#7 is my favorite with #1 being a really close second. Great job on the lighting.

Thanks again for all of the positive feedback! I was worried about lighting initially because we ended up getting to the park at about 10:30 and it was full sun - not a cloud in the sky. It was a challenge keeping harsh light off her face. I manged to keep her in the shade and the rest is just a 5-in-1 reflector and an SB-700.

Here's another bunch from the same shoot. Hope you like them.

I really love one and seven but I wish #1 was not so centered....
Excellent work!

Thanks, Rey. #1 is indeed centered, but I didn't want to lose her hand or the top of her head to make it rule-of-thirds-friendly. #14 is an opposite angle and is a better crop. Glad you liked them.

Is she a model, or were these senior portraits or...?

Love #12, but I'd back off on the tilt a little - I love tilts, don't get me wrong, but i find myself looking at some of these with my head turned, which is my personal marker of "too much"

You're right about tilt - it's easy to get carried away ;)

I was actually conservative with this set. Only 3 of the 14 shots I posted are tilted. In #12 (which I think is my favorite) she was leaning back against a trunk, so the camera was actually pretty close to level for that shot. Her mom really liked that one also.

She's a friend of my daughter and is an aspiring model. She might choose one of these for her yearbook portrait, but there's lots of time for more. She's only 16...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the light on #7!

What lights are you using other than ambient (on the whole set)?

#7 seems to be a big hit! Emily loved this one as well. It really did end up being very dramatic. Every shot used an SB-700 for fill. It was either mounted on my D700 with a 8" x 6" softbox, or it was firing into a reflective, socked umbrella. On some shots I also used a 5-in-1 reflector. In #7, her mom was pointing the silver side through the window.

Glad you like it!
