Thanks Chris. Much appreciated.

All the tech that goes with Leeds is making us crazy. A couple of years ago in Reno at the medical school, we had 65 rooms on 4 floors in two buildings that we needed lights on in. All were on motion sensors that stayed on between 2-5 minutes once tripped. We figured we needed like 8 people to keep the lights on long enough to get a twilight shot/

chris, i like your interiours very much! the straight look is amazing.

would you mind sharing some details for those shots? focal length, lighting...?  Roll Eyes



Thanks, Thomas... these were mostly with the 43mm.  I believe the first was the 55, tho.  I have a very Zen approach to lighting.  I'm not so clinical about it anymore.  We work with HMI, Kinos, Strobe and Dedolight tungsten.  We mix it all up and gel to match.  The big stuff is usually through 12x silks or bounced off ceilings.  The Dedo's punch the chairs, details, flowers, etc...

Something a little different for me...

My client had to make changes to an existing chapel to facilitate a relocated (humongous) pipe organ.  The finished image is a composite of 15 exposures.  6 or so were for an HDR layer of the blown hilights.  The rafters were lit with a head on a rolling Hi Boy that moved 6 or 7 times.  The chairs were lit one side at a time and we had strobe bouncing in the Narthex to create depth and layers. They gave us a day to do the shot.  We did this one and a vignette in half a day.  Really fun assignment!

Quite a composite Chris. DO you have backstage images of the shooting?
It'd be great to see the Hi boy position and else.

Chris, you represent the diametric opposite of the photography that I like doing. I would hate having to try any of that sort of work. It would paralyse me with fear.

I prefer it to be fun! It probably is for you, which is where I came in.

Much respect, but no envy!

Hah ha ha... yeah... this is actually what I consider fun.  Pre-visualizing all the components on location, keeping them straight, lighting for them and knowing how they'll interact in post is a hell of a challenge.  From what I've seen of Jim's breakdowns, this is very similar to car photography.

That's just why I love this thread. All you pros that post here seem to enjoy what you do, and the results are magnificent, but I can't begin to imagine myself doing the kind of hard work that you folks do!

Inspiring, but daunting!

Very nicely done. Boy would this have been a bitch with film-having attempted something similar myself many times!

Chris, It is a similar workflow and occasionally I'll apply it to my architecture as you did.  I shot a comparable room for a personal project I'm working on but it was quite a bit lighter so I didn't need additional lights.  I've attached the photograph, it's one of the few shots I made with my Arca RM3di(35mm Schneider).  I miss working with that camera but I couldn't justify it's cost when the majority of my architectural work needs to be done faster than it will allow.  I ended up trading it in for a 5Dmk3 and another 17 and 24mmT/S. 

By the way, a Cadillac project I worked on last March had a behind the scenes video produced (by Cadillac) of the shoot which then became the announcement for the car at the annual dealer show in Las Vegas.  Here's a link to my blog that has links to the videos.

Great work Jim on that. I used to photograph historic churches-had an NEA to do so in the 80's. Here is one of my more recent "cathedrals" Smiley Stacked stitch, 5D MII, arsenic leach mine outside Reno.

Hello. First post here (I think). Years watching. Rolleiflex T and T-max 100.


Don't know how I missed your post - anyway, better late than never.

Welcome to the scene, and I have to say, when I had my Rollei T it was well before it (or I) had the chance to do this sort of work!

Mine was usually fiull of TXP 120 - never really used anything else on 120 format other than FP3 a few times which didn't work on 120 (for me) but was great on 135... By the time T-max was out I had no more 120 cameras.

Nice tones in your shot - I never get skin like that with digital capture b/white conversions.
