My middle daughter will be a senior this year and she has wanted to get some ideas for her senior pics.
She does not like to pose, so she is more comfortable with the outdoor casual shots.
I do believe I want to use a tripod the next time.
Here are a couple from last weekend in the backyard.

Both were taken with the 180mm @ F/5. SB600 on camera with small Lumiquest........

The first one is fantastic. The pose and facial expressions are very natural. The background is rather attractive too.

The second one I don't like as much, mainly because of the more, almost too, intense gaze. It would seem to me you bumped the exposure of the eyes a little too much for my tastes.

Thanks for the input, Jonathon.........I did try a screen layer reduced to about 15% opacity over the eyes. Too much, now that you mention it.

Pretty lady - I call both photos very nice.
Thank you, Charles!

Excellent shots of a very compelling model!

I like the pose on the first one. You've got the background nicely blurred, but the tree (I guess) just behind her is still distracting. I wonder if a slightly different angle would work better.

I agree about the tripod with that lens. Particularly since you were so close to the ground. You must have had quite a few that were slightly soft.

She is a very pretty girl and despite he lack of desire to pose she has done very well with these. I like them both. There is something about the second one that just does not look natural with the pose. Maybe if her head was tilted up a little. Looks a bit stiff bit as stated I still like.

Thanks, Mitch. Yes, it is a pine tree in the background.

Gorgeous!
Thank you.....

Thanks, Rhonda. Maddie is gone all week, so we'll go over the poses when she returns.
