Portrait in the Park with Yemi || Nigeria Portrait Photography

August 27, 2010
Ok - like any self-respecting addict with an expensive habit to feed, getting new gear always puts me on an immense high and so I found myself one fine day in good 'ol Milton Keynes with 2 new lenses (photogs: 85mm 1.8 and 16-35mm 2.8), so what's a girl to do but grab her nearest willing victim and head out to the lake to test out my gear.
It was a fabulous combination of gorgeous weather, a picturesque backdrop and of course a rather handsome subject (but sshh don't tell him I said so). The shoot was done in under an hour and Yemi was a great model, so looking forward to shooting him again soon. 
Photogs can keep reading while everyone else can skip ahead to the images...I have to say I am very much in love with my 85mm, which is a solid lens. One day when I'm all grown up - I hope to upgrade to the rather costly f1.2 but till then the f1.8 is pretty much everything I need in a portrait lens - it's fast, sharp and pretty lightweight too. I'm still warming up to the 16-35mm and haven't quite found its sweet spot yet but we'll get there.

  4. Nice work, I think some shots require a reflector to fill the shadows in the eyes, but on the whole you have managed to que and shape the light round your subject.
