"Why have you chosen to use the 200F2 wide open?"
Because I can. ;-) Actually, I want a look that is not easily duplicated. No plug-in can create this look. It's not easy, and it's not cheap, which helps keep my style unique. Also, my clients really like this look. And since beauty is in the eye of the checkbook holder, I like it, too.
"What do you use to fire your 580s?"
I use an ST-E2 with RadioPoppers.
Your images are truly stunning, almost shocking. I'm afraid that my head was stuck inside the box. To me, the term "senior portraits" conjures up formal studio type shooting with greater depth of field so that more of the subject's head is in focus.
I understand how that lens could produce the so-called "cut out look" when the subject is so sharp in the areas that you have choosen to be in focus, and the backgrounds have such creamy bokeh. I have seen that effect, to a lesser degree, in some of my sports shooting when the subject is far removed from the bg.
