Re: the run down Hilton, our Hilton is Seattle Airport.....whew!


better.

I'm on the fence here.

I'm just over the border in Langley, BC. Without border waits it's about 2 hours to Seattle. That's a lot of driving despite being somewhat close. I could fly there a whole lot quicker. Would be nice to avoid the hotel costs if possible but it might be unavoidable

Glenn Buddy, one of the things that can help you in those situations, is to have a person or two, preferably a female, looking over your shoulder. They pick up on things we miss, hand positions, a blowing lapel, a collar that isn't perfectly in position, Women have a wonderful sense for those details while we run around with our hair on fire just trying to light it, shoot it, and have it be over. Miss Nadya would be a tremendous asset when you have those types of assignments.....um, come to think of it, Miss Nadya is a tremendous asset no matter wht you might be doing! See if there's someone on the client's team who can provide an extra set of eyes for you, it's too much for one person to oversee. As your clients and budgets grow, you'll begin pulling in stylists to help you with that kind of stuff. The downside is, then you have additional people to manage, because any way you slice it, you are the ring master, and the end product, great or sorry, depends upon you. Ease into it, like you are. You will find yourself less and less hesitant to direct people. I know exactly where you're coming from, when I began, I missed a lot of stuff, I was so wound up that I just wanted to shoot something and have it be over, before it all came unravelled. Time and familiarity with your equipment, and those scenarios will gradually put you in control of most anything the client/weather can throw at you. You've seen me under pressure, I get very quiet and focused, partly because that looks better and inspires more confidence than looking terrified to those around you.

You got it, you're on the right track, roll on. And, um, they say it's a good idea not to break out new gear for the first time on a shoot. I personally have found that advice to be over rated, but then I find stark terror a real motivator.

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.

+1! This one screams out for all the TLC you can lavish on it in post. It'll be worth it!

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!"

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...
