Recent Professional Works
« on: October 17, 2008, 02:19:52 AM »

Many photographers here are professionals, who count their life on their works.
Since this is a professionals' forum in some extent, I think if we have a thread which people could post their proud works here, and have a place to talk about them, all users here would benefit.

So let's focus on the technics, not the equipments; the art side, not the hardware side.
In the end you are what you shoot, not what camera you use.

And if you like, you can add who are the clients, what's the layout,  where is your inspirition comes from, and how you did it.
Of coz you could just post a image but say nothing, it's ok because just enjoying a great picture is already good enough  .

Edit:We don't care whether it's a commissioned work or a self promotion(personal) one, as long as you are serious and proud of it, it would have a place here!

I'll start with some pics for Harper's Bazaar, the editor wants some shiny effects, so I did this (still not finished retouching):

I like the head shot, especially the moody color and big aperture.

to Thierry: thanks a lot:)

Dear Rainer,

beautiful one again. I like the distortion and the resulting "spin". Attracts like an undertow.
Few colors - actually red and cyan - well balanced.
A bit scary and gloomy but without pointing out this ambiance too much...
Like it very much!

do you use a color managed webbrowser?

Firefox has CMS. Did you enable it?
CMS in Firefox must be activated by the user ... at least in the beta versions you had to activate it manually (maybe in the final release that's default).
adress - type: about:config
press enter
confirm warning
Look for the entry: "gfx.color_management.enabled"
set "true" (or just doubleclick)
edit: restart firefox

Maybe this solves it... ?

I shot this for an editorial.  

Edited:  Now that I see it after uploading to LL, color is off, I think its in ProPhoto RGB. Too magenta in the highlights, too bronzed out in the mids. Its a little dark as well.  This is a JPEG that came back from prepress.

Here's a couple more of a 1937 Peugoet I shot last summer.  It's just recently slowed down enough for me to work on a few things that are more passion than profit.  Even though the car looks a bit out of place in the overhead I think it still works with the rest of the series (shown in the first Recent Works thread).  Jim

Really nice.  

My father is a car collector.  These old Peugeots are really beautiful.  My father has several 1935 Hudsons, a Hornet and a Terraplane, among others.  He had a Terraplane shot a few years ago in LA, I wish you had shot it!

Jim:
It's great to see your excellent works again. I just watched your whole website, it takes me 2 hours..and I want to say I really love your works, especially the vintage series. They are just perfect curves, perfect highlights and perfect color. Oh and I love Jimi Hendrix too!  He is my hero when I was a lead guitar in a college band.

Just two questions:
1.how do you avoid yourself to appear in the reflective surface? or do you retouch them off?
2.the second photo you post, is it a composition or you just shoot it under the sun?

Thanks again for sharing!

Regards
Dustblue

Thanks for all the positive comments!  I really appreciate them.  To answer Dustblue's questions,  the vehicles were shot in my studio (there's a picture of it in the Studio thread) and the images were assembled and retouched (by me).  The fender detail had a variety of tripod legs to remove and the overhead actually was two shots with my light bank lighting either side of the vehicle and then the two captures blended together.  Dustblue, my website is in the process of a major overhaul and in a couple of weeks will have a considerable amount of new content.  By the way, the first concert I ever attended was Jimi Hendrix, he played at the Masonic Temple in Detroit in 1968.  I was in bands too, luckily for me I traded my bass guitar for an old Nikon F!  Thanks again, Jim
