I am in the process of "relocating" to NYC from Philly and, of course, need to change branding a little.  Shot these two Sunday; although I wish I had sun, I think they came out ok.  Both shot with the Rodie 55, which I am also trying to use more often too.  



Excellent views. Color balance seems on the cool side to me for both, on my monitor. The left one seems a bit blue overall, with maybe a hint of magenta or purple in the highlights, and the right one looks positively purple to me, especially the sky.

From what I can tell, and I may be wrong, they won't even return the call to accept a large sum of money or to say no.  That is obnoxious. 

Were you offering a significant amount of money to use their property? If not, what is their incentive to be responsive to you? Can't imagine they would have any interest in photos of a neighboring building, unless they happen to own or manage it as well.

Goddamit Slobodan, you must be almost as ancient as am I in order to remember such niceties!

The reality? It's just another part of that long-lost Golden Age that the children amongst us deny existed.

Shot this today.  Almost fresh out of the camera; I spent about 5 to 10 minutes in PS on it.  We used 6 strobes and 2 hot lights.

Spent yesterday and today (and going back tonight and a day next week) in the new Ben Franklin Museum in Philly.  The interior designer (out of London) needs a couple asap, so I just worked on this one. 

Off to shoot some more.

Joe K, I always enjoy your technically perfect interior shots. Do you mind sharing the Metadata > Camera, lens, f-stop, shutter speed & any supplemental lights, if u terribly wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate it. Thnx. :)

Hello,

My first attempt at using my home made strip light. Its 5 meters long, 60cm wide and uses 3 strips of LED’s.

This shot is straight out of the camera.

Cheers

Hi Simon,

Very soft light......

I'm interested to hear your experiences in colour balancing these.  Did you use any supplementary lights?

We light the inside of this model with tungsten balanced LED's and there was strobes gelled to tungsten lighting the exterior - not totally balanced.
If anyone is interested, the model maker is www.scaleart.ca
They also work in the US and are amazingly talented.

Cheers

Hello,

The strip light is the only light sources in the shot.

I did have to use gels to balance the LED’s to the same colour temperature as my Dedo lights. So in the future I can combine the different lights together.

Cheers

Hello Sean, thanks for the compliments.  Both shots were captured with a P45+ on an Arca Swiss using a SK 35mm lens with the CF.  I was shooting at f/11 for both.  The first shot that I posted was a little hairy and complicated, so get ready. 

This was an office interior in an old building; most of the walls where white and helped a lot.  I used 6 strobes and two hot lights for this image.  For strobes, I placed one at the left of camera bouncing off of the wall, one at the right of the camera bouncing into that little out cove.  I had one directly above the camera with a 30 degree grid projecting into the shot.  A fourth was placed behind that out cove bouncing off of the wall on the right.  Fifth one was reflecting out of an umbrella by the cubicles.  The last one was behind were the chairs are, bouncing off of the floor and kitchen area.  All strobes were gelled with 1/2 CTO; the strobe with the grid also had a full diffusion gel behind the grid.  The hot lights were hitting the chair to the right and the group of chairs in front of the camera.  When I work with strobes, I balance the shot as much as I can at ISO 200.  Then throw on a device that allows me to control manually the length of the exposure, sync the pocket wizards to the Copal shutter and drop the ISO to 50.  This allows me to do multiple exposures.  I do not remember the shutter speed, but this shot was 6 multiple exposures (I think, it could have been 5) at ISO 50. 

I can explain the second one later; I have a shoot to go to.

Did I say how much I love working with Phase backs!

Last shot of the day, Rodie 55mm at f/11.  Single capture using 5 tungsten lights.  Only opened it in PS to remove an EXIT sign.

Hello,

This is a personal shot I did working with a great retoucher and all round nice guy Dan Coroian-Vlad.

http://www.retouching.co.nz/

https://www.facebook.com/pages/D2-creative-retouching/166300943405238

The car was shot with a Nikon D800E, Nikon 70-200mm F2.8G @F16.0.

Lighting was Dedos my new home made strip light and some light painting.

I have another shot of the Aston Martin DBS coming soon.

Cheers

Simon
