My best friend and I make a great team. She loves to be in photos, and I love to learn to take better photos.

These shots were taken with the 70-200 2.8 and (for the first few shots) the 580 EX II on camera.

Any feedback you have on posing, exposure, or anything else is greatly appreciated.
I have a 4 channel wireless flash trigger in the mail on the way so I can't wait to start shooting with flash off camera in the future.

You're lucky to have such a great model. Only comment so far is try to avoid photographing women with their shoulders square to the camera like in #2. That is the widest part of a woman, and no matter how their body shape, most women want to appear smaller.

Who can ask for a better friend?


Equipment list - According to the wife - "how many more lenses do you need? Yet another camera?"  ???

I appreciate the feedback. We both love going on photo adventures when we aren't playing softball! :)

I definitely need to work on new posing techniques with her. Although she is in fabulous shape, we don't need to be drawing attention to the broad shoulders.

Does anyone have any thoughts on my lighting? I'm still getting used to the 580 EX II..

I like the lighting in #4 and #5. They are my favourite from the set, too. :)
I am not a fan of #1-#2, I think the framing could be better in #1 and the model is a bit underexposed in #1 and #2. Imho.

The last shot is the best, in my opinion. Nice lighting, great pose and concept. This shot flatters her more, as well.

In the first two pics, her face seems OOF.

The horizon is a bit tilted in #2.
The last one is my favorite. =)
