For what itīs worth, my first impression on looking at your model pix was Leica M8, not Canon. I donīt pretend to be an expert on either- just a gut reaction is all.

Rob,

Every image (until now) I've posted on this new thread has been with the 1ds3, just because it was our most recent work.

I work with a lot of different cameras.

This image is from Last week, a still from a motion and still project we are working on at present.

[attachment=14307:smdevilsbowl1.jpg]

Shot with a Nikon D700, actually no raws, just jpeg only, but obviously worked in post in photoshop.

BTW:  love the black and white shot you posted of the model.  Looks as contemporary today as it did when you shot it, of course the "wardrobe" helps.

Another typical of what I do; photography in the gym.

a shot from today, I wanted to relax a bit so I walked around my school with my camera and tripod. I was trying to emulate the look of old film

Quote from: EPd
Love the idea of this thread. However, given the absence of restrictions I am a bit disappointed with the results so far. One would expect some wild and powerful experimental stuff. I think I have some, so I'll give it a try now.

Since I am interested in the raw side of humans too I have asked a bunch of 16 and 17 year old teenagers to live out their darkest fantasies and write a script for a short movie in which they would play the characters themselves. I coached and directed them and did the lighting and photography as well. I made two of these short films with two different groups. Here is the compiled "storyboard" that I made from the first one. I am going to print it big so that the video noise will be clearly visible. There is another one (similar shape) from the second group, but I am not sure it will be legal to show it in some countries.

Warning: not for the faint hearted!

Oh well, I suppose we canīt expect our kids to do other than reflect what they see/hear on tv or read - read? - in their literature. Cute to see them being encouraged! Catch īem young, I always say! Love it.

Been poking around at a new series about my guitar maker friend. Not sure what it'll evolve into, but that's half the fun of any project.

Have a looksee:

This is a wall of my photos (10 photos) each blown up to 16 feet tall (almost 5 meters) on the wall of a facility in Kansas City, MO USA. The files from Nikon D3 camera were printed on an Inca Spyder Digital UV inkjet printer in 4' x 8' sections.

Does anybody know how to edit/change a picture (attachment) as an editing exercise in these columns? If so, how do you do it?

Click on edit, full edit, there's a field "manage current attachments" below the text window on the right side. Click on that, and you can delete it. Then you can upload a new attachment.

Thanks, feppe, as with so much in life, if itīs under my nose I tend to miss it!

I have tried a softer version of the same shot - well, in the sense of unsharpened, as I felt it was a bit harsh. Thanks again!

Here are a couple from last season.
[attachment=14363:Gridiron...llet_PFW.jpg] [attachment=14364:Objects_...y_appear.jpg]
These were two that I entered in the photo contest that the NFL Hall of Fame conducts every year for media covering the NFL.

And here's what happened to one of them.

Congratulations! Worthy of recognition, I'd say.

Thanks for the feedback - I was concerned about how different they look on a single monitor shared between two computers of my own and then how different, again, when seen via LuLa and CD.  Just goes to remind me of how beyond control this web business really seems to be. Thanks again for telling me how it is on yours and reminding me of the fact that I will never be able to provide a suit-all solution!

Quote from: James R Russell
Since this section is the one of the few on this forum that doesn't have restrictions, bring on your best, recent/non recent, or experimental work.

(Try to keep cat pictures, camera comparisons and sales messages to a minimum).  

So let's see those Holgas, 5d's, 8x10 Deardorffs, glass plates, Hasselblads, Reds, High Def or Low def video, or Terry Richardson point and shoots and show something interesting.

No cops, no rules, no negativity.

I'll start it off

[attachment=14163:russellr...itorial2.jpg]

1ds3, 400 iso I think F2 something, available light with flex fill.

[attachment=14164:russellr...itorial1.jpg]

1ds 3, 800 iso, 1/2oth of a second F 2 point something, room light and one bounce 1k tungsten Frensel.

JR

No negativity? Does that mean no criticism? Does this thread intend to be a mutual admiration society?

I know that James Russell is a competent and successful photographer in the commercial world, and any criticisms that I offer may be totally irrelevant in relation to the advertising potential of his shots, but speaking from the point of view of a non-consumer and an amateur with an esthetic sensibility, those images are a bit ridiculous, in my opinion, James.

You've got models made-up to the hilt in a rather natural and ordinary environment. They look totally out of place. There's a dysymmetry here which is not beautiful. The models  look artificial. The environment and background look natural.

What are you trying to say here, James?
