Multiplying Models II


This is a follow up post to the previous Multiplying Models tutorial done over a year back. In a recent E-session, I used this technique to multiply the girl, who is a dancer around the guy, who happens to be a part time bassist in a band. Also we discuss the importance of a tripod and boom stand and toning the image.

Case Study: Pre-Production in Photography


In this digital era, with new photographers coming in and having more experience with computers than camera and lights, there is usually more attention placed on the post production segment of a shoot than the pre-production preparation for the photo shoot.While the post production part is very important, if a lot of what can be done for the shoot is realized in pre-production, the outcome of the product will not only look and feel more convincing, but will require less time spent in the digital darkroom. Inside, there is an example of a recent photoshoot of Patrick Demarchelier for Longchamp, illustrating the importance of the pre-production process, and also how to incorporate the stage of pre-production in other genres of photography.
