A homeless(I think) man from Riga. I asked if I could take his picture, he looked and stared and didn't say anything. I lifted the camera in a taking a picture gesture, he looked and stared and didn't say anything. I took the picture, he looked and stared and didn't say anything. Was kinda intimidating but worth it! :)

Great pictures everyone!  Great contrast in the salt and pepper in the hair. 

Here are my 2 favorites, both taken of my daughter in 2011 with a t2i.  My wife and I debate which one is our favorite so neutral opinions would be appreciated!  As a proud father (and amateur photographer) I like the bow one because of the "serious" look and bokeh.  I have a 20"x30" canvas print of this and the resolution turned out great.  Can't believe a $90 lens gave that bokeh.

Particulars of the bow picture:
Canon 50mm - f1.8 lens.  1/125th @ F2.5.  ISO200.  No flash.
pillow and blanket under her

Particulars of the Baptism photo:
Canon 18-55 - f3.5-f5.6 lens.  1/80th @ f5.  I believe ISO400.  Not sure if popup flash was used.
Mom off to the side making faces and standing by to grab her if she tipped over!

Portraiture isn't something I do very much, but here are a couple of my favourites. I have a couple candid shots of a friend too that I like too, but she doesn't like her seeing photos of herself, so I will respect her privacy.

Perhaps this one's not outstanding like several of the posts here, but I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that this one was taken at ISO 12800.

That's my younger brother, by the way.

the first shot i used a an AB Ringlight. i was actually demonstrating it to my class and one of my former students was walking by. i quickly asked him to stand in for a shot and he provided the dramatic pose. gotta love art school students!

i really like your post production. reminds me a bit of David Hill. very photo illustrative.

Hi,

Personally, I am drawn to the first (darker) version. For me, the darker background is less distracting, and makes your daughter and the flash a bit more prominent, while still casting the flash as another of many childhood toys (someone is off on the right foot to be a great photographer someday!)

A few favorites of mine ...
First and second contrasted one another : the old with the young and vice versa.
The third was a very sweet family!

A good friend of mine is redesigning his recording studio and has a new website to match. This photo is for the About section. Shot on a 60D with 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens.

A lot of great shots in this thread!

Here is a street portrait I took recently of a homeless person who was selling news papers (a paper that specializes on poverty issues and the challenges of homeless people in general) and feeding pigeons in the centre of Copenhagen. When one of the pigeons flew up in his palm I was reminded of a saying we have in Danish, which when translated in to English goes like  One bird in the hand is better than two on the roof top, and was immediately grabbed by the moment and the message the picture conveys

Ya… I am not a "how to" photographer. It's a style I have worked on for years. :) Practice, shoot, edit, try again. School of hard knocks. It's good for you!!! Go out and shoot. :)

Shanty Creek was a profoto bat pack, 2 profoto d1 1000ws heads and 2 beauty dishes. The camera was a Hassy 3DII. My theory is, your selling your client short if you are not willing to use all of your tricks in your bag. "Why do you use all the lights". reply. "Well, I'm want the best for you, the client."  THANK GOODNESS for the 600EX-RTs, the 4 of them and the three Quantum Turbo 3 packs all fit in a messenger bag. Instead of a flight case, Also about 70lbs lighter.  :)  My chiropractor hates the 600ex-rts, her business has dropped dramatically from my studio and employeesUnfortunately, I do not blog well. A bit overwhelmed schedule wise. City to city, airport to airport. :(

(I mean basic camera settings, layout of the 4 600ex... just a quick napkin drawing would be great :) )

btw, I looked on your web and blog, didn't find it there, but while I'm bothering you... the Shanty Creek 2011 winter snowboarder, speedlites were involved as well, right... ?
Thank you

Ya… I am not a "how to" photographer. It's a style I have worked on for years. :) Practice, shoot, edit, try again. School of hard knocks. It's good for you!!! Go out and shoot. :)

Shanty Creek was a profoto bat pack, 2 profoto d1 1000ws heads and 2 beauty dishes. The camera was a Hassy 3DII. My theory is, your selling your client short if you are not willing to use all of your tricks in your bag. "Why do you use all the lights". reply. "Well, I'm want the best for you, the client."  THANK GOODNESS for the 600EX-RTs, the 4 of them and the three Quantum Turbo 3 packs all fit in a messenger bag. Instead of a flight case, Also about 70lbs lighter.  :)  My chiropractor hates the 600ex-rts, her business has dropped dramatically from my studio and employeesUnfortunately, I do not blog well. A bit overwhelmed schedule wise. City to city, airport to airport. :(

 :) ok, thanks,
and I hope speedlites are not going to be banned for hurting businesses (instead of hurting backs)  :)

The bat pack is sold. No need for large studio strobes and large clunky 40lbs battery packs x2 on location in my world anymore. That is where the 600ex-rts rock! Same look, you can overpower the sun, and not break your back doing it.

