Kiehl Family Photo Shoot

Did I fool you?  It's not the Kiehls 5.0, it's the Kiehls 3.0 - my brother-in-law, sister-in-law and niece!  They wanted an updated family photo, so we did a shoot yesterday in the Curran Apple Orchard across the street from our house.  It was a unbearably muggy cloudy day, which made for great lighting.  I wanted to use my new 18-135mm lens, but was afraid I wouldn't have an f-stop low enough to create that great bokeh (soft, blurry background).  However, I found that using my fixed 35mm, stopped down to f/1.8 made it very difficult to get all three people in focus (since they're at different depths).  I took the first several with the prime lens, then switched to my new one.  You'll see in the photos of them on the blanket, that my 18-135mm stopped down to f/3.6 still made for some great bokeh.  Now enough of this photography mumbo-jumbo.  Check out my super cute relatives!
