I have been doing a ton of school photos and youth sports T & I work but did have some time to do some portraits for a few seniors during all the other stuff. Here are a couple of my recent favorites. C&C always welcome.

Great set - regarding the basketball image, I think I would have placed the 2 outside images in the opposite positions.

This was not a composite so if I would have had them throwing balls to the center I really worried about catching a ball in the face which probably would not have been a good option.

I really like the look of both of these images....how did you get the light to fall off so abruptly in the background? Was this done in Post or was it lit that way and if so, what was the light placement? I really like the effect it gives! I probably would clone out the red blotch on the girls leg although it isn't that big a deal..

It was done in post. The backgrounds were pretty dark to start with from shooting somewhere around f/10 at 100 ISO but not totally black. I went ahead and made them black and feathered it into the lit areas.

Both shots actually had the rest of the team practicing in the background which was also another reason for the post work.

The red spot is a birthmark so left it alone.