The first and last pictures were shot in Indonesia (with a 60D) and the middle one I took in Vietnam a couple of years ago with my ancient 300D, really loved that camera sadly it doesn't work anymore.

Sorry, but way too much retouching for my tastes.  It looks like all the texture of her skin is just simply gone.  She doesn't even look human to me in this shot.  The color seems a bit off to me as well.
Title: Re: Post your best portraits(street, studio, candid etc...).
Post by: Harry Muff on April 25, 2013, 02:57:26 PM
There's plenty of texture in the skin in the original. This is how pro dodging and burning looks. No different to any Loreal advert or similar. The colour was intentional.


I don't recall asking for critiques, but since we are giving them out...

Is she marrying the Phantom Of The Opera?


(http://www.prgstudios.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/MG_4489.jpg)


Really not sure what to say here except that you do know that the eyes should be in focus, right? Then there's the hair, the make-up, the skin...




The basic morals of this story are:

A: Don't criticise when you're no better.

B: Simple forum etiquette dictates that critiques must be solicited, not just dished out. Or you may find yourself on the receiving end...

I think it is a nice portrait! Her elbow looks a bit sharper than the eyes - maybe your camera/lens setup needs some AFMA? I could be wrong tough.
It also looks like it is a bit blurry due to camera shake, maybe use a faster shutter speed?
Despite of that I really like the picture - nice composition and the aperture used seems just right!

Some very nice portraits all around in this post. I am just getting started in portrait work and I have set up a simple Tumblr blog. Any feedback is very welcome. http://portraitsbyjavi.tumblr.com/ (http://portraitsbyjavi.tumblr.com/)

I am looking to break away a bit from the typical vertical portrait all the time and include more of the location along with the subject. Currently shooting only outdoors with available light, a 5D MKII 24-700, 85mm and the occasional shot with the pancake 40mm. Sorry if I have broken any rules by posting my tumblr. I am a newbie at posting here also but I feel like I have learned a lot from all of you.

Some very nice portraits all around in this post. I am just getting started in portrait work and I have set up a simple Tumblr blog. Any feedback is very welcome. http://portraitsbyjavi.tumblr.com/ (http://portraitsbyjavi.tumblr.com/)

I am looking to break away a bit from the typical vertical portrait all the time and include more of the location along with the subject. Currently shooting only outdoors with available light, a 5D MKII 24-700, 85mm and the occasional shot with the pancake 40mm. Sorry if I have broken any rules by posting my tumblr. I am a newbie at posting here also but I feel like I have learned a lot from all of you.

I like the shots :) On a couple of the shots of kids you have a birds POV, and to me that is not optimal, since imho it signalize their child status, as opposed to their individuality.

Best,

G

Just a couple of minor criticisms:

The pic of Lukas (kid in front of brick wall) could have been framed better so the piece of earth in the lower left corner isn't seen. The lines of brick converging off behind Lukas looks pretty neat but the earth in the corner distracts the eye.

The shot of Avtandil would maybe be better if either the metal structure on the right of shot wasn't there or, better yet, Avtandil was interacting with it - maybe leaning his body against it or just having his hand on it.

Hope that gives you some inspiration.

Best wishes.

A double portrait of two of my friends. Age 5 and 70'ish.
Meant to illustrate the life-time-span - and the thoughts that go with it.

Both photos were made in same natural lighting, same time of day (though different days), same position of person and window.
Quite some work - both taking the photos and afterwards in Post.
Worth it - for me at least.

As models are my thing. I'll post here some examples of my portfolio.
I'm not very experienced in technique and such, but I'm a very motivated person.
I love to shoot girls, but I don't like to retouch them  as hell.
I try to keep my retouch very basic.
Don't work for a magazine, so I don't make them  look like fake plastic dolls.
Hope you'll like it!

There's no special settings here, just 160th at f11, 100 ISO with a 5D3 and 100L 2.8 IS. Lighting was a mixture of Bowens and Elinchrom strobes with a beauty dish.




The rest was about 5 hours in Photoshop.

Head shot from March 2014.

[Image removed, retouched image by privatebydesign appears later in the thread.]

Not sure how this will look to others.

When using the "save for web" option in Photoshop, the image looks oversaturated when viewing it on the forum page.

