Looking back at my archive of photos, I had neglected to review some of my model shoots I did in the past. I must have picked another picture and ran with it, but when I saw this gem, I had to post it. It was shot with a Canon 1DS MKII using a Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS lens. It was shot at F/2.8 @ 110mm, and there was a light reflector bouncing light onto her. There isn’t much here for the Fort Worth Water garden because it’s blurred out in the background, but lighting and the model seemed to make this photo work really well.
I should mention that this is also my first time using Portrait Professional software. I’m still getting used to the software, but I think the results speak for themselves. Combination of Lightroom/Portrait Pro and Photoshop, with Portrait Professional doing the heavy lifting. If you’re on the fence about getting Portrait Professional, just download their trial.

Fort Worth has some interesting western scenery with the stockyards. It was fun to shoot Anna there this weekend, along with the friends from the Dallas Photography meetup group. Anna was an excellent model and had great poses throughout the photoshoot. The photos shown here were shot with the Canon 1ds Mk2, using an 85mm f1.2 lens.
On the evening of August 1st, my family and I were in New York City. In the evening we ventured to Time Square, and witnessed this little body painting show. It is a very interesting art form. I must say it takes a lot of guts to do this in the middle of Time Square. Wide angle image was taken with a Zenitar 16mm fisheye, and the portraits were taken with the 85mm 1.2.
Here we have the lovely Laura Lane. She was a model from a photo shoot I did on March 15, 2009. My favorite thing about this photo is it shows innocence and intrigue. This was shot in a park in Plano, Texas. A golden reflector was used to her diagonal right, and was taken with my trusty Canon 70-200F2.8 IS. I love this lens.. 😀
