James, I am curious, on the last image - the design is clearly intricate and requires a skill, but how much "stray hair Photoshopping" could one expect from the "best" hairdresser?
Is this mostly handled in post or on the live model?

All of the hair designs require a skill.  Actually the bottom less than the top.

This is one of the hardest, because it looks simple, but simple is hard.



post work on hair should be minimal.  If it's a lot you blew it.

The last image actually doesn't have a lot of work, some on the garment, obviously some on the direction of the vignette and the coloration, very, very little on the face.

The makeup is either directed or done by my partner who is our producer but a tremendous makeup artist. She even developed her own base to match the lighting for a specific glow.

Nobody can make a face glow like Ann.

The top image I posted earlier has virtually nothing on the hair, or than cleaning up some stray hairs and lightly filling in one spot.

It actually has only a few spot clean ups on the face, though the legs needed some work because of veins that happens sometimes depending on talent.

Took the A7r out on this shoot too and it performed impressively.  This was with the Leica-R 70-180 2.8, a stellar piece of glass.

I havent ever posted here but thought i may as well jump in with a pic. The jewelry images I do are heavily worked but the quality of the file is still due to the Beginnings. Sinar P3 54H and Bron lighting. this particular client has a product that needs a lot of attention. Have a look at my site for more. http://www.deanelliott.co.za/

JIm,
Apologies for butting in, but as there has been some ambiguity on other threads plus I've just been testing the A7r, today - thought I'd quickly comment.

(1) Both C1 and Lightroom offer file support but not tethering.

(2) You can tether with the SONY Remote Camera Control App. It downloads both RAW & JPEG's (or both) to a folder of your choice. It's fast - I tried it on FF RAW's - and In addition to the usual controls, you can, via the app,  control and set:
-Drive modes (both single and continuous) , exposure bracketing,  self timer, interval and host of others which I've now forgotten.
-WB (and) WB bracketing.
-DRO / HDR
-Colour Temp
-Colour Filters
-Picture Effects (the built-in ones, if you use them)

(3) You can also apparently tether with a program by DNA software.  http://dslrsoftware.com/tethered_shoot_lr5_a7_macosx.php . Allegedly this also works with their iPad remote viewer.  I haven't yet had time to try these out. Frankly the remote Camera Control works so well that I doubt I'll bother.  Just set a 'hot' folder in either Lightroom or C1.

(4) The SONY 'multi' socket may be multi, but is in fact a USB MICRO socket. I've connected the camera with a bog standard USB micro cable (in fact a 20ft one) - and it connects/tethers with no problems.  (Though it didn't mind being connected to either the mac or one of my hubs,  it didn't work when I used a USB socket on the back of a Cinema Display).

I didn't expect it to work so well. It was rock solid. Impressive.

All best
M

** Edit:
When using “Remote Camera Control,” the following ops  are available via computer.
- Changing this product’s settings and shooting.
- Recording images directly to the computer.
- Performing interval timer shooting.
NB :  MENU → (Setup)(p4) → [USB Connection] → [PC Remote].

Manoli, I appreciate your response!  Sounds like it works well, perhaps I'll have to try one out.  Thanks, Jim

I don't normally do this type of work, but had a reason to and I'm glad I did. It was a blast to do.

Very nice Dean. Clean work.
When you say Bron, does that mean you lit these with standard heads, or perhaps Box?
