Ditto, I can tell from the vanishing point that you've shifted the lens down quite a bit to show more floor.

This is for an architects that specialise in the refurbishment of bars and restaurants and a big part of the investment is the flooring so I always try and find a position that highlights the quality and texture of the flooring. Habit also I suppose as I have various clients that are carpet manufacturers, ceramic tile manufacturers and flooring adhesive/underlayment manufacturers so have a appreciation of good flooring and often try and get some it in my shots rather than always clutter with furniture.

Antonio, would you mind posting a 100% crop of the upper left corner?  I'd like to see how that zoom handles detail at the edges.

I figured the pervious had to have some flooring motivation.  As for this one, I think you have a strong base but I can see a number of things that would make the shot more impactful.  I hope this doesn't offend you, I spent about 10 minutes in Photoshop to push the image towards something that I feel is more compelling.

Firstly, you have a lot going on around the edges of the frame.  The addition of the column faces don't really tell us anything new about the room and they pull your eye to the edge, away from the more interesting parts of the composition.  Always work to drive the viewers eye towards what you're really selling.  So, I cropped in a bit.  Also, that table and chair in the foreground are barely peeking in, not adding anything, just remove them.  Next, the overall WB is cool and less inviting.  I warmed the whole shot up.  This also makes the fireplace area TOO warm, so I desaturated yellow there locally.  Then I found the shadows across the ceiling really distracting.  Anytime my strobe is hitting the ceiling (and throwing shadows) we try to flag that off.  Sometimes you really can't, though.  I always do one exposure with the strobe off.  This gives me something to composite in and clean up bad strobe leaks or shadows.  I almost always use this extra image in my retouching and it always makes the overall shot more polished.  Notice that we also see shadows from your lighting across the fireplace plinth, in the back right corner and the foreground columns.  These make the shot visually noisy.  Your lighting should never be evident (unless you REALLY mean for it to be).  With the grouping on the right, I'd like that to feel a little more spacious, inviting.  You could do this by pulling the foreground chair towards camera just a little and the back one to the left slightly so you feel the space between it and the table.  Additionally, I went in and did selective burning and dodging to help better move the eye around and add depth.  Then I noticed that there is another room beyond the fireplace.  That's a great opportunity to relay the depth and volume of the overall space within a more intimate shot.  It's dark, though, so your story is losing value.  We would have just thrown a ceiling bounce back there to open it up, but I've done it in Photoshop pretty effectively.  Lastly, in styling, I find the menu stand on the left really distracting.  Maybe just a place setting (or anything low or flat) would have been better.  Equally, the menu stand, table tent and salt/pepper shakers just seem to clutter up the right side.

I hope you don't mind me totally dissecting this image, but I felt like it was a pretty great learning opportunity and I hope that that is more valuable than me just coming here and saying "Nice shot."

Best,
CB

Thanks!

That looks pretty good.

I haven't seen or heard of this lens option for the sony set up. Can someone explain to me how a 35mm designed lens can be shifted on a 35mm sensor?
Obviously it has a larger image circle than needed, but this is actually quite cool...

I'm about to order this rig from Hartblei.  Stefan has created a nice little solution...

He reports...
14mm about 5mm Shift
18mm around 10mm Shift
24mm about 7mm Shift

So, while it doesn't have as much movements as dedicated Tilt/Shift glass, it can go Crazy wide and the idea of composing via zoom is pretty enticing (zero crop).






Jack Flesher has done a nice write-up at Get Dpi. on the kit.

I think is a good Idea Chris. Just change the mounting ring in your camera first because it flexes. I got the Tough-E mount.
Ask Stefan about this.

Don't mind at all and appreciate your imput and excellent pointers to help me improve in an area of photography I really enjoy.

The white on white was very nicely done.  You hit the tonality just right.  That is not an easy subject .

Here's a project shot recently of the new Alfa 4C.  It's first use will be the car's catalog but the images will then go into their asset library.  I shot the majority of the images with my P45+ but the profile interior was shot with a 5dmk3 and 17mmT/S.  Jim

Jim, this prompted me to revisit your site.  Everything is really great, but what I really love is the way you handle images in post.  They're really rich and seductive, but they don't feel artificial... like so much work does after it comes out of post.  Beautiful stuff.

Jim,
Wonderful images of something I think everyone would love to have in the garage - as Chris put it 'seductive'...

Out of interest - the overheads.  I'd love to know your set up for these - ie, camera, lens, how far above the car were you, lighting etc.

The lighting is wonderful!

I love that you used some hard light on these.  You don't see that much with automotive.  It's very well done.

Off topic....how do you like the perky?
