Fall Foliage

October 19, 2010

All photographers start by practicing on their own kids, which means that a day doesn’t go by when there isn’t some sort of test shoot..  Then, eventually, family time gives way to client shoots, evenings are spent editing those shoots and memory cards become full of  other people’s children!

So this weekend I literally had to “schedule” a shoot with Jasper just like I would a client shoot.  I picked out his wardrobe, convinced my husband to come along and play wrangler, cleared my memory cards and we headed out at just the right time of day and the right time of year for peak fall foliage.

In all honesty there were a million other things we needed to do that day, but now that I have these images I can’t imagine that I almost went grocery shopping instead..

Happy Fall!

    Thanks for the kind words! I mostly shoot with the 70-200 v II outdoors – as close to the 200 end as possible which is what gives that amazing bokeh :)
