A year of self #41 – Walkabout

I’m taking a Canon 24-105mm f/4 for a test drive right now. Current owner is offering it at an extremely attractive price. He brought it to me this morning and at lunch I took it on a walkabout. So far I’m quite impressed. It is fast and the glass is very, very good.

Model Shoot: Maternity

Kayla is expecting in about two months and posted on one of the Facebook photography groups I frequent that she was interested in getting some maternity shots done for her portfolio. We met, hit it off, and will be working together over the next couple of months to try out various techniques. Last Sunday, I met with Kayla and her husband, Cory, to do a ‘getting to know you’ shoot.

I shot these in a natural light studio on a dark and rainy day, so my ISO was averaging 800 and I shot fairly wide open (with a tripod…no hand-held for this session). I like the softness of these images.

Here are a few.
