An aspect of my job that I love is we get to meet all sorts of people from all sorts of places – Copenhagen, Singapore, USA, Ireland,… you name it. It’s called the OS FACTOR! That’s one great positive about a global corporation. These last couple of weeks we’ve had a couple more. John from Boston and Chong from New Jersey. So before they left the obligatory staff pics had to be taken. You never know their families might even like them too.

Second pic was pushed strongly down the contrasty tone line with some presets I picked up for my Lightroom program – in fact all these pics are now being processed done almost entirely in Adobe Lightroom. Now that’s a program that is really worth getting – especially if you use the raw facilities of digital cameras. I haven’t had that one long but given another month I reckon my workflow will really be humming. Results look great.

Anyway back to second pic. Once I got it into photoshop I put it through some watercolour. Well it came out a little bit different than I had planned. Nonetheless I still like it. Love the way the brick background ended up too.

Couple of great pics of Abdu taken the other day.

Lighting was strong late afternoon coming in through a 1.5 metre gap between two buildings and hitting the corrugated iron wall-paneling on a sharp angle. Didn’t have reflectors with me so I used a plastic lid with a bit of A3 size white paper to push some light into the near side of his face. End result is below. You really don’t need much more than some observant eyes to read the source of illumination and a bit of thinking when placing your subject in the best position to get what you want.

Second pic has a touch of watercolour to the background.

Still More Staff Pics

Another example of this – it’s so subjective.  While we are trying to get away from formal pics, sometimes you get someone who is so full of life that a formal one is,… well,… different. Gotta take more of Sarah yet.

Today’s Special is ……. Some new music by Leslie Feist to listen to while you check out the photos. Track number two [ My Moon My Man ]is definitely my favourite. Be a great song to put a photoshow to.

Some more photo’s of course – from Friday. Just 2 for now. Of course had to put up another of the very animated Sarah.


And of course singing the blues is…..

Sarah Singing the Blue’s
