I still only have the 50 mm lense. I'll be getting the 100mm next week hopefully :) Its a 150cm octabank on Elinchrom flashes, really like it. Not very portable unfortunately. thinking about getting the original Elinchrom ones, they are easier to carry around and set up.

You might want to re-read the article. He shoots Apple's products on a Canon 5DIII with a 24-70 Canon zoom.

You might want to read the article all the way through. He's shooting Apple products with Sinar and Phase One gear.

The 5DIII was for the time-lapse.  Also, does this guy actually shoot Apple's product shots or just the magazine's?  The style feels fairly different from Apple's ads.

Dude, I love this, but I want the circle centered in the triangle.  I know, I know... I'm such a freak.

Interesting coincidence:) This one is shot in 2007, but just reprocessed while trying new skin tone settings in RawTherapee

Michael... that is just absolutely beautiful. It's naturalness is what in my eyes makes it so beautiful with gently tonality
combined with artificial light that has all the credibility of natural light.
 
The smooth on the dress and the crisp texture in the dress reminds me of a Vemeer.

You take pictures like Miles Davis plays the trumpet.

Thank you for such kind words, Fred:)
We had a very productive session with this model, I come back to it from time to time, and this image is one of my personal favorites.

I completely agree with Fred. Your work is always first class, Michael.

Self assigned project to go shoot some motion for stock.  Out of the sunroof of my truck, 10 mph, 24 fps.  Red Epic & Canon 17-40 zoom.  HDRx to tame the sun's reflection.

Smart move. Motion stock pays better than stills stock. I do some work for a company the buys stock in large amounts
and as a result get special pricing. The cost of an urban landscape clip is around $ 700 while the same type of quality still is about $60 for the same usage.

That magic moment. Hold it just like that and look at the camera.

Processing it in what looks like the most natural of ways is really where the magic is.
It's about the photo veritas effect. While there is a lot of work with what is called working a file deep
that looks great it is most of the time a step away from photography and much of the time very artificial.
I think that beauty in it's simplest form is harder to do well and when it is achieved it is breath taking.
That does not mean that there is not extensive post work, it is just masterfully kept under control.
It is very easy with today's software tools to create high contrast over sharpened retouched skin
or desaturated alabaster skin.

I think the same can be said for models poses and attitude. A quite and serene look or a delicate smile
is harder to pull off than fashion attitudes.

It's like the magic of a Vemeer compared to an air brushed glamour illustration.

I love that building, I think it has the best cross section profile of any skyscraper.