I saved the "regular" file (not "saved for web"), and it looks fine on the forum page.

When I click on the link to view it in an image viewer (e.g., IrfanView, Windows Photo Viewer), it looks desaturated and dull.

She looks great to me, very nice!   Only one small critique, her left eye looks like a black hole...needs to be slightly lighter.   IMHO

You're absolutely right about that eye, Northstar.  Non-photographer folks like the shot very much.  Anytime someone in photography or art views the shot, they see that black eye.  I wish I could go back in time and have her move that lock of hair!

Here is a photo where both eyes are visible.

Heres a few.

I like especially the top photograph.  Visually interesting are your model's direct, connected expression and eye contact, as well as the way you incorporate sublty a depth of field element into your composition (with the tack-sharp hair on the right of the frame and  the more softy rendered earring on the left).

Thank you notapro and an interesting note is that none of these are models but clients. It's amazing what proper lighting, location, and especially pose can make an normal person look at there very best.

Having someone naturally beautiful to start with (like a model) makes it simpler but the real challenge is making someone who is not of that caliber look great.

It wouldn't work on most images, I stole the good eye and copied and pasted it then did a free transform over to the other side of the face.

After 40 years I have decided to use artificial lights (!). Today I shot my first series ever, with multiple flashes and soft boxes, using 2 Canon 600EX-RT, mounted in Lastolite soft boxes, remotely controlled by a ST-E3-RT.

The portrait is of my very intellectual mentor, Morten. A great guy, with wisdom beyond most people´s imagination.

Well, not too much wrong with the Otus 85 then, lovely Images Eldar.

My Otus 85 is sitting in my Apartment, my Son picked it up for me, won't get to play until he meets us in December, Diving in Komodo, not with the Otus though.

This recent holiday I came away with all Zeiss Lenses with the exception of the 200f/2, challenges the Focussing skills that's for sure, especially in low light conditions.

Thanks,

Yes, the Otus 85 is just as good as the Otus 55. I am totally sold! Looking at the full resolution RAW files on my monitor, I wonder what these images would have looked like, if I had the (illusive) 50MP, 14 stop DR camera ...

I have never worked with artificial light before, beyond the occasional straight forward flash use. I must admit that it was fun and something I will be doing more of in the future.

Here´s one more, shot with the Otus 55. The Idea of this series was to capture his intellectual character, seasoned face and sharp eyes, and the immense respect I have for him.

Almaty Kazakhstan, girl sitting on a bench in front of the "metal cube" mall downtown.  Candid street photo. In Asia I often find that if you show people a photo of themselves they are more than happy to let you take more!  Generally I found the people there very welcoming, even if the local architecture was indistinguishable (mostly) from anywhere in the far flung provinces of the former Soviet Union.

I like this image, but (since you asked for feed-back) I would have liked to see a bit more detail in the shadow area of the face, especially to see the eye.

Forgot to add: Canon 5D MkII, 24-105L, Alien Bees into bounce umbrellas.  Since moving to Europe I flipped the Bees for Elinchrom BX500Ri lights and just this past month the 5D/24-105L has been replaced with a Sony A6000/Sigma DN kit.  None of this matters, really.  Without seeing the EXIF info no one would be able to tell what took which image.  Even printed very large.

Wow, how do you manage to take that many per year?  Are these individual portraits or are you counting all the shots you may take for one portrait?  Either way that a lot of snappin. That's 178 every day (365).  Yikes!

Thanks for the feedback! When I post the image online it tends to be darker in the shadows vs the original image on my computer. In the original image the left eye is visible in the shadows. Does the online compression affect the shadows?

Thank you so much, Darth! Yeah, that ninja-leaf sneaked in my shot there. But we decided to keep ist since we both love the photo. I had two models that day and letting them climb the tree was the best idea ever :D. Here is another one of a girl within the same tree. :)

A shot I took two years ago. Her beauty doesn't exactly shine through in this photo, but it has all the attitude needed...

Update: Lens was Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM @f/1.6 ISO 320. Focus is off (aimed at the eye). Image still has impact enough to be useful.

Thanks!  This is a young lady who I've been photographing a couple times a year since she was 14.  She's now a high school senior and this was a shot from the senior portfolio we're working on.

Experimenting with some vignetting and shading to help the eye focus on the subject and reduce background distractions.

