I have done some shots for my friends before but this was the first time I did a 12yr old boy. Give me a 12 yr old girl and I could come up with 100 ideas but a boy?
As a mother of 4 boys this should be in the bag for me but I was still nervous wondering if he was at that (This is so dumb mom age) Wellhe was a little shy but after I asked if he knew how to skip rocks in the river he opened up.
Here are a few of the shots I got. All edited in lightroom. cc please
These were taken with my new tamron 28 75mm 2.8lens
Slight elbow chop in the first, but doesn't bother me too much...he looks very comfortable. Could possibly bump up color just a little bit more!
I love the idea of this one and I think he will too. Technically, I think focus is on is hat and a little glare on the glove, but his eyes still draw me in... I like the perspective!
I would like to see a different crop on this one. I think there is nice exposure on his face given the shadow from the helmet...would like to see a closer crop OR a fuller view.
I think you did a great job!!! Can't wait to see more from you!
Thanks for the cc I always look for hand and foot chops but I nedd 2 remember elbows as well. The shot with the helmet was the in camera crop and since he was in the shade I moved him... so it was the only one I took. I did crop in tighter. Do you think this is better or no?
Katie, I LOVE the lens. Just looking thru my pics on my camera I can tell which were taken with my 50mm and which ones were taken with the tamron. I was a bit nervous cause after the lens shipping and my warranty, it was a little over 550.00. As soon as I took my first shot I realized it was worth every penny! I took 4 months to talk myself into hitting buy and now I wish I had done it sooner!
Amy, thankyou I did not notice that right away but I will look for it more. This board is really responsible for helping me grow!
Candace, I do like the crop better. I saved it like that for the disc so thanks!
Why is he grainy and a little oof? I know my iso was 500 cause we were under a bridge but I am shooting with the 60d and it can handle that. ss was 1/200 and ap was f/2.8. to let the light in.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Oh and AMY I did get shots of him skipping rocks but not anything good. I was focused on making him feel like he was showing me something. I never told him I had 4 boys(hes Tysons friend but does not know the rest of the fam) and that I skip rocks all the time
