She just left the studio. These are straight offs. Got a lot of shots with her but it was nice to officially kick of the 2013 season this afternoon

Cool shots Mike. Looks like you made the same mistake I did. I wished I had lit the broadhead.

Love seeing the youth involved in archery...especially the girls.

Here is my daughter's senior pics with her bow...

...and she doesn't just look good posing...she's a great bow hunter as well. ;)

She is actually lit differently than yours. I used 2 strip boxes, a hair light and a silver reflector for enough fill to see the front of her face. The second shot i turned on a 4th box and it had to much fill for my liking but she liked it and asked me t post it on her FB page.......there are way better onethat i will get up in a couple of days.

Sure. I just meant that I would have liked more light on the arrow head. I wasn't refering to the lighting on the face although I understand why I confused you.

I liked color better because it picks up the colors in the background. Got a bit of work to do on it to get it finalized so im leaning color before i proceed.

I almost got an archery girl in the studio last year but it fell through.

It looks like there are actually arrows in the bows posted by you guys, hopefully the string wasnt taught. :D I wouldnt want to be hit by an arrow or have my camera hit by an arrow. :D

The one in mine was drawn and aimed directly at the camera lens. (Of course I was using a remote to fire the camera.)

I would just snap a couple at a time so he didn't have to hold the drawn bow for too long. I also asked him nicely not to shoot my camera, and made sure his finger was behind the trigger of the release.

Definitely finger behind the trigger...I also have them draw their bow away from me, and then bring it in towards the camera. Most bowhunters I have shot know their equipment, and know how to use it safely...if it was just some "rookie" wanting pics with a bow, I wouldn't do that shot.
