Prom season means Portraits
The biggest challenge I had today was two teenagers that did not want to have their photographs taken by their parents. I think the trick was to take a lot of photographs and hope one of them would turn out. This seemed to have worked, and I like this photo. The back wall was about 6 foot behind my son and his girl friend. We also moved the ferns off the floor to add a little green to the background. I used a small fstop to blur the background, and I just happen to catch a very nice smile on both of them.
- Take a lot of photos
- Use a tripod for portraits
- Flash did not work well for me. I think if I had more time, and some of the bounce methods it might have worked well, but my time was very limited.
- I used an Aperture Priority and allowed the exposure time to select itself.
