Looks good Gerry, did you try a shot with her barefooted? I think that's always a good look for a senior girl. I'm finding that too that seniors and parents like the tilt on some shots.

Because her feet were not up I didnt pay attention to the shoes, their so out of focus that I dont think it matters. :) Later when the feet were up in a different location the shoes were off. :)

Great Job Mike...gotta love a senior that will plop down in the water and bust a smile. Really like the warm colors and everything about it...my only nit is the lighting looks a little harsh, but only because I have really been working on my lighting lately with the alien bee additions to the arsenal...But yeah man, that's nice. Killer warm colors.

Don't know about the tilt (I can argue for either side), but love the DOF. Nicely done.

Haven't done any seniors in a while...wedding season's mostly to blame. Some of you might recognize Noa from last year; she was actually in my studio for a commercial shoot and I held her a little after for a quick headshot. :p I may still fiddle with it a little, but overall this is pretty much done.

Thanks.. we waited until the sun dropped below the horizon for the water shots. It lights the entire river like this for about 5-6 minutes,, pretty cool,,then its back to ugly muddy brown,,especially after all the storms

Random question for all the pro's here, how often do you liquify your senior portraits? Do you wait to be asked or just go ahead? :)

Gerry, I only do it if a senior or parent asks if, "something can be done about the...." For self portraits, I use it ALL the time -- lol!! :)

Not a pro, but I'll do it quite often with smaller things. Like if someone is wearing a strapless or thin strapped top and there's some armpit fat poking out I'll liquify that back. If they're wearing shorts and there's a little thigh bulging out I'll liquify that back.

"There's a common misconception that all photographers want to photograph famous people, to be a paparazzi. To me that's like selling my soul. My photographs give thanks to people who have helped me out. Thats not selling my soul, that's gaining it." -Bob Campagna
