Heya,

Excellence. Really great. I think they're composed nicely. It's nice to not always have them boxed and centered. Good lighting. Would like to know if this is all natural light or if there was some flash involved. Interested to know if these are heavily processed at all too.

Very best,

Nice shots! Was the flash off-camera? Did you use any umbrellas or diffusers? How about FEC? Not sure if you had to dial it down for fill only, or did you keep up the power due to the distance? I'm a noob at people photography, so trying to learn.

I used a single 600ex-rt off camera helf by my daughter. I use fill flash in manual mode because I find ettl gives me varied results (can be frustrating if you like control). For groups, I zoom my flash wide, and just use a hint of light (1/64 and lower) just to get some fill. I don't want to overpower that beautiful hair light. :)

Good work!
Generous space above heads works well for me. I think it just showed that the photographer loved nature and gave attention to details of trees (just as much as people).
My favorite is #2

Thanks hhuy, my background is in landscapes, so I like to include my surroundings. It's kind of a waste if u go on location and don't use it right? Might as well just shoot in your backyard if you crop every shot tight.

Beautiful images! First two stand out for me.

Thank you Sir!

I'm amazed at you using the 70-200 @200. I have to try that on my next family shoot. Great work!!

Thanks canon, just back up...waaay back and shoot her wide open.

This is very nice work, the light is amazing, and very nice balance between flash and ambient. The tree does subtract from the subjects a bit, but it's very cool, I probably would have left it in as well.

I use the 70-200II for most of my portrait work, but I have to admit, I usually shoot much tighter than that. I will be trying this in the future.

Thanks Dave, glad u like it.:)

Thanks Malveaux, the first two are natural light using a reflector only. The rest I used fill flash with just a strobe. Processing is just selective levels to add pop to my background and some toning and sharpening.

Outstanding set, first two especially. I'm sure your family loves them. Definitely wall-worthy.

Very Nice work. Great Job. Never thought about using my 70-200 for family style portraits. Especially full length!

Perfection!!!!!! I disagree with above poster about too much trees in frame, that makes them even better! You have a beautiful location so why not use it to enhance the image? With the shallow depth, the focus is still right on the subject .I'd love to know more about the lighting as well.

Thanks amber! I detailed the lighting in a previous post, just fill light with a single strobe.:)

Thanks rockford, the 70-200 nails focus wide open even from far away.

I love the way you used the trees to frame your subjects. The eye is drawn straight towards them:) Lovely!!!

I was looking at the first two, trying to figure out why they were so different, but fantastic at the same time.

Then after reading some replies it dawned on me - you broke the rules. :) I'm so used to seeing so many photo's with rules of 3rds for this type of shooting - these looked unique - and IMO actually adds to the image. You've made these your own - a very unique style, and I think it works very well!

I dont understand the comment about the first two images being top heavy, they look fantastic IMO and to my eyes they are done really well. It would be boring if you stuck with the usual way when shooting at 200mm which is a tight crop.

OP, these are really inspiring shots! One thing I don't understand, the first two shots are natural light and a reflector according to your comment above. Where was the reflector placed in order to light the subjects and also stay out of frame?

I've never been able to use a reflector from this distance and have it properly light the subject, any tips you can give would b appreciated.

These are seriously great shots, I wish I had taken them!
