I was out biking today, and a few guys were doing this large drop.
I grabbed my rarely used backup backup camera, and it was configured all wrong. Fuck knows what I was doing with it last! And I think buttons got bumped while it was rattling around on the floor of the car.
Anyway, I shot this guy doing cool things at ISO 25,000 on an old Olympus E-M1, and...
It's a confetti festival, if I'm being honest. This is the best I could do.
I'm trying to break away from 'as is' studio shots and apply a little creativity to my images... But it's difficult. I am a technician, not an artist.
But I quite like this colour treatment of a photo from last weekend.
This is Kirsty in the NFGstudio. ^__^
The same large client I complained about yesterday told me today that they didn't like the photos I took of a local park, because it didn't look like their example photos.
That's right, an old park covered in dead grass during a drought is not as pretty as a freshly laid lawn in a new park.
Also, I am sorry I couldn't get golden sunrise light in a swamp in a quarry in a gully.
A large client emailed me recently, saying they weren't totally happy with some shots from a recent production in a local park.
Part of the brief included some multi-layer composited scenes.
But when they requested the final list of images, no composites were requested, so I didn't send them any.
And then they said "the sky is too dramatic and competes with the foreground"
...They SPECIFICALLY asked me to not produce a white sky. Fuck OFF.
If you were silly enough to support NFGphoto on Patreon (a site that allows individuals to support artists with a monthly subscription), you'd get access to a blog so good it has 31 paid subscribers!
Check out all these amazing posts $2 gets you!
You could add to that total! If you were also silly. ;)
I just posted a Before & After analysis from a session with Aurelie a few days ago. There were a lot of tweaks made to this image!
Patreons of all levels can view the whole thing, but here's a preview!
When I set out to create the Pantheon Project, one thing I never considered was that people might be reluctant to share it because of all the nudity. "Oh hey, naked bodies, don't need my family and coworkers seeing THAT..."
Most of the participants are proud of being in the Project, but even they admit they haven't shared it.
I wouldn't have done it differently, but I'd have been more ready for this reception.
it's an awesome thing to have done. ^__^
It's finished. Ten months in the making. Thirty hard working bodies, 200 (ish) photos.
The Pantheon Project
It's totally OK if you share it around. ;)
Also, um, it's probably NSFW.
Full time photog in Brisbane, Australia. I shoot athletes, mostly.
