    Managed a portrait tonight - just a quick edit but needs more time and work; grateful for any ideas for this and future work. :)

    Brilliant DR in here, Fraser, but the hand and
    the glass do not contribute in any way… IMO!

    The first reveals the gentle personality and character
    of the breed… and is technically better too, Fraser! (y)

    After falling in love with my new (to me) Nikon F3 and film, I dug out the digital camera and had a go at shooting a Product a few days ago (taken using a old manual focus Nikkor 105 f2.5 AiS lens that I absolutely love!):

    (P.S. Still think the Digital Nikon D4 is great as well - can't bring myself to sell it and go completely 'old school')

    Good gear is cool but it's all in the way you use it
    …and I think you did it the right way here!

    Try using a 1 or 2" strip of white paper camera left at about 60~70°!

    A good friend has started a business for Dog Boarding (She looks after other peoples dogs at her home whilst they go on holiday). She asked me if I could photograph the 'well behaved' dogs so she can turn them into 'Thank You' cards this will hopefully get the repeat business from the owners.

    Here is One year old Freddie:

    I'm with TG on this. These kind of threads made me to sign up a few days ago to this excellent forum, so as a beginner I can learn a lot.
    Gentlemen, keep'em coming!

    Thank you for the interest in this thread - I hope over time people will be able to see a development in my shots and also show that a small home studio is of some use :)

    Another dog portrait in the studio. I find lighting a black dog quite difficult at the moment :-(

    This was taken with a softbox directly overhead (1/2 power) with another softbox at 45 deg. to camera left (1/8 power) then a grided light high and behind the subject at camera right. (1/4 power)

    Feedback appreciated :)

    Light ratios are pretty cool but the rim that is too hot
    to my taste, Fraser.!

    This is a brilliant thread :) I've also been inspired to try some studio shots by Gavin Hoey's YouTube videos so it's great to see how someone else has been walking that path ahead of me. Keep the shots coming Fraser.

    Shot taken for the June 2018 Film Photographer of the year competition (Subject entitled Airborne)

    [​IMG]Airborne by Fraser White, on Flickr

    Rolleiflex 6003 Professional, Rollei 80mm f2.8 Planar, Kodak Porta 160 film. (Home developed & scanned)

    The Log book in the picture is my late fathers WW2 navigators log book

    (please note original was removed - never edit pictures in a dark room when your monitor is calibrated to have the light on; the image becomes very dark when viewed in daylight!!)

    Thanks Kodiak - again awesome feedback :)

    Hi Fraser. interesting objects collection and colour scheme in this.

    I notice though that this work does not reflect the previous quality
    featured in other shots. Here, IMO, all the problems I see could've
    been taken care off prior to SR. Sorry, buddy, but this is a few steps
    back compared to other successful efforts… just me. :cool:

    First go at Macro photography today using a film camera; not being able to see the results instantly made it interesting!

    Captured as the match starts to ignite:

    I love images like this and I find this an excellent example.

    As soon as I’m a bit better I’m planning on some shots like this. I’ve ordered some matches with coloured heads and I have also got some black matchsticks with different coloured heads too.
