Yelhsa the hotel images are for website use.
Which would therefore tell me the images need to work as landscapes - possibly 2x1 format like this...

.. or this...

.. rather than how one would possibly frame it if the Hotel said they required Multiple Media use instead.

I think it all goes down to the place and the design style you have in front, and a bit of personal seasoning.

ACH
They say a picture is worth a thousand words - so it would also depend on the planed use of the image and/or who we were shooting it for.

For example, for an editorial feature in a Country Homes & Interiors magazine, we shot this room like so...

.. however, for the Hotel's advertising use we shot it like so...

.. as we wanted to portray a different message to their viewers.

So by changing the light, etc, one can also change the words and/or what you are trying to say to the viewer - and as a result of that, one will often get a very different reaction too.

No rights or wrongs - but it's one of the many reasons why we ask clients about their planed Media use beforehand - as there are more than 100 different ways to shoot any subject - which would include this...

.. which was the original recce image of this room, that was taken for preview use only.

olympus em-1, bron hmi.



I know this isn't medium format, though was shooting with the S2, shot about a dozen frames of this setup with the olympus and liked this pose.

At least it's a 4:3 crop.

Not really finished, more of a production still.

Before starting, turned, noticed the talent and shot.  Camera set at 160 iso, image 1 1/3 stops under in exposure, so final ISO probably 800 something.

Opening up and processed in lightroom, no retouching.

Leica S2, Contax 55mm, window/room light

If I told you that the first thing I looked at was how the Contax drew on the S2 ...
I'd be lying.

Very nice image.
She looks a bit like she's been assembled from a kit, actually various pieces from various sizes got used.

I can't help but think that truly if this were shot with a Canon or Nikon or whatever, I anyway would still be really impressed. The reason is that as much as the great gear, the Leica S2, there is the continued compelling work done by bcooter. And if I am flattering, well I mean it to be. From the selection of the model, to the styling, wardrobe, scenes, all of his work is a hallmark of creativity and professionalism. There is just so much more to it than megapixels!

I can't really put my finger on it, but for some reason this one, for me, lacks Cooterness.

It does . . your right.

This was not what we shot for real, I was just standing there and saw the talent in that pose and shot.  As I said it was nearly 3 stops under and I didn't explore it past a few frames and this was the first frame.

It even has the wrong lens, a 55, the no seam is filthy.

We're in post now on the finals which are much different than this.

Personally, I'm not wild about white studios.  It seems everything we shoot in NY has to be a white studio and I've tried every trick in the book to make white work.

I personally like more texture, more complexity and this image is not lit and at best a snapshot, but it kind of shows how well the leica works as a snapshot camera.  (go figure).

Very nice work, SB. I'm glad to see you haven't given up photography while you've been away.
How about a couple of scathing (or at least perceptive) commentaries before you go into hiding again?
