5DMKII + 85mm f/1.8. 1/200 @ f/4.0, ISO 100. 430EX +umbrella. MUA: Mika.


Second of three shoots I shot on Saturday using the same one-strobe set-up.


I don't often photograph guys, so I often forget how tall they are. I had to get Jay to crouch down and lean against a wall so I could get a decent angle and even then i was on my tippy-toes. I usually carry a little stepping stool, but i forgot and unfortunately 5" heels aren't practical photographer's shoes. :P

    Very nice Lisa. Do you ever use ND filters so that you can shoot with a shallow DOF and still use the lights?
  • Aniruddha Mandke 5y

    i like the crisp bokeh at the back! neatly composed.
    lol @ the description!!
  • Aimee Giese 5y

    the tree is just perfect in back.

    That 85mm 1.8 gives great bokeh. Nice portrait.
