can i ask you how come you didnt use a filter to create the same color lighting and then adjust your WB to cancel the yellow.orange lighting out? and then fine tune the WB on the PP? IMO i think the orange lighting is terrible...but besides that i like the shot

The vapor lights look really cool specially in print. The color adds to the atmosphere of the photo.

Sheldon N....very nice, please do elaborate on your pp.

Not too much to do in post on that one, light was really good so the file looked great straight out of camera.

I took out a few distracting elements (power poles, lines, signs, etc) warmed slightly and increased vibrance, opened shadows on her face a touch, dodged flowers at lower left and burned the vegetation below the flowers into the corner to emphasize the row. I also double processed the RAW and blended the layer on top to rescue a touch of the highlight detail in the sky and in her hair on the sunlit side. Most everything was fairly nuanced, no real strong edits.

Not too much strobe power required. Around 4.0 on the A channel if I recall correctly, which would be 3.5 stops down from max power of 1100 w/s. The Octa is just out of frame to camera right, probably only about 3-4 feet from her. Shot at f/5.6 ISO 100 1/60.

My friend is making a zombie movie where the zombies are killed by water. This was for the promotional poster. Flash placement should be fairly obvious. Didn't have any radio triggers so I had a friend hiding behind him and left the shutter open for a long time. There was a lot of moisture in the air which made the cool droplet effect.

used 1 strobe to light, and blended 4 exposures. Diffused the off camera strobe using a small white trash bucket(I know it sounds bootleg but works). Strobe was fired from camera left, camera right, below camera and top camera.

Is there some kind of rule not to quote the actual picture? Just kind of makes a mess and reposts images doesn't it?

Yes, it does.


cheers, juice (Canon shooter, Elinchrom lighter, but pretty much agnostic on brands.)
