Thanks! There were a few that I missed focused on that I really would of loved to have.

Here is an old one of my youngest daughter. I stumbled upon this the other day and really liked it.

I hear ya... That razor sharp DOF is a love/hate relationship! But like everyone says, when you nail it, it's magic!

The shadows, pose, and b/w all work well together! Another Great shot!

These are great. The 85L's bokeh sure is gorgeous!

Saw a thread that inspired me to put on my ND filter and shoot some studio stuff wide open.

I really appreciate the kind words.

Yeah, I don't know why it didn't dawn on me before, I always thought I just needed to get some sort of high speed sync for my strobes to use my prime L's wide open. I can see I need some work on my PP in dealing with the colorcast, but I'm overall happy with the results

Very nice set of images. I really like #2 and would love to see it in B&W. The last 2 studio shots would look great in B&W as well. I'm a sucker for mono.

Here is a BW for now, but I will go back and run a conversion on the last two as well.

Beatiful girls! Can't wait for my lil ones to reach this age. So hard to capture any portrait like this on a 16 months girl. BTW, love the freckles! :-):-)

It's nice when they get old enough to bribe for photo-shoots! Thanks for the feedback and kind words, I'll add some more soon. I'm looking to take the strobes outside and start working with balancing ambient and flash.

Excited to see some of those outside shots. May I ask what you normally set your shutter speed to? I'm still trying to learn my 85L.

Trust me when I say that your little one will be as old as these girls in no time, and you will be wishing for a few more moments with the 16 month old.

Shutter speed for me is dependent on light and what kind of situation I am shooting in. I did a quick look through my pictures and I seem to range between 1/125 - 1/1000 but again, so many factors play into it.

One thing I have found with the 85L is that it is tack sharp wide open, unlike some other fast primes I have had. It's an expensive and heavy piece of glass but I am now getting shots that I would miss with my old, manual rokinon 85 1.4
