p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · New Obama White House portrait... guess what camera?


The official White House portrait for President Obama's second term has been posted...

I'll give you a clue as to the camera model...

It's got a "III" in it. And the letter D. And a 5.

From:

No political talk, please! I believe his last photo was taken with a 5D, as well. Clearly they like teh Canonz!

it wouldn't look so good if they under exposed by ten stops then brought it back by 15.

I guess they use the "cheap" cameras for the President. Our nation's highest ranking General, Chief of Staff, Gen. Raymond T. Odierno it captured by MF.

True to form for the military, they probably bought the thing just for his picture

It's a location thing. Pentagon Staff are taken on location in their official photo setup. I've looked at the exif Official portrait of Leon Panetta as United States Secretary of Defense. Same setup... I could see that rational for the Presidential picture though, I just hope Pete Souza didn't let him hold it this time!!!

Exactly. Now it's sitting in a shelf where it shall remain for the next thirty years.

Is that lint or dandruff all over his coat? Did he sneeze in his right elbow? Will someone please teach him how to properly tie a Double Windsor? The double catch light...

Wow, a lot more gray hair in the recent photograph vs the one from 4 years ago. I guess being the President will do that to you.

Yes, it's impressive (maybe in a bad, stressful way?) to see the aging this charge does to you.

I was still working at State when we printed the first one for Embassies, etc. The first used a key light on the side, which in a full face pose has the net effect of making the face look very asymmetrical.

This new one has a similar facial angle with two equal lights crossed from near the sides of the camera and slightly overhead. The reflection of one of the soft boxes can be seen on the watch. The rim light from the back and right adds nice separation with the background and the impression of 3D space the first one lacked. That's a pretty standard TV news lighting set-up. Vertically centered key and fill would have created more natural symmetrical modeling that would work well on his face.

The squared off cross arm pose projects confident body language but would have been better if the left hand wasn't tucked in making it look like a stump. Probably sore from signing all those executive orders.

Time does that to all of us who are lucky enough to experience it.

Ageing sucks, but it's better than the alternative.

"O" sure has aged a lot in four years. Must be stressful doing all that work and not getting much done!
