    Haven't posted here in awhile so figured I would, and I figured I would post a lot of pictures because I jip this place a lot :) If you're an ILP member you've seen these I'm sure. I flew down to NC this weekend to visit with a photographer friend. We tortured her beautiful little girls and had a lot of fun, doing the type of stuff I don't do with clients. It was nice to get a break from all the boring Christmas shoots in December.

    I used an 85mm 1.2 on these and got at mostly 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, and 1.8 because I'm a nut.

    Thanks for looking!! :)

    10. I found this in the barn. I kind of liked it. Not everyone's cup of tea though.

    12. Sad about the limb chop, but I couldn't resist this moment. I loooove her one eye look. I got a lot of photos with one eye peeking out and it's just so endearing to me.

    Here's serious. It cracks me up and I think has to by my favorite photo of all. From the little bunched up jeans, to the one eye, to the little wave, it's just perfect to me- although I suppose it is a bit of an outtake. A friend said it reminded her of a horror film.... Hah.

    16. We let her have a little fun.

    17. These feel very WWII to me. I wanted to make them really filmy.

    Beautiful as always! 15 was my favorite, too! Love the B&Ws also.
    I believe 14 and 20 are the same?

    beautiful shots....wouldnt notice the limb chop in 12 if you cropped off the left side....would make a better comp if you did

    dont care for the last shot, only because she looks a bit too old for her age...in a bad way...i think you must be careful with contemporary child images that they dont loose their child like qualities...they grow up so fast!! (i suppose that is more of a mom comment than a photographer...your work is beautiful, but be wary of pushing the boundaries of childhood!)

    Thanks guys! Congrats on the 1.8. I'm ready to switch to the 1.2!

    Unfortunately I don't think that crop would work on 12! I cropped the heck out of that thing and tried what you said, haha and she just looked armless! :)

    I love her look on 14 and 16!!

    I have an 85mm 1.8 as well. It's hard because you have to stand so far away from the subject...still playing around!!

    How did you do your eyes in PS?

    Thanks so much everyone :) I don't touch the eyes at all. These are all very close to SOOCs- just defogs, brightened a tad bit, and sharpened for the web. Also edges were burned but that's about it. I just make sure I get lots of nice light in their eyes and tack sharp focus when I'm shooting.

    I have a full frame sensor (the 5d) so the 85mm is a lot more usable- you're not as close. It is easily my favorite lens.

    Thanks! :)

    I thought you guys might like to see what a SOOC (straight out of the camera) looks like- no editing done what so ever in lightroom OR photoshop (not even sharpened for web).

    You truely are an inspiration to me. I am lovin the work so professional. I have a 50mm 1.7 arriving tommorow and on my sony dslr thats like a 70mm so hopefully it will allow me to get similar result but I doubt it haha.
