@Eddy - I really like the first shot, but my only problem is I get distracted by her feet. She has a lovely face yet I wonder what is growing out of her head.

Last thursday I was in a park looking at the fall colors and I saw this young lady pass by. I thought I would love to take some pictures of her but I don't know her and never did something like that (ask a stranger to take their picture). So I thought what can she say... No. Well, a man got to do what a man got to do. With my business card in hand and my A700 - 70-200 in the other hand I went and asked.

So here are some of the pictures I took in the short lapse of time that I had with her. Now please keep in mind that I did some portraits before but with family members mostly and it is much easier to ask people you know to pose in this or that way than it is to ask a stranger (that is how I feel anyway).

#5

#6

#7



The last 3 pictures may seem a bit over exposed... well they are. I simply forgot about the fact that when you rise the popup flash (which was the only flash I had) that it limits the speed to the max sync speed (1/250). Since I was in aperture mode then everything is locked to what ever it is set and in bright sunlight can/will cause overexposure.

In order to repair/correct these pictures I tried to turn them into B&W.

Hope you like them
