Advertising portrait & Sigma 30

Man, I love the Sigma 30

Haven't shared much here of late that I've been working on, but decided to share this one...

One of my favourite shots from an advertising shoot that I did a couple of weeks ago. Looking forward to seeing the images in print and on their website...

CC always welcome.

Thanks for the comments.

The shoot was for an auto sales company. I believe this image is going in on a full page add in the Auto Trader.

Very nice looking shot here, your photo has amazing color and the sharpness is great as well. I also like the PP treatment you used on this shot as it really makes in pop. I also like your models expression, its very natural and look great in the photograph.

Thanks for sharing,

Wow, stunning picture there, ll_coffee.
I must say the Siggy is good in producing the colours and the creamy bokeh.
Looking at the picture, it has good colours and the sharpness is amazing. The model facial expression looks natural and enhance the picture overall.
Only thing is the ad is on the car or the model??
Thanks for sharing,

Thanks for the comments Pentaxie!

The pics are about the staff that work there, not the cars themselves. The company was hoping for some pics of their staff standing beside cars holding keys, etc., etc... But, I decided ahead of time that I wanted to make the shoot more about a lifestyle. I did their obligatory poses and shots, but as soon as they saw the lifestyle images that's immediately what they went for.

This shoot was for this particular employee. I've sinced lined up a second shoot with another employee as well, and there's a chance I could land two more dealerships as well.
