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

Thanks Phil Indeblanc, I lit it with Broncolor lighting, using mainly standard dishes and honeycomb grids. But not directly onto the subject. I use a bunch of diffuser paper around the setup to eliminate too much specular highlight and blowing out of the whites in the image. The lights are positioned around the setup, moved in closer and distanced to create the right gradient of light seen in the ring shanks.

I hope this answers the question. I don't use just soft boxes as it is not enough control for me.

One of my images currently in the "In/Visible Borders" Exhibit in Santa Fe. The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission’s Community Gallery.  An abandoned Curio Shop along Rt. 66 in AZ. Curated by Mary Anne Redding. It is up through February 21.

Quite dramatic. I miss New Mexico.

Cool splash! You should let us know if it gets sold on ImageBrief.

One from last weeks shoot...

.. in the restaurant at the Ice House hotel, in the west coast Irish town of Ballina.


So they feed ghosts too? Nice shot.

Here is one from the Ice Hotel near Quebec City, which is made entirely of ice including the beds and glasses at the bar.

Maybe you could try to use oof glasses/bottles or something with sparkle, but then oof stuff probably isn't what clients really want to pay you to give them; I'd thought of those napkin-art works some restaurants delight in offering you - those things you fear opening out in case you cut your wrist on them or, worse, remove an eye. But nothing, really that demands the human presence too close to camera. Your people are just at the right distance to give scale.

Oh the (relative) joy of unpaid work!

Having said that, it does need something here in the foreground - so not sure what I'd do, if I were to shoot something like this again someday.


How about semi-transparent ghosts instead of invisible ones?  ;)

Yes, that's the bottom line.

So we made a few suggestions and then left it up to the client and their marketing people to make the final call - as I had only a few minutes of daylight left to play with here, to capture this and the other variations which included staff in the background.

Away, 3 years web use is all they are currently talking about right now - so I'll not lose sleep over it - as this is the image they are saying they want to use a lot more...

.. which is okay with me.



With that ambience, who could blame them? Lovely site -at least in your photograph it is, which is job well done!

is anyone shooting anything or just poring over the minutiae of large cmos sensors and cogitating monthly board meetings at phase/hassleblad?

Nobody ever posts in or cares about the "Non-pro" thread, so I guess I'll post here. :)

Synn, good attitude, even better photo. Don't you think that perhaps the skin tones would have been better if you'd shot it on a D800 ? - and, NO, you don't have to answer that ...

Lot of really nice architectural photography posted, Ashley & Antonio. 

Now if only no one will post an image of a half nude sexy lady, maybe we will get some more comments.   :D
