tony field's recent activity

  • This is an interesting rendition and certainly moves the image into a different visual impression - more sparkle. I might consider this direction when I re-edit for a print.  Lately I have been in ...
  • I certainly have no issues with this :)  It is delightful that you wish to provide "visual commentary" on images.  As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.  There are two reasons IMHO to ...
  • George Hurrell is not a film noir photographer.  His work was Hollywood Glamour portraits of men and women and defined a lighting and representation character for his subjects. That is why I said ...
  • I did not try to "mimic" anything. The picture stands by it self (thanks for the positive comment) The "film noir" simply served as an inspiration for some elements of the lighting style and ...
  • Absolutely true.  My interpretation was based on my inference of the intention of the quote (which is, of course "out of context" from a possible document).  It is one of the more reasonable ...
  • I think this is a reasonably decent generalized description of exposure and how it relates to image capture by a film or digital camera.  Depending on your intent of discussion precision and ...
  • Most delightful - in the interests of honesty and clarity, please answer the questions I posed.  Please describe why you think my parallel between rain and photon exposure is inappropriate. Also ...
  • Please explain why, when I take an exposure of f /8 at 1/250 second (at, say ISO 100) with a medium format Hasselblad and with a 1" sensor Nikon P&S, the images are (other than absolute detail) are ...
  • Out of curiosity Steven (in the case of being much more, accurate, concise and easy to understand), please explain this: Assume we are sitting in a nice west coast town on a day with a lovely ...
  • Good point !!!  Thanks.   I did that, and indeed better. You are right ... My in-camera cropping error ...
  • Why would you think that? Some folks who are not photographers take DPR too seriously.
  • This is a good rendition ... Maybe the chest brightness is a bit hot for my taste.  The increase in dress "clarity" is nicely done ...  a bit brisk side ??
  • Thank you.  It was a bit of work to take a very edgy contemporary model and translate her into this style :)
  • George Hurrell is the master of Hollywood portrait style ... he basically "invented" the lighting technique. They are never frowned upon when well done. I guess it is simply a matter of "current ...
  • Created discussion thread Sort of Film Noir Retro
    I did this series in early November but truly forgot to process them. Jennifer, the model just asked for a few images a couple of days ago. I was embarrassed with this. Jennifer just posted the ...
  • I do have to force myself to take photos.  As recently as last week, I was forced to take come pictures of a lovely naked lady with all sorts of interesting props.  It was hard work but my friend ...
  • Sadly, Gollywop is exactly correct in his assessment. GB is unbelievably patient with his dialogues. I think I have to join the gollywop camp and sadly leave GB's patience in the dust.
  • I did not know that a "definition" is a matter "liking it or not". It is a matter the precision of words. In other words, you change your interpretation situationally for what ever purposes you ...
  • I take your word for that.  What MBP presented is, in that case, a misrepresentation of the book.  I do not have a copy.  It is frustrating to base a discussion on an out-of-context set of words.  ...
  • MUCH nicer presentation ... with "lovely lady" consistent feeling. However, there are a number of other shots of her (not nudish) that deserve another gallery with a different intent.
