I had my first couples shoot this afternoon/evening. The willing victims were Josh and Heather. Josh is my trainer at the gym and we somehow got on the subject of photography a couple of weeks ago. It turns out that they had been talking about having some pictures made and since I needed practice, you know, actually taking pictures of people, we agreed to head out this weekend.

Interesting side note before I get to the picture. Worlds Fair Park is amazingly empty on Super Bowl Sunday.

The image below is one of the two that I like the best from our outing.

This shot was made using my ring flash and I really love the light on Heather. I also discovered that I really like my Tokina 100 f2.8 macro lens for portrait work. However, I need to be a little more careful about shooting wide open with multiple subjects. The shallow depth of field made one of the two of them just a bit too soft for my taste on a few shots.
