Photographing your work

Hi Peter, after using the Havox box for more than a year now, I have to say, I'm still satisfied with it. The only upgrade I should have made is the purchase of two extra light panels, which was not available by the time I bought the box and now the big A is not sending the extra panels to my tiny island.

Cheers Rob

Thank you for the info and advice, as I will be checking in to it for sure.

I buy almost all my online gear from B&H - give then a shout and hopefully they will be able to ship to your tiny island.

If any of you guys are knowledgeable, then feel free to populate this topic with your own information and setup, including photos ;)

Well I currently have a Panasonic Lumix camera which I find OK. I am not yet fully au fait with camera technology to know which type of camera and associated len would aid my photography ??

I do believe in getting outside, in good natural daylight to photograph the builds I manage and here is MY set up and a couple of photos  . . .

Hi David, like your car top set up a lot and the results are good too. The Lanc is looking great with that light of the setting sun, very natural and the shadows look convincing. The second has a bit too much foreground for my liking and the colours are fading a little to the gray side. It has it's atmosphere, but a little more colour saturation wood enhance the picture, maybe with the help of some spot metering.

I as a nearly livelong available light and landscape photographer found it really hard to adopt to modelling photography. I still haven't mastered to get good photos and because of that I'm toying with the thought to start a thread for those of you who want to enhance your photo skills with the critique of the fellow LSM crowd. It should not be about the quality of the model, but the image. But I have to think about the concept a little further.

I use a Lumix as well, combined with lots of different lenses, but my main piece of glass is a 90 mm (45mm in Micro 4/3) macro lens, because you get pretty (ugly in times) close and the focal angle is almost distortion free.

Cheers Rob