This one is shot with a 5D III, 24-105L.  1600 ISO, 200th @ f4.0 and a 530EX II in ETTL.  I took a test shot without the strobe to get the ambient light exposure, then shot this one.  Strobe was shoe mounted.  I didn't do much to the original exposure in post, just some minor dodging and burning on the bike's paint to even it out.  Skin tones were perfect out of the camera. 
    Sara- my previous post, was shot with umbrellas.  7D, 24-105L ISO 100, F5.0, 1/100th.

Not a "typical" portrait, so please forgive.

Back story.  I was on the streets of Cuenca, Ecuador when I came upon this scene.   The door of the barber shop was wide open, and I had to shoot over people and other obstructions to get this shot.  I didn't do much editing.

I'd appreciate any comments and feedback, even if you don't like it.

Thanks.

Great shot. I love the colors, balance, expression and tone of the light for both the background and your subject.

Only one suggestion on a shot like this: if possible, light him from the other side so the direction of light from the strobe matches the setting sun (this would also mean switching the board to his other arm so as not to leave it in shadow -- those colors are brilliant). You did such a great job getting just the right quality and intensity of light to compliment the ambient -- it's just that the shadows are falling on the sun side! Had you lit from the left, then only the catch lights would have given away the use of additional lighting.

Still, very nicely done.

"Great shot. I love the colors, balance, expression and tone of the light for both the background and your subject."  +1    " the shadows are falling on the sun side! "  pourquoi pas? Sand and figure of a man do not have a strong light and shadows from the Sun. Okta normally drawn to the background light IMHO. Psychologically interesting humoristic pathos in facial expression. The task is solved portrait. I liked it.

Thanks, I agree. I actually shot this both ways but from the left he was too dark on the right and since we only had one light... I stuck with this composition. We scaled a 120 foot cliff with one very expensive strobe and about 15k in camera lighting. Locations shooting ain't that easy... there's always next time.

Here is the model we went down to shoot for the session... Drake just showed up and was a good opportunity  I could'nt pass up.

"Great shot. I love the colors, balance, expression and tone of the light for both the background and your subject."  +1    " the shadows are falling on the sun side! " 


pourquoi pas? Sand and figure of a man do not have a strong light and shadows from the Sun.


It's subtle enough that it doesn't spoil the image, but if you look at his face, the sea/sun side falls into shadow (look at the nose shadow and the darker right cheek to camera left). There's also a shadow from his body against the surf board. Finally, the surf board is lit when it would naturally be in shadow opposite the setting sun.

Again, it's subtle enough that the image is still excellent. Having the added light follow the same or similar path as the natural light would have put a little polish on an already fantastic image. Still a praiseworthy photograph, especially the balance between added and ambient light levels...

Ah...makes sense, especially with a single light. Sounds to me like you made the right call, especially for an unexpected opportunity. There are always compromises, and given the additional info, I'd say you nailed it. Even more impressed now than before... :)

The other thing to note... this is just after sundown... so no real light on any side of him and I wanted some of the views of the remaining light from the setting sun. Sun was actually behind him not to the left unfort. I did it from both the left and right but once home liked this version much better. My regret was not bringing in a second strobe to totally control the scene but would have required a third assistant. Here is one with his second board. This guy was over 50 and scaled the cliff like a billy goat! Once we got a few shots with the short board he wanted a couple with the gun.

Hindsight is often 20-20. Gotta do the best you can with what you have and expect. The image above is excellent as well. I see what you mean about wanting to have the remaining sunset behind him on that one...

Very nice!

It is the kind of situation where off camera lighting really would have lifted the image, just a cheap white umbrella and a speedlite over to your left and higher then drop the ambient exposure a touch, half a stop or so and you would have a really really nice picture.

Nice framing, nice pose and wardrobe too. keep it up!

Beautifully chosen colours. Absolutely tasteful. The background is a bit restless to my taste but if you wanted to underline the serenity of your model. I can see your point. Probably the advice of privatebydesign would have calmed it down. "Trying to learn"...well on the way if you ask me.

5D3 + 135L testing my new Profoto B1's

How are you liking the B1's? I'm thinking about getting a set of B2's

I rented some for an out of state shoot and fell in love with them. I own Elinchrom Rangers 1000ws and Quadra's 400ws too but just added 2 B1's. Battery life is ok, 500ws, ETTL (I never shoot ETTL though) and a decent trigger... overall I like them very much but prefer the mods from Elinchrom. So depending on where I go... like on serious location work I still use the Quadra's due to the weight and familiarity. The B1's and Rangers are for closer to home or parking lot locations. It all depends on what you're after... honestly at around 400ws you can do almost anything you need so really depends on the weight you're willing to haul  and the logistics of setup. Can't go wrong with any of them though, beautiful light from both makers. I haven't used the B2's though and they seem to be very much like the Quadra's except only 250ws... that might give you a hard time when trying to overpowering the sun. The Quadra's easily do that for me at 400ws but no ETTL.

