I really love the backlighting on the last two! Very nice set overall!

Awesome, straight up. Love the last one the very much. It has no flash, just reflector? Also, curious what the 70-200 focal length was at.

Looks like the focal length ranges from 120 to 200mm.

Great work Patro!! The natural look you managed to pull off is typically quite hard for seniors but you nailed it.

I really appricate everyone's feedback, thanks! I agree that Lisa does amazing work!

For this session I shot with the 135L and a variable ND-Filter to balance the mix between my strobes and ambient light. Also, I previously deleted my ethinicity comment as I felt it was irrelevant to my post...however her mom is white, father is black. She could have fooled me!

Very nice, do you like the 135L for full body? What aperture are you using for full body?

I love the 135L for full body shots. You get a great compressed background and lovely bokeh/blur.

As far as aperture goes, a better question would be what are you trying to accomplish with your shot and adjust your aperture accordingly.

Between using ND filters, strobes, and controlling ambient light...my aperture changes for each situation.


...BECAUSE SEEKING VALIDATION FROM ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OPINIONS OF PAID CLIENTS.

Thank you for the kind comments! I did use the 70-200L II for this session. My reflector is 52" round & white. :)

I continue to enjoy all of your posts! Your images have such natural light appeal to them. Love your work!

so Patro, did the bee break when your stand toppled in the video? :-) first thing I thought to myself when looking at how your stands were setup in the different locations was "oh crap he needs sandbags on those...."

Patro, nice behind the scene video. I miss florida, went to school at UF. The water here in northern CA is so cold so good luck getting the model in water for more than 5 mins. Regarding bees dropping, mine did 2-3 times from the back of the car along with softbox when I open the door. Only mount broke. So they more resilient then most folks think. I am also more careful know and use much beefier stand so no sandbag doesn't worry me much now.
