    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07

    Well as some of you noticed it's been a long time. A very long time. I apologize for that and I promise I'll be more active here in the future with crits, posts, etc. I live a busy lifestyle (who doesn't) with a full time career in film, a freelance artist, photographer, and director, and I think I still have a somewhat healthy social life

    I'm starting a new thread with some of my work from the last few months. I'll keep it brief and just say that I haven't done very much freelance work this year (compared to last year). I decided on creating photographs for the reasons I wanted and working on projects that seemed interesting to me. It's been rewarding and challenging. I'm working to improve everyday much like my painting.

    I have couple little tutorials and things I'll put up soon too.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p01 - Ice and Fire - This is an experimental abstract piece that I'm currently trying to get put up at the Getty.
    Click here for the whole gallery.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p02 - Out of Black - I started a series of landscapes that emit a similar mood. This was my first successful attempt in my mind.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p03 - Cant - I experimented a bit more and this photograph.....

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p04 - Ingression - and this photograph pretty much show exactly what I'm going for.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p05 - Feather

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p06 - Lamp Shade

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p07 - Jagoda

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p08 - Alley Cat - Taken in Canada.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p09 - Blue Fox Drive-In - I just sold a 120 inch of this print and I love seeing prints that large. There really aren't many drive-ins left and seeing a single screen one is a pretty bizarre thing. The movies playing were X-Men 3 and Posieden and you can read that on the big print as well as the snack bar in the back there.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p10 - Whidbey Lagoon

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p11 - Whidbey Ebb Tide

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p12 - The Getty Villa - The Getty Villa re-opened this year. There's more photos on my site from there.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p13 - Stephanie

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p14 - Olivia Accordian - No flamingos were harmed. Honest.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p15 - Bellybutton Thief

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p16 - Amber

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p17 - Dream Weavers - The title card says it all, but I was really interested in creating a conceptual abstract piece and producing this photographically. This would have been easy to paint honestly, but I wanted to make this real.

    p24 - Harbinger

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07
    p25 - Big Boy Spike - I made this dude when I was 5 and never really photographed him. When people come to my place I always get asked about him. Basically I used to go to Bob's on Friday nights, which was hot rod night. They sold these banks. One night we went there after I saw Gremlins and bought this giant Spike doll. But his was rubber and his body was rigid plastic and sort of sucked. So I basically ripped off their heads and created this mutant that now guards my home.

    Phil's Photos - New photos and new gear - 12.18.07

    There's a great deal more on my site. phfx.com

    And a wee bit of a life update for those who know me. I'm still with Rhythm and Hues (7+ years!). We are finishing up on Night at the Museum right right now, we are knee deep in Evan Almighty and preproduction has started on The Golden Compass. It's going to be an exciting year here and it's really been a fun one for me so far.

    After so long all I can say is hello again. It's good to be back.

    Phil

    It's great to have you back!

    Not much to say, i'm quite speechless. Most of these i know from phfx.com and eatpoo.com. What I, for one want to see is really new stuff.

    Really digging the mood landscapes. Are they shot in hdr? The toning is quite rich for rgb.

    Cheers!

    That about sums it up. You have the most incredible composition and colour balance, it shows me a lot about where I need to improve my skills. Thankyou for posting these, I am sure to return!

    wow! I really really like your photos, they all have some kind of special feel/mood. How do you do you accomplish that? Is it due to your camera/lens, or do you do it in photoshop? I bet especially pic. 02-04 didn't look like that from the camera

    I have watched the old photos that you have posted here some time ago, like a zillion times You are somehow able to make even a simple picture of someone's face stand out extremely much!

    I you have the time, I would appreciate any tips of how to make my photos seem just a little more professional. They all seem a little dull like anyone could have shot them with any camera...

    My camera is a Canon 350D with the standard 18-55mm lens - should I use flash for my portraits, and should I shoot in the RAW-format?

    Thank you in advance

    It's all awesome. My favourites have to be Ingression and the abstract movie, the rotating smoke in slomo was pretty awesome. Hope you'll post again soon!
    I would be very happy to hear some info on the abstract work, or is it a secret?
