I like the first one but move her away from that tree. 2nd one bring up the ambient, actually the whole picture can use little bit more exposure.

This was my first senior portrait shoot. T'was a great experience.

Main light was an Einstein thru a 22" BD. For rim/kicker lighting I switched off between my 430EXII and the sun.

LisaJH and Patliean1,

Patliean1, not sure why i need to guess her ethnicity though, not important to me, but your work is wonderful.

Agree, love the last one. Lens wise I am guessing 70-200mm f2.8 IS II.:D

Lisa I always love seeing your work and the warm colors you create. What size of reflector do you usually use? Thanks!!


I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

Thank you for the kind comments! I did use the 70-200L II for this session. My reflector is 52" round & white. :)

Some really really good shots here, what lens was this shot with?

In fact some of the best shots I have seen on this thread.

You have managed to make her look "natural" in a quite a few of the images and I find that "that look" is not easy to do looking at other senior pics on here...

Not keen on the pose on number 1, but the rest are stunning...

Again, you have managed to capture the natural look of the girl as I mentioned to the other shoter.

I think these and the last post I commented on are setting the standard for recent shots on this thread...

What lighting did you use?

Me Too-- nice shots. Im gonna go out on a limb and say Alaskan Indian

Lisa-- excellent. Love you PP work and lighting is awesome. Would love if you could share with everyone what you do with both---great work. I need to use my white reflector more than i do. If i can get the moms to participate i use it as i dont have an assistant with me most of the time.

She could be from south east asia also, very hard to judge.

Lisa - Agree with Mike, would love some insights about pp when using reflector etc.

I really appricate everyone's feedback, thanks! I agree that Lisa does amazing work!

For this session I shot with the 135L and a variable ND-Filter to balance the mix between my strobes and ambient light. Also, I previously deleted my ethinicity comment as I felt it was irrelevant to my post...however her mom is white, father is black. She could have fooled me!
