BEHIND THE PEPPER SCENE


Not so pretty from back here. That's why it's important to either sketch the scene prior or have a
good idea of how you want the final image to appear including the lighting.

Notice: black duvy clipped to shades. Two pieces of black foamcore pony clamped to C-stand, camera on a tripod with cable release. Leafy plant on right up on cribbage to adjust for the right height and angle to picture frame.
This was shot with a flash, the room is dark. There's a little light coming in through the shades but not enough to register at ISO 100.

Alternate post process.

STUDY OF A WEIRD SHAPED PEPPER

I woke up this morning with an urge to shoot something on my crafts table. After rummaging around the vegetable and fruit drawers I arranged them on the table thusly.

The only light is an Arri 300w fresnel fitted with a double scrim from the left. I placed two black pieces of foamcore together and with the light behind them I slowly pulled them apart until I got about a 2 inch sliver of light. Covered most of the slit with full CTO. (heavy orange filter)
left a little open on the bottom and slipped a piece of 250 diffusion over that. (that's the whitish blue light hitting the lime on the left.)

Shot with the D7000 on a tripod, tripped shutter with a cable release. Used a Nikkor 35mm/50mm DX lens at ISO 100, f3.5 at 1/20th ss.

THE POND ON VISTA CREEK

Made these images toward last year. I did post some at the time but can't remember precisely which ones. And since nothing else is happening at the moment with this heavy rain....

PORTRAITS ARE A PASSION

Portraits are a passion with me. Finding the right light for every different face is a challenge I gladly embrace. The face is in front of me, I have to find the right spot, grab the most beautiful photons I can muster and point them all in the right direction.