Love to hear how they work for you though... not that I need new lights but interesting to see how they handle the field.

I don't think my first attempt at this was posted so will try again. Don't know if a photo can qualify as a portrait without any faces showing but it is candid and on the street. My granddaughter and my wife were walking and talking and I stopped to take this picture. I have always thought of it as a sweet picture but I am of course biased. I would be interested in hearing unbiased opinions of it. It seems so simple yet says a lot to me. It has always been a favorite of mine.

Here is a picture I would like some feedback on. My wife thinks this picture of our 2 week old grandaughter and her mom should be lighter to show our daughter-in-law better. I like it darker like this. My thoughts are viewers would probably assume it is her mother holding her. I think her almost silhouetted image acts as a frame and still conveys love and tenderness. Anyone care to offer opinions?

It seems so simple yet says a lot to me. It has always been a favorite of mine.

In 2012 my daughter got married. My mother was dying of cancer. The wedding was outside a golf course clubhouse overlooking a huge pond. Beautiful. The chairs were all empty and nobody at the podium yet. One of the photos the photographer took is of my dad just getting to the front row with my young (68) year old mother on his arm. The shot is from behind like yours. When I saw the photo weeks later it so moved me that I burst into tears. It still does that to me... four years later. I cannot look at it. There are no other people in the shot except mom and dad. The photo is the most emotionally evocative shot I have ever seen. To anyone else it probably means nothing. For me, it captures the absolute sadness I was feeling at the time for my mother and also the strength it took for her to be there. She wasn't going to let cancer stop her from being at and also dancing at her granddaughter's wedding. They were just two small subjects at the end of that long aisle. I think THAT is what you want a photo to do.

I think your photo is most beautiful. It has brought tears to my eyes, but in a much happier tone. My mother and my daughter were very close. I can see that in your photo too.

That's a great story. 
A photo may not mean a lot to another person, a great photo may win an "ahhhh, nice ...", but a photo that brings joy or memory means a lot to the owner of a photo.
I had to do an announcement once of a young woman because of a senseless violent act and I had to use her class photo and even though I saw her walking by the corridor a few times, the photo raised an emotion in me that tears fell.  Till this day, I still remember the photo.

CameraNut, a photo that brings joy is more than a good image, it is to be treasured.  Glad you love that moment.  May you have more.
-r


It seems so simple yet says a lot to me. It has always been a favorite of mine.

In 2012 my daughter got married. My mother was dying of cancer. The wedding was outside a golf course clubhouse overlooking a huge pond. Beautiful. The chairs were all empty and nobody at the podium yet. One of the photos the photographer took is of my dad just getting to the front row with my young (68) year old mother on his arm. The shot is from behind like yours. When I saw the photo weeks later it so moved me that I burst into tears. It still does that to me... four years later. I cannot look at it. There are no other people in the shot except mom and dad. The photo is the most emotionally evocative shot I have ever seen. To anyone else it probably means nothing. For me, it captures the absolute sadness I was feeling at the time for my mother and also the strength it took for her to be there. She wasn't going to let cancer stop her from being at and also dancing at her granddaughter's wedding. They were just two small subjects at the end of that long aisle. I think THAT is what you want a photo to do.

I think your photo is most beautiful. It has brought tears to my eyes, but in a much happier tone. My mother and my daughter were very close. I can see that in your photo too.

Even though they certainly look happy together in that trailer, you do know you're not supposed to transport the models in the trailer with the bike, right?   They're not just beautiful models, they're people too!  ;)  And on a side note, I sure wish our Boy Scout trailer looked that nice when we opened it!

If anyone's interested I was playing around with some tube lights to get the cats eye catchlights. Ideally kino flo's for balanced colour, but even normal unbalanced ones can have an interesting effect, especially with coloured hair.

To balance out the beautiful girls :)

This is August, an 84 year old farmer, living on a remote island on the northwest coast of Norway, with more character than I can put in words. He just received an award from the local dairy, for uninterrupted supply of milk, 15.000(!) days in a row. He has attended his cows, twice a day, every single day over that period, without as much as one single day of vacation.

Victoria.

I met Victoria in the parking lot of our local Wal-Mart. She agreed to pose for shots in a lot very nearby where there were some trees. She wasn't worried about time so I pulled a flash, stand, umbrella, and my camera out of the trunk of my car.

I was given some great advice. If I'd stepped back little further I'd have had both eyes in sharp focus.

