My wife Taunya serves with the Young Women of the Yreka Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She asked me to take some portraits of the young women to put up on their bulletin board.
ISO 100, 85mm, f/2.0, 1/125sec
I took these photos against a black curtain with an off camera flash, through an umbrella. Miriam was a trooper as I used her as my lighting guinea pig. She was patient while I took a bunch of shots adjusting position of the flash, messing with the flash compensation and the height of the stand.
ISO 100, 85mm, f/1.8, 1/125sec
As I usually do with studio flash portraits, I shot these photographs on manual exposure. That way once I established an exposure I liked it wouldn’t change on me mid shoot. I was using my 85mm 1.8G portrait lens. I love this lens for head shot portraits, it’s so clear and gives great bokeh.
Taunya wants to put the photos up on the board in black and white. I kind of like them in color myself…..
Although the B&W look pretty good as well.
Well here are the rest of these beautiful young ladies. Let me know which you like better the color or the B&W.
