Thanks Will! I love learning! I have been shooting only manual since Xmas now with flash and I'm really liking it! It has actually made my shooting so much more easier if that even makes sense. I can't get over the flexibility I have now and the control is very easy to deal with on the fly even with 2 young kids moving around so quickly.

Here's one from a year and a half ago I just got around to processing.

Will... be honest now.... You only became a photographer to get hot women to pose for you.

Doesn't help, though. She was in high school at the time.

Oh, don't feel bad. A lot of models start in their teen years and they are very beautiful. It's not uncommon to have their mom right behind me during the shoot - like in this shot below that has nearly 15K views on Flickr.

I'd much prefer a swimsuit shot but it's cold in the Northeast

Not a professional, but sometimes I'm lucky and get a good shot.

How do you guys just keep in certain colors in a picture? I know it is done is photoshop with layers, but was wondering if it is possible in lightroom? I didn't know if you would have to convert to black and white first and then brush in what you want back, but wasn't sure. Any advice from you guys?

I like this thread alot. Great shots everyone!

There are a couple different methods to do it in lightroom. One of the easier ways it with desaturation/saturation brushes. Another method is to go into the colors panel, and selectively desaturate only certain colors. (then touch up specifics with a brush)