Canon 5D mark III (1/160th, ISO 200, manual mode, pattern metering.) on tripod.
Canon EF 135L @ f/2
Flashpoint Streaklight 360 with a diffusion dome and 72" umbrella.

Great job!  It's tough when someone asks you to produce improvements on a previous project and come through as an amateur when that isn't something you're strong or confident in.   I hope it wasn't too stressful and you had some fun.

Normally, I would not post photos of people with recognizable faces in this country, but in this situation, the organizer of the race had included in the signup process for the participants a "Model Release" form.
Also, the race was broadcasted on TV and on the internet.
So, here goes ...
Also, I was tempting to experiment with a longer shutter speed to show movement in the photos.  Somewhat successful, but required a bit of sharpening at post.  In retrospect, I should have used Tv, instead of Av.  Oh, a learning experience.

Unfortunately he moved away yesterday with his family. Good kid. They'd only lived here a month or two. Now they're moving on again. Too bad.

Had a lot of fun taking him around to shoot and I let him use my gear. We'll miss him.

From my livingroom.

Love the BWs, hadn't see these yet Charles.

Thanks Pookie! That is my former sidekick, Josh.

Unfortunately he moved away yesterday with his family. Good kid. They'd only lived here a month or two. Now they're moving on again. Too bad.

Had a lot of fun taking him around to shoot and I let him use my gear. We'll miss him.

Bummer...

So I'll add another one while I'm here... I know I show a lot of outdoor strobe work but I carry cameras with me ALL the time. Street is one of my favorite pastimes for over 20 years (yikes, that just dated me pretty well).

It is funny how things work out. This young man was the bodyguard for a local model I was shooting a couple of months ago. He reluctantly let me shoot a few photos and ended up being a better subject than she was. I wish now that I had shot more photos of him.

The light and posing looks great. The sharpenss is perfect. Like in your former post the skin has a strong sepia toning, which is a bit distracting. Was this done intentionally?

Straight OOC (barrel distortion corrected), no cropping, no white balance correction, no retouch... nothing.

Although it's a fairly 'stock' photo, I still think it looks great Pookie.  It's well executed and although I don't have much experience with this type of shot, I suspect the lighting is harder than it looks in this scenario.  Did you have a flash hidden behind her firing upwards inside/under the dark overhang/background area?  Neat umbrella.  Strong contrast, saturation and blacks.  And of course you have the complimentary colors.  Textbook shot, eh?  It should make a great image for print!

Yea, it is quite commercial but that was what was requested. The lighting was a little tricky as it was in a fairly decent rain this Sunday. There is a larger 6'x6' white reflector on the other side of the road where I am and a Quadra into a BD socked to the right to fill the shadows. The trick was balancing it all so it didn't look too strobed. The major PITA was in pouring rain... 5D3's soaked to the bone along with the 70-200 II. The large reflector was open to the elements but heavily sandbagged. The Quadra was wrapped tightly in a clear 50gal garbage bag. Danielle was a trooper though and even went in a tank top for some soaked girl looks after we got the shots we needed. 

The umbrella... funny, bought it in the UK and it cost a mint. Every review I've seen of it comes from photographers, not actual people in need of rain gear  :o

At the risk of upsetting an uneasy truce, if the point was the heavy rain why is there no backlight to illuminate it?

Not being critical, just asking a genuine question.............

This was not a "rain" shoot per se. The client wanted wintery looks for a clothing catalogue; sweaters, jeans, tops. We dealt with what we had as the MUAH and crew was there & ready. We were supposed to shoot on the beach and work on lifestyle images for the clients website but the planned site was a no-go. I had scouted this bus stop weeks before so I knew we could at least get a few shots before calling it a day. The umbrella is just part of my personal props I bring to every site JIC. Lemonade from lemons... We are rescheduled for a do-over in a couple of weeks.

Normally I never share paid client images but this will be picked up for the newspaper next week so I thought I'd post up the image. Using a 15mm rect. fisheye on a 5D3 here during practice for the 50th anniversary of the Chamber Orchestra here in Palo Alto. Great music and loads of fun... it was hot as hell though and we sweat our a$$ off in here for 4+ hours. This is from rehearsal before the main show. Talk about mixed lighting and absolutely no flash photography whatsoever allowed... challenging to say the least.

