Great shot and can appreciate the crisp focus, is she really in water! Also how do you get 75mm out of a 24/70 lens?

Thank you. Yeah, it's tough to get a photo out there without another photographer in the background :)

Thanks, yes we were actually both in her pool. I was either using a 28-75 Tamron or a 70-200 Canon depending on the different shots I did. I have no idea why they keep showing up as a 24-70.

Here's a video that her mother shot of us while we were shooting.

I have never really dabbled in this genre, but have had a few requests recently.

I did my first shoot last week, but it was cut short due to it being abnormally hot (over 100). Here is one that I did take in the beginning. Taken with one of those smaller softboxes for a speedlight (need to get an octobox or bigger softbox, but I think it actually worked pretty decent considering)

A couple from a recent senior session. Lighting was an Einstein and a Buff 35" foldable octabox.

That bridge looks familiar..... Here's one from a senior shoot in the same location. Natural light and a reflector.

Nice one. Couple things to watch, tree hugging, I don't know, I don't like it. Also that top the way is making her look fat. Would be nice with a clip on the back

I need to post here more often... here's one from a few weeks ago with her cheer outfit. The bottom hand bugs me a bit but she kept putting it back like that. She was happy with the final result.

Very nice. What's your light setup? Particularly the on the stomach beach shot. Feel my octobox spreads too much. Not sure if a grid will suffice or I should start looking into these deep parabolics. Also, any advice on finding cool chairs?

Thanks Umphrey. For lighting I use my Canon 430ex shot through a 24" softbox triggered by the built in flash on my 60D. The chair I got for $5 at a Yard sale.
