Friends |

I still have more Costa Rica pictures to post (surprise, surprise), but I recently had the opportunity to do a photoshoot with some friends for their Christmas card, and got some really nice shots that they graciously allowed me to post on my blog. I know nothing at all about making people comfortable in front of a camera, and especially not young children, so this was a bit of a challenge. But I think I was able to get some good shots:

1/400s, f/4.5, ISO-400, 50mm

This shot was complete luck, but I love how it turned out:

1/200s, f/4.5, ISO-400, 50mm

I really like this black-and-white style with the blown-out background (I had to photoshop the background a bit to get it pure white):

1/200s, f/4.5, ISO-400, 50mm

And this is the photo that they actually ended up using for their Christmas card:

1/400s, f/4.5, ISO-400, 50mm
