Shots at the Independence Monument

23 04 2010

These were taken awhile ago but thought they were worthy of putting online. These were tester shots for an upcoming that were taken at the Independence Monument at sunset.
Rick Valenzuela and Maria Jarina were kind enough to come along and be my models.

Tilt/shift lens hack

10 02 2010

This is something I have done in the past but wanted to refine the design a bit.
Essentially, I took an old Medium Format lens and turned it onto a tilt/shift lens.
One of the great uses for this lens is to make everything look like a model. There are photoshop techniques out there that recreate this but its always better to do it outside of the computer anyways.
Lets leave that photoshop stuff to graphic designers….
And remember kids, always be wary of a photographer that say “I’ll fix it in photoshop” more than once a day.
No photoshop other than curves adjustment was made to these photos.
