Bumblebee

+ 4 in the comments with setup shot!

 

As promised the shot with Renee and her beautiful bicycle! This was the initial image I wanted to take and upload, but I loved a bunch from the session so I've been uploading everything :)

 

Renee is an avid cyclist and has been so kind to lend me Bumblebee while school winds down. She has another (more serious bike for her long trips) which I want to grab another portrait with sometime too!

 

I spied this lovely group of yellow bushes and thought it'd go perfectly with the bike and had the sun behind us acting as a hair/highlight/rim light and filled her in with a socked beauty dish. I used the 100mm L macro because it was too bright to shoot with the 85 even with the nd filter and I wanted to compress that background and still have bokeh and a full body portrait to really showcase her bike.

 

1st exam tomorrow evening!

 

Picked up my slide film, so scanning will begin soooon!