Thanks Rusty... the  life of a wedding/event photographer for sure (odd lighting) but this one took the cake. All that blue green and orange stained glass the entire length and both sides of this church just made my heart sink when I entered the building. I usually scout at least a week before but a gig but the client had a venue change literally 2 days before the shoot. It was one of those moments where you just smile and say "Sure, we got this...". then we went out to get the gear and cried in the van for a few minutes  ;D

I saw these two out in public today in Vancouver, BC. They were with their wedding photographers, and had what looked like a huge wedding party. ( I saw 9-10 men all dressed the same, but only 2 woman dressed similar to the men) I was blown away by how gorgeous this couple looked.

This is a pretty heavy crop from a distance, obviously staying out of the way of both the couple and the photographers, unlike many others. 5d3, 70-200 f2.8Lis

Thought I'd drop a portrait or two  off here... after years of working with Canon I've gone retro. Shooting film... mainly medium format and Polaroid but a little large format too. Using a Polaroid 600se and a Mamiya RZ67 Pro II lately but picked up a nice M6 with a 50mm Noctilux for 35mm work. Still use the Canon's and a Pentax 645z for client work but many have now seen the film images I do for fun and I'm now getting requests for it. Nice to see clients still like the look of film.

Here are two with the RZ67... self developed and scanned with a V850.

Thought I'd add another set... I shot this day with three cameras. A 5D3 (since this is Canon Rumors), a Mamiya RZ67 Pro II ( Ektar 100, Porta 400) and a professional Polaroid 600SE (the Goose) using a medium format back and a modified Belair back for Fujifilm wide Instax instant film... it was a nice way to see all formats in play and compare shooting styles. BTW, the model, Amelia is someone I've shot with many times and seen her go from San Jose Saberkitten to fan ambassador/public relations for the San Francisco 49ers. She is also drop dead gorgeous and has such a positive attitude it's infectious. The film cameras are as old as she is and she's never taken a real film picture until this day ;)

First off... the 5D3 and a 24-70 II

Next the Mamiya RZ67 Pro II

My intent was to create a small series of 'Living people on a red background'.
The location supports this as a lot of the street environment is painted red.

Rarely post images of my children but since Dylan contributed a few I thought I'd get in on the action. This is my 4.5 year old on his first runs down the mountain in Tahoe. He didn't fall once and really took to it. Snowboarding is big in my family and this was a great start to my son's boarding career  ;D

Superb shot, great light control. Love how you include the softbox on the glasses, gives the right structural feel. Also nice job on keeping the nose shadow while still getting light under the hat.

Another 2 minute portrait of my daughter. She had such nice curls today, so I put up my IKEA curtain, drop the lamp and it literally took two minutes from when I started to hang the curtain until we were done. Because if I'm any slower, she won't allow any shots, lol :P

Thanks Click and Eldar!

Yes, it's the Softlighter White, I have considered buying the see through deflector to get rid of the dark center, but it crisps up the light as well, and I really don't want that. I have tried cloning it away, but not very good at it, so I just leave it :P

You will always have difficulty cloning a spherical object, the eyeball, far better to do a masked curves adjustment. Doing this maintains the shape and the detail of the eyelashes in the reflection too.

In some situations the shower cap does a reasonable job of reducing the center dark spot without making the light edgier/crisper.

Thank you! It is really valuable to hear what others see as good (or improvable) parts of your creative works.

Regarding your child portrait, I must say that I would consider getting a shot like that a winner one.

I really like the way you used the directionality of light to show the shape of those cheeks. What I personally would try to improve is the shadow side being rather dark. The background is mostly black and it looks like your setup might be hand-held which might make it a quick option to use a nearby white/bright wall/door for fill reflector and getting your dark background by just using inverse square law. Might require mighty black-out curtains for that kind of DOF, though...

On a slightly related topic: I've convinced my children there's a fun make-believe theme called "photographer", which incorporates setting up 2-3 light stands, camera on a tripod and a backdrop, then taking turns doing silly faces, pushing shutter button, lots of flashing lights and generally having a laugh. Then it's time to pack down. Ususally I end up with a few surprisingly usable pictures. I also get help (dis)assembling softboxes and keeping track of power cords. Probably works best with children around 3-5 yo, though.

Agreed with the rather dark shadowside. This was just reeeaally quick shot. For the more planned ones I go outside and use the sun as edge light quite often. I have a stripbox with grid, and the speedlite speedring for Profoto, I only lack the actual speedlite :P :P I most often use the gray curtain, not the black one that helps the shadowside. The colors pop more with the darker background.

