Prom 2012

Last saturday I had the great pleasure of taking some pre-prom photos of two lovely young ladies, Faith and Danielle.  The time of day was between 6pm and 7:30pm so the lighting was excellent for the most part with the sun already lowish in the sky.

The location was the Greenhorn Park and reservoir.

The camera I was using that day was my D7000 with a 50mm f/1.8D lens.  I set the camera’s ISO setting to its native ISO of 100 to assure greater detail with the least amount of grain possible.  To obtain a good depth of field with a nice amount of bokeh in the background I set the camera to aperture mode and selected an aperture of f5.6 for most shots.  The shutter speed I chose to keep subject movement blur to a minimum was around 1/200th of a sec. for most shots.

I always enjoy these opportunities to find great photo locations and poses.  They give me an opportunity to learn through doing on taking pictures of individuals and groups.
