Not up to par with you guys but this young man needed his Senior shots when the original photographer backed out at the last minute.

Just a few from my first senior shoot....first shoot ever really....not up to par with the rest of you fine photogs, but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, considering my lack of experience.

I think this looks great, I don't see how it could be improved on! Beautiful colors...

These are great. Mine aren't up to par but it's definitely inspiring me to do better. Mine has a few hot spots in the lighting so I need to work on that:

These are great! :D

Jen

Most last year picked 1 or 2 from the indoor sessions and went with other selections from the outdoor sessions. I think the majority prefer outdoor but im hoping to step up the studio lighting more and get a fashion type look that the girls will go for. Still working on a couple of patterns.

I want to focus more on studio/fashion shots as well, I love the idea of not being dependent on the weather as much and have more lean-way on when I can schedule stuff instead of waiting 1.5 hours before sunset. :) Plus climate control! :D It seems the older I get the more the heat gets to me. I never use to sweat.

Im thinking of adding a wall surface to one part of the studio that is just being used for storage and create a physical background that the client/model can lean against and interact with. Lowes has some interesting 4x8 pannels, im just trying to think of the best way to attach a hinged wall so I can have the background wrap around the client. Right now I'm leaning towards using a hollow indoor house door. Plus it will be a couple hundred cheaper than a denny drop :D

Gerry here is what ive discovered

The more Krap you try to make yourself is just more Krap laying around and having to store and work around. Our studio is L shaped.. 28" long one way and 26' long the other direction.

Ive got 3 muslins hanging on walls with rollers above. My storage area hold my chairs, light modifiers and additional drops on a rack. The Nice thing about denny and the other drops we have is we can change to different looks in about 2 minutes. So while they are changing clothes, im changing drops.

Notice Pham is using grey seemless. We are doing the same thing. If you have CS5 or CS6 is just toooo easy to cut them out and do a photo comp. The trick is to light them like the lighting would hit them in the background. Notice phams 3 light pull back. Very universal. We have the same thing and are able to get shots like this to give clients a different look

Our client B ught a 16x24 metal print of this. It was shot against grey seemless. So i would think real hard about buying stuff and making stuff,,,, comps work well

I know it's posted somewhere in this amazing thread (probably part uno), but where is everyone buying the digital backgrounds for composites at? Have never tried to do anything like that but may experiment a bit. Thanks in advance.
