Last Fall's Homecoming (5img)
Posted By: paden501, 01-06-2008, 12:33 PM

Here's a few from a homecoming event I did this las fall. They're nothing special, but I just felt like sharing. Everything was taken with a *ist DL, 18-55 kit lens and AF540 flash for fill.

Here are a few more. These ones are of my little brother and I think these photos are a good bit older. C&C welcome.

*ist DL, FA 50/1.4

Theanks Bear.

Yeah the second batch is a different dance all together. Batch 1 is my girlfriend's sister and batch 2 is my brother. The setting for batch 2 was awesome and I had 1 on 1 time with the models so I could frame the photos and I could use the 50. With batch 1, there were about 20 couples and 100 parents trying to get pictures all at the same time so I didn't get to choose poses or backdrops or anything.. the other thing was nobody else had flash so all the poses took place somewhere that everybody else could get a picture (right in the sun) and I had a heck of a time getting both in the picture to actually look at me at the same time because there were always at least 10 cameras on each couple... it was... interesting.

I agree with Kim, The first batch are decent but the 2nd shot in the second batch is the best. I would try to clone out the thing that looks like it's sticking out of his head though. The 1st shot there is good as well. Great looking kids.

The 2nd patch is the impressive lot. The mood and tone are really great
