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.

If you really want to be a stickler...... It's a recent professional Works thread, not a marketing event thread.
I seriously doubt any of the photographers would consider the shots they did at a product party "professioanl work" or an expression of what they are capable of.
I'm sure they each only had a few moments with the cameras.

Regardless there are loads of technical comments on images in this thread....

My point is that these images and how they are processed are not representative of a sensors capability, especially the way they were processed. I doubt they were processed by the photographers.

Regarding the plasticy skin and blown out clouds... it's not about the depth of field... there is tonality even in very blured objects.

The file is seriously clipped



Levels of the whole image:

Both Blacks and highlights are seriously clipped.
Crushed blacks should be achieved without clipping so harshly.
Always found that to be a limitation of C1 that does not have the same control of ACR 2012 process that has separate Shadow and Blacks sliders.

Regarding the skin.... the so so skin look is due to the red channel being way to hot and clipped:

Levels of a crop on the skin.

Thank you, Antonio. The positive feedback from people who are far ahead of me in their careers means a lot. And I must be Latin, too, because I love charreadas and all that comes with it Smiley In terms of photography, the escaramuza is much more interesting, though. But I haven't published any of them, so they are not strictly "professional works".

Fred, there is more to an image than a histogram. Just because it does not meet your personal criteria does not mean anything. Actually, the technocrat generally makes boring images as they limit themselves to purely technical interpretations to images. And I am sure you would never have pushed detail down into the shadows or let the highlights blowout for effect. Please refrain for using other photographers and their work for one of your crusades.

Come on now, that's not fair comment.

The pix suck and that's an end to it. Don't shoot the messenger, and if you must, better use a machine gun because there are several such messengers here.

They just don't look very proffesional, more like a couple of rushed snaps taken by enthusiasts with a cold model who are more into the gear than making images.
