Yesterday we had the opportunity to shoot senior pictures for some Japanese foreign exchange students.  It was a great time as their Japanese teacher (at the school) kept everyone entertained as we all had a great time.  Laughter breaks all cultural and communication barriers.  Once everyone was having fun everything moved very smoothly.

The backdrop of fall colors was perfect and we couldn't have dreamed of better light.  I love taking photos during the fall.  The bokeh from the leaves is a perfect background, and a telephoto lens, compressing the image, proved to be the right choice.
