if she is showing, you could paint a 0 over her belly button, a 2 above that and a horizontal 13 below the 0 :D

Now that's creativity ;)

Perhaps I should finally do a double sided picture. Picture taken from front and back at the same time, same distance and angle.

Nice set Wayne! Too bad those wacky branches got close to her head in #4. Looks like a great shooting location. Did you use your 35L in any of these out of curiosity? I'm debating on getting one, but I need to figure out how much use it'd get.

Love 1, 3 and 5, Wayne. Not sure what you were going for on #4 but it doesn't work for me. Britni's dress looks unflattering on #2. Abbey has a great, beautiful smile. #3 is my overall favorite of the set.

Lovely set Wayne, I just wish you had taken the shoes off in the first one. I hate seeing shoe bottoms in photos. Bare feet in shots like that are SO much cuter!

Thanks! I didn't use the 35L at all in this shoot. Which is kind of a shame because I love that lens, but I shot this with another shooter (portfolio building). He had his 16-35mm ii on most of the day and took most of the shots needing that focal length. I did throw on my TS-E 45mm when the 135L wasn't glued on. 135L was used for all five of these.

I know this, but always seem to forget. I'll try and remember for the next time. Thanks for the tip Tiffany!

35L is hard when shooting these kind of shots. But it does give different look. Not a senior but some examples where I used 35L along with my 70-200mm f2.8 IS II.

Thanks Bobby, great information. The more I think about it, I probably wouldn't use it much for outdoor portraits, but rather for indoor use.

When would you want to use a 35mm when shooting a girl other than trying to get a wider look? Most girls seem to like the compression that a long lens gives you, wheras the 35mm is probably what adds the 10 pounds?

Sure, if you are in close. But, thats not what I would use it for. I think if you want to really show the environment around her. For example this shot:

It was taken at 45mm, but I could have shot it at 35mm as well, but it would be difficult to get it with a longer focal length. So, I try to use the right focal length for the shot I'm trying to get. Some will say why even take such a far away shot making the model soooo small and others will talk about how brilliant the shot is. It is very subjective. Personally I don't care for ultra wide angle shots close up because of the distortion. If you do shoot 35mm close I'd keep the model in the center. For most portrait work it is about the model and not the environment. For this I do prefer a longer focal length.

But then again I do like to totally break the rules on occasion and do something crazy like shoot portraits with tilt. :eek:

I honestly cant think of a circumstance where I would want to use a 35mm to shoot a flattering portrait. If you frame wide enough (and keep the subject at a distance) you can get around the perspective distortion but then it ceases to be a portrait as much as it is a scene with a person in it.

Different look. I don't think it adds 10 pounds. Look at the samples above. Couple more:

Wayne, are you using some tilt shift for these? The blurry feet making me little dizzy.
