You can read more about this shoot and what was involved in creating this and some of the other images we produced at that time here: A lighting challenge.



Very nice Ashley, as usual.  Love seeing how you lit the room and I would really like to incorporate more that style in my work.  Architects and designers tend to be more natural look, so maybe I just need to go after resorts more.

Hi people, first time posting here so please be gentle  ;D
Thought I'd post a couple of images from a real estate shoot last week, property was an old squash court converted into a dwelling. One of the most difficult images I've taken in terms of balancing colours. So many different light sources, and very specific instructions on having the CBD in the background. Any feedback is welcome. And don't worry, I know real estate photography isn't real photography but it pays the bills at this stage and I always take my time to shoot it as 'architecturally' as I can  ;)

Disclaimer: I'm not a professional.

That said: To me it looks like a gorgeous shot, but:
I'm afraid the reds - as great as they are - might overpower the jewellery - I can't judge if that would be a problem, just thought I'd mention it.
Cheers

Hey Christoph, i did forget to mention this was a shoot for Valentines day and this was the cover shot. Essentially the idea was to set a mood, while portraying some fine product. I hope that helps clarify. I guess i should be more descriptive ha ha. Next time. Thanks for your feedback, and i agree with you, perhaps a little less red...

Hi Dean, the photography is great,  but placement of the finger and its nail seems unnecessarily intrusive. My impression is that if finger was bent with the nail appearing at shallower angle, it would allow for a greater accent on the ring.

Thanks for your response Michael. I agree that a different angle of the finger could have been a better composition. There were actually a few shots exactly like that but unfortunately the client select is the one you see here. (I could not find the time to personally retouch extra images specific to my needs, not to say i would have chosen a better one though). Maybe ill look for a better one from the batch when i get some free time.

Thanks again, i appreciate your input.

While I agree with Michael that the composition is wrong, as an unique image the whole thing is right. And in fact it gets across very well how diamonds really are a girl's best friend ;)

Your photograph is perfectly fine; why would you care what an electrician says about your plumbing or a sommelier about your cooking? (Of course, if you lived in Mallorca they might all be the same person...)

You have two important minds to satisfy: your own and that of your client. The rest, including my opinion, is bullshit. We all have degrees in critique...

Thanks for your input Rob, you are absolutely right, however, although this job has already gone to print, my time for this image is exhausted and my mind has been made, the sole purpose is to get feedback. Or rather just to hear others' opinions. I find it interesting to hear what others have to say especially since there are very few valued opinions where i am from let alone a network from which to form a discussion of meaning. So not all bullshit, rather like gold. (in some cases  ;).

Thanks for your take.

Wish I'd had his abilities!

Imagine what he'd have done with PS instead of Aerograph DeVilbiss... but maybe the latter is actually better.

;-)

P.S. I wrote 'done', but is he still working - does he need to?

Rob, I'm not sure if Syd is still working. He was certainly raking it in when I shared an agent with him some years back.

i think it's fine composition wise, me i would reduce the detail in the finger/skin a little but it's not a deal breaker
