Dilon & Nigel

Posted on Wed 3rd May, 2006, 2:44pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/320, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, Focal length: 100mm,
Captured: 2nd May 2006, 1:29pm,

This was taken yesterday. Nigel (on the right) asked if I was paparazzi as I walked past and that was all the introduction I needed to start taking photos.

Also, for once I actually remembered to give out the address of the site, so if you're reading this guys, thank you.

The master Photoshop file for this shot has ended up with sixteen layers somehow. Probably a new record for me.

I think the colour adds to the atmosphere really well here, nice shot and has a certain US Film feel to it. Nice work.

16 layers :| WFT! doens't look like its had much processing at all? I like it great DOF, like :) PS whats the files size on that one then?

It's about 230 megs. Thank god for cheap hard drives, I say. Getting photos to look natural is hard bloody work. Really hard. It's much easier to just whack up the contrast and stick on some crazy effect. Coaxing out detail and getting good local contrast... That's the trick.

230MB? Lol. Still, it looks good. Nice one.

"doens't look like its had much processing at all?" Exactly - that's the secret to truly great processing, is to bring out all the detail, to make the scene look more realistic, to improve the dynamic range of the shot, without looking like it had a rough time in Photoshop.

230MB is a beast of a file to work with though, even just in terms of draining all your RAM (It doesn't help that Windows on a good day wants at least 50% of your RAM for itself). btw, how about removing the character limit on comments -

Jonathan Fleck, Thu 4th May, 2006, 12:13am
sometimes I'm inspired to leave a longer note than usual and keep running out of space!

Jamey, Thu 4th May, 2006, 8:13am
I've upped the number of characters to 600, is that alright? I didn't wanna make it unlimited because of spamming potential. Also the layout kinda hinges on not allowing line breaks, keeping the whole comment in one paragrah, so any more than 600 characters would be quite a long passage of text to read, I think.

Jonathan Fleck, Thu 4th May, 2006, 4:39pm
600 should be dandy :-)

SysAgent, Thu 4th May, 2006, 10:35pm
1,2,3,4..... ;-) I like this shot and it does look well for all 6000 layers you had to use in Photoshop, the "models" look very at ease with the camera.

A good, natural shot. Nice one.
