... yes, it's been slightly blurred on purpose and grained, but for some reason the whole image, including the copy (mainly on the right), is now extra-blurred too, where it isn't on the file I transmitted to LuLa.

;-(

That photo is pin-sharp, as I'm sure everyone else will confirm. Maybe you need to get your eyes tested  ;)

the view from today's location.  Just wrapped 5 days of furniture.  Now I have a week off and then start production on a new short film.  Bisy Bisy Backson!

Thanks for the confirmation - it makes me more convinced that there's something odd going on in my computer when it deals with LuLa. Having said which, I don't find the same softening looking at other people's images on LuLa. I discount the eyes, even though I do have problems, because my images are as crisp when viewed on my LaCie via the memory of the computer on which the pix are created, as they look when I inspect them from the external hard drive on which I store them for added security and for posting via the other, Internet-linked machine. Again, thank you for your confirmation - it makes me feel happier that the world at large sees them more as they were intended to look!

But I do wish I understood where the problem lies.

Been busy these past weeks on a Home and Apparel shooting. These are a couple of them.

A typical Chris Barrett smooth tones & a terrific composition. Leaf back? :)

Recent, in the sense that I have developed my own, dedicated brand of colour film.

The difficulty, as ever, is in the marketing.

(500C + 4/150 + Ektachrome 64.)

P.S. This still looks like mush to me - hope the grain is crisp for you. It's fine (for me) seen outwith the LuLa translation.

When I click the image, my browser opens a small window with a bigger version of the image. The grain does not look sharp in that window, because it is too small for the image. The browser uses its internal scaling function to fit the image to the window.

When I move my mouse pointer in that small window, it changes to a magnifier. When I click with this magnifier, it tells my browser not to scale the picture and I get to see the picture in its original resolution. The picture looks noticeably sharper.

Your browser may use a different symbol than the magnifier. Internet Explorer, for example, displays a symbol at the lower right side of the picture.

Shot these recently, very cool project.  That curved wall is actually 1x3 inch (about that size) rectangles of vinyl sown together and wrapped around a somewhat soft material.  Kind of cool.

Thanks, Jerome -

I have Windows Explorer, and what I get when I click on the thumbnail is the enlarged image in a new window, along with a scale system that allows for magnifications/reductions by clicking on the enlargement percentages that run down the right hand side. I have it at 100%.

Alternatively, I can move the pointer over the image and that gives a small + or - symbol that, on clicking, does a small change in magnification.

But there's no visible change in definition beyond the expected degradation on going larger than 100%.

Best -

Thanks Sean. It indeed was tough. Many people involved and many decisions to make, but I love it!
It is part interior photography and part still life.
 
The forum (Recent Professional Works 2) has been moving these days. That is a good sign. Sorry to be away too long.

Joe, nice stuff... a quick pointer from my toolbox.  If you can turn off those overhead cove lights, then you can grab an exposure of the windows with no reflection.  It's usually a very quick composite in post and makes things feel a bit nicer.


Sean, thanks!  That's out of the IQ 260 which recently replaced my P65+.

Chris, thanks and nice tip; I have done that before.  For this project, the cove lights in the lobby were on the emergency breaker, however maybe I should have done that with the board room image.

Oh well; I'll have to remember this for Tuesday.  Shooting an arboretum, reflection heaven.   :-\

Nice work Antonio. Were you working with a stylist and art director? I require such for work like this even if it is low budget editorial as I have enough to do working out the lighting.

Aphoto. Nice clean shots. I generally avoid cars as they date the architecture. Unless the architecture is really trendy it will look contemporary for maybe a decade or even more-but the car will look dated in much less time as car styles change more rapidly.

Twilight shots of those would be really juicy too.

GLK 350?  I kinda want one of those, but what I really need is a cargo van.  Ugh.

Thanks Kirk, yes we had stylist and art director, although the agency art director limits himself to diagrammatic matters.

We are thinking, in the near future to establish ourselves in the United States. I don't know if you guys run things the same way we do here in South America, but provably very similar.

There's too much political intrusion in our lives and it somehow gets on you.

So that's the next move in my career. Thanks God Hopefully!

I'm interested to know if you agree "in general" with my point about cars?
