I think you got lots of talent looking at your photo nothing wrong with it Zane.
Being able to make shots like that makes you rich don't know about the bum part but i think you do al-right in my book

Ok Brain Trust, check this photographer's site out and tell me what you think.

Certainly there is a ton of additional lighting in many of these images, but the captures where it's daytime and the interiors are completely lit, if you were tasked to emulate that technique, how would you do it. Some are pretty dramatic, many, i think are over done, but it's a matter of personal preference. I am just analyzing the photographer's technique.

You could set the camera up and shoot the daytime exposure, then light the blazes out of the home, never moving the camera and

He lost me at:

I've seen better (both here and elsewhere)

Thanks Everyone, for your thoughtful analysis. Really academic, the guy doesn't affect my bottom line, but our work crossed paths and I always like to dissect what successful people in my markets are doing. As I said, some of the interiors were striking, some didn't appeal to me at all. I find it interesting and informative to look around at what other people's clients like and don't like. One of the new clients that I have been blessed with, has me snowed under with work precisely because the previous photographer had a similar over the top, almost Thomas Kincaid style, and I'm in the process of reshooting a year's worth of architecture that has already been "shot".

I think one develops a style over the years, and while it's never good to barrel down the business highway with blinders on, if your style has garnered you success, it's not great idea to stray very far from it. I have the equipment and technical know how to light interiors that way, and do for clients whose taste run toward the dramatic. But I don't have a clue how to produce triple layered, less than realistic renditions like what were discussing. If I had to throw a dart at it, I'd say Professor Zim has nailed it.

Zane, the answer to your question is, "YES", people live in homes like those and much larger. God bless 'em too, because they are the names on or behind most of our checks, and we need to cherish them. The desire to move up from wherever we are in life, unless it becomes an all consuming obsession, is what get's us up in the morning to go out and do what we do. Thinking about the goals I have set for myself and where I want to be, what I want to know, be able to do, what I want to live in, what I'd like to fly, what camera gear I'd like to have, are all things that make challenging days tolerable, blood sweat and tears worth investing. The day I'm no longer gazing at the next rung in some ladder, will be a very sad day indeed, and I hope I never achieve every rung either, it's not good to have attained all of one's dreams.

Today was one of those days that we all have, a day spent trying to make lemonade out of road apples. Very frustrating, beneath my skill level, several times I wanted to tell someone that they had me mixed up with a newby who would be willing to put up with complete disorganization, and unrealistic expectations. My back hurt, my arm hurt, most everything hurt because I have been at break neck speeds for a couple of months. But, I did what needed to be done, organized and orchestrated what had not been, took three Advil and "got 'er dun", cuz I don't know any other way.

JW,
I think my the inflection in my comment did not com across in the text...
Do people actually live in these places? As in LIVE! Almost none of those photos give the spaces a 'homey' feeling. A home is warm and inviting, they are not an architectural drawing or idea. They are homes, living spaces. The plastic banana, rendered look gives no feeling or soul to the spaces.

I have zero care what people earn and or spend their money on. (if that were the case I could not be a warbird fan....talk about cubic dollars...ha!) No envy here...just wow!

Jan-
Thank you for the kind words. I do what I can with what I have.
And yeah...I'm a bum...airport bum of the highest order! lol

And now for the other side of the story. I spent my first 31 working years working hard to learn, improve myself and the organizations I worked for with great success. I spent the last 12+ years using my experience and knowledge to improve an organization while the rest of executive management was trying to tear it apart through their lack of knowledge and skill. That organization has been sold and is now treading water. I am very happy to wake up in the early morning to see what He has on display in the eastern sky, then waiting on the surprise He presents each evening in the west. In between I enjoy whatever my best girlfriend of 46 years has in store. Life on the front and back porch have never been better.

Dear Zane,

That inflection thing is endemic in all this digital communication. I understood what you meant and in no way meant to take you to task, sorry if it came off that way. Actually, much of what we photograph, people don't live in, they are idealistic models meant to immerse you in what could be, before you add kids, socks, peanut butter sandwiches, pets and all the other remnants of reality Typically from closing date forward, they never look like that again.

JW,
Isn't digital communication wonderful? thanks...it's all good!

Those two photos look like photos and have a warm, textural feel. Nice


Now for a sunset from last week for bed time!

Did someone say “peanut butter sandwiches”? Ah, now you’re talkin' – please make mine crunchy – oh and hold all that jello and jam stuff – that's for afters.

Edit for TOPP

Edit the edit - I have no idea why, but my pic vanished. It's on Flickr - just like always.

Here's a few from Taylor, during the final air race of the season.

Mark chose to race his Beech 18. He took off first to give everyone some passing practise ;-)


You can't see him in here, but this Beech's co-pilot is a dog


Dave gives me a wave (this was my aerial chariot, earlier that morning)


A typical Wayne takeoff, in this case on the morning after the race


Same guy, same technique, on race day


Midget Mustang


What I saw from my aerial chariot


This year's overall champion; Jeff Barnes, on takeoff


A moment of solemnity for our departed racers, Bob Axsom and Mark Hardin


We look forward to next season...
