I was asked by my Brother-in-law if I would consider doing my nephew's senior portraits. My Brother-in-law is much handier than I am and considering that I owe him for the several odd jobs he's helped me with I could not refuse. I was a bit nervous however so I studied up on portrait photography, natural lighting ( we were going to be outside ) and poses. I scouted an area (which I was already familiar with) the week before the shoot for portrait possibilities. The big day came and I met my nephew and his mother (my SIL) later in the afternoon at the nearby park I scouted. My SIL served as my assistant and she did a great job with the reflectors I brought along. It was an overcast day which had it's pluses and minuses. Here are my favorite shots. I was generally happy with the results considering it was my first time. Looking back there are a number of things I would change or do differently - it was a great learning experience. My BIL, SIL and most importantly my Nephew loved the shots. Comments and constructive criticism are welcome. I used my NEX-7 and the following lenese; Olympus 100mm 2.8, Sony SEL 50mm 1.8, Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8, and the Minolta Maxxum 200mm 2.8 and Minolta 50mm 1.4. The SEL 50mm produced the most "keepers".
