The first one I shot this couple a week ago for a engagement shoot. Fun couple to do. I have to admit I was a little intimidated. They are both taller than me. I'm 6' foot. Rudy is 6'5 and Patty I'm not sure about, but she is certainly a few inches taller than myself. What I'm getting at is I really had to work extra hard with the composition.

I shot this scene with two 28" Westcott Apollo Softboxes using two 580ex ll speedlites. First one I shot in Manual 1/2 power camera left 45 degree for the main and another camera left 1/4 power for the fill. Used an overhead scrim as well.

Camera Canon 7D
Lens 24-70mm f/2.8 L
Iso 200
Av f/6.3
Shutter Speed 1/250s
Focal Length 45.0m

You did really well on the lighting. Looks very natural AND we aren't looking up their noses so you did well on that too
Do you have anymore? Maybe one where the hand isn't sticking out of the back?

The second one is of Rudy alone. I was getting a little frustrated trying find something that wouldn't make him out like a giant, so I had him kneel down on this one and it turned out to be one of my favorites anyways.

Thanks Chance. I'm on board with ya on the hand. I cringed at first and even thought about cloning it out. They looked it over and said to print it big. Okay, no probs' right? lol.

This one I should paid better attention to the flag poles than what I did. It was the last shot of the day and it was so hot and humid for all of us. Simply put that's no excuse. I never claim to be perfect.

The one of Rudy alone rocks! Great comp on that one. The last one of the day at least there are no flag poles growing out of their heads
