the golden hour

These images were taken during that last hour before the sun sets. It’s fabulous light and most often my favorite. Here are the manual settings that I used when photographing these beautiful sisters….

ISO: 640
shutter speed: 1/200
aperture: F 2.8
lens: canon’s 35mm 1.4L
body: canon’s 5D mark II

little sisters

When I’m photographing little people I just adore laughter and real smiles. I love images that show personality and are able to remind us years later of that sweet little laugh or how they scrunched up their nose. Yep, real smiles are the best!

ISO – 160
aperture – F 3.2
shutter speed – 1/320 second
lens – canon 85mm 1.2L
