Joshua, one thing for sure is you have a beautiful wife.
You made good use of the 105 vr along with your pp ability to create wonderful shots of this lovely lady.

I am not sure about the placement of the hands on the chair, they seem to be distracting from a otherwise fine series of shots.

Thanks, Darrell. How could I better position her hands? Just leave them out of frame?


Nice series Joshua. Nothing like a pretty live in model.
You got that right, Roy!

Very nice shots (and wife of course :smile:)

I see you did some skin treatment is processing them. I find that it is a neccessity with the 105VR to soften the skin as it has a habit of showing every pore and blemish, regardless how minor.

I have "given up" on the 105VR for portraiture 'cos of my 28-70 and 85/1.4. After seeing these images I think it is time for a "revisit".

Lovely images of your beautiful wife. She must be mighty pleased with this series.

Awesome series Joshua. I really like the soft lighting.
Thanks Keith, the softliter really does a good job here.

Wow, yet another excellent series of your beautiful wife. I think #3 just gorgeous. I'm with Keith, I love the soft lighting.
Thanks, Fred.

great work & a beautiful model, but is that really your wife....
Haha, yeah I know...It still makes me wonder. I think I married way outta my league. Hope she doesnt find out.

Yes, I tend to soften, especially on my sharper lenses...the 105mm VR is very sharp, which I prefer for te eyes and lips.

She likes them. I finally bought the 105mm VR after Nikon didnt announe an 85mm repalcement at PMA. There has to be an AFS version coming soon...until the, the 105mm will do nicely. It even makes a great macro lens :biggrin:

These are very nice! You both should be very happy with these. Excellent lighting!
Thanks Woody, lighting was 2 sb600s, one in a Softliter II and the other in an umbella

Wonderful shots, showing some of the capabilities of the 105mm VR!!!
Thanks.

Your wife is such a good sport Josh. Great series. The lighting is sweet and you are putting that lens to great use..
I love this lens...one of my favorites now.

Josh, these are fantastic! The last one is my favorite. What PP did you do? I've been trying to get that look for a while and haven't figured it out yet...
