My Daughters senior shots this year. she got a bunch, imagine that, but these were my favorite 3 shots,,but i swear, i would rather walk across hot coals at times. I can never meet my expectations when photographing her. our opinions differ thats for sure.

This young man races so he wanted his senior pictures to be a little different. We shot these in my garage and went out for a little spin around the track:cool:---- cool kid

First 2 shots were shot on a grey seemless paper backdrop, 3 AB400's with #20 grids, backdrop was lit with a green gel, No PP on either shot other than normal corrections in lightroom from the raw file.

Outside shot was with a 7d and a 70-200 f/4

Excellent, can you share your lighting and EXIF data? Any behind the scene photos?

All 5D.

1. ISO 200, 135 L, 1/800, f/2.0

Natural light....she was under a bridge on the edge of the shadow. Maybe a reflector but I don't think so.

2. ISO 200, 135 L, 1/320, f/2.0

Natural light again, maybe reflector, she was in a creek with somewhat high beds.

3. ISO 200, 135 L, 1/200, f/2.0

All natural light.

Sorry no behind the scenes.

Ok.. I'll get in on this too. OCF is new to me, and not a bunch of experience doing seniors yet, but I'm learning.. and not afraid of some constructive C/C.
This is a set from yesterday.

I like the first shot alot. In the second shot, I kind of wish the camera was turned so we could see more of her face. Nice work.

I just noticed, the last one seems to have an odd crop, may have to go back and see if I can change it.

Hmmm.. thanks, I should have tried that.

Nice color in your images, they really pop. The last one, with the odd crop, it doesn't bother me, as her head is well placed.

Here are three final images from last night. I posted 1 extra to show you guys/gals her acne and dark circles around her eyes. It was a real tough situation to deal with. Im always looking for better ways to deal with post processing, especially acne and problem areas that High school seniors present. Problem is definately more prevelant with the boys. The Skin on these shots are a little smoother than i like, but this is how im dealing with it.

So if someone has a great way to deal with acne,,im all ears. I use a healing brush, the clone tool at a very low opacity, and smooth to blend v/s smooth to hide. Im hoping someone has a better technique but this is how i deal with it.

Mike, I use the patch tool on most stuff.....patch the acne on a separate layer. Duplicate that layer and patch the undereye circles and reduce opacity to taste. Then I will either dodge a little to lighten them on another separate layer and adjust opacity or clone on a new layer in color mode and again adjust opacity. Then I flatten ad run portraiture on a new layer and adjust opacity again. :lol:
