Hello,

Shoot with a Mamiya RZ body, Leaf Aptus 75 back and 180mm SB lens with tilt/shift adaptor.

Question is. But is it art?

Just kidding.

Cheers

Simon

Hello Simon, nice work. There was a time when a "Tabasco" commercial image was print in poster size for decorative use. That could be.

Peoples, I've never felt entirely comfortable posting non-commissioned work here. I'm wondering if there's a consensus that this thread should be reserved for commissioned commercial work only? Anyone have strong opinion either way?

in my opinion, what combination of techniques you use doesn't matter. The point is to be in charge of a managed process, not just throwing shit at the wall and hoping that what sticks looks good. Pre-visualize the shot, and then go through whatever steps you need/want to get there. If the end result matches what was in your head....then you're doing it right.



Bang on.....

Spec work is fine, or uncommissioned editorials, or promo pieces, but I'm never averse to seeing good images, no matter its reason for being.  I just don't want to see Canon cat pics.

does anyone "do it professionally" by taking different shots for different light sources (e.g. daylight, tungsten and fluorescent) so that each light source can be independently light-balanced before merging the shots? This, of course, gives you a very wide range of options to satisfy a clients requirements.

Dick, I can tell you that lots of people work that way.

Yes, Scott, but one problem with working as a professional is (I think) that you may not know how the customer pre-visualises the shot - so it is good to have options for post-processing... e.g. to fill deep shadows by merging in another shot.

@Scott - very clean lighting, great job! Have you tried using Oloneo HRD relight (http://www.oloneo.com/en/page/products/photoengine/hdr-relight.html)? It allows to create a lighting composite based on individual frames, each shot using a separate light source.

Thanks for sharing this. I think you are referring to the feature described in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=8AbUPG_SLYk#!

It looks like a very useful tool in some controlled environments, but do you find Oloneo capable of blending several exposures to construct interior pictures such as hotel rooms with window light? I tired photomatix and got mixed results. The software doesn't give independent control over how much detail and exposure is introduced in highlights and shadows. I end up with gray bed covers instead of white etc. Thus I resort to manual blending using masks. Great control but time consuming.   

Thanks

I've had better success using LR/Enfuse and SNS HDR Pro, and then blending in parts of the original best exposure to the exposure blended HDR image.

Antonio, that last shot is especially spectacular! Nice set. The second shot really messed with my eyes for a few seconds...

Dick, that's a valid concern for some folks. I have a clause that requires client representation at the shoot, so they know exactly what they're getting, before we strike the set.
