Sometimes, my art photography leads someone to ask for a photo session. Though, I’d never photographed a family before. It was a field trip kind of ride to get to the location. I was amazed at the scenery. We ended up at an elevation over 3,100 feet. Mountains as far as the eye could see. It was awesome. The above photo is my favorite of the day.
Same area. I do not like using an external flash on my camera simply because (even with a diffuser to me) I can see an artificial spotlight mixing with the natural light. Rarely do I like the results. Instead, I take my chances on adjusting the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings on the camera. I did learn that an ISO of 2500 is too high, even for the 5D Mark II. The ISO here is at 1250. It seems like anything above this invites more grain (noise) than I can tolerate.
Happy Friday Eve.
