Senior portraits: Becca
Posted By: maxwell1295, 06-07-2009, 07:51 AM

This was an impromptu senior session that I did with my daughter Rebecca. I have been meaning to do a session with her before she graduated, but schedules and her being sick for a while got in the way. We were out yesterday looking for a place to have lunch. Since I had the camera in the car, I decided to make a quick detour so we could stop and take a few pics.

It was midday and there was a really bright overhead sun......definitely not the best of conditions to shoot in. I only had one lens with me, but happened to have a few flashes in the car. I threw one on the hotshoe for some fill since the sun was so bright.

All of these were shot with K20D, DA*16-50, and Sunpak flash on the hotshoe. Everything was shot in full manual except the two closeups (1 and 7), which were shot in Av mode with natural light. I used a foamboard reflector for fill in the last one.

first of all, cool watermark/logo.. I want one 2

I like all of them.. they have much life to them, and it is easy to get a feel that this girl is full of life.

Great series. The last one is the beauty shot, but #2 and #3 show a lovely, lively, gorgeous girl. Well done!
