Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Lighting II (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S7000
Location: Work, Glasgow
Date: May 21, 2005
Aperture: f8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/2
Galleries: Interior, Emotive
Date Uploaded: May 21, 2005

Stage set at my place of work.
Multiple light sources. The main one being a 5000 watt fresnel behind the set. A haze machine was used to pick out the beams. The person in the doorway is ME. put the camera on 10 sec timer, ran fast towards the stage, scrambled up, just to hear the shutter release. Didn't have any more timer than 10 secs. Decided to put the camera on 5 shot burst, set the timer, pressed the button, rn to the stage, climbed up, stood in the doorway and this was shot number 4. If there was a shot 6,7,8,9 or 10. you would see me lying on the stage totally out of breath. Had about 7 or 8 attempts. Pleased with the results. Don't know how my fellow DPCers will feel about it.

That's a great shot. I really like the light beams. Great story, too - nice to know other people sometimes have to work at their shots. :)

Sometimes I wish I had a Stage to play with like that. Great lighting, and nice set. My lighting idea would have been no match for this one.

A striking Image ! Well Done !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2005 05:10:58 AM
Well done - not much wrong with this other than it's beaten by some digital art.

Edit: don't go too heavy with Neat Image though, you're starting to lose texture & detail.

Congratulations on your first ribbon....more to follow I'm sure!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2005 03:07:20 AM
I'm really glad you ribboned! It is well deserved. If for nothing else, I kept coming back to this shot because of its uniqueness and its obvious "fit" with the challenge topic. I know I only gave it a 9, but I feel like I was pulling for the underdog in the Kentucky Derby! I certainly believe it was worth the ribbon & I'm glad you got it! Congrats...

This image captured my fancy at once and I expected to ribbon. Congratulations on your Yellow! I am sure this image will be etched in the minds of many.

05/30/2005 12:10:27 AM
This is a great example of being creative not only with the lighting but in addressing the "how" to accomplish something when you're both model and photographer -- congrats on your ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2005 12:07:08 AM
Fantastic use of light. Congratulations.

This is my favorite shot in the challenge. In fact, I've stayed up late tonight to make sure you won a ribbon! I've come back to it several times this week, and each time I'm even more impressed. The slouch is perfect, the lighting is perfect, and so is everything else. Good work, and congratulations on a wonderful image.

The ultimate in studio lighting!! Nice touch to place the model in this shot. The band of darkness running behind his feet is not helpful, however. Great light representation throughout. 8.

My Challenge favorite.

I really liked everything about this except for the pose. You should finish quite well, good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2005 05:50:28 PM
Definitely interesting and on topic. I think I would like it better without the person in the door. Good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2005 11:47:35 PM
Cool shot! I love all the rays of light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2005 09:25:50 PM
This shot is, DRAMA. The lighting that you were able to catch, with the sihlouette is just awesome. I really like that you resisited cropping out the top stage lights. Good choice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2005 09:11:33 PM
LOVE this! Great job. The model & the old jukebox add a lot of character too. The only thing holding it back from a 10 IMHO is that there is so much light it washes out the overall effectiveness of all the different light beams a little. I still really like this one a lot though... (9)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2005 01:01:54 AM
No one can argue that lighting is a key element of this photo. Nice to have a theater to shoot in. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2005 11:48:57 PM
Very interesting. I wish I couldn't see the stage lights at the top of the photo as it detracts from the intrigue for me. Also, the guy hurts the shot a little bit for me. I prefer to concentrate on the interesting shapes of the structure itself. The guy's pose seems too forced.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2005 07:15:20 PM
Very dramatic use of light and shadow! I like the person placed in the doorway and the jukebox on left. Original and interesting...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2005 07:05:08 PM
This is, simply put, really really cool. Perfect way to use lighting as the true subject. Crop is perfect. Well deserved 10

you couldnt have met the challenge any better great job...

05/26/2005 11:46:37 AM
I wish I had a few Source Fours, and Par Cans in my inventory. Nice job, and ignore those that tell you that this should of been in the sillouettes challenge.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2005 03:21:52 PM
Way cool! Fits the theme to a T. And it has a great quality of mystery. What is it? Who is he? Where are we? What's the juke box doing there? And so on.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
