Do some of you have a favourite Portfolio Link ?
Friday, October 22, 2010
Today I really took some time to show you some
some link tip's and Blogs that I follow now after
calvin, told me about them and this is what he
was saying about them....
Hope there is something for everyone
So, have fun with the post and don't forget to
leave some feedback
This is one of the Best community for Post Production ( Photoshopping )
from which he Knows, he can really say how much he learned from this
Page and how much Contact's he created throw it.
They also host regular Webinar's for small prizes.
Calvin's words where what a great page.
Could be one of the biggest Art Community on the Planet.
you could find everything there, from brushes, textures,
Stockfotos for practise or just some inspiration throw
great Pictures. In the beginning you might have a problem
finding your way around but it's worth it, so calvin's word's
When you guy's think about business Xing is the best place.
it is like facebook but just for business use only, just imagine you
get to meet someone and directly talk about business with him .
How about that ? You can also just have a small chat for the start
and later talk about business but this Platform is really just for
business use and to get in contact with other business People.
Calvin say's, it is a really great place to get to know other each other
and the best thing about it, is you can directly see who has new and
interesting Business contact's, and that is where your Network start's.
You can't go wrong with him, you will have to pay 17 dollars per month
and you will find the best material of photography and photoshop. How it works ?
Login and register and find a big range of online training's which you can see
throw an online stream.
This is a Platform where I actually never miss a video, If you guy's signup
It might cost you something, but still everyone has to decide that for himself.
I personally Think that more Education is better than technique.
Calvin say's : There are so many Bogs into that I look
and this one is one of my favourite's
Blog's it is so open, neat good structured, always
filled with new Information and it is so
good written and entertaining plus the best thing about it is, it's
always active and you will always find a new great Post's
Calvin is not totally sure if this Page should fit into
Portfolios or Blog's, But anyway
on this page you will find a lot of great Portfolios,
well actually more Pictures and
Photo's but it's a good Site.
Here you will find a lot of tutorials, and sometimes really
great one's and some small nice Interviews or features.
But I Think this is one of the most active
Blog in Photoshopping - Tutorials.
On this blog you will find some information that you
will not find so easy somewhere
else, You might even find a video or Interview which can
be up to 90min so have some time !
Chase is a brilliant Photographer how also host really good Trainings
Calvin does not Follow this blog for a long time now, but that what he has see'n
was really good and great. Very good videos and Post's about Photography,
Post production and video editing.
Sometimes some German Post's but mostly english and very nicely written and
always active. See for your self .
This is a German Blog but it is Calvin's studio's Blog.
The studio is called Weisches Lischt which means Soft Light.
try it you might find one or two interesting video's here and some more
Information about calvin's Photography Life.
So Guy's I hope you can Find some interesting Links in today's Post.
On the Next Blog Post's I will post about some of the best
Post production Portfolio's
and some Favourites.

Today I want to show u the First
Finished Images from the Marc Terenzi shoot
On-top of that some info about the Image
How Calvin and his Partner Matthias created them
and I had the honor to assisted them
Let me Know what you guys think about it
Marc, his Friend Jason and around 12
dishes and many Different Softboxes so actually nothing could go wrong.
After a small tour Through the locations we started Thinking
( wow, ok this will not be an easy shoot )
The light in the showroom was not really bright enough and not really muddy so
we had to shoot with some extra Speed flashes and had a shutter time of
1sec - to 1,5 sec.. then the Focus was another big problem it was
too dark for the focus so we had to lighten up the models with a torch..
and an iso of 1000 so we could get a bit of the ambient light.
We first Photographed them on the Location and after that in our 3 - Light setup
for some extra's we used those to do some more Postproduction on them.
The last Image was in one of the ghost houses " on Location "
Here we also had to fight with the light situation so we used a Studio light
with a Beauty dish and 1 sec shutter speed.
So, after all the shoot was quite quick and enjoyable
but the worst part of the shoot was that the theme music was playing the whole
time so we really had the feeling of being in a horror Life for one day.
Hope you guys enjoy this one !
