This was taken in the basement of my studio. My studio is in a old fill factory building, and the basement has some excellent locations to shoot in. Here are a few more. All were shot with tungsten constant lighting through diffusers.

And we can't forget the ladies ;) This is shot in the same area with a different model.

Other than the last one being reallllllllly dark on my monitor (whereas the others look fine) I like the last one the very best. ;) Your studio does look intriguing!

Very cool shots, your studio is rather mysterious! I like the tungsten light used! Last picture is my pick.

Well being one of the ladies, I do like the last one quite a bit. :P The others are really nice too. :)

Very nice shots. I agree that the last one is a bit dark, but I understand what you were going for. The others are a bit too warm for my taste but it's a personal thing. Nice shots again.

Great lighting. I've always admired your work. Nice dramatic feel to these. How powerful were your lights?

I like the dimensionality your lighting gives to the images.

Thanks for all the comments.

I usually find some will prefer the darker tones, while others will prefer the lighter one. Whats hard for me when I hear those comments, is that I usually wonder if my monitor is out of calibration, and the images are actually darker than I intended. Its so subjective, and not everyones monitors are calibrated.

What I was going for in the last one, was a good shot of the model with good definition of his arms, chest, etc, and highlights off the machinery with deep shadows. Hopefully thats what shows.

#2 and #3 are lighter than intended, and should be closer to what is seen in #1. But all three lighter than the last.

Thanks again for the comments.

All I can say is - I'm gonna let you bring the models next time!!

I just couldn't seem to get comfortable with the model we had that day you came to do our workshop - I mean, I just don't think she was model material. But she was a local hired by one of the other shooters. I had not worked with before - not your fault at all.

Just like any other genre of photography - the subject has to hold interest - I think some models (male or female) do - and some don't. Nice images Steve - thanks for sharing.


Think about NOT using the word "retarded" in a derogatory manner - it insults those who cannot defend themselves - and hurts the ones who love them. Please see: http://www.r-word.org/ (external link)

I do think the models we had that day were ok, and don't think they had much experience which was part of the issue. They did serve the intended purpose, but I think a more experienced model would have brought more to the table.

I usually like to hire the models, and try to bring in ones I've worked with before and know their experience and limitations. I'm hiring the models for the Boston workshop, and all are very good, and I'm pleased with all of them. Should be a good workshop!
