Default Raw materials

Today we had to shoot into a local company who makes luxury (hence for yachts also) leather upholstery.

For miscalleneous reasons the shoot were done with our Canon 1DsMk3.

But when we came thru the room where they stock leather… I had to take the Sinar out of its case…

The following have been processed in C1-4 - No PP in PS except downsizing and cropping. Sharpening has been done directly in C1-4, then a very small amount in CS3 on the main views after downsizing (not on the 100% crops) and a very little noise Ninja in the 2nd pic.

Natural light from ceiling.

First pic:
100 ISO - ƒ11 - 2.53s - no noise reduction in C1-4 - Tripod - mirror locked
Sinar Hy6 / Sinar eMotion 75 LV - Lens Schneider Super-Angulon 3.5/40 - manual focus



100% crop details:

Buy the factory or marry their daughter to your son but make sure you can keep going back!

Lost in translation!

Nicolas,

I like the pictures so much that I'd want to use the place as a location for a very long time. The texture, curved cuts of the leather and the colors make for wonderful subjects for artistic pexpression. When I find something like that, I love to go back again and again. If you do, you will see an evolution of photographs that will surprise you. The leather with it's natural curves, cuts and folds present a simple set of surfaces for composing with natural light.

Asher

....sigh....

Just stop posting..... WILL YA?

;)

On a more serious note, as you already own an established business with some sort of secured revenue streams, perosnally, I would consider leasing the system over three years. May be an idea? The quality enhancement in your final product should be reflected in your prices and pay for the rates, ideally.
