Well the original thread by Evman is now at least two years old but if anyone wants to see what we all were doing back then just go here

But here we are, a new year so lets see what you've all done photography wise, also you Photokey users, this'll be interesting to see how you've done using the software seeing as more photography users have appeared on the website smile

Here's some of my work. http://www.flickr.com/photos/b3n_b4il/

Lets have a gander and happy new year. A few days late but ya'know.

I actually started the new year by heading out Friday morning for my first paying location photo shoot, shooting some furniture for a fantastic furniture maker that is a friend of mine. I'm still processing the images, but I'll get some online when I'm finished.

I really should wade through my other older photos and get some of them online.

My work is all at my site:

http://cpostudios.com

I've also been working for http://blackhawk.com as a photographer/graphic designer and it's been awesome. I recently went to Missouri for a shoot and here's some of the raw stuff I came up with:

You still sporting the Canon Rebel? Good quality stuff!

The Blackhawk stuff is really cool, but the aspect ratio you chose for those kind of makes it seem a lot less "pro".

Yep but upgraded to the XSi. As for the Blackhawk stuff, that is just raw images straight from the camera, I'll mess with cropping and whatnot when I decide which are going in my gallery.

Good to see you're still doing photography there Serpent!
Whats the focal length off your huge lense?

I have a Nikon D40 myself with a teleconvertor thing attached to increase the lenses zoom, heh.

Also you mentioned your images as being raw, are you on about the shooting format? Shooting in RAW or JPEG?

I would show you a very rare and unreleased photo of Amelia Earhart that my Uncle's dad took but it is waaaaaay to valubal to be realeased free on the internet.
You could show us that...but it's not something you took is it now? And if you can't show it, why mention it?

Right, I've got some stuff online form my recent shoot now. Uploaded to Flickr here:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/axelwilkinson/sets/72157623145652888/

I also remembered that I've got a gallery online of some shots I took when I was sailing on a tallship last year. Some may look familiar to owners of the Pirates! backdrop pack for PhotoKey. Also, some shots from my trip to the Grand Canyon last spring. I had uploaded these at the time just so my friends and relatives could have a look, but since they're still online, I figured I may as well link you guys up. These two galleries are really just snapshots, not actually proper photography, but there's still some decent stuff in there. I should really re-process some of that stuff in Aperture someday, but that's for another time.

http://www.belowthesmile.com/grandcanyon/index.html

All my stuff thus far is shot with a Canon Digital Rebel XTi. End of this week I'll be getting my 7D delivered. biggrin biggrin

Nice chairs!
They're actually really well lit, was that with the big flood lights on them?

Any post-processing done at all on them besides the watermark being added in? smile
I've been awaiting the day your Twitter says you've recieved your 7D!

Those were lit using some very nice lights I got from Tubetape, with softboxes on them, yeah.

There's a fair bit of post-processing done, but almost exclusively on the backgrounds. The pieces themselves were only processed in that I shot RAW, and had to process the RAW to create a version for export. Then I went from Aperture into Photoshop to take care of the BG. We shot with a white background, sort of, but it needed lots of work to get it where I wanted. The actual background was a couple pieces of white laminate on the floor, and a couple white sheets hung up on the walls. Removing the actual background, including all the texture and folds in the sheets and the edges of the laminate sheets, while retaining the shadows created by the chairs and table, took a little time. Having a proper background setup would have greatly expedited things.

Tracking numbers say my 7D will arrive this Friday. I'm excited!

Ahh shooting in RAW is brilliant. I've heard off but never used Apeture, I currently use Adobe Lightroom to do all my RAW post-processing then move them into photoshop if anything needs touching up.
Heh, I know what you mean about the backgrounds, I've once used a lot of A4 paper in my shoots when I went through the "commericial photography" phase and used GIMP (At the time) to hide the edges of the papers so it looks like a nice big white sheet. smile

I hope your client is pleased with those photos though!

Yeah, Lightroom is quite nice as well, from what I've heard. I do like shooting in RAW though. Here's a sample image, showing the backdrop I shot, then the post-processed version.



The client took care of the setup on this one, which I sort of just walked into, so I ended up working with what I had.

They were quite pleased with the photos though (for comparison, look at the stuff they shot themselves at www.furniturestudio.com ), and plan to have me shoot their future work as well. At which point I'll hopefully handle the backdrop myself, to save some time in post.[/img]

I'll have to make a flicker because my photobucket is way to crowded. I'll get on that later.

Axeman - impressive enhancing in post, there! I had no idea the original background was so crinkled. I bet the client will be really pleased, they're a huge improvement over the ones currently on their website.

You should convince them to let you redo the navigation buttons and front page image for them next. wink

Thanks Tarn. Hehe, yeah, the website he currently has is quite awful. He basically did it himself, because he wanted to be able to update it himself, but we are trying to talk him out of that.

He could always just set up a web presence using something like Wordpress. You can still customise it a lot (it doesn't have to be the standard blog layout or structure) - there's nothing I can see on his current website that couldn't be ported over nicely, and he'd still be able to update it himself easily. Just a thought! smile

It seems a shame for such wonderful carpentry to be represented in such a lacklustre manner on the web.

Anyway, we can continue this elsewhere if need be, rather than cluttering up the photo topic. smile

I'm actually in my photography class at uni and it was only now that I discovered the Photography forum, rather fittingly.

This is my Flickr account that I had to set up for the class: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48035945@N02/ and here is a slideshow that I had to put together for it as well: http://upload.nickfreeland.net/movies/2010/photography/photographySlideshow.mov (19MB, mov)

Best pic I've ever taken. Not saying much though. Has a decent amount of digital grading on it. You guys know what I could do to improve it?

Oh, nice with a photography forum! I've been taking photos for the past few years, and getting more and more interested - me and a couple of friends have a small portfolio website over at frejoni.com where we post some pictures we've taken. To filter the images based on my photos, just click the quite disturbing photo of me at the far right, or "Browse All" to look through all the images.

Currently shooting on a Canon 50D using several fun lenses, with my favorite being an EF 85 F1,8 right now smile Focusing on portraits, and have also shot a few weddings, concerts and events as well.

Wow, it's been forever since I've posted on here. wink Looks like I'm gonna have to start visiting more often though now that there's a Photography Forum!

I thought you maybe interested in my daughters work using the Canon 450D.
She does'nt do any video work but is really doing some excellent pics
