    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!
    Nadim - Hey there! Why'd you change the name though?
    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.
    Phil's Photos - Devil Girl and More! -- 02.10.06
    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

    heya phil,

    awesome shots!
    I got a few comments though...

    I don't know why, but in http://www.artbyphil.com/temp/kp1.jpg the plant or tree behind her disturbs me. It makes the shot look too busy or something. I think it would've been a lot better without it. maybe the same goes for the lamp. I would love to see this photo with a total dark background, it would come out pretty strong I think...

    http://www.artbyphil.com/temp/kp7.jpg I miss the top of her head in this one... Nice pose and look on her face though.

    I agree on shot 6 being the best...

    http://www.artbyphil.com/temp/em4.jpg, in this shot the plant/tree doesn't bug me at all... the girl looks messy and the plant adds to that.

    Furthermore, awesome shoot!

    Thanks *NL* for the crits.

    In the final image for the "teacher/secretary" setup I painted out the pot. There were some others with a silk cloth covering the majority of the pot as well. I did two two versions without the tree as well. It wasn't too hard to accomplish that. I'll see if I can dig them up when I get home.

    Thanks again.

    Phil

    Here's a photo composite I was hired to create for projection.
    Click on this thingy
    Or if you'd like to see it with some moody tunes go to my website. It's on the front page.

    Also somebody over on dpreview liked my custom lens and filter experiments. Here's some of that stuff.

    I really enjoy how your able to set a mood in each image. I also think the way you approach your subject matter is very original and unique to your style. The way you see women is hot.
