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.

Great images Chris, I especially like the third one.  Very simple illustration of a scene within the design.

Some great work posted recently!  Chris I think the first image is stellar, the eye level is completely unexpected and works perfectly.  Jim

p30+, Contax, 800 watt Broncolor HMI, 1/2 stop spun, bounced into white card.



Paris a couple years ago.  re imaged for advertising this week.

IMO

This is brilliant, and a divine revelation
For me as I'm looking for a similar Skintone
In motion.
I had doubts it could be too artificial but
Looking at this image, if it's nailed, as Rob
Described "porcelaine", it really looks pretty
And mysterious.

I will do another Avid tutorial on face retouching
Using only on purpose the avid available tools
And roto within the editor without any compo app.
Got a shot (CU) of an actress that has many lightning
And make-up issues. So the task will be a complete
Recovery of the face, with tracking masks etc...
And this image skintone is exactly what I want
As a final result.  

Great inspiring image. Thanks for posting.

As an AP, I never deal with skin tones.  How difficult is it working with skin tones in post?

Here's a couple from last week for a GC I work with.  He built the house 7 years ago and will be renovating the (former) owners' new house in center city Philly.  With it so neat, since they just sold it, he thought to send me out.   ;D

Well it depends on many factors, how bad, or far from the final output the original image is.
There is a lot that can be done in post, but in fact, if the original does not stand still, very little can be done.(or very expensive)
You can train some horses to do racing, but it will not work if you take a donkee for that purpose.
So post can't replace a good set.

And, oh yeah, the MUAs...and SPECIALY the MUAs with motion...because this has big consequences on the time to have to spend on
trying to recover bad make-up.

I find that the most difficult is not specially to lite well, but to lite with a final look in mind.
And that part is none of my business-habilities so I can't comment on that.

In general, in motion, the "rule" is to shoot the flatest possible files with log, to preserve the max range so
the looks are generated in post.

Now, someone like Coot who know how to lite, may not use log but directly lite to the closest final look in mind.
You can even create a look from RedCine X and load the metadatas into the Cam and shoot with it.
The Raw image is preserved so if you're not happy with it, you can always revert and recreate as many looks as you want.
That has an advantage if you know what you are doing, but a very big downside if you don't nail it because then the
footage is not really easy to recover. Using log flat file is adding extra steps in the pipeline but more flexible and safer.

The prob shooting log, is if you have clients that don't know motion, they look at the footage and go crazy because it
looks horrible. If you are shooting motion, within motion and for motion, then people are aware and know the workflows.
So shooting flat with clients that aren't coming from motion world is a mixed bag.
