Description

f4.8, ISO 800, 1/20th, 70 - 300mm zoom, July 4th, Dunsmuir, CA. Another of my cousin J's "Senior" Portraits. Converted to b&w & added the dreamy effect with an 8% blur.

He radiates joy and happiness in both his smile and his eyes. I really like this in B&W as well!! He's going to wind up with some nice choices for his senior pictures!! #824195

Thank you Lisa & Marcie! I will be sure to tell him that you both like these!
Actually he graduated last year but never had his senior portraits done. I did these for him so his mom would have something to hang on her wall. I've been trying to get him to model for me again to do some more, but our schedules dont meet up & he lives an hour away from me.
Thanks for the comments!
Have a great day!
