    So I shot 3 other girls this past weekend for my website. This is my first time doing portraits of other people besides my mom or sister so learning how to pose them is extremely hard for me. It was nice having Austyn and Annette together because they helped each other out with posing but Lindsey I had a tough time coming up with poses. Anyone have any tips for that? Anyways on to the pics! Any comments welcome, thanks!

    Jordan,

    These are all exceptional! Is it a lens (which?) or PP that gives you the great DOF?

  6. Very nice Jordan! Love the colors.
     
  7. Jordan - Pretty girls, awesome smiles. Tell ya what I really like about your photos - great lighting and no hot 'shinny' spots! Your posing is good, lighting is good, girls are having fun - all of it really rocks. Plus a nice variety of shots, full body and tight facials. Let's see more
     
  8. Great job with these. I really like #5. I'd love to hear more about your lighting and/or reflectors.

    Thanks everyone! It really means a lot.

    My setup for the day was my D300 and the 70-200mm VR so Mike it was the lens that gave the great DOF. It reall is an exceptional lens.

    Mitch believe it or not it was all natural light, no reflectors or anything. I was trying to get my hands on a reflector before the weekend came but couldnt so I had to do without. The morning I shot Annette and Austyn it was overcast which turned out perfect. I shot Lindsey later that night and the sun had finally came out so it was harder to find places to shoot her where there would be no shadows since I had no reflector. So for her I just tried to stay in places where there was no sun showing.

    Jordan, I just checked your flickr website, and you have quite some talent. Please keep them coming. I would love to have the 70-200 but boy is that one heavy piece of glass.

    Thanks Brad!

    I know me too, I just rented it from Glazer's for the weekend. It's actually really cheap to do so, so every once in awhile I'll get a list of people lined up to shoot one weekend and go spend the $30 bucks to use it.

    Though I am saving up for it right now, it might just take awhile haha

    They are all great. You captured the three lovely ladies very nicely. I am sure they will be very proud of these.

    Haha don't worry I'm in the same boat. Since I only rented it, having used it now, it makes you want it so much more. I cannot wait till I have the money to purchase this lens. It quite is amazing. I really though would like to try the 85mm f/1.4 just to be able to stop down to 1.4.
