Latest test shoot. Just came out in the spring Workbook this week. The navigator shaved off his beard the next day.




Nice idea nicely executed but one big elephant in the field: four guys too many! On her own, she'd have been wonderful! (The girl - the elephant hasn't disclosed anything.)

History with a difference: instead of Kodachrome, one of those exercises where the client insisted that bigger was inevitable better. The client was a maker of ethnic Scottish jewellery, as you can tell from the brooch, I suppose. This was part of a studio calendar I did for him. It wasn't all sand 'n' surf.

Ektachrome 64, Hasselblad 500CM and 4/150mm Sonnar with the added interference of a Softar, which was fashionable at the time, but which in a digital age is not necessary... but those pale outlines did carry a sort of snobby street cred in some places at the time. Other people thought there was something wrong with the film. Oh, photography.

I tried to post this yesterday, but for some odd reason it went as pink as a flamingo the moment it landed within LuLa. I've made another jpeg, checked it was the right space (it was) and so I hope for the best.

Model: Nina Carter, aka Mrs Rick Wakeman.

According to the Sun newspaper, then a better casting medium than most agencies, she was blessed with the finest pair in the land. And to think I have none of them left... trannies, I mean.

P.S. It's gone pink again, but not as badly. I suppose if one thinks strawberry blonde...

P.P.S.  The original tranny was copied on a Kodak lightbox using the D700 and a second-hand manual 2.8/105 Micro Nikkor. Good buy.

Thanks, fellahs. She was tremendous to work with (it's Rose McIver, the actress who played the living sister in "The Lovely Bones"). The whole cast for this shoot was a dream team. 

Just added all the portraits from the shoot to my website:

Chris, What a beautiful landscape!  Great balance and light!!  Is this from the shoot awhile back or did you return?  I had a trip planned to New Mexico this coming Friday but work got in the way.  Will have to reschedule soon.

Simon, To me it's too manufactured and without any drama.  I think you should leave this one out of your book, you've got a lot of images with more impact.

Hello,

The car is right hand drive as we drive on the left here in New Zealand and the driver is short.

The image looks very rendered compared to most of you car shots.  Are you compositing the image, shooting everything at once with a rig or using virtual rig software?

I like your car shoot Simon, even if it is a composite !! The goal is to sell the car so this photo is a winner. Smooth, powerful all in one... but ... were the hell is the driver ??  Grin

Home Office shoot for Herman Miller.  AD wanted Bright and Airy but with Contrast and Saturation.  Naturally it was overcast for almost the entire shoot.  Sunlight through the windows is all HMI.

Hi Chris,

have you ever compared your "sunlight hmi" to something like a broncolor flooter or a profoto cine-kit?

I'm always torn between hmi and flash, but end always up with flash or tungsten. Where do you see the advantage of HMI?

Best,
Johannes

On this shoot we had HMI outside coming in the windows, strobe inside for soft fill and tungsten DedoLights for accents.  I love all lighting!  I've been moving towards constant sources, though, since Flash doesn't work so well for movies.  One thing we've done with one of my Jokers is adapted it into an ETC Source 4.  That throws gorgeous, shapeable punchy light with shadows sharper than you could even get from a fresnel.  I once assisted a fashion shooter who adapted Source 4s to Speedo heads as well.

Great work Chris.  Out of curiosity, did you find the locations or did the AD?

And yet the floor lamp is on. AD not eco-conscious? Wink

Dude.  I think that's a little silly.  Lamps look better lit.  We're making photographs not socio-ecologic edicts. If we thought it was really a valid issue I would have removed the lamp and used a different prop rather than have it off.
