Have a few family/couple shoots coming up in the mountains so figured I'd test the waters and scope out some spots. Brought along my trusty 28" Apollo, had a SB-900 with a TT1/TT5 setup and considering I was lugging it around and had my patient daughter with me, I think it went pretty well. I figure for 2-3 people this softbox/setup should work just fine and it's too cumbersome if I don't have an assistant to help out.

All of these shots except #2 have flash...and damn, some times Cottoning it is the way to go. :noes:

And lastly, finally broke out my 14-24mm (just trying to find scenarios where it seems appropriate to use). 9-13 were all shot with this, so if used correctly, it's not completely unusable for portraits. :big grin:

great set..

I know you weren't trying to be pervert like, but I wouldn't suggest posing a young girl with her legs spread, like #8..

#11 is great..
#7 is great..
i like the depth of #5, i probably would have used a longer shutter though to get more of the natural light in the shot..

just my opinions :bigthumb:

I appreciate the comments on #8...it's my daughter so I'm well aware. If she had a skirt on or something to that effect then I wouldn't have posted them, but I do appreciate it and definitely noticed it (not ideal).

Thanks for the compliments man! :bigthumb:

#11 FTW

#6 is too bright for me..loses too many nuances in her face

and i heard she <3's animals

:coold:

let me ask you this..you posted 13..how many did you take, total?

Thanks Mike!

In this set, I shot about 125. On my typical shoots, I'll generally shoot about 400-500 (I shoot too much and take too much time) and will have about 50 shots that are good and then narrow those down to 10-15 that stand out.

Yessir, that'd be me.

I ended up just taking it out...smaug got me all skurred.

I didn't even read his post. Must have missed it because I agree with what he said. I just didnt want to say it and feel like a creep. :o

I was trying to sound as non-creepy as possible..

the picture was technically good, the pose just needed work especially since it is a child.. i'm sure parents wouldn't want to see that picture sent to them from a session with their child..

since she is your daughter that probably didn't effect you, if someone else was the photog you might get a little creeped out.. removing it, is a safe move :bigthumb:
