    I am starting to do some senior portraits.
    Luckily my sister is going to be a high school senior this year, so not only do I get to do hers, but most of her friends too.

    Here are a few of the first few outings. Luckily for her, having a brother with a nice camera can get her as many senior portraits as she wants...

    Comments and critique are welcomed







    more to come of other seniors....

    Nice work Blake - very creative. Critique-wise, #1 is a little to smooth for me. However, it is a great shot.
  3. Hey Blake............ #1 is good........................ but for me, if it was MY Senior portrait............. I'd pick #4............ moody, different and COOL!

    Great work!

  4. Good series Blake with some of them being quite creative. If you reduce the skin blur a little on the first image it will be a winner. I really like the dugout picture.
  5. Man, that 4th one in the dugout is GREAT!!!
  6. These are great! #4 is awesome and very creative... I will have to use that some time. :cool:

    thanks for the kind comments guys. I will definitely tone down the blur on the first one. I have a tendency to do that....

    Honestly, the dugout picture was quite an accident. I just happened to stumble across the idea moving from one shot to another.

    I agree with most of the previous comments regarding #1. Also, #4 is my fav. Well done!

    They are all nice, but like everyone else I like #4 the best. Great job!

    I've seen this before, and noticing that you have a D80 (same as me) -- how did you achieve shot#6? Is that an in camera ability, or is it all PP?

    Great work. My favorite is the tracks picture. However, I would try and take out those columns and clone a tree there. But I truly love everything about your shoot.

    Blake for me if you are going to soften one that much as you did #1 you should soften the skin in all

    Danmab, you stack multiple photos on top of each other. It fakes a film effect of multiple exposure

    exactly.. it was actually with two D80's. mrsollars and I were both shooting here. Therefore we were able to get some quick shots in between eachother's frame rates.
    I just then used a little photoshopping cut and paste to put the others on there with the first frame.
