The Decision is Made
Out of the 300 pictures I took for my cousin's senior pictures this is the one she ended up choosing. I just hope it turns out looking good in the yearbook. My favorite was the closeup shot of her face, but I can totally relate to not wanting a huge picture of your face in the yearbook for eternity. This one is pretty and doesn't shout "look at me", so it definitely works for her.
I learned so much from doing this shoot. One, if it is glaring bright outside, find a place with diffused light to take the pictures. Two, that shot in front of the pretty flowering bush that moms always want doesn't work so much for senior pictures, try going somewhere unique. Three, if you decide to take pictures under a tree make sure that there are no splotches of light on your subjects face. They are impossible to remove in post processing. I thought I had a fourth, but it is 10:30 at night and I still have a paper to write for tomorrow. Goodnight :)
edit: Four, it helps to have a pretty subject :)
