We did a senior portrait photo shoot at our COMM 316 excursion in Victor, Idaho.

On the last day of the COMM 316 epic photo excursion, the whole class set out to take senior portraits of each other. The class was divided in half, the first half modeled when the second half took photos. After an hour, the two halves switch their roles. This was when my skill of portrait photography really clicked. The ability to pose people came clear to me and I had a wonderful photo shoot session. This is part two of the girls’ senior portraits from BYU-Idaho.

This is Jenna Reeder. She is definitely a fun country girl. This is why I have her posed inside the barn at Sky Mountain Lodge. I added a strobe light to really bring her out from the distracting background behind her. My camera settings were f.3.5, 1/250 second, ISO 200. Below is another senior portrait of Jenna that I took of her leaning against the barn.

Korah went for a professional business girl look in the senior portrait session. I used two Einstein Strobe light to light Korah up from the sides. The axillary light create a professional effect. In Lightroom, I added some clarity to her her to bring the highlights out.

 

Brooke Koster‘s senior portrait:

Brooke is a fun girl to work with in the senior portrait session with COMM 316. Oh how I love auxiliary lighting. I also used a strobe light to take this photograph.  Using auxiliary lighting is one of the ways that can set you off from average photographers. Here’s another shot of Brooke:
