I did a little shoot for my daughter who is turning 18 soon. It's kind of bittersweet, Dads out there would know what I'm talking about. Anyway, here are some pics:

All of them have great DOF. Love the OOF foreground areas in #1 (draws my eyes to the center nicely). #2 & #3 have excellent light. #4 is my least favorite, I'm not a fan of photos I can tell off camera flash was used. Excellent set all in all!

On 2nd glance, #1, #2, and maybe #3 look like they could be stitches (or at least you did some post to #2 adding blur to the branch).

Beautiful set and beautiful daughter, "Dad." 1 and 3 -- nice. Looks like film (a compliment).

Wonderful set. I'm going with 2 and 4 as my favorites as well. Love that gradient and the colors in the sky in 4. I don't know how you did that with no discernible banding, especially when you resize to a smaller image for posting!

Nos. 2 and 4 are my favorites here. It all seems to come together in those two.

Thanks Johnny, yeah, the flash is a little strong on #4, I had to resort to a shoot thru.

Thanks guys for the nice comments!

David: I Just underexposed the ambient a few stops. Thanks for the kind words!

2, 3 and 4 rock it for me. I just love your lighting on this. The colors of the sky in 4 are sensational.

Thanks for the reply, that makes sense, but it seems like any time I have a strong gradient like that where you're either going from one color to another, or between really light and dark, I get really bad banding, where you don't have that smooth gradient, but you can see definite lines between the color/brightness changes. I don't know if that makes sense, but your gradient is so smooth and I can never seem to achieve that.

Thanks friscoron!

David, I get banding sometimes too. A little trick to minimize the banding in photoshop is to create a gradient layer and choose gaussian blur. Blur out the banding and then mask it off the other areas where u want to keep the detail.
