I recently tried a few different shades of floor paint, white, gray and black.  It had been so long since I'd painted my studio black (existing paint was from 2008) that when I ordered more I found that the company had gone out of business.  Anyways, either white or gray works well, gray if you want a bit more contrast (just the floor), if you were to paint the whole stage gray it's no different than exposing longer with a white stage (if you're in an eggshell cove).  Using flying flats is what allows me to light with any contrast range I'd like and with the advantage of PS voodoo the car will look great almost regardless of lighting method.  My website's Advertising>Recent Work has more of the Cadillac images and other shots taken in the studio (although some placed in location backgrounds).  Attached are a couple views of my studio illustrating flying flats and strip lights.  Jim
Jim, are you using that second shot as a promo piece for yourself?  Looks like a very well planned out and set up image of your studio; too good for just a quick shot to us your space.

Poster by the BLM from my artist-in-residency at Canyon of the Ancients last year. Now if I could only find a live body somewhere in the system to get a copy:).

I realise this isn't a 'critique' section,  but that is one helluva good shot!

Hand of ancient Man, then?

Beautiful.

That's a nice skin; not plastic but porcelain.

FWIW, there's a big company in Spain whose name is similar - Porcelana, or like that - and they use this ageing 'personality' lady - have for decades - as their face-of; she's amazing (or the production is) because she never changes over the years. I think she was a wife of Julio Iglesias at one time, but Fred will probably know. I used to know her name but it's slipped away; Isabel Preysler! Got it back. Haven't seen ¡Hola! since my wife died, and the ads were in that all the time. Send them a file...

Breaks my heart: Ava Gardner sent me a picture and I think that was postmarked Culver City.

Terrible moments - I deserted her for Brigitte Bardot sometime between '56 and '59 and Buddy Holly's departure must have had little to do with it.

Speaking of which, thought this was a fitting memento but nobody seemed to know what the hell I was alluding to with the image.

C'est la vie - or quite the opposite.

Nice little interiors project.  The austere esthetic was driven by the German client.  The severity of it warms my cold heart.

Hi Antonio,

Very beautiful shoot I like the way you have captured the detail in the beer froth, nice lighting and you have used the same camera and lens set up as I would use. I could not imagine not having a Horseman VCC system.

Cheers

Simon, Martin, thanks for your comment, if it makes you thirty means I did right then.!

I shot the bottle too but it needs to go to plenty retouching. The label was a transparent plastic sticker and does not have good color reproduction. The artist have to make their ways on it.
