Have a Great Weekend!

Jul 22

In Lighting at 8:40am

Heading home from Santa Fe. Again, thanks to all for this very hectic week on the blog, with the new site posting, and all the comments. It’s been terrific. Thanks to Drew,  Mike Cali, and Lynda Peckham at the studio. I’ve been doing this a long time, and those poor folks went through lots of pictures.

Next week, I’ll be posting some new results from a line of light shaping tools I worked to develop with Lastolite. They’re pretty cool, and I worked this past couple weeks pretty intensively with them. An example below….

I used the rubber stamp tool to clone out a tiny nick in the wall of the background.  (I know, I know, I’m getting fancy with the post production stuff….) But other than that, nothing. This is the quality of light right out of the camera, which I’m pretty happy with. TTL, small flash solution. More tk…..

Another simple yet great image from a master of light.

Was this done with SB900s Joe?

Awesome photo. If she isn’t an authentic cowgirl, you sure fooled me. Must be all that post production work :)

BTW: the Lastolite link isn’t working. Looks like it is set to http://http//www.lasto

Great post as always. The new website is great as well. Can’t wait to hear more about the Lastolite gear.

Post-production is what it is. And I’m good at post-production. But the stuff you create with one flash beats most studio post hands down. Simple and elegant solution FTW.

Amazing indeed! Such a warm volume, and I do love the colour.

Just lovely. But photoshop is a slippery slope! One day it’s the rubber stamp tool, the next it’s puppet warp, and then next thing you know you’re using content aware fill and doing HDR! Just be careful.

Love the lastolite material Joe have to get some myself but lastolite in the Netherlands is not really supportive ;)

About photoshop, don’t worry “why fake it, when you can create it ” ;)

See you at Vegas.
