I flew home from LGA to DEN on Friday last week in the late afternoon. Here's a stereo-X pair of the ridges and valleys of the Appalachian chain north of Harrisburg, PA. The Susquehanna River is visible on the right side of the frame, and the town of Williamsport can be seen in the east-west portion of the river valley in the middle distance on the left. Just out of frame at left is Lock Haven, where Piper built J-3 Cubs, and many other airplanes, from 1937 to the mid-80's, though much production was lost when catastrophic flooding of the Susquehanna in 1972, in the aftermath of Hurricane Agnes, filled the facility with water and debris to a height of 16 feet above the factory floor. I was living and working in eastern PA during that time, and I remember that storm well: a week of unrelenting, wind driven, soaking rains.

Here's another Stereo-X pair, this time of a statuary niche in Florence, Italy, on the facade of the Orsanmichele Church and Museum.

That reminds me; I took some 3D pairs on my flight back from Reno. Here's one of 'em. No idea where it is; somewhere out West I guess...

I have a curiosity I'd like to have satisfied: Are most of you regular photographers on this thread also pilots, or just a lot of you?

I am an RC pilot I fly Discus Launch Gliders (DLG) and electric gliders.
Here is a glider I built from scratch:

I went to the world championship for DLGs in Denmark this year, to help out as an official timekeeper. Here is the US team during the opening ceremony, next to the teams from Russia, Ukraine, Norway and Japan.

Gliders are launched by by discus throws:

That's a new one on me. I built a couple of HLGs in the '80s, but I'd never heard of DLG. You must have to reinforce one wingtip quite well, I'd presume... I never flew any model, powered or sailplane, with a V tail; do you notice any difference in the response to your control inputs?

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

http://www.ericfigge.com

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 expose for that in the evening. I suppose one could light paint the structure too, but I doubt that's how it's done.

You guys who are layer Gurus, is there some technique within PS that is used here? Just curious. Rumor has it that the artist is very pricey, bu pricey is good.

What do you all think?

OK Jim, I'll bite. I'm no guru at anything – except for being slow maybe – but the example image has me …..err... confused.
Horizontal shadows on the west facing elevation of a house anywhere near your home turf? OK, yes – possible in the north UK where I am – but near your location? For sure horizontal shadows mean that the “sun” is low in the sky – so the white fluffy cloud is a bit ...err.... “difficult” to get neutral with no colour in it. Oh and I like the way the strong side light has managed to avoid the grass in front of the fence!
Looking at the images on the web site I have to say that there is no lack of tricks being used – it's all there including the kitchen sink! I'm thinking that a lot of the interior images are done using B&W conversions blended back in with layers in Luminosity and Soft Light modes.
Right, that's me done. I'll now stand to one side and await the arrival of wise council.

Good Morning Tim, and yes you are allowed. We are of the same opinion.

Good Morning Nick, and you have hit the nail on the head as well.

Interestingly, the photographer commands a day rate that makes mine look pale apparently. I don't get it, but then there's so much I don't get these days........

Thanks for responding Gentlemen! Have a wonderful day!! I'm off to shoot a project

This example is the only image of his I can see on my iPad, so I'll take a crack at it without knowing anything of his interior work.

I think the facade and interior were all done at night, with artificial light. Look at the shadows thrown by the two main setbacks: reading from right to left, the shadows get longer, which implies a light source at camera right, but not very far away. The Sun would throw shadows equal in length from both setbacks, assuming they're both the same depth (and it looks like they are). This also implies the use of an elliptical gradient filter in post, to even out the lighting across the facade.

There's another light source near the camera, dialed back to provide fill in the shadows; perhaps more than one, because there's a double shadow at the left setback, but only a single shadow at the right setback. There's a third light source behind the coach house at left, illuminating the side wall of the main house and the underside of the eave above it: it looks like he should have dialed that one down a bit more, because it's the brightest spot on the exterior. The grass in front of the fence and the sky were shot in daylight, but much closer to midday than the simulated sunset lighting he provided for the exterior would lead you to believe.

I don't know how many layers were composited together, but I'm guessing it's at least three, and probably several more: it would be easier to light the interior one space at a time, and certainly would take less gear. To my taste, the interior is over lit, and uninteresting.

The overall effect is a subtle disorientation--or perhaps a not so subtle disorientation--in the mind of the viewer, due to the multiple conflicting cues.

It amazes me how much talent is floating around here photography and business wise.
It would be something if you could bundle all that knowledge in to a company it would blow away the competition in work quality don't know about the financial site of things as I personally don't have much knowledge about that.
But I think if you deliver the quality the money will follow.

The bar is set higher again.

Hi all,

Jim, I through in my 2 cents too. Looking at many of his website's interior photo's I think he is also using HDR or layering the outside the window details into the photo on another layer. If he lit the inside to the point outside detail wasn't totally blown out I can't see how he would maintain much incandesant lighting visable. Just too much dynamic range in some of the photo's on his portfolio page to be one photo. At least my opinion.

As a complete amateur, no talent bum...and poor boy.

1. People actually live in these places?

2. Photographically speaking, to my eye, some of those interior shots are very well done. Amazing art. Then again some of them look like CGI renderings, the photography is gone. There is no soul to the photos, plastic looking furniture and wall coverings, texture free fabrics, funky and confused lighting.
Like the exterior shot you posted...its incongruent. Noon day clouds, sunset shadows, night lit windows. and rain water on the pavement... trying too hard.

BUT...if the client thinks is happy and pays the money then who am I to complain? He's making more than I am at "photography".

The DLGs are mainly built from carbon and kevlar to be strong enough to take the throw and light enough to glide well. They have a cross tail with the rudder going up and down to reduce twist on the tail. As for the other gliders, I do not find that there is any difference in handling between a V-tail and a concentional cross tail.

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
