Good try Jason. It looks too fake to me though.

Not sure, that's why I am asking if I should mess with that? and if so, what should I mess with?

Have you read some of this thread? There have been plenty of discussions about this sorta thing. I'd recommend browsing through. Custom functions are there for a reason, I'm not sure why you'd be asking about using them.

I thought the same, so I tried copying the Before and After images to stacked layers. Adjusting the Before image (on top) to 60% opacity looked pretty good to me.


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

Long story short I was informed about a post on a local forum for someone looking for RE photogs.

I sent them and email with a link to my work and they got back. Very impressed and willing to offer $40 a shoot!

OHhhhhhhhhhh baby! Soooooooooooo tempting!!!!

NOT!

hahaha

Good luck finding quality work for that price! Yikes!

Got a direct print button on your camera?? Walk in, take one green box snapshot, connect to printer, print. Hold out hand for $40 :D

(That is, if the location is rather close by)

Hello Everyone!

I'm a little late to the thread, but I've been around for a while. I'm a photographer based in SW Kansas. To stay busy out here, I shoot a little bit of everything.

I heard about Mike Kelly on Strobist, then stumbled across his posts here. Mike inspired me to do composite lighting. Previously, I only used available light + HDR. I'm still looking for the right 'marketable' blend of the two for my area.

Last week, I challenged myself to shoot something BIG and light it...

QUOTED IMAGE


QUOTED IMAGE

The tops of the silos have some WA distortion, but there's a highway a little further back so moving back isn't really option.

I like this a lot!

PS trial ended for me but I'll take your word for it. :cool: It's not a bad shot at all, it just needs an adjustment.

Wow. That sorta stuff is so hilarious and maddening at the same time. Reminds me of two online letters (I think two) that were hilarious rants from a guy who had his camera stolen, addressed to his thief. The victim and your situation just have funny similarities in that it's a rip-off.

bw! I'd totally do it and thanks for the idea because I'm definitely doing it now and will inform this forum when I do.

Thanks for the feedback everyone,

I was going for a more surreal look on this one. I see these gray concrete towers everyday, so I really wanted to create an image of how they 'could' look, not how they actually appear. But I do want it to look realistic. Perhaps this disqualifies the image as true architectural photography. Sorry if that's the case.

IIGQ4U: I messaged you back with a link to a couple of 'how it was made' videos from similar shoots. The individual layers are combined so that only the lighted areas are visible. There's several other steps and adjustments. Mike Kelly shows some of the other things in his videos.


Always Learning! ;)

I like your result, except that the lighting on the darker towers doesn't ring true. It doesn't look like it's coming from an expected light source. If that same lighting were off to either side of the towers, I'd like the photo much more. When I did the blend of the two photos, I lost some of the vibrance in your edit but also managed to lose the spotlight effect on the towers.

But I'm just being nit-picky. Overall, it's a great photo.

Some recent non-glamorous commercial real-estate shots. Find that I'm getting a little chromatic aberration with the 24mm TS-E MK 1 — gonna need to make a lightroom profile to correct for it.

Building of focus is the white building. The weird patterns are a result of light reflecting off the building across the street.

Do you have a CPL filter? Could help with the reflections on the glass.

I do, but the interior of the building was under renovations. Though, I probably should've shot with it on and with it off. Will do for next time!
