I had the pleasure of welcoming Jim and his 3 sons, Jonathan, Brad, and Michael as well as Ann, Jonathan's girl friend into the studio for family portraits. Right off the bat, they told me that they wanted fun and different shots. Me, too!
Enjoy looking at these. Be sure to click on each image to enlarge it.

Additionally, I processed one High Dynamic Range image. I first started with a base image in Lightroom® and duplicated it twice, once 2 stops under and once 2 stops over. I then imported it directly into Photomatix Pro® and tonemapped it using the Details Enhancer method. Setting used:
White Point .0250
Black Point .335
Saturation Highlights +1.0
Saturation Shadows 0.0
Highlights Smoothness 48
Shadows Smoothness 100
Shadows Clipping 0
I wasn't able to clear up the dirty shadowed look on the faces so I blended the base image with the tonemapped image to reveal the faces and background but kept the detail revealed in the jackets and jeans.
