Today's maternity shoot.
« on: February 20, 2018, 12:51:17 AM »
Now that we are here in Texas there is more opportunity than in the Nevada desert. Thanks to Shannon and John. All shot with Canon's wonderful EF 24-70 f/2.8L II

I don't do any skin smoothing, partly because I prefer a more natural human look and partly because my editing skills are horrible. It's just a hobby. :)

These for me, are hard to shoot well.  Having said that, I really like the last two a lot.  Great job!

Thanks Scott. I don't like the high key style myself, but I guess they want what they want. I'd have much preferred to shoot in lighting like the next to last photo by the brick wall. I think I could have had more light on that background too. Thanks again. :)

These are very good photos.  There is no reason to do skin smoothing for these.

I'm a big fan of yours, so you have no idea what the complement means to me. Thanks so much.

She's got great skin. I try to stay away from skin smoothing as much as possible. I can do that because this is just a hobby for me. I prefer a natural look and smoothing is hard to do without the product ending up looking like plastic. No skin is that perfect.
