So, what happens when the mother of the high school senior you are photographing comes along for the shoot? The easy answer is to plan on including mom in on a few of the shots, right? Well, that was my Plan A, but mom didn't want her photograph taken because hair and make-up issues.

Time to go to Plan B, don't show the hair and lack of make-up. That was my suggestion during this shoot. We had the dazzling sunset so why not just do a quick silhouette of both mother and daughter?

After a few test shots, and letting mom see the back of the camera, she was thrilled with the results! Needless to say, we did deliver a few "mother/daughter images in the final order. The gorgeous sunset sure didn’t hurt either.

Camera specs: Nikon D1x fitted with Tamron 28-105mm F2.8 lens at 58mm, F 2.8 @ 1/80 second, ISO 400. Enjoy! - David

  1. It´s beautiful..=) I would love to try that one day...
    These days I´ve been trying out some of the things you taught me via your book. I love your book!! =) (captured by the light) As soon as I start to read in it, I can´t get away from it for some hours, -only if I HAVE to. So THANK YOU for making that book!

    I was supposed to try some of the things out in my first wedding-shoot just some weeks ago, but there was to little time to try out stuff, and there was a film-crew hanging over me all the time too, so I guess I should be happy just to get some pictures..=)
