Senior and Family Portraits that are all about you!

Basketball Portrait Idea

Daijha let me “experiment” with some ideas I have for senior portraits.

This is pretty close to what I had conceived in my mind, but there are some things I would try differently.  That is the way to learn!  I wanted her in her game jersey, but the room the uniforms are in was locked.  We’ll do that for next time.

It comes close to what I have envisioned.  I will have to use a snoot to concentrate the flash on the Panther logo a little better.

I used two flashes for this, both Yongnuo YN560’s, triggered with my new Cactus V5’s.

There was one camera left, on Daijha, at 1/8th power, gelled with a 1/4 CTO gel.

Second flash was about 30 feet behind Daijha pointed at the Panther mural at 1/4 power zoomed to 105mm, gelled with an indigo gel.

This was taken with my Canon 1D Mark II and Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 lens.  Camera settings were:
1/250, f/2.8, ISO 50, Focal length 55mm

    Wow! That’s a sweet pic! Daijha is one blessed girl to have her dad as a photographer!
