Shot this a couple of weeks ago and just got around to processing it.  Not the most exciting image, but I am really enjoying the simplicity and symmetry of it.

From the recent Las Vegas trip. The Clark County Wetlands Park Nature Center by Dekker Perich Sabatini. The big issue on this shoot was the lighting. It is controlled at a central facility downtown. Two nights in a row they promised the lighting was going to be on in the building. By the final night we didn't believe them and came prepared-we lit the interiors ourselves with halogen-half with halogen we brought from Albuquerque and half shop lights we bought at Home Depot. Also not only did they not get the lights on but managed to kill the hand rail lights at the top and left of the arched walkway. We solved this by splicing in those areas from a test shot we did the first night we got there. Like nothing I have ever done, AP is all about solving seemingly insurmountable problems in the field.

Kirk, Looks like you nailed it!!  Bummer about the lack of cooperation!  Jim

Don't ya just love technology?  Beautifully handled, regardless Mr. Gittings.

Thanks Chris. Much appreciated.

All the tech that goes with Leeds is making us crazy. A couple of years ago in Reno at the medical school, we had 65 rooms on 4 floors in two buildings that we needed lights on in. All were on motion sensors that stayed on between 2-5 minutes once tripped. We figured we needed like 8 people to keep the lights on long enough to get a twilight shot/

chris, i like your interiours very much! the straight look is amazing.

would you mind sharing some details for those shots? focal length, lighting...?  ::)



Thanks, Thomas... these were mostly with the 43mm.  I believe the first was the 55, tho.  I have a very Zen approach to lighting.  I'm not so clinical about it anymore.  We work with HMI, Kinos, Strobe and Dedolight tungsten.  We mix it all up and gel to match.  The big stuff is usually through 12x silks or bounced off ceilings.  The Dedo's punch the chairs, details, flowers, etc...

Something a little different for me...

My client had to make changes to an existing chapel to facilitate a relocated (humongous) pipe organ.  The finished image is a composite of 15 exposures.  6 or so were for an HDR layer of the blown hilights.  The rafters were lit with a head on a rolling Hi Boy that moved 6 or 7 times.  The chairs were lit one side at a time and we had strobe bouncing in the Narthex to create depth and layers. They gave us a day to do the shot.  We did this one and a vignette in half a day.  Really fun assignment!

Quite a composite Chris. DO you have backstage images of the shooting?
It'd be great to see the Hi boy position and else.

Chris, you represent the diametric opposite of the photography that I like doing. I would hate having to try any of that sort of work. It would paralyse me with fear.

I prefer it to be fun! It probably is for you, which is where I came in.

Much respect, but no envy!

Hah ha ha... yeah... this is actually what I consider fun.  Pre-visualizing all the components on location, keeping them straight, lighting for them and knowing how they'll interact in post is a hell of a challenge.  From what I've seen of Jim's breakdowns, this is very similar to car photography.

That's just why I love this thread. All you pros that post here seem to enjoy what you do, and the results are magnificent, but I can't begin to imagine myself doing the kind of hard work that you folks do!

Inspiring, but daunting!

Very nicely done. Boy would this have been a bitch with film-having attempted something similar myself many times!
