We photographed Emily’s senior portraits in our studio in Rockville and on location at a local park one block from the studio. The outdoor work was photographed with a Nikon D800 using a 105mm defocus lens at f2.2 and a 70-200mm Nikon VR lens at f 2.8. The studio work was with the D800 and the 105mm defocus lens at f’9. The advantage of the defocus lens is that it allows you to throw the background or foreground out of focus no matter what the f stop. Emily has a lot of theatrical experience which made the assignment loads of fun and the fall colors plus the late afternoon sunlight added richness to the background in the outdoor images.photocrati gallery
