In fairness to BC, not all gym bunnies have the same required look for each assignment or shoot Smiley

Mamiya 645AFDII and Tri-X 400 pushed 2 stops.

Nice image BC but maybe like most gym bunnies your model should remember 'don't forget leg day'  Roll Eyes

Do they make a foldable version of this?  

The one I ordered has a three piece handle that breaks down

 85 customer reviews? Thats funny. The United States really seem to be a "carped-country". Each time I'm over there, I'm impressed by finding carpets at places I wouldn't expect any. Even at the airports, you walk on carpets a lot. Must be a torture to keep those clean. ;-)

couple of timepieces, one a cover shot (was featured inside but they liked it so much it went on the cover) and a test shot work in progress for me (hands need moving to correct position as it’s a non working test piece)

Really nice work there. Well done!
Any chance of getting a breakdown of what was used to create it? or possibly a setup description?

thanks.
a roll of trace, one small flash light and a piece of silver card.
i make it sound so easy Grin

i actually use elinchrom ranger quadras (the battery powered ones) as working that close mono heads are cumbersome and often don't output low enough power and you have to add N.D's
the tudor just had a couple of extra exposures for the bezel where it is angled towards the light and a bit of detail for the lower strap (could have lifted that area but it’s easy to just shoot another frame)
Jaeger has a separate face shot and a large reflector on the right hand side to cover the silver bezel all the way round and a separate highlight exposure for the 2 lugs nearest the camera.

both on canon 100mm IS macro/sony A7r should have done the jaeger on a 90ts-e but was too lazy to change lenses so ended up stacking in helicon focus. the files at 100% look fantastic.

I really would have said Medium format. Well done. The rendition of the fabric is great too.
If you dont mind me asking another question, what sort of timing does it take to produce one of the images? shoot time and retouch time. I know for myself it probably would have been per watch, around 2 hours (incl setup) to shoot and then really particular retouching around 3-4 hours. Is that about right? Maybe im slow ha ha. I know there is no exact mesurement as we all work differently. Im just curious. Thanks again for being so open to sharing.

we did 5 shots in a day with the Tudor, with a stylist sourcing all the props, so you have to factor in time for all the discussions about what works with what props, lighting doesn't take too long as i have had lots of practice and know what look I’m after, retouch time is around 1.5-4 hours a shot depending on complexity, how much stacking to do and how clean the watches are, sometimes they look clean to the naked eye but are filthy when you see them blown up.

the Jaeger shot took 15min to shoot as i was in in a rush to let the chaperone/security go at the end of the shoot and as a consequence nothing lined up through knocking the set and i ‘banged it out quickly’ lighting was already in place i just had to move it to back of the set.

i have before shot 16 watches on location (including stacking) in under 3 hours. physically sweating and not how i like to work, loads of retouch due to rushing and having to let little things go.

HTH


here is a 100% crop. this is unsharpened with just the ‘version 3.0 standard look’ applied in capture1

I think is an opportune  moment to wright about Helicon Remote. I'm using it in my macro photography with jewelry and the result is astonishing. In combination with the best AF macro lens around which is the Nikon 105 G (works only with auto focus lenses) after setting first and last focus points, the software calculates the amount of shots and the distance between them in a second. Then you just have to finish it up in Helicon Focus.

i can’t do the auto bracketing of focus as it doesn't work on the sony and obviously not with the MF 90mm but the focus peaking helps with judging the amount of focus to move and i usually don’t have to redo a stack because i have missed anything. it is a great piece of software.

i meant manual focus ‘MF’. i use a Sony A7r/metabones adapter usually with a 90TS-e and 2.8 IS 100mm macro
i was going to buy an H4D-40 but i couldn’t really see any difference quality wise in other than cost, was not a fan of the HTS to get tilt and having to buy more lighting. i’ll add a cambo actus/lenses next
