2nd photo there lighting sphere ball is what?
*
Done with 15 LED lights. DIY and connect them with a wire powered by two AA batteries. Really hard to get a proper light sphere. Need some practice. laugh.gif

Took us almost an hour to get a few proper light balls. sweat.gif

But keep track of a lot of VR "goodies" hor, if you know what I mean brows.gif brows.gif
The light spheres are basically done by using a wire connected to LED lights, and then spun while taking a long exposure shot.
The hardest part about producing light spheres is the spinning part, it is very very difficult to get a truly rounded sphere haha.. have to ask DS_Legacy for tips, since he was the one spinning the light spheres for the shot XD

Next time you spin la icon_idea.gif

A recent shot taken with DS_Legacy for a company laugh.gif
Went through a lot of problems to create the shot since we don't really have much. Luckily the client was happy with the results laugh.gif

The La Rience watches were water resistant and that's why the "water" effect

Still can improve a lot. But too bad we are limited by gears laugh.gif

can elaborate ? which gears were limiting and which ones would assist in creating the best img ?
*
Lack of studio level gears. laugh.gif

The background of the image can be better.

We were using continuous lights in taking the shot. If got more flashes and stands, we would have a slightly higher quality image. Since we were shooting at ISO 300 with continuous lights. laugh.gif

And we need larger softboxes for better light diffusion. Notice the reflections on the watches, can be improvised one. biggrin.gif

But ayam still amateur la. Still learning with master PF T.J.

Wish I could shoot like them one day.
I noticed some of their shots have the couple framed in only a very small part of the final photo. The photo sort of "missing-the-point" but end up pretty refreshing since no one does that laugh.gif
Amazing!

Of course, their other photos are pretty good also... see liao will emo  cry.gif
Actually I think the only gear we lack of was a better studio diffuser (the shot was taken with an umbrella) laugh.gif We also lack a video slider for the video part of the project but that's another story laugh.gif
Maybe a telephoto lens would allow us to crop less but its not really necessary I suppose
I think the shot will be better if we have a better venue/materials to work laugh.gif The room was very cramp and hot! haha
The "ground" was supposed to be polished tile but ended up we could only afford plastic placed on a piece of black cloth.. The water droplets weren't very "cooperative" either haha
Hopefully we will do better next time. For most product/macro shoot, the most important component is still light diffusion imho
*
Wahhhh sifu level comment. notworthy.gif

Let's shoot again next time. biggrin.gif

The water droplets pattern macam not really natural. Haha maybe next time have to take note liao.

I remembered my last visit to KL birdpark, I had a wonderful experience. I love how many the birds are allowed to roam freely.
I've promised to re-visit the place again when I have a telephoto lens haha, really looking forward to it!

Wahhh why sell off? Jumpship or quit? sad.gif

Refer to KLDSLR price then maybe lower the price by around 10% to sell it off easily? biggrin.gif

Post it in Mudah and Garage sales. You can easily find buyer there. laugh.gif

shoot where?
drool.gif

just one thing tho.. i noticed focus point is somewhere on the cheek/neck..
its understandable since we like trained to find high contrast are to lock focus? biggrin.gif
but i recently read anyhow portrait must focus on the eye. profile - eye, sides - near eye.
esp with very shallow dof.. to me its vr hard to do sweat.gif

Shallow DoF? You buy the 105mm F1.4? hmm.gif hmm.gif

Anyway I just joined the dark side today ^^ D750 but didn't manage to get a lens as no stock the 50 f1.4D

By the way how many of you use back button focus when taking photos?

Welcome to the dark side! brows.gif

I do use back button focus occasionally biggrin.gif

me, using 58mm 1.4 + 70-200vr2, but best bang for the buck is 85mm 1.8 imho...

58 1.4 is a beast but pricey sad.gif

Have to agree with OOtaii thumbup.gif

Get the F1.8 one instead. It's not easy to focus with F1.4 all the time imho. 1.8 one has more value over your money too. I dont think the 1.4 (triple the price) worth it as much as the 1.8 one. biggrin.gif

Read reviews but it says 1.8G has slower focus. Is it true?

Personally I haven't tried the 85mm F1.4. Not so sure about that but most review says that the AF is tolerable. Usually people only use 85mm for portraits. It should be good enough. biggrin.gif

Shots taken with the help of DS_Legacy

The rolling shot proved to be most challenging since the road is very short and "laden" with an abundance of cow dung! Not only do we have to keep both cars straight and within the same distance, we had to make sure to dodge all the cow poop too!  rclxub.gif

The BMW shoot was again not up to our expectations as we couldn't find any road that is long and wide enough, especially when shooting at a place strange to us... have to make do  cry.gif
We've also noticed that glossy paint seems to reflect light differently and normal strobes may not work properly.

Apparently the car carrying the photographer has to be chosen wisely as well as some cars have very very narrow windows, can't even lean my body out laugh.gif

Hopefully things will be better in the upcoming shoot  rclxms.gif

Should've asked Oscar (putochip123) to wear brighter-coloured clothes (at least the shirt/pants). We always forget to add in the reflector at the bottom of the strobe light . If we had more time, a 2nd light coming from the right would be nice as well hmm.gif. That way the shadows cast on the car by the model can be minimized; and I think overall the shot will look less like Oscar is being "photoshopped" into the photo laugh.gif

Let's do better in the next shoot laugh.gif
