Hi Antonio,

This series of images are lovely. There has definitely been a lot of preparation in making these images and the lighting is beautifully.

Cheers

Simon

Yeah, the last house we shot, we were actually able to get permits to post no parking all in front for a week.


BRILLIANT (did you see those Sydney 2000 Guinness ads?)......not sure the city of Vancouver would go for that.....

Chris, did you get hit up for a pretty fortune for a weeks worth of no-parking?

Saylor Gregg, great firm.  I have been trying to get in front of them for a while.  However, for local shoots they are very loyal to Tom Crane, a local Philly photography legend (been in the biz for over 40 years and started off with Ezra Stoller). 

Funny thing is that I really want to travel for projects, like Tim Griffith, and see the world.  But looking at those images you took and knowing that a native South-Westerner captured them, it makes me wonder is someone not native to the Southwest could capture the essence as well as you did.  Kind of makes it a hard sell to convince clients to send you to exotic locations.  I wonder, do I see city architecture differently because I live in Center City Philadelphia and am I better at photographing it? 

Anyway, great job on Sante Fe, Kirk. 
Well that's a great question. In the "old" days there were a handful of good architectural photographers so the one that were top tier got to travel extensively. I was fortunate to get my share of that. But frankly for me personally I prefer working closer to home-somewhere I can drive to. I had so many terrible experiences with airlines that I soured on traveling by air for commercial shoots. Toooooo much stress. I love to travel! But not for work unless I can drive. I love to drive and even at 63 don't hesitate to jump in the truck and drive to a shoot 12-16 hours away.

The fact is that there are more good architectural photographers than there used to be. That makes it easier for clients to find good people on location in distant areas. I think because of the internet tech info is easier to come by. You used to have to apprentice or just learn the hard way by making every mistake possible (what I did-there was no one to apprentice with).

I do think there is a  regional "sensibility" to regional forms of architecture. It comes from experience with the regional light, contrast, color, skies, weather, materials, hassles etc.

Hello,

Honda interior.

Nikon D800E, Nikon 24mm PC-E lens and 12,000 watts of Bowens flash at full power. I love the cracking sound of Bowens generators going off at full power it sounds like a bullwhip.

Cheers

Simon

Simon, I guess this takes many hours to set up, I've never done cars but seen colleagues doing it and is a lot of work.
Nice post too.

Twin Arrows, AZ 2013. This image is from my long running project on Route 66. It is currently showing in Santa Fe at the Marion Center for Photographic Arts "In/Visible Borders" exhibit and shortly will also be in the Albuquerque Museums "Miniatures" show where it will be for sale also.

I'm never sure, when I ask questions like that, if I'm going to be revealing my own cultural ignorance  Wink

Shame, really. I like Rob's idea.

Thanks Antonio. I would have shot this with film if I had had it with me, but such was not the case. As it were it is a 3x stitch with a Canon 45 T/S.

Of course, the micro contrast and atmospheric mood you would get with film is different, mostly in landscapes.
But still my preferences for the ease of digital.

Kirk, what are your thoughts regarding that  lens? When I tried it out I was disappointed: softness (especially when shifted), CA, barrel distortion. So I never bought one, and limped along with "regular" 50mm lenses and/or cropped down from my 24TS. Recently I bought the Schneider 50TS -- I posted a few examples from it on the "Cameras & Lenses" thread here.

For b&w I actually don't find digital any easier. Convenient yes on the capture side, but more work in post to get the tones I want.

Actually, here's a couple with the Schneider Super Angulon 50mm that I was going to post here anyway...

I made the kitchen shot in a big hurry during a lunch break (because my client was utterly disinterested in it but I wanted it). Now he's licensing it....heh. Cool

I also made a 4x5 film version of that, on Ektar 100 but I'm not holding out much hope for it as I was really rushed at the time. I just don't shoot with that camera enough to be truly proficient with it.

I guess I was asking more in terms of interiors...I know you wouldn't have the lens if you didn't think it worked, but are you seeing any of the issues that I mentioned? I think the Canon 24 is really the gold standard for me and I tend to hold other lenses to that, which is kind of unrealistic, I suppose.
