Melissa and Ken family portraits Feb 2, 2014

Was really hoping for better light outdoors today, but we did manage to get some nice images in the studio where we can control the light. And the wind was a little nasty to boot so coming back to work on the edits from the mornings session was a welcome task. Hopefully I can still put something together for an outdoor winter scene in the Cameo Composite Pano theme.

Studio and Cameo Composite Pano Session Sunday Feb 2

I'm very excited about my upcoming photo session tomorrow! I'm looking forward to trying out all the shots I hope to include in the composition. Also with this session is a low key shot against a black screen in my studio and a 3 light setup. I'm using 2 speedlights in soft boxes for the key and fill lights and a flood light to highlight the backdrop. I have another flash I may use as a hair light but I'm not to worried if not. Tomorrows main event will be the outdoor scenes :).

Here's the results of my test shots this afternoon. It's a lot tougher than you'd think to get good self portraits. Focus, composition or posing is all done with best guesses lol! This shot was mostly about getting the backlighing setup were I wanted and I like this effect with the blue tint on a low key shot.
