Back at it again with my friend, we decided to photograph her New Year's outfit, outside... in the cold.

Photos taken with a Canon 6D and 85L in all natural light.

As always, any questions, comments, suggestions, recommendations, etc. are greatly appreciated. Enjoy!

Also, I took the opportunity to take a self-portrait before going out. Photo taken with 24-70 II. Lighting was just a 430EX II flash through a reflective umbrella about 45 degrees camera-left.

nice bright set #4 #5 are the best from your set ...but image #2 try a tight head crop and clone out the twig and tidy the stray hairs i think this has most potential for a head shot
good eye contact ect


Stuff....

Last shot looks sharp as a tack! Something I'd expect to see in a mens magazine...though the coat on the other side of the couch causes visual conflict in the image.

Thank you! I decided to give #2 a tighter crop and I do agree with you that it looks better.

Thanks! I debated whether to include the coat or not, figured it would fill in the emptiness and provide a little contrast of the neutral grays, though I do see what you're saying.

The coat creates a story IMO. Every man knows the feeling of waiting for her to get ready

I like 1 with its DOF. I may clone out the branch coming into her head.
