I hope you paid her double for that penultimate shot: my feet are suffering in sympathy.

My new cover of New Mexico Magazine-from an article on Chaco Outliers. Pueblo Pintado site. This kind of editorial doesn't pay top dollar but it gets me out in the field and NOT shooting contemporary architecture for a change.....and my family loves it. I also feel like I am giving something back to my home state that has been so good to me. 5DMII with the 24T/S-handheld vertical stitch.

Congratulations Kirk!  You achieved editorial perfection there!  Was that two horizontals, stacked up vertically?  Last time I wash-boarded my way out to Chaco digital cameras were strictly 640 x 480, but it's on my to-do list.

We will be hosting another round Phase One IQ2 events coming up in April and May in Washingon DC, Colorado, New York, and Texas.

Sorry to say that. But these images show that the best technology don't guarantee a good image.
Be careful my opinion starts here:
1st picture: The body looks out of shape, I guess in reality she looks much better.
2nd picture: The nose?
3rd picture: My feet hurt, when I see this and composition, light?
4th picture: What is going on in terms of shadow and light under her left shoulder? The bright clouds are absolutely distracting.
To mention a few things.
Be relieved my opinion ends.

Don't mean to harm anyone.

Best,
Johannes

I don't think all the images are by full time professionals? A dealer and a couple of reviewers/bloggers and shot on a demo day where there is no art direction or client.

So... exactly what's the point of publishing them, then?

Thanks to a recent posting by French Fred, I had another look today at some Ellen Von Unwerth shots, a lady who's been around a long time with a lot of success. Coming from way back in film, she has one great thing going for her(IMO) and that's that she shoots models showing emotion. When your fashion pix have that, you don't need to give a damn about formats, DR, ETTR or any other current shibboleth: it's in the photographs or it's not - much as has always been the case.

Yes Bill. I do this often to build the megapixels-two images stacked bottom and top with a decent overlap and then merged in PS. With a T/S lens this is easy. Shift to the bottom take one image-shift to the top and make another being careful to hold the camera steady and keep some overlap so the stitch program can find some registration points to get the overlap correct-a bit harder to do this handheld without a T/S lens unless it is a long shot without objects in the foreground.

... day where there is no art direction...

Good to know whom to thank for a good fashion/model photography... not the camera, not the photographer, but art director? Wink

We will be hosting another round Phase One IQ2 events coming up in April and May in Washingon DC, Colorado, New York, and Texas.

I don't think it's fair to critique the photographers on these photos. It was a product presentation party.
I'm sure the photographers were distracted by the excitement of seeing the new gear and keep in mind
that the only new features of interest are wireless image review and long exposure... so I'm guessing more time was spent looking at that.

However what's up with the skin tone, blown out highlights and blue cast on the eyeballs. Not a critique of the photographers, but these are hardly representative of high image quality.

Photo 2: Blue cast in the white of the eyeballs, yellow cast on the highlight on her nose..

Photo 4: Skin looks plasticy and nasty blown out whites on the sky..

Love the models name Natasha Savignon..  lovely name.

Would like to hear more about how the Wifi review was working....

Very nice Martin.... We need to go and eat some more dust together at another one of these events....

The composition in thesre two images is as good as it gets... I particularly like the interesting way they work so well together.

Hello Martin,

I saw your portfolio some month ago in the web. Me being latin I think is great. Should publish more of your images here.
Thanks.

Fred, you are probably not really good at read light. This is mixed lighting with what looks like a lot of skylight, hence the blue. The clouds are really bright and being outside depth of field will take out detail. You really need to get out of the studio more often.

Naturally, if this was not a Phase product demo would probably would not have posted. I am sure the photographers did not ask for your 2 cents. I don't believe this is a critique thread.
