Thread: Senior Photos-Tennis
04-11-2011, 11:53 AM #1
Hey all, I did a session that was a little different for me yesterday, trying to build up my portfolio in the senior area. I will be working with this girl in a couple of areas. In a few weeks when it really greens up, we're going to do photos of her horseback riding, but yesterday, we did tennis photos of her. I was feeling very out of my element at first. I am a little rusty on the outdoor/natural light thing. But I am really happy with some of the results.
Here are a few of my favorites. More are on flickr. CC is always welcome. Thanks for looking.

I think some more serious ones would have added a little to the shoot. Always smiling is just as bad as never smiling.

2nd to last shot (through the net) is my favorite! Love the out-of-focus net and her expression. Great image.
Try shooting with a telephoto at the long end of the zoom range and a wide aperture. This may require you backing off a little, but it'll throw the background out of focus a bit more. This is an easy and quick way to add some visual interest & depth to shots like the second and last photos!
