Senior Portraits | Sharry - Chicago Fine Art Wedding Photography

Downtown

Last week I was lucky enough to shoot senior portraits of Sharry.  To say she is natural and easy going would be an understatement.  Meg and I had an absolute blast trekking around Downtown Crystal Lake, Il (softbox in tow!) capturing Sharry's unique personality and natural beauty.

Toes In The San

After hitting a couple places downtown, we decided to head over to Crystal Lake (the actual lake for which the city is named) and shot a little on the beach area before the sun finished setting.  One of the reasons I love what I do is the freedom it presents.  While I don't mind dressing up or wearing formal attire when the occasion calls for it (and it often does in photography!), I personally just love to be comfortable.  There are not that many jobs which allow you and your client to collaborate with your shoes off and toes in the sand!  Not a bad day at the office!

Before You Go

Before you go, I just wanted to says a few things about the tech side of these shots for those who are interested (but not too much, because I want you to stay awake!)

  • Focal length: I shot everything at one or two focal lengths.  50mm and 85mm.  However, take into account that I shot on a Canon with an APS-C crop sensor.  So...even though I shot with a 50mm and an 85mm, my focal length was more in the range of 80mm and 136mm.
  • Aperture: For most shots I shot at an f/2.8 and went as closed as f/3.5 and as open as f/1.4)
  • Lightshapers and Flash:  For lighting I primarily used a 24x36 inch softbox with a manually controlled Vivitar 285 speedlite inside.  Additionally, I used a 5-1 reflector for light cutting and fill light.

That's it! Look for more posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!
