    Default Family Session for CC

    I posted a few of these on my CC thread, but I'd love some more feedback This was a shoot for a photographer back in IL. We were introduced by my cousin, when the photographer needed a second shooter for a wedding (which I had to decline due to scheduling problems). She had asked me if I'd be willing to photograph her family the next time I went back to IL for a visit, because he has really liked what I've been doing lately. I, of course, had to take her up on it!

    So here they are. I ran Noiseware on some of them, so the settings have been stripped on a few. If you need/want settings, I can dig them up for you (or you can view them on Flickr if you're a friend of mine on there. I'll be happy to add you!).

    There's more, but I'll stop with these. Some more from the set can be seen here: http://flickr.com/gp/stephanieamiller/Px8ZH0/ There were 24 in total, but I'm too lazy to do them all in web versions at the moment

    I saw some of these earlier, but want to say I really like #3 and #5. They're beautiful. The colour in #3 is just fantastic. Reminds me of some of Amber's processing, too.

    Steph, I definitely prefer the closer crop of the family that you posted here compared to the more pulled back edit in the other thread.

    #2 her face could maybe be just a touch brighter. Great eye contact and the sun in her hair is beautiful.

    #3. Beautiful, I love it.

    #5. I like the comp, colour and light. Well done

    I think these are all beautiful and I am jealous of the sharpness you achieve. I think #5 is absolutely fabulous!!!!! and I LOVE the color in all of them especially #2 and 3.

    In #4 I would have liked to have them sitting to the camera-right of that tree, to sort of compose the gorgeous tree into the shot better.

    #1 feels a bit tight but not sure if farther away would be better or not.

    Thank you guys! I got incredibly lucky with that tree. It was the only one left with color and any leaves. The next morning, I looked outside (this was at MILs house where we stayed) and all of the leaves were on the ground. Not a single one left in the tree!

    #1 is a little tight, I agree. There was a red bush to the left of the frame that I cropped out. I gave her all original crops (minus straightening) so she could decide how she wanted it in print.

    This is exactly what I would have said! I am loving your coloring here. Your light here was fantastic! You rocked it in my opinion!
