A couple portfolio shots I did this weekend.  One is a focus stack with the XF and the other shot with my tech camera.

Hey Joe,

There's a really subtle reflection in the watch crystal that diminishes the contrast of the internal mechanics.  I did a quick mask of the face and deepened the shadows which makes everything pop a bit more.  Have a look see...

my 2 cents

CB, you have no idea how long I spent getting that reflection to look exactly like that.   8)

Actually, I think bringing the blacks down a bit does help.

It is very smooth and subtle, but that almost makes it seem unintentional and therefore possibly a mistake.

How fortunate is it to see this painting. While it was on display at Chistie's I could photograph it only handheld but was able to compose this image using a stack of multiple captures to improve image quality. I took a liberty to adjust the color balance to white as opposed to orange lighting that is depicted on all reproductions circulating around the net. The color of the lapis lazuli is hardly the same in the web-prepared image (sRGB color space) and but is significantly closer in the ProPhoto color space.

This one is pretty disturbing, Michael. Is that the response you were looking for? Most of your work is like beautiful sculptures of the female form.

Not a critique, just a response.

What I wonder is how she can look so serene and relaxed in such a difficult pose.

The disturbing element I feel is subjective. What Eric mentions is closer to my intent in this image.
The maintained centeredness in such (almost) impossible circumstances serves me as inspiration, remaining graceful regardless of the curveballs life throws.

I took a fair amount of inspiration from Studio Harcourt in Paris, mixed with a bit from CB (I hope you don't mind Chris), and, maybe on a subconscious level, Georgia O'Keeffe too with a new personal project, "Botanicals." 

I was going to wait until I had a few more before sharing these, but, with it being the winter, I am not sure if that will happen soon.  I will probably wait until I get more though before sending them out to the Ad firms.

A few from recent interior design shoots.

How do you fight the mixed lighting?

Haven't tried Oloneo, but doing HDR for each lightsource would multiply number of HDR brackets... My last project required processing of 33 GB of overall image data, while delivering only 11 final images.

Yesterday I visited Yossi Milo gallery in Chelsea/NYC. There is a phenomenal exhibit of Markus Brunetti, FACADES – Grand Tour. Exquisite prints up to 80"x59", *highly* recommend to see it!
