p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nikon D3x+Steve McCurry + Pirelli Calendar


Hello,

I came across this behind the scenes clip of Steve McCurry, the NatGeo and Magnum photographer, shooting the 2013 Pirelli Calendar. The Pirelli Calendar is a limited editon much sought after calendar. There is one up on EBAY for $1000. For those of you who appreciate Steve McCurry's work it's a great video of the setup and images for the calendar. His use of natural light, texture, and color is amazing. For the Nikon fans a lot of the images were taken on a Nikon D3x and a medium format body as well.

If you have some time it's worth the look.

I want to take lessons from his PP people - looks like a bunch of use of tasteful HDR type work to me. Great vid.

Just finished watching this - started it the other day. Again, man, I want to be able to process like that. Beautiful city, beautiful girls, and a peek into some setups for a world class photog. What's not to like?

I don't think he used a lens hood once :-)

He used a lot of LED light panels in most of the shots.

It is unfortunate that HDR has come to mean "heavy saturation and contrast"... First off, this isn't HDR, and "tasteful HDR" to me means that you can't tell HDR was used at all. "Bad HDR" means heavy saturation and contrast. If you want your images to look like these, just crank the shadows and vibrancy sliders way up.

I understand that a lot of people would consider these overcooked but with the backdrop of Rio and the graffiti and flavor of the favelas, for me it works very well. I can take some 36mp portraits I've shot on the D800, crank up the shadows and vibrancy, and it doesn't do the same thing for me. It looks like there was some real skill applied here to me

My greatest weakness is probably PP skills right now so I'm hungry to learn different approaches
