Thanks. These are scanned film printed digitally. For many years I printed these traditionally and could not get exactly what I wanted-maybe 95%. Digitally I could get exactly what I wanted.

Awesome, Kirk.  I need to get out there with you sometime and explore my new-found love of shooting rocks and sand.

You can 't do that, Chris: you simply must indulge the entire triumvirate: rocks, sand and at least one tree!

Enjoy.

Or...in Rob's style:
Rocks, sand, and at least One chick

Topless of course.

Actually, I guess I am a fan of the at least one tree...

Hi CB,

Really beautiful.  If I may ask a few questions about your workflow.  (This is in regards to your office and NEOCON photography)

Do you do your own postproduction work?  Just curious to know how many layers do you typical work with?

I really appreciate how you manage the various color temperatures (strobes vs hot lights vs daylight).  Do you balance every to daylight 5500k on the location or correct the colors in post in layers?

Your style really allows the architecture and furnishings to shine.  Cool and crisp.  I can really tell you are very graceful under pressure!

Thank you for sharing.

regards,
jeffery

Pfff guys.
The only thing that's missing in those
Desert landscapes is a ww hippy van
Parked next to the tree
With a fire and a guitar.
A bit of Neil Young Or CSN
And a view camera on a wooden tripod.

Thanks for sharing Chris. Really inspiring work. Can I ask are you hiding the demo's or are they behind camera?

Kodachrome rescued - more or less - from a shoot in Greece.

Don't think I posted it before.

I don't typically shoot weddings but had the opportunity to shoot a friends wedding last weekend.  These are a couple of the images that I like as plow through the processing.

Hi,

once a friend from Hull (UK) said to me: Never trust a man with a white Porsche.

Thanks, Jefferey.  As for color, I go with whatever the dominant ambient light source is.  This space was lit with florescent and tungsten track lights.  It all balanced out to about 2700k and a little green.  I don't carry a color meter, we just white balance the first capture and go from there.

So, the Dedos were straight tungsten, the Strobe and HMI had Full CTO and I think we had 1/8 or 1/4 Plus Green on everything.

We mix up our sources all the time with no regard to their native color balance and we just gel to match.  I carry CTO, CTB and Plus Green in 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and Full.  That usually gets me through any situation.

CB

Edit:  Yeah, I do my own post.  In the time it takes me to mark up notes for the retoucher (and I have a really good guy here in Chicago) I could have just done it myself.  I've become petty damn quick with Photoshop and reasonably skilled.  For this set of images, I've just done a quick round of work.  Next I'll ftp the High Res to the client's server and they'll work directly with my retoucher for any additional work.

Yada Yada.

That was very interesting, along
With the light set-up pic.
I'd like to see those posts
More often.
Thanks Chris.

Ps: are you going to the Madrid festival ?
Maybe Rob could move his bottom
From the island beaches and we
All meet there. That would be a gas.

It amazes me how much science and good technical skills go into our art form. It's a fun rabbit hole of learning shooting and shooting and learning.

Thanks again for sharing.
