Megan / by Travis Cobb

Not much helps to make you feel older than to photograph the senior portraits of a kid you knew from when they were in diapers (she wasn't actually in diapers, but I've known Megan that long that it sure as hell feels like it). 

I've made an effort to move the way I photograph into a different direction and to expand and test my knowledge base, and Megan was the perfect guinea pig.  Now, all I want to do is to take panoramic portraits (shooting a series of 6-9 images and stitching them together to achieve a much shallower depth of field than I can achieve otherwise, more akin to how my portraits look when I shoot film).  There were a few that turned out pretty well -- and I owe half of it to Megan for not losing her cool when I kept telling her not to move when the wind was howling.

Lastly, I owe a huge thank you to Tracy and Michele, Megan's mom and dad.  They've been good friends for a long, long time.  So, thanks, Tracy and Michele.  Below are a few of my favorite frames from that Sunday morning with Megan and Michele.
