A couple of travel collages, clickable for slightly larger versions.
Promising, kaplan. Please, slowly feed us with full-size pics. (You can skip the Wurst ).
I know - pizza and gelato make far more appealing motifs
LoL NOBD! Great pictures Sle & Kap (wish they were bigger but ah well..)
Kaplan- did you use a program to make the collages?
Picasa - free and easy.
Thanks man. My flickr has been giving me grief for a long time but I think I found a solution. More pics to come
Here's a few from today, with a twist of course.
Jewelry ad concept shot...
and again for fun....
and the twist is.....
All of these shots were taken with a single light source. A desk lamp. Again it's not about equipment. It's all about understanding light and how to play with it. For what it's worth what you're seeing is referred to as classic Rembrandt lighting. Learn how to position your subject using this simple lighting technique and your people pictures will instantly be ten times better.
Lamp at about 45 degrees right of the camera, high and then angled down.
nice post. when i first started i used 15 dollar flood lamps from home depot against a bed sheet to diffuse the light for a nice soft look. even though i have many dollars worth of lighting equipment now, my favorite light is still natural window light. there's so much you can do it with.
i do think the shots would've been nicer if the light was diffused cause the hot spots really stick out with her skin tone. the super ghetto cheap version: use a couple kleenexes in front of the light
Oh I'm well aware of the tissue trick! Another trick is using a sheer black scarf over the lens as well. Focusing is rough but you can pull it off. The whole point though is you can pull off just about anything with next to nothing and a bare bulb is about as nothing as you can get. My favorite light has been and will always be about an hour or so before sunset.
The model has teh gorgeous!
I'm slightly pissed. I'm in Tokyo since Monday and didn't take more than 5 really bad pictures. I just didn't really find time as I had to get up at 6am to go to the office and came home around 10pm. Tomorrow I have to get a shuttle bus at 6:30am to start my 23h journey home. If I manage to be a bit crazy I'll go to sleep around 9pm to get up at 3am to take a hand full of shots of Shinjuku station and then some more on my way back to the hotel after dawn (which is supposed to be at 4:40am). I hate such time pressure
