Family Photo Shoot on Overcast Day

Family Photo with Tree in Background

Family Photography by Pierce Brunson

Results from a photo shoot on an overcast day.  My goal for 2014 is to use my 70-200 2.8 “all world” lens. In this video I actually say that I will be using that lens and show you the results.  Well, I chicken out and head back to my trusty 28-135.  Oh well.

The key here is taking the images they want.  They wanted traditional images with a nice background. I think we accomplished that.  I also used my 580EX II at 20 feet away on +2. I have to have it there when I shoot at F-11.  I wasn’t too happy about the location as it has been overgrown and a bit too woodsy for my tastes but today there were some nice shots to capture in this area.

Canon 50D

ISO 500-800 (Which I hate going that high)

F-stop 9-11 (I shoot at these ranges to get a nice look at the sky, on a grey day you need to get as much detail as possible)

Shutter 125

Flash: Canon 580EXII +2 at a distance of 15 feet.
