Class of 2011

We had an amazing Senior Portrait Session with Amanda Curry this past weekend. We shot at my favorite location. It's a dump of an abandoned building, but makes for just the greatest backgrounds with amazing textures and light.

We used an off camera Canon Flash with a small softbox and my Rachel was the best assistant.

Rachel and the abandoned Building

I really love shooting at this abandoned Citrus Building. The contrast between the destruction, run down, dilapidated vs beauty has always appealed to me.

After purchasing my newest lens, the Canon 85mm f/1.2, this gave me the perfect combination to go along with the Canon 5D Mkii camera. The way the lens blurs the background is second to none. Shooting mostly at an aperture of 1.2 opens up the lens to its largest opening and offers the shallowest of depth of field. You have to be very careful keeping your main subject, or eyes in sharpest focus. Here are a few of the images shot with that aperture setting.
