Hi All

Here are a few shots taken on our pauanui holiday. the sun was very harsh on the outdoor shots and i didnt want to carry the cam around too much so we just ran with it.

really like #2....the pose and glance are captivating.

too bad about the glare...but your gf (does said GF have a name??:?) did a great job of not squinting. Tougher than it looks! a CP is an immense help. unfortunately a decent one is about the same price as the lens itself (in the 50mm's case)

but it really works wonders.

very nice work on the last one, too, blowing out the bg.....nice!

hello lynne

Yea, we took the shots quite late in the day, but as we werent used to the pauanui light, it was still very bright at around 5-6ish in the evening night which is wen we took the shot.but we got there, saw the light and though ahh lets do it anyways...

thanks again lynne, im also a fan of your work. new lighting looks great

I agree with the other posters, I really like the pose etc in #2 and what an inventive idea with the white window shot.......really effective. Anymore fromthat shoot? Really cool idea.

Looks like you had some cracker weather on holiday!

Great work as always :-)

yea in number thought to go for a more powering (i guess that the word) pose as i thought the pp works would end up giving a harsher end result. so i sorta wanted it to compiment. Thats also why i chose the angle comp.

i actually have alot more taken in front of teh window. I was quite pleased with teh results. I still question myself now if i should have used a fill flash. Hmm.

i might post some up on another forum once i chrun through them

and yea, the weather was great. not as hot as aussie im sure but great for NZ.



thanks again for your comments

Ken

Hi Ken,

I love all of these. Great idea on the last. I just purchased an 85mm 1.8 (for sports)and am now contemplating the 50mm.
