Re: Basic Head&Shoulders

Great work as always Ernst. The first image is one he will get a lot of commercial use out of but the second one is the stellar shot and the one he should be buying. Thanks for sharing a little of the business behind the session as well. Too many photographers today just hand it all over for some mi...

It generated all the power to run the street and porch lights in the area. Here are 2 very different views of ...

Re: Fast Hands

They say on of the key measurements of a boxer is his hand speed. If that is the case this guy must be pretty fast. The pose in the first looks awkward and his face timid where the pose is better in the second, sadly the face looks out of focus. I wouldn't have thought of rubber cement and am surpr...

Re: Blue Hour Swamp

Yes High Pass is a very useful tool and it is a sharpening too. By changing the layer blend modes you can get a huge range of effects from it. In looking at the post above I can see that the re-compression has really boosted the blue I added, on my system prior to upload it was at about 50% of that ...

Hmm, wouldn't have thought of rubber cement (even though I've used it so often). How much damage was done to the leather?

Re: Selfie a la Master Ernst

I went back to the basic with this one. Single light camera left, reflector camera right, BG light behind subject. I kept about a 2:1 ratio and played with it in post. 90% Lightroom, 10% Photoshop. Grain added in post. Unitas_Photography-0022.jpg This is exceptional, the only thing I might add is a...
