September Challenge, week 2 (couples portraits)

September Challenge, couples portrait

This is my week 2 submission to the September Challenge.

This week we’re shooting with a “couples portrait” theme. I had planned this shot out for about an hour leading up to the perfect time to shoot. In our backyard, we  have the small vine growing behind my kids. The sun was starting to get low in the sky, giving me a great light from just over their shoulders. Made for a nice rim light. Then I used my Vivitar 285hv, triggered with Pocket Wizards, just camera left. I shot the Vivitar through a nice white umbrella, to diffuse the light a bit.

What do you think?

  1. This is my first time submitting for your challenge. I look forward to learning more from doing the projects you assign. Great photo BTW. I struggle most with photographing children because those around me are at the rapid age of two…very difficult to keep up! 🙂
