Beverage – Beer Bottle Photography

Bottle of Stella Artios photographed with a Canon 5D MarkIII and a Canon 24 – 70mm 2.8L. I also used a single Paul C. Buff Einstein with a small strip box attached. The light was moved around the bottle and shots where taken on both the right and left side as well as directly behind the bottle. These images where taken into Photoshop and combined and cleaned up to produce the image you see here.

This is another Photoshop composite image made up of the front bottle 2 images,  one of the back light, one with the lid and label lit properly. Then this front bottle image was added to the image of the background bottles. The background image was blurred a bit and a warm tone radial gradient was added to give it some ambiance and finally a vignette was added to finish it off.

This image is a multiple image composite made up of the bottle, then the chrome lid and finally the background. The background was made by using a “lightsword” attached to a small LED flashlight with a blue filter to add the color. The individual components where taken into Photoshop and composited and retouch to clean up any blemishes.

Family Group Portraiture – Commercial Photographer, Jamestown, Chautauqua County New York

9 08 2015

I’m not a portrait photographer usually. Usually I spend my time creating images of inanimate objects, Architecture, products and landscapes. A close friend asked me to come up with something special when his kids gathered for fathers day this year. I made an image of each family group separately while standing in the yard of their cottage. Once I had an image of each group I removed the background so that just the people where left. Once that was done I could move the groupings on to any background I would like too. This is what I ended up doing.

Dripping Lipstick – Product Photography in Western New York, Chautauqua County

4 08 2015

Product Photography – Western New York, Chautauqua County

Building the product image of Dripping Lipstick involved producing multiple images in the studio. One of the upside down lipstick, one of the standing lipstick case, another of a drip of nail polish, and then the one of the nail polish dripping down the lipstick case and puddling on the table. There was also a large amount of Photoshop done to clean up the elements and change the colors of all the elements to match.

A composite put together in Photoshop of spring water pouring into a glass on white. High speed flash used to stop the motion of the water and capture it as a split second rather than a soft flowing bit of water. Area left in the scene to drop marketing type.

Perfume bottle and creative use of smoke

A studio image of a small decorated perfume bottle done as a single exposure and then a seprate exposures of the smoke where taken and added to the perfume bottle. The humming bird was created in Photoshop by taking images of smoke and shaping them into the humming bird shape. Photoshop was also used to retouch the bottle to get rid of imperfections and dust and to create the reflection.

A single exposure using action stopping short flash duration to freeze the motion of the make up powder exploding off the lower brush. With the black background you can easily extend it to make room for marketing text and contact information.

This image was produced in the studio with a single speedlight (on camera type flash) shot thru a double layer of tracing paper that was placed behind the subject and then light was bounced around with a couple silver cards to fill in the front of the products as well as some photoshop retouching to clean up the product.

Scenic Photography in Chautauqua County N.Y.

Barcelona Harbor and lighthouse in Westfield N.Y., Chautauqua County along Lake Erie.

This image was captured on July 3, 2014. The Canon 5D markIII with the 24-70mm 2.8L was setup on a really right stuff nodal slide so that the camera pivoted around the nodal point of the lens, which allows the exposures to line up better when they are stitched together in photoshop. This images is make up of 21 exposures. That’s 3 exposures at each of 7 camera positions. The 3 exposures where taken into efexpro HDR soft for the High dynamic Range processing. After each of the set of 3 exposures are processed the resulting 7 files are taken into photoshop so that the stitching could be preformed. Once photoshop does it’s thing the resulting pano is fine tuned in both photoshop and lightroom.

It’s getting to be the end of Cherry season here in Chautauqua County New York. I figured I would preserve the harvest is my way, with a photograph rather than canning or freezing. The taste isn’t as fresh but they should last longer.

This was produced with a single Medium Softbox (24×36″) coming in from the rear left side of the image, a black card in front of the softbox to knock down the light spill on the table and bowl, a white foamcore fill card in the front right. The image was finished in Lightroom and Onone Photoshop plugins.





New Photoshop Technique – Photos from Westfield N.Y. and Chautauqua Institution

10 03 2012

Have been working on a new technique in photoshop to blend a photo with a couple of other layers to give the image a painterly,drawing with a bit of the photo showing through it all.

The photograph was duped in PS5 and that dupe was changed into a black and white and then duped again and some filter effects added to give it a drawing look and then blended and combined on top of the photograph layer.  Then the background texture layer was brought in and moved to the bottom of the stack.  A multiply layer blend was added to the top layer and a black adjustment mask was added to the original photo layer to allow the selected blending of the whole group.
