HI Jason,

Nice shot but that style of post processing is better suited for female models.

Seriously Rob? I know you mean no disrespect to Jason, but I really think your comment was rather rude. I would have thought a professional like you would have seen the artistic value. I dont believe there is a manual on what is accepted and what isnt. I think in this case, your ego over rode your common sense.

My ego? Seriously? That's what you get from my comment?

Amazing.

no i think it was rather appropriate actually, men are supposed to look a little more rugged than that

if you re think it you will see Rob's point and it has nothing to do with ego :rolleyes:

^ Nice Jason! I think I'd ease up on the retouching a bit.. unless you were going for the CGI person look.. but the lighting is spot on! Great catch-light placement.. :)

You missed Brandon Si 's comment too.

The images looks like its good. I agree with these two about the PP being a bit much.

It seems leeport is the only one being rude in this thread.

Excellent shot. Did you gel the beauty dish? It has a warm look to it which matches the background ambient nicely.

Thanks. I warmed it a bit in post. I use a MacBeth color chart for color calibration. I wish I could easily gel the dish(es)/boxes.


FWIW, I did not think that the comment was rude, but on a forum, you cannot tell how something was said, and feelings get hurt. You just have to go with it, keep a stiff upper lip, and take the advice when it's from a respected photographer. Read Rob's other posts, he's humble, and very helpful, (and pretty damn talented). Advice for the future: when you post an image on a public forum realize people are different, some like vanilla, and some like chocolate. Post it up, be prepared to take it on the chin, don't cry about it if people don't like it or if they give you blunt advice (don't be so sensitive), after all, it's just an image, it's not personal. :D

The above exchange between rsieminski and myself makes me wonder now........has anyone figured out how to add color gels while shooting with a Beauty Dish?

I'm loving all the images I'm seeing here. I think I'm pulling the trigger on the PCB beauty dish this week. Hope to contribute something soon.

Love these. Can I ask what lens/body you used? And how do you link the flickr shots without it going back to your flickr profile, if that makes sense
