Been a while, hope you all are well. Here's my current crop of Senior Portraits for the class of 2018..
All very nice sir. Are you using a wireless flash gun on a pole to get catchlights in the eyes, or is that all sun? Love them all, especially the water shots. Noticing your DOF on #1... was that with f2? I see everything from his left ear over slightly oof as though you had a shallower dof than the other images...., I am betting all of these young gents are quite happy as they should be.
Thanks Lee! Wireless off-camera flash on 1 and 3, on-camera naked flash on 2 and 4. Apertures were f/3.2, f/5.6, f/6.3, f/5.6 with a Canon 70-200/2.8II on a 5DSR. In #4 he wanted the lighthouse on the shore to be noticeable as it is a local landmark. Also he is on the sailing team and behind him is the waterfront where they sail from. Kind of wish I had used f/8 on #3 to further define the many dinghies behind him, tied to the dock he is sitting on.
By the way, if you use Firefox, there is a neat plugin called Fxif that allows you to right click any image and view the Exif info, if present.
A couple more...
Looks like you got it right, great and I'll bet they liked them! I would eliminate the I believe it is a tree to the picture right to the left of his head in the last one (just a suggestion, they are great as they are and you did a wonderful job)! And...you got them to smile! Larry
