Hah ha ha... yeah... this is actually what I consider fun.  Pre-visualizing all the components on location, keeping them straight, lighting for them and knowing how they'll interact in post is a hell of a challenge.  From what I've seen of Jim's breakdowns, this is very similar to car photography.

That's just why I love this thread. All you pros that post here seem to enjoy what you do, and the results are magnificent, but I can't begin to imagine myself doing the kind of hard work that you folks do!

Inspiring, but daunting!

Something a little different for me...

My client had to make changes to an existing chapel to facilitate a relocated (humongous) pipe organ.  The finished image is a composite of 15 exposures.  6 or so were for an HDR layer of the blown hilights.  The rafters were lit with a head on a rolling Hi Boy that moved 6 or 7 times.  The chairs were lit one side at a time and we had strobe bouncing in the Narthex to create depth and layers. They gave us a day to do the shot.  We did this one and a vignette in half a day.  Really fun assignment!



Very nicely done. Boy would this have been a bitch with film-having attempted something similar myself many times!

Chris, It is a similar workflow and occasionally I'll apply it to my architecture as you did.  I shot a comparable room for a personal project I'm working on but it was quite a bit lighter so I didn't need additional lights.  I've attached the photograph, it's one of the few shots I made with my Arca RM3di(35mm Schneider).  I miss working with that camera but I couldn't justify it's cost when the majority of my architectural work needs to be done faster than it will allow.  I ended up trading it in for a 5Dmk3 and another 17 and 24mmT/S. 

By the way, a Cadillac project I worked on last March had a behind the scenes video produced (by Cadillac) of the shoot which then became the announcement for the car at the annual dealer show in Las Vegas.  Here's a link to my blog that has links to the videos.

Great work Jim on that. I used to photograph historic churches-had an NEA to do so in the 80's. Here is one of my more recent "cathedrals" :) Stacked stitch, 5D MII, arsenic leach mine outside Reno.

Hello. First post here (I think). Years watching. Rolleiflex T and T-max 100.


Don't know how I missed your post - anyway, better late than never.

Welcome to the scene, and I have to say, when I had my Rollei T it was well before it (or I) had the chance to do this sort of work!

Mine was usually fiull of TXP 120 - never really used anything else on 120 format other than FP3 a few times which didn't work on 120 (for me) but was great on 135... By the time T-max was out I had no more 120 cameras.

Nice tones in your shot - I never get skin like that with digital capture b/white conversions.

Nice job Chris.  Its fun shooting parts and pieces and making a frankenphoto in post.  Leads to some amazing and otherwise impossible images.

Can you imagine a single sheet of Ektachrome instead?  :)

But that's cheating, Craig: this isn't really the implied single exposure either.

Hello,

Keeping with the church theme.

Shot 3rd November 2005 with a Nikon D2x and a Tokina 12-24mm lens.

Corrected the perspective with Grasshopper ImageAline software.

A friend of mine was married in this church. After the service every one went across the road to the pub and they moved all the pews and set up tables, band, chocolate fountain and a mobile Barbeque and then had the reception. Very cool idea.

Cheers

Simon
