Lisa, one of the seniors I shot last year got engaged as well. I cant imagine being married that young but to each their own.

I can't either, but then again, I was married at nearly that age...I married at 20 and had my first baby 2 days shy of my 21st birthday. As statistics would have it, that marriage didn't work out, but I do wish these 2 the best. They seemed like a sweet couple. You never know...there are people out there still together with their high school sweetheart, so I hope that's what's in store for them. :)

You guys are funny - thank you!! The black and white was done using an action I wrote myself...nothing fancy, just a black & white gradient map and a little bit of added contrast and color tinting.

Really like those last 2 you posted, Bryan! He looks very relaxed and natural - good job!

Here are a few more from Mary's session. I don't get seniors often so I have to milk the ones I do get for all they're worth. lol

Very nice. I like them a lot. Now I have to get the 50L.

LisaJH, the action I created does the same thing, it creates three adjustment layers, curves, channel mixer and gradient. :) Then I look at the rgb or cmyk channels to see what I like and go from there .:D Its pretty fun usually :D

Like the shots. Would have liked them better if she smiled and all her expressions were not the same,makes it kind on monotone to me. The colors and DOF in #3 are awesome.. good job.

Those are all amazing Lisa. Some of your best senior work, imho. To me, the second image looks like their skin tones are a smidge too red in comparison to the rest, though.

Wow a rare critic of Lisa! It's so hard to do.

Lisa combines awesome photography, post processing, posing, and styling too put all to shame. We can learn all her secrets, but we will never have her amazing style.

I am jealous. :D

Haha. Believe me, I've seen idiots say terrible things about her and her work. I know and have seen her say how much of a perfectionist she is, and mysel being the same way though I don't possess nearly the sme skill, I'd want someone the point out stuff like that to me. :)

Speaking of ring light, my home made one never got the effect that tiff's ebay one does, but I was wondering if that could be a full frame *tiff* or crop body *me* result? I think were both using a 50mm but I'm further back to get the same shot.

Its been a while, I knew it was a lens I had, was thinking it was 50mm for some reason. :) But I just realized the reason I wasn't getting the circle in the eye as big as you were was because of the distance from the subject due to the crop/full frame. :) Plus mine was a bit crappy. :D Two mixing bowls with the center cut out of each for the lens, covered in interfacing material, with a hole in the bottom for the flash, and the larger bowl covered in reflective duct tape.

I should have just bought the one you recommended on ebay. :D I have it bookmarked but its been so long who knows where it is. :D
