A street scene that's going to a hospital fund raiser, still playing with the sharpening and distortion.




And another,



I didn't have a chance to bracket for a sky image when I took this and it was very overcast ( almost no sky regardless).

Here's two from last month, two different projects.  I am going to send a year end postcard out to mostly designers, architects and GCs.  Cant decided on which image to use, any suggestion?

Joe, My suggestion is to send out something that isn't a job.  Something you shot because you have a passion for what you do and which could transcend the subject matter and become a work of art.  Clients will remember this.  Jim

Thanks for the suggestion Jim, but I shoot architecture because I love to shoot architecture.  Any personal work would be of architecture and interiors as well; that is really the only thing I shoot.

AAAAnnnd.....it is safer politically. I've been down that road and had to do a whole series of postcards with an example of all my best clients work because some were jealous that I didn't favor an example of their work.

Joe, That's great, I do the same, but my point is to send out a card that is different from the projects you work on.  Still architecture, but not the expected imagery.  Kirk's got a point but I think if the work is great all your clients will appreciate it whether it's theirs or not.  Jim

I don't think there's anything wrong with sending something from an actual job.  My clients love seeing what I've done for other people.  Sure, some may be jealous if their work is not as nice as the other firm's... but they'll remember that you shoot for the architects they look up to and they'll want to use you.

I like to send out gift prints to clients at year's end, and those are personal work that have nothing to do with architecture, but I have no issues sending architectural images as well.

By the way, I like the top image... more impactful.

Happy Holidays!

Hello,

Some shots for Hyundai from a week of two back.

Nikon D800E with a Nikon 70-210mm VRII lens for the 3/4 shots and a Nikon 45mm PC-E lens for the side shot. Lighting as always Dedo

Cheers

I was for the top one too.  I have not yet been hired to shoot a high-end city residential project, so I think that one may be the best.  Also, NYC is picking up and residential seems to be where it is at right now (with the architects); going for strategy here.  Going back to Kirk's point, I send out a postcard once a quarter and the only thing I have ever heard negatively back on is that I do not credit the designer on the card.  I have since started crediting the client (or finding out who the architect is and crediting them if it was a personal work).

Hello,

This series was shot using Nikon D800E, Nikon 35mm F1.4G lens and Nikon SB900/Pocket Wizard lights with Bowens light modifiers.

These lights have a very fast flash speed so they where perfect to freezes the action. It interesting to mention but the retoucher actually added motion blur go figure.

Cheers

Great images as always Simon. I'm curious though, which of those highlights are from the Dedos ?

I have 6 of the small Dedos and one of the larger 400 series tungstens, have shot with them for years and know how precisely you can control them. But I'm looking at the highlights on the hood of the left shot, left end of the back door in the middle shot, and a few other places and seeing what looks like post work, either painting or masking.

Hi K.C.

Sorry but I am not sure by what you mean "which of those highlights are from the Dedos".

The shape and contours of the car are created by the Dedo's either by pointing the lights at the cyclorama and or directly at the car.

There is also a lot of retouching be applied to these shots as it is rare to get the perfect image straight from camera when it comes to cars.

Cheers

I was just suggesting that the retouching creates a different quality and it's fairly obvious to anyone who has shot images like this.

Great work, not a criticism, just an observation.

Hello,

Been busy lately with this high speed flash and loving it.

Nikon D800E, Nikon 70-200mm VRII lens and Nikon SB900/Pocket Wizard flash heads with Bowens light modifiers.

Added some good old grain for affect.

Cheers

Simon

Hi Ian,

If was a fun shoot.

The male model Cliff split his pants in half with all his jumps. One very fit dude.

The young woman Elizabeth Marvelly in the pink shot is also a opera singer as well as a aerobics instructor so all in all very talented.
