Interesting. Sympathetically done, too (apart from the lights).

Great project (hate those tables....)

Okay, one of my last commercial shoots, for a friend's sales brochure for her yacht.

Nikon F4s, Kodachrome 64 or Velvia 50 scanned via CanoScan FS4000US.

Location: off Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain.

Rob, you did good.  How many images did you use for the composite?  :) :)

Another from the Clarke County Wetlands Park in Las Vegas NV by Dekker Perich Sabatini in late afternoon light.

I prefer the after sunset version, but this is nice.

Me too, but I try and need to offer my clients a lot of variety for their various requirements. Most of my clients are architects and need images for marketing and design competitions etc. Therefore I need to cover a building thoroughly. Rather than just boring documentary photographs of various angles I always try to capture them in good luscious light.

As I can't even remember whether it was Kodachrome or even Velvia, you are asking too much of this addled brain!

Just pleased that I managed to catch a bit of atmosphere, though even that strikes me as rather a sad one, mirroring the reality of the need for the shoot.

Age is a bugger because it doesn't come alone, but drags along a host of tiny siblings with funny medical names. And mostly you can't see them until they bite, by which time it's too late.

Oh well, it's good while it lasts - if you're lucky!

... the rendition of circular objects such as the lampshade in the second image and its relationship to the table beneath...

Gosh, I was seeing exactly the same on the same image and it really disturbed me. I wanted an eraser to remove it.

Nice light outside as we were wrapping our interiors shoot...



God i  love Chicago.

I think it's the prettiest city in America, if it just wasn't so damn cold.

My studio was just behind the Wrigily Building, across the rive in the old Stone Container and later Crain communications building., on the 15th floor.

Use to have lunch in the summer one the columns on the roof.

Totally drives me nuts, but it's a function of perspective.  If you made a mechanical drawing of the same composition from the camera position (to accurate scale) the circles would render with the same distortion.  Sometimes I do correct for this by rotating the camera until the round object is centered in the lens and then shifting the back to retain the same composition...  I did this just yesterday, but it's impossible when composing a 1 point perspective that is square to the architecture.

Actually the linear elements in the shot show the same degree of "distortion".  We just don't perceive it as much as we do with circles.

Sure, we used 4 diffusion screens like you see in the image, 2 soft boxes, one large to cover the back and top screens, one medium form the side and 2 raw lights that were used alternately depending on the ambience of the shot. Main power was the left one.

Very cool, but where was the camera? I imagined the camera was above the centre of the image and looking down vertically but that would mean having the camera on an arm/bracket underneath the top screen and there does not seem to be enough room and you have not cut a hole in the top screen for the camera to poke through from above the screen.

There is a "spare" tripod in front of the table. Was the camera on that and was it a technical camera that you some how used tilts and shifts to get the top-down look?

Look at the wine glasses, it's not a level overhead shot.
