Thanks Peter,

usually for portrait I use Canon 28-70 f2.8L... and many of pro-photographers says it is the best portrait lens in the world.... lucky me..... but ofcourse they are too expensive for me... I bought the lens as usedlens for 650EUR.... if I do not use this lens I only use Prime 50mm f1.8 but for these shots only 28-70.

No fill flash at all only silver reflector.

There are some other photos that i have used a fill flash but those photos are still under PSD.

Regards Zak

Do you use the canon 28-70 f2.8 or the 24-70 f2.8? Is the 28 an older lens?

How do you know which color reflector to use, gold, silver or white?

Nice shots!

Hi,thanks for reply,

considering the lens it is 100%

Canon 28-70 f2.8mm L EF Ultrasonic macro with 77mm diameter.

For now I use only silver reflector or white to have more of the natural colors specially if I do shoting late afternoon when Sun makes colors more yellow.

Here it is exif and it is similar to each photo only I change shutter speed depending of the sun but that day was a little cloudy.

I do for now only a manual shooting and always use gray card for colors and for exposure also what i find vey helpful.

Ken, I'm sure that Tamron will work excellent for so I wait new photos.... I try them. Not so heavy like this Canon which is not for all around lens.

Mate, on the full length shots have you pp'ed to enhance (further soften,blur) the oof background or is that the actual dof of the lens or a combo of both?

No, Ken, no blurring, no softening nothing, it is actual lens DOF and it was as you see only f3.5 but when I go even f3.2 or 2.8 it gets really blurry....

These shots doesn't have much PSD,

I was using in PSD only few layers for bettter contrast with levels (I do not use brightness^contrast option for me it is not good at all),

then Curves and cropping....

and just a little selective coloring or hue - saturation.

That's all

regards

fantastic stuff mate

i was concerned that a focal max of 75mm and f2.8 wouldnt be enough to soften a backing on a full length shot. these excellent shots obviously prove thateven at 47mm f3.5 it can be achieved.

Once again mate, fantastic stuff, keep the new shots coming, really enjoying your new work.

Ken
