Hi All,

My wife and I decided to go for a walk in the wood yesterday, while we were there she posed for a few shots. This is my first real attempt at portrait type shooting. Overall I'm quite pleased with the results, and I really enjoyed shooting outside in some of the locations we found. I'm looking forward to going back soon.

All taken on the D200, 70-200mm at f/2.8

I've also tried converting a few to B+W, again this is a bit of an experiment.

Welcome to The Café Andy. This is a good start! The last is very god. Nice location shot with good use of depth of field. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

One thing I might suggest... It looks like you focused on her clothes rather than her face. Try focusing on her face, and I specifically like focusing on the eyes.

Andy, thanks for sharing these.

The first B&W is my favorite of the series. The first few color shots could have benefitted from fill flash to even out the lighting on her face.

Be real careful where you focus with that lens if it is wide open.

I think I have just realised that about this lens. I though I had a good focus on her face but I must have been a little out. At 2.8 and 100mm+ being a little out really has a big effect. I must be more careful next time or perhaps stop down a little.
