Hi!
I have few questions about lighting , and i hope someone can help me.I like pictures of Daniel Klajmic. Id like to know how he gets his pictures to look like this:
http://www.hasselblad.de/gallery/mas...iShowYear=2004
there is more of his work on his web page : www.danielklajmic.com , does anyone know how he gets that deep green colours and relativly normal skin tones. Assuming it is done directly on film not in photoshop postproduction.
Or how to get pictures blue like this : http://www.thymann.com/content.asp#edit (pictures of a girl and trucks)
I think it is done combinig color filters on flash heads and filters on camera or tungsten balanced film, but when I tried that i dont seam to get the same results
Thanks!

If it's not done in Photoshop and is being done in camera, my guess would be that he is using one filter the camera and the complimentary filter on the key (on camera) light for the model. The two filters neutralize each other giving you a model with the correct color balance. Any slight variations could be corrected in PS later.

From the Hasselblad site, it appears that he shoots film, so he could also be doing some manipulation via chemistry.

From that Hassie site:

[ QUOTE ]
Daniel’s camera equipment consists of a Hasselblad 503CW with winder that he uses handheld. He often works with mixed lighting, in other words, existing light together with flash, and underexposes the background by two or three steps. He usually shoots with an aperture of 16 or 22 at 1/500 s. He uses Kodak Portra 160VC and Kodak T-MAX film.

Set your camera for tungsten lighting and use gels on the flash to change the color temp to tungsten (with film, buy tungsten film).

The flash being tungsten and the camera being set for tungsten give you "normal" looking skin, but the background is now skewed.

On the girls/semi photos, I think that is a flash set at about F22 to knock the crap out of the sun (the sky darkens as a result) and then a linear polarizer (as opposed to circular).

a lot of polarizers give the sky that very dark effect and it will be "graduated" from one side to the other depending on the angle.

But more important, look at the shot where the sun is directly behind the models head (on that same page).

not only is the sun not totally blown out to 3/4s of the image but appears to be a small ball (indicating a very tight aperature) but also the model is lit up from the front enough that her face is not obscured in the shadow.

From the distance these are shot, someone is pouring a TON of light on these shots....I would guess a couple thousand watt seconds.

Everything you need is in the Hassie post.

The sky using the sunny sixteen rule is generally between 16 and 22 (I suppose you could call it the Sunny 22 rule and be just as accurate).

Moving the shutter up to 500, would darken it by a couple of stops with 160 film.

Then POUR on the flash.

The mixed color lighting is a bit more difficult to deduce as there are several ways to get it.

When I tried using tungsten wb and corection filter on flash head I got light blue almost cyan like background and he gets dark(er) blue. I think he probably underexposed the background or he used a polariser.
I dont know how to get the background that green. I tried some green filters and magenta filters on heads but it didnt get the same result like Klajmic. Anyone has any idea what filters does he use? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
