    Fun! I love the chrome effect on the tops of the bubbles. This could make a great wallpaper.

    Thanks peeps!
    donkeyslayer said he could see my head in one of the bubbles. I think he's looking at his desk lamp too much though.

    Tonight's crazy experiment involved some bad halogen bulbs from out film scanner at work. And for Mateem I actually used something chrome tonight.

    If you look at the times six image you'll notice that I am taking the photo without a shirt on. I don't know why I felt the need to let you know that.

    Phil,

    How do you get that saturated colour look to your photos?
    When I take photographs, I get nothing of the sort.

    I've noticed it on alot of your photos, and I love it!

    Fozzybar - I will put warnings from here on out!

    krispee - Thanks!

    Spook - See below.

    7. Saturation.
    I get a lot of questions about "the look" of my photographs. Saturation is one of many things that digital helped me explore a bit more. I pretty much use photoshop on every image to alter the overall look. Some cameras offer a in-camera setting that allows more or less saturation. I shoot on zero, but know many peeps who shoot at +2 saturation. In reality it depends on the final photograph.
    Look at this image below. Not something I'd normally post, but what the heck.
    Phil's Photos - Devil Girl and More! -- 02.10.06
    Look at the left column first. Once I found where I wanted the black levels to be I moved on to saturation. I really like the stairs with the saturation left untouched, but just to see what happens to the colors, let's take them out. So now the stairs have a nice tonal range, but the photo isn't too interesting without the color. Adding in 100% saturation back into the photo seems to make it look from another planet. I'd probably composite the stairs from the 100% satured look and the bg from the as shot one for a final image.

    If you look at the right column you'll see a rather dull looking b/w photo. Adding +40% saturation makes it better, but I wonder what would happen if I pushed the red saturation more then the other colors. You'd get that bottom one. Not really a great photograph, but hopefully it gets the point across.

    Two side notes.
    a. I compose for the strongest composition. I used to take tons of photos at different angles looking for the strongest silhouette or most interesting shapes. I shoot a lot less now, but I <b>look</b> a lot more.
    b. Saturation is a tricky mistress. Oversaturated paintings are normally the sign of an amature. I tend to stay away from a too saturated look because of this. If I somehow feel the color is the most interesting thing about a composition, then I tend to beef up the colors a bit.

    Hope this helps. Now for some pretty pictures.

    8. Emily Combo.

    These are from a shoot I did last week. Still working on the photos. It was a 9hour shoot!

    Thanks for clearing that up Phil...but it still seems kinda hard to know how to "LOOK" for those right moments. Anyways, I thank ya for the info.

    btw, can you post larger pics of the Emily combo? I dont know if you can or not, but I thought Id ask.

    a few questions:
    -Where does your work get published?
    -Is there any mags or websites you can suggest to look at for great photography?
    -How long do you usually spend on "adjusting" a picture?
    -How long have you been a photographer for?
    -Did you go to any formal education?

    Thx in advance
