There is a lot written about the new Senior Portrait. I think the new senior portrait is in fact just a thoughtful environmental portrait of a young person who happens to be entering their last year of high school. It is nice to see the personality of the individual come out, instead of putting them in the box of the classic black v neck top on a blue background head-shot. Here is my first take on it. Sara was shot with my Canon 5D Mk II and a 580EXII flash. I used a Coco flash attachment to create a softer ring flash. In the first photo there is a strong backlight from the sun. The second photo was taken in the shade just using the ring flash.
