    wow food for thought.. thanks man..

    yea thats true. less on medium and more on image..
    i did the art thing in sf academy of art.

    i learned a lot though.. but painting and illustration isnt me.. but i still do once in a while.

    what kinda editing u used in p04? hue and burn tool?

For the Aluminum Man and Dragon Boy photo I sketched out a thumbnail about a month ago before I took any of the photographs.

    Quote me on this.

    Think less about the medium and more about the image.

    awesome shots once again. your illustrative/portrait shots are always solid

    multiple exposures you say? so is it a composite of images then? it sounds pretty intriguing

    ukanfoff - Even though it's not for you, you're still pretty good! I never burn. p04 is a combination of color correction, multiple exposures, and some layer masks. That's the basic idea.

    injection223 - Thanks! Look up "high dynamic range imaging" on google. That will start you on a long journey.

    claudeEGYPT - I'll put some high res shots up soon for ya.

    I hope everybody had a good Thanksgiving. Last Thanksgiving I went on an overnight hike/shoot. I shot the sunset at one location and the sunrise miles away. (And then had to walk back -> doh!) This and this were from that. Last year there was nice weather and the hike was illuminated by the full moon. Plus it was territory I grew up in and was extremely comfortable with.

    This year's Thanksgiving was a very different experience. 20 to 30 degrees fahrenheit in thick fog and terrian that I was not familiar with. I even came across an emu while shooting these. There were several locations. Scorched earth, frosted soil that cracked under your feet, and ancient oaks.

    These will be my last nature landscapes in 2006.

    Well first of all awesome landscapes. "Somber Exequies" would be my favorite of the bunch.

    Hah I feel silly now, I've heard of HDR imaging and have messed with it in the past, just reading it actualy written out threw me off.

    Just one more question in regards to the HDR imaging, is that a usual method for you? I can see traces of it in a lot of your landscape work, based on the lighting in quite a few shots.

    By the way, thank you for the help

    eazym - Thank you sir. I do indeed work everyday at improving.

    Sniper - Thanks!

    injection223 - Thanks! As for a normal HDRI pipeline. I would say no. In fact the majority of my landscapes don't use that technique. Every image provides new challenges. Some present themselves during capture, some during post. It's really up to you on how to handle them and what you want the final image to look like.

    I hope everybody survived new years. I know mine was a loooooong night.

    In case you missed INSOMANIA I made mini site with all of the photos from the event here.

    In other Phil news. I'm currently getting prints made for a solo gallery show in Pasadena for February. More details to come, but if you are in LA or will be, please do come by. It's exciting for me because most of you know my work from web sized images, but I actually shoot to print big (so American) and there's so much you really don't see in a lot of my photographs due to that.

    Also if you haven't visited my website lately (phfx.com) I uploaded the last song I made in 2006. It's a little piano piece called "IX". Much more traditional than my normal work.

    Happy New Year to all!

    Phil

    I have so much to post.

    Lets start with a photoshoot I did for designer Pinar Eris.

    I've also made a little mini site where you can see some outtakes and unused shots...

    As well as a high resolution behind the scenes.
    Here's a youTube low res if you hate loading or quicktime.

    High res...

    I'd like to thank the models, muas (especially Jen), and Jay.

    Here's Toby in a sheet much later that night after the shoot.

    Some of you may remember a horror movie I did still photography for called Devil Girl. Howie finished the cut and finally screened the film. Congrats Howie! Here's a little mini site with many more of the shots I took.

    Wow, you have some amazing stuff! I'm pretty new here, so this is the first time I've run accross your thread, but I was blown away from beginning to end.

    Favorites: p07, p23, p28 (awesome tones), all the burlesque shots are great, but the first two and last ones take the cake for me, wonderful light in nov02, von01 is a lot of fun (and I keep noticing more and more to love when I look back at it), the color and feel in von06 is perfect, Gray Colossus is impactful (the little yucca sprout on the right makes it ), the last photo of 2006 is probably my favorite overall (it would be between that one and nov02, actually), and your most recent designer shoot is beautiful in color, comp, & concept (plus the added illustrations work well without taking away from the shot or the clothes).

    Amazing, inspirational stuff! Thanks much for sharing, and if you need me, I'll be busy digging through your site for a good hour or three .
