Or cars.

It seems that even when it's not CGI it's mimicking CGI.

I find that so odd, modern manufacture pretty much requires them to have a complete 3D rendering of the entire car, which could theoretically be imported into an app like 3dsmax or Maya and then you can do whatever.
If going through the whole trouble of actually having to shoot a car on-location, wouldn't it be because the manufacturer desires an "earthly" feel? Is there any advantage over a render that you can output to any size you like with just a couple mouse clicks?

An editorial designer, good friend of mine says all the time that CGI imitates photography and that now photography imitates CGI. :)

Hello,

One of my car shots  I like cause of its simplicity.

Love the Vette shots Jim.

Cheers

Scott, I think this post is one of the nicest shots I seen of yours.  Great composition and good, defining light.  I would have taken the can lights out of the ceiling and I'm on the fence about the far chairs but it really sets up well, I love the detail in the chairs.

Simon, It's clean I guess and shows the product but I'd prefer something more dynamic.

Jim, a Focus can't look dynamic; its the epitome of current jelly-mould design. Only the older Civic or perhaps an Auris could match it for lack of dynamic exuberance.

From the company that gave us the GT and the Mustang, it beggars belief where they have sunk. The last vaguely dynamic machine they produced in Europe was the previous Escort RS thing with the high rear spoiler.

They may well go very quickly and safely, these newer cars, but they look like dog turds just dropped.

And to think I still buy their product!

It's those friggin' beads; they never stop clickin'!

Yes, I recognize the girl as one of Coot's favourites, and she'd be one of mine too, had I but the chance. She has no idea what she's missing! (Joke.)

B/white can be so refreshing once in a while; it can remove the falseness of modern 'skin' and takes us more deeply into the imagination, which is where dream-peddlers always reach. Thank God. It could almost be European...

Beautiful combination of elements that go to produce a great image. Love it.

Ah Keith, my penultimate penthouse neighbour was a friend of Verushka's family... There were indeed two sides to WW2, but not all of them perfectly clearly defined.

Memories of Blow Up and also of Verushka standing, naked and painted to suit the background, in a forest. Wood for the trees?

What's also quite intriguing, apart from the girl, is the immediate background: it looks like grain, but also makes me think of a sheet of glass between the subject and background... making one think like this is surely another sign of a successful image. One is driven to thought!

Nice; it's that background effect at work again, but stronger. I think I've figured out that she's sitting hard up against a large window?

Since the background effect is stronger in the close-up, I am thinking it isn't grain at all, but the glass doing its thing. If it was not a close-up but just an enlargement from a similar sized image as the first, then yes, it could be a film grain effect enlarged due to, well, enlargement of the image.

Like I said, makes you think.

I thought I'd post some of my architectural photography here.
It's a bit different from what you might be used to; I try to shoot what is the architect's choices and also what I like in architecture.

This was commissioned, in a sense. I contacted the architect while still building, he had no collaborating photographer, was happy with my portfolio, I gave a quote, got the job.

Okay, from another calendar on Kodachrome 64 pro, this time left in peace in colour.

Shows how important other people can be: never would have got to this island without external help by the guy who owned a strip of it.

Some things and some people you never forget in this lfe.

Rob, one word keeps coming to my mind looking at your photographs: organic. That is to say, all natural, sea, sand, sky and a girl. No "pesticides" in the form of a production crew and plastic post-processing. And no silicone (I presume). Nature at its best.
