Careful guys, that's my daughter, Jessica.

What a lucky and gifted man you are. I felt it, there is something special in that image. The relation between photographer and model is so important.

Best,
Johannes

Rob, I love that stuff. Are you familiar with the work of Klaus Lange?


Hi Scott,

No, I only have any deep(ish) knowledge about older guys in fashion photography and the likes. I just clicked on the site you linked - haven't looked at anything yet but will, and I laughed out loud to myself: boat's hulls!

http://www.roma57.com/cellpix.html

That's all from my 'phone, and not at all pro. I often wish that I hadn't used it, and hadn't been so lazy as not to carry a camera every day... lost opportunities. Anyway, the link has lots of 'found' snaps in the genre. Hope you enjoy.

However. I must declare: I became interested in that 'style' from looking at some of Keith Laban's work, which I never managed to equal, and also at gooseloft.com.

Anyway, this 'blue' one enclosed is legitimate, found material shot on the D700. I await the offers from MOMA.

Klaus is an interesting guy. He's a chef aboard a pilot boat working out of the San Francisco bay (one of only a handful of ports that still use pilot boats). When they pull alongside an ocean liner to transfer the pilot on/off, Klaus watches for these amazing bits of abstract art, steps out onto the deck, and fires away. He has a great eye!

I interviewed him back when I was a stringer for local rags:

They deleted half of my quotation marks in the online edition, hopefully some of Klaus' unique expressiveness still shows.

Here's some architecture shot in the last year or so.  Both medium format and Canon.  Jim

Lovely work Jim.

Should not matter what tools one use as long as work is professional.

Me just getting back to work from holidays.

Regards to all posters.

Rob, thanks for the plug ;-)

When I started shooting the Found Paintings images some twenty years ago it was as though folk didn’t know how to react to them. It took a while but they eventually became one of my best selling series, particularly corporate sales.

I’ve got to say it’s been the greatest fun producing them and a really good excuse to travel the Mediterranean in search of the subjects.

Keith, those are fantastic! I love them!

I am drawn to similar abstract subject matter, and I love the interplay of rust with painted surfaces.

Hi,

I've seen the site now, and think the material is pretty much what's in my mind at times too. He's fortunate that he still finds rust: here, most everything is glass fibre or wood, and the only colours come from the dead paint itself and not from a richer mixture of materials going off. I caught one small boat like that recently, but it was taken off the hard and back out to sea, the owner hoping (I think) that it doesn't see spring. Like I said before, I wish I had the energy to carry a camera instead of just a cellphone!

Just in case I didn't explain earlier: the concept is to make a painting, photograph it, and then scrape it off the base material and paint another in its place. All you have to do is keep new ideas coming. That's all.

This way, the digital file is the only thing left, and digital prints are the new artwork.

Cool, or what? Well - something to do that doesn't eat up all the walls. Also uses up those batteries and the too heavy Gitzo.

This is a go at a taste of Joan Miró; hope nobody feels insulted.

Thanks, Antonio!

Rob:  That's a porn stash, I assume. Or possibly a really big backgammon set.

very good picture. I would have pulled the planet a little more to the right. How many light you used? did you use 24ts mk1 or mk2?

Abdul, thanks. There's a lot about the styling that I don't like. My own impulse is to move the plant to the <b>left</b> a little. And the Eames chair, as well. Unfortunately I was on my own for this; my client (design/build) had already gone home for the night.

I'm using the 24TS mII. Best lens I've ever used. This was made last fall; I remember 6 lights for sure, could have been one more.

it does look like you had a lot of lights, how did you manage to set them all up just in time for the right ambient light?

Abdul, we started early. We spent maybe 60 minutes setting up, 30 minutes tweaking things, and 20 minutes or so waiting for the perfect light. I also have a quasi-daylight version of this that I was able to salvage from an early exposure, with a lot of "rescue" post processing.

You basically setup all your lights before sunset? It's very difficult to setup lights for a night scene when working in daylight, because you can't exactly see what the lights are doing. Plus when the perfect sunset moment comes I find my self scrambling to adjust lights before missing out the sky view.  One thing I thought about to counter this problem is to 1. setup the camera and prepare the space in advance 2. capture the perfect window view  3. adjust the lights without worrying about the time 4. add the window view in post.

80% of the lighting is in place before the sun hits the horizon. I try to have a pretty detailed vision in my mind for how the shot should look, so it's not too hard to figure out light placements. Wattage is another matter; that's what's being tweaked as the ambient light starts dropping.

Shot this a couple of days ago.  ISO 100, 30s at f/11 with a linear polarizer.  Use a good deal f additional lights, but turned them off at different times throughout the exposure.  I did a general raw processing for the entire image, then did a raw processing customized for the stage and dropped it in.
