    Beach Portraits!

    It always amazes me how I spend the time to make sure everything is right, nothing in the background, nothing distracting and when I process the image I find a stupid weed in the middle of the frame and up front where you would think I would of seen it! Such is life, fortunately the parents loved the picture. I took this picture a couple of years ago and the family ordered some more this past month. It always pays to keep those files!

    Kelvin,
    If these were my girls, I would be more than happy with this picture; weeds and all.
    Well done.

    I see you used some 'Fill-in' lighting as the shadows are coming forwards -- was it by flash or a reflector ?

    I used a flash as a fill for the shadows

    With those two, I would have to say "what weeds?" In fact I didn't notice them until you mentioned them. Love the white dresses and the white sand.

    Thanks, the parents didn't even mention them and neither did I!, But it's a thing that I notice. Again, thanks for the input!

    If one can have a starfish, why can't the other have a weed?
    A smashing pair.
