    I have my first real portrait session tommorow. There will be a lot of new challanges as this will be of an older woman with glasses. The opposite of what I am used to shooting. This is the first of several shoots that came about from the "My Daughter" series I have been posting. I hope I can achieve a similar connection with them as I did with my daughter while shooting.

    Time to read up on my corrective posing and lighting material.:smile:
  2. Good luck sir!

    Based on the photo's you have posted in the past I am sure you will have nothing but awesome stuff!
  3. Good luck. But with you skill, you don't need much luck.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement.

    I usually do most of my work with the lighting but I will look into that plug in.
  5. You will do great so I wouldn't even worry. You will find that good lenses are really unforgiving of older peoples skin and wrinkles. A light touch up before showing them to the lady will work wonders. I had my 90 year old mother-in-law to practice on and if I showed them to her with zero touch up she didn't like them so I always gave them just a bit of softening and touch up. She loved them.

    Just an update.

    The portrait session got canceled at the last minute. Rescheduled for next week.

    Since I already had the lights setup I shot my daughter instead.:smile:
