The fourth one and then the third one of the second set. She is cute...You gotta remember that even if she isn't that cute you can make the difference through composition...In this instance her good looks made it easier for you. LOL

Nice and sharp, with good contrast and color. Just shows want you can do with a really good lens and the *istDS.

Hi Nols,

What a great opportunity! -- was it all just using natural light, or could you use reflectors and fill? Someday I might have the confidence to try something like this. . . but I'd prolly find a way to make a pretty girl look like a troll. . .

@ Tom/Dawg - Thanks for viewing. I'm eagerly awaiting our next amateur pictorial. They said next time it was going to be a poolside shoot. Yipee!!!

@Scott : I had my Sigma DG super mounted but kept it off most of the time. One of the guys insisted on using a handheld reflector with the gold side. I would have preferred just using the white side as this would've made pp easier. Since we did'nt have any helpers, we just took turns holding the reflector.

BTW, I was comparing my posted shots with rest of the group (all Canon users from 350Ds to MarkIs with L glass) and I'm proud to say that my 3 year-old Ds and FA 50mm can definitely stand to to toe with these more expensive gear.

I really enjoyed shooting this pair. If there was something our amateur group was good at - it was flirting with the models and making them laugh.:lol:

Nols another part of the already great series.

Got the idea that "amore" has the most experience of the two, and I like those the best.

Great work - Ronny

They are all great but I like the candidness of the second shot.

Gorgeous model well photographed, even the casual shots look great. I especially like the second post with the gold "hat", very nicely done. There are no "bad" DSLRs when regarding image quality, the more expensive "pro" models just give more bells and whistles, sturdier construction and greater choice in new lenses (although the new DA* lenses are narrowing that gap).

Lets face it, you deserve at least 80% of the credit (if not more), because as long as the camera is apropriate for the task it is the mind of the photographer that creates the image, not the contents of his camera bag.

Great job

Ira

Nice shots, I like the pose on the bench the best but they are all quite good.
