It's been a few days since I had the long glass out, I've been shooting with he 70-210 and even the 18-135, while the 60-250 is off for repairs after a drop.

From today's session in the blind..
K-3 and A-400 plus 1.4 TC,for 560mm.
400 ISO, ƒ16, AV mode

Cleaning out an SD card and found a couple of keepers I'd previously missed. Vivitar Series 1 105mm F/2.5 Macro and Raynox DCR-250 (around 2:1 macro magnification) for the first, and Pentax-M 150mm F/3.5 plus coupled reverse something-or-other for the second (probably about 4:1 magnificaction).

Just wow !!

I see you are in Florida ... I am at 2 hours and a half from you on a plane ... If you need an assitant while you are shooting those beautifull models just make a sign and I take a plane !!! (just to be close enough and not be scrolling back and forth as other PF members) !

Congratulations on your pictures !!
Thank you! It's funny how many people have been volunteering to assist me on these shoots. Even people who up till now had zero interest in photography.

Hey I hope your're getting some paid gigs now since that's a nice portfolio overall that highlights your proficiency with both pre+post processing under a diverse set of conditions. Though if I were to select one as a fav it would be the second since to me the model seems the most natural in front of the camera. Nice to see you working with that 43mm again...you ought to consider adding a *55mm to your kit at some point. I think you might like that focal length and the rendering is right up there with those limiteds.
It's still mostly a hobby but I do get contacted for paid stuff almost every week now half of which I turn down for creative/scheduling reasons. I generally don't share the photos from paid gigs because they are not really as much fun or interesting to me. Maybe someday I can have my cake and eat it too but until then I really can't complain too much.

OK, We get it. Lots and lots of time spent photography lovely young women. Must you rub it in??
Yes, I must!

He can rub it in as much as he likes, just as long as he keeps posting the results!
That's the plan!

Rondec - That looks more like Florida than winter in Indiana?
Cute kids and a nice sharp contrasty shot, my niece would fit right in, and probably try to take over as ring leader...heh heh.
