.
Remember have fun.

Re: Senior Portrait

Sorry, i had to shrink the images to fit. The quality is off a bit.

Re: Senior Portrait

I can see you have talent and a knack for posing your subject. However, being somewhat of an old-fashioned person and a bit of old fogy, I'm having a bit of a problem with the current fashion in post processing, which you did quite well by the way. Mind you, this is no reflection on your work, just my $.02 worth.

That said, here is a hearty welcome to RTP. Let's see more of your work.

Janet

Re: Senior Portrait

Hi, I'm Sam and I'm new here.

There. That's out of the way.

Drebone88, the post processing is excellent. I am trying to learn techniques just like that, but not having much luck. I know I could take good shots and make them great.

Very nice work. Keep it up.


S

Re: Senior Portrait

Hi all,
Thanks for the kind words regarding my work. It's always a work in progress and always looking to learn new things.

Sam: Do a search on youtube for OneLight workshops. This guy is amazing! The images he produces with one flash is just unreal. I've studied this technique for about a few months now and I love it. I use a 580exII shooting through a white umbrella at about 1/4 power. The photo attached was shot using my 50mm 1.4 @ f4 1/125th sec iso 100. It's a bit washed on her cheeks, but a lil curve adjustment and it should be good to go.