Hasselblad H6D, 120mm f4 Macro II

That image has excellent resolution and sharpness, and you wife stands up to that degree of resolution very well. However I have found without exception that any woman I photograph over the age of about eighteen demands that the images are softened ! Indeed as the ladies get older it is demanded that I produce the "Star-Trek female close-up shot" degree of softness ! (Apologies if you've never seen Star-Trek, the original series  ;) )

Yes Miles, I believe you are right. My wife is an exception. She knows what she looks like and accepts that ... and so do I :)

The H6D 100c´s resolution is simply crazy and it reveals every single imperfection there is. However, I really enjoy working with that resolution, combined with 16 bit colour depth and 15 stops of DR. It is far  behind the likes of Canon when it comes to AF and any form of speed. So I believe the only use I will give it is (very) slow photography, preferably on a tripod, even though it is surprisingly simple to hand hold.

And yes, I am old enough to have seen the original Star-Trek ;)

At the risk of getting yet another ban, Sporgon lives in the UK so he is well versed in the difference between goosebumps and nipples.

I think he was referring to these areas. Which do look like goosebumps but I suspect aren't. They are probably just a result of the B&W processing, I find that can happen if you do a B&W conversion of a color image you have previously given a 'film like' or cross process manipulation to.

Yea, 90 degree temps... actually too hot and this was scrimmed. I actually loathe plastic "correction" of natural skin aka the "star trek" look.Just a note for future reference, don't reproduce my images in any form without my consent in the future.  That I will complain about with the admin of this site.

My point was it doesn't matter if you don't like it or not anybody can legitimately, ethically and legally, do it, if you don't like that then you'd be better advised to just not post those images.

Besides, I did not reproduce your image, I cropped a small section to illustrate a specific point being made about that one image, leading to my next point. Posting one of my own images really wouldn't have added to the answer so I'm not quite sure how that makes me a "coward".  ::)

What I don't like is taking parts of my work, not the whole. Copy and paste the link all you want but when you start to manipulate the image without consent it crosses a line. As a photographer I would hope you would understand this point but my fault is apparently in thinking you are photographer.

I asked you not to reproduce my work without my consent. If you were a person of integrity you would understand the request. A coward in this circumstance is one who can't muster the strength to post their own portraits for fear of exposure, they can only copy others work. Take a look at this thread... where are your posts with your portraits? Can't find any can you. So you come here to copy others work and comment... yet can't find the courage to post yourself. The coward title is supremely fitting. In the photography world, the lowest form are those that take others work and "use" them for their own purpose, whatever they may be. Plain and simple.

Go ahead, copy all you want. We'll just call it for what it truly is... a pathetic, cowardly act.

I think he was referring to these areas. Which do look like goosebumps but I suspect aren't. They are probably just a result of the B&W processing, I find that can happen if you do a B&W conversion of a color image you have previously given a 'film like' or cross process manipulation to.

You're quite right, and I think the black and white conversion hasn't helped. The image just looks chilly to me, especially with the wind blown hair. I've also found that over use of tonal contrast or 'clarity' can give this effect too, and I see it to a certain extent in the previous colour image of the same model.

Yes Miles, I believe you are right. My wife is an exception. She knows what she looks like and accepts that ... and so do I :)

Elder, you're a lucky man !

The other side of the fence...horse getting to know granddaughter.

Canon 5DII + EF 2/100 @ f/2.2 1/2500, ISO 160

The EF 100 f/2 is the forgotten lens in the EF line up; "slower" and more expensive than the 1.8/85, not as exotic as the 135L, but it is better than both those lenses at f/2.

Every time you post a picture with the 200 f2, Sporgon it stops me dead in my tracks. It's obviously a beautiful lens in the hand of someone who knows how to get the best out of it.

Many thanks Mikehit, but it's a 100 f/2, not 200 f/2 ! Stumping up the cash for an EF 200 f/2 would break my heart !

Here in the bay area of California or really anywhere in the southwest of the US anyone can understand the need to play in the sprinklers right about now. It's been a real scorcher. Had the afternoon all to myself with the boys... sprinkler fun  ;D

Negatives from a Mamiya RZ67 Pro II shoot, "scanned" with a Canon 5D Mark IV w/ 100mm f/2.8 L Macro.

This has to be one of the worst ways to scan a negative... exceptionally time consuming compared to a scanner that can IR scan and remove dust from the image. Sure you can take a picture in the blink of an eye but then spend anywhere from 5-20 minutes "cleaning" the image. Or you could use a quality scanner that takes about 3-5 minutes depending on negative size and automatically removes these negative defects.

All of this is dependent on the quality of your scan... if you don't care about the end result then photo-scanning is fast... if you do care though and are looking for clean files, buy a good scanner and have a cup of tea while it works. When done you'll have a clean image and your good to go.
