the final test :) | kalispell child photographer

so, i did some other test, but didn't didn't have time to share them. anyway, i'm still testing out 2 lenses and i have made my mind up, but i thought i'd still show these! :)

if you visit my blog, i'm sure you recognize this little girl....
well, i dragged her brothers out with me this time too :) i adore these kids with all my heart.
they are like my own (and best friends of my own). they are super fantastic!!
thanks e for letting me play with them!!!

as for the lenses....all of the photos with color block border on them are one lens and all the photos with no color block edge are from the other lens.
thought i would mix them all up this time.
{also, if you are wondering what i was using and what my thoughts were, shoot me an email.
i'm happy to chat!}

Wow. I hear people complain about winter light and how dead things look -- blah, blah blah. Obviously it can be done with amazing results. These are so gorgeous and have such an interesting look, they completely stand up and maybe eclipse the sunny spring pics. Love them.

Courtney said...

First off, congrats on the feature. I LOVED those pictures. You did an amazing job! I love this second set. I think maybe you played around a little more with your f-stops so it's harder for me to try and determine which pictures I think came from which lens!! Beautiful children and images!!

Tanzyn said...

I like the pics without the color block better. I wonder if it's the same lens I chose the first time. You'll have to let us know soon. :)
