    For me...the shadows spoil the shot. I don't know if you intended shooting that way, but you loose all the detail in the shadow. I like the look in #1 but would like to see the whole face and the nice hair color in the sun.

    The shadow wasn't really planned. It was real spontanious so I didn't want her to have to move and loose the mood. My wife is real reluctant to take pictures so I had to move quickly.

    Teaching my girlfriend what little I know about photography and she's picking it up pretty well. She took this portrait a few weeks ago:

    I see you borrowed the 24-70. I'm very close to purchasing that particular lens and am doing some last minute research. How did you like using it. Did you find the focal range adequate for portrait work? What about the weight? I think this lens would partner the 70-200 lens very nicely. What are your thoughts? Cheers!
    I absolutely love the lens! It's fast and very sharp. The focal length on my 40D worked just great. The 24mm becomes 38.4mm and the 70mm becomes 112mm, just in the range for portraiture. Yeah it's a heavy lens but I liked the weight, feels more solid.

    I dont wana be rude or something, but have you noticed and compared your pictures against other ... Have you noticed that none of your pictures are sharp. I think if it is not your lense, than it is your camera settings or something. Maybe you like little unsharp pictures but anyway I yust want to tell you that if you like them that way, than ok, if you think the same like me, than something is wrong. Lense or settings witch I think can be set better... This is only my opinion and if you like them that way than it is your coice, I yust want to tell you that I noticed that...

    No hard fealings, I yust want you to know...

    It could be that resizing them 2 times makes them a bit soft. The last one may have gotten the rail. I'll repost.

    That came out nice Turo. Don't let her pass you up!

    Here are a few from today. Her hair kind of gets lost in the background. I probably should have put my second flash behind her and to the left. Next time!

    Great exposures man. Yeah her hair for sure gets lost but like you said, "next time".

    On Monday Lynnette and I went to Doug Gordon's workshop in Oakland, California.

    It was an eight hour workshop for only $59! We did both learning in the classroom and live shooting. The first image he was showing us his posing techniques which he refers to "Flow Posing". With his flow posing system he was able to pop out 50 DIFFERENT poses in a matter of 30 minutes! Just imagine how quick he could have got them done without explaining to all of us! It's a major time saver when you're under the gun at a wedding. Doug is a genius when it comes to posing people naturally. Probably because he studied alongside with the great Monte Zucker, R.I.P. for ten years. In part with his posing skills he is also a spectacular business man. "Remember, as a wedding and portrait photographer we are paper salesmen", he said. Meaning don't just give your clients a CD/DVD with their photos on it. When you do that, all you are doing is putting the professional labs out of business. You know that your client is just going to go to their local grocery store to get them printed. Then the college guy working there trying to pay off his college debt isn't going to have a clue how to print your colors or custom size you made special for your client. Along with just giving them a CD/DVD the client most likely won't get the album done on their own or they won't be able to because it will cost too much. No other photographer will put it together because now they have to work with someone else's work. So in the end your reputation and credibility is on the line. We all know that's the last thing we want for our business. Anyways, that's just a tad of what Doug Gordon had to say on that day. SELL THE PAPER(PRINTS & ALBUMS) & POSING IS IN AGAIN!
