First senior shoot!

Postby blue-eden » Tue Jul 06, 2010 7:07 am

I had my very first session on Saturday!

Yasmine is a college student, and sits for us on Saturday nights. LOVE her. Sweetest, nicest girl and stunning! Her dad is Greek, her mother is Egyptian so she has the loveliest olive skin tones (which I tried to balance when post processing, without taking away too much of her olive complexion, with the deceptive greenery in the background).

LOVE shooting with someone who wants to pose! My photography mentor was joking that it's about time I ventured out of shooting just my kids, who fight giving me eye contact :rofl:

Anyway. The lovely Yamine. I colour popped and went for dark and dramatic with post processing because of the location.

Mostly shot with the 35 mm 1.8 lens which I seriously :hb: (except the last ones, shot with the 85 mm 1.4), iso 400, SS varied, aperture stayed around F2 on the 35 mm and 2.2 on the 85 mm .
