My very brief and limited experience with doing this in Photoshop says that the pen tool is my favorite. Takes me forever, but I love the results.

On an unrelated note, the last of my office furniture has arrived. I'm now starting to think about which images to print and hang, and unpacking more boxes of stuff. I should be fully moved in by June.

Marcia and I went flying this morning because, well, we wanted to go flying yesterday and it didn't work out. I wasn't expecting to shoot anything; most of the snow has melted and things look generally pretty ratty when that happens. Besides, there was a layer of high cirrus blocking the sun and the light was kinda flat. But, aging Boy Scout that I am, I took the D800 with the 24-70 and the CP, anyway.

I'm glad I did, if only for this: Red Rocks Amphitheater, a 9500-seat venue for outdoor concerts west of Denver. Stereo-X pair, for those who can free view these things.

Guys, hug your wives an extra time or two today and tell them what they mean to you. I went to shore a good friend up this morning as he buried the love of his life. She's in Christ's arms, but he's going to be hurting until they are together again. It was especially poignant, because their relationship was like the one Sheila and I have, they were inseparable. Rosemary was 78 and they had a wonderful life together, still the loss is palpable.

Off now to shoot the mundane, clothed in mostly dormant landscape. Maybe dusk will help. Much as I like the work, the lingering question is, " why do folks ask you to shoot crud?" In situations like this, you have to ask the modified question, "do I want the invoice, or not?!" The answer is the same......"Yup!"

Thanks so much for the comments and critique - please never hold back on account of hurting my feelings, you wont. Those are all very great points and its funny after reading them they seem sorta obvious. but trust me they never entered my mind! I'm terrible at directing models on what to do and how to pose - i find myself standing there waiting to shoot while they're standing there looking at me waiting for to tell them how to be.

But JW's post pretty much summed it up, and add to the fact it was a high

The lighting seemed spot on for my taste. The only other additional idea I would have there is perhaps a fill light behind the car, but not even sure if it would enhance the image or blow out the highlights.

The few times I have attempted to direct people, I had the same issue

Great composite Mike! I was confused with the "Mig" call sign until I saw his name which led me to this:

Kinda like the last line in Jimmy Doolittle's book, I could never be so lucky again...

That's the best shot of the whole set of this aircraft, Glenn. Beautiful.

I would suggest putting in a half-hour into carefully masking out the aircraft and then brightening it up a little to create better separation from the background and make it better-lit... but not too much, just a subtle difference like maybe a half-stop brighter. My personal bias.



Good idea Rodolfo - thanks dude!

My attempt at a composite image as inspired by Messrs. Luedey. While not up to Mike's high standards - it is a start. C&C would be much appreciated. BTW, this Viper driver is the squadron commander. I would not what this young lady unhappy with me

oh wow Jeff! Where to start?? I absolutely LOVE the head-on shot and the processing. Your usual sharp lines at work there for sure. The other thing I really like is the personality in the pilot profile (the hand gesture).
The only tiny thing I 'might' do is remove the hillside from the left side off the nose in the profile shot. It would give it a nice floating look. Having said that, you could also leave it. I think the Squadron Commander would LOVE this on her wall.


I just finished one for a former A-10 West Demo driver but I'm thinking of sending this one out to CFB Bagotville in a frame. "Paco" was a complete joy to meet last summer.

You set the bar very high my brother. Thanks for the kind comments. I was torn on the hillside issue and will go back, try your alternative, and see what rings my bell. Thanks for sharing the talent Mike - it is much appreciated.
