Im all for film look or analog looks but recently looks like everyone is doing it. I do it on all my phone instagram pics(i blame vsco) =D. But most photos I shoot on dSlR seldom, too much effort LOL.

What do you guys think about this trend?

Aiya bro, if its that simple we would all be pro pre- wedding photographers already  laugh.gif  laugh.gif

well it probably is that easy ... but then again i could never achieve effects like those by VSCO. Just wanting to see what you guys feel about it.

But personally I like digital photos not trying to be analog. Unless Im shooting the FE2 then, I like analog pics.

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 ?

Hentam hentam liao can improve laugh.gif
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.

For me I think between flash vs continuous light vs light painting each has its on pros & cons. In theory in my head continuous light is best as you can see the reflections and shadows as you adjust your product placement.

Flash itself is tricky and very time consuming to setup. Things like bard doors, snoot even ND filters all need to be available to shape the light.

lightpainting is good but location and post is abit daunting for me.

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
*
well just take note and do better. we are all always learning and improving. as long as dont give up, should be no issue

Few years back when I was in the mood of photography. I took nearly 40 mins to setup a lighting for one shot using 5 speedlite used 3 nikon and 2 canons https://flic.kr/p/nyq5RK. as long as we are satisfied. end of the day its how close you can get the image to the image in your head, should be golden

Our 2nd try at shooting a car, this time back in Agacia, Kampar  rclxms.gif
Shots taken with the help of DS_Legacy

user posted imagePhotowalk V9- Rolling Shot by My Story Production, on Flickr

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

Good try. what was the speed you guys were going at? Looks like can squeeze longer shutter + increase speed slightly for more blur and more fun. But stay safe la, try on abandon roads

Thanks man, much appreciated notworthy.gif
Yeah we were looking for wider roads with less traffic/people but unfortunately there were none in the area- small town sweat.gif
The shot above was taken at 1/40 on a very short stretch of road laugh.gif had to literally "pedal to the metal" to get up to speed (40km/h) on time  laugh.gif
Luckily we were there early and not that much cars coming in and out. Hope to be able to take some highway shots next time, would be much easier, and the effects better  rclxm9.gif

Dont go highway too dangerous to slow down. safety 1st. try search industrial areas. Normally the roads wider and not so heavy traffic. I know you want more speed for more "motion", but at higher speed you will have more wind and more vibrations no matter how smooth the road is.

Remember safety 1st.

ideally using rigs would be better.

IMHO, u don't need the most expensive lens to get great pictures.

How much bokeh u really need? Do u need the best 85mm lens?

but its good to have. if you have funding why not? else, the next best is ok la...

All my lens are D lens.

If earning from photography then can consider la.

With the cost of f1.4g, I can buy 2 lenses already.

well hobbyist spend more I think. they want the creamiest bokeys. pro photogs lean towards bang for the buck.

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
