The iphone must be the best camera alot of people have ever owned. I bought an RX100 for some everyday photography, I dont know what I was thinking, my iphone 4s is a great bit of kit for a carry around.

Anyway here is my newest composition:

Yep thats my macbook on its side so i could get the composition right in portrait mode (must be an easier way)

balancing my 7D on a spare bit of track, terrible idea, it moved slightly and made masking a nightmare

Taking one of the driver shots, wish I had only used one light for this

I very much like the post processing done here, could you share a tip or two on how it was done, especially the look of the ladies at the back.

Cheers John, yeah mate no problem, I've done a couple of step by step tutorials on some other comps I've produced here (external link) and here (external link).

quick explanation:
boost the highlights and shadows in lightroom
open in photoshop: soften the skin then burn the shadows and dodge the highlights (that gives the detail)
save down then reopen in lightroom
boost the clarity slider and slightly desaturate

this techniques relies on having the light just right, I usually have two 430exs through umbrellas left and right of the subjects.

Hope thats of use mate

First time playing with off camera flash with a light modifier (umbrella). Quite happy with the results. Still waiting on a 2nd flash to have another go at it.

Its gear, it can lay lots of places, concrete isn't going to hurt it if it is set down gently. People baby their gear to much.

You don't baby that shutter in the least!

I bet you screwed up the photo several times (bad timing, bad angle, wrong settings on camera etc.), and had to re-take the shoot again. Of course someone needs to empty the glass before re-shoot.

Which ones are those? Looking into triggers. I have a 430EX and a YN 560. I tried the optical space but it was too hit or miss.

They're the RF-603. Very nice triggers. Never had a problem with them. Also function as a wireless remote as well. For $30 for a pair you can't go wrong.
