    Morgan, I notice you shoot a lot of tilt. what is your rule or guidelines for when/where? And same with the BG blow-out stuff. That's an art form I just don't have a handle on.

    Working with one of the best SFX artists on an impromptu shoot......... this shoot was more about documenting the process but this one came out okay....... No blood on the costumes and car.....but not an option. But I got free creative control on my shots.

    Strange - overall I very rarely go dutch - so I suppose when it feels right. Blowing - dont it since shooting B+W film - I think it is only frowned upon by video people due the the crap cameras they have historicaly shot on. the alexa apparently blows well.

    Your pic - dont like it - but whatever floats your boat - I think if you want to recreate Weegee et al you need more DOF - F16/11 and a harsher flash if you have one or can remove the modifier in any way - also think about the flash position up and to the left

    Yeah, for some reason, the 'color' just doesn't seem to match... but here's a non-crime WeeGee... ok, maybe it's a 'crime' in the making...



    It does have a bit of grain, but the 'flash' zone is there...

    This shot is interesting, beyond the amorous sailor's 'movie appreciation'... there's the guy on the top left, who is looking at the couple, more than the screen, and there's a guy sleeping, probably snoring... in the back row just behind the couple... Ah, I remember these sort so theaters well...

    You may consider some of the '3-D' tools in photoshop to create some blood splatter on the car and clothing, as well as more 'holes' of the apparent gun shots...

    I've not experimented with the latest 3-D PS stuff as yet... since I've been more inclined to 'moving pictures'... so, I can't really say how well PS works on this sort of thing.

    LOL, strange you suggest that......discussing with the MUA that very thing........

    The flash positioning, yeah, not happy either......I want to get a tether/extension for my flash unit so I can be more flexible in positioning. But until then, I either shoot natural light or it lives above the camera.

    What was your motivation for the shot? There is an interesting simplicity to it that I like. Grainy, older color palette.

    Three Mile Island From Three Miles Away.
    I was actually shooting some guys flyfishing for Steelhead on Lake Ontario, when I spotted the smoke stacks far away. All I had at the time was my Nikon FM2 and a 300mm f4 . The quality of the image was going to be very lyrical thanks to the grain in the film. It's as spooky as an Nuke Powerplant is likely to be.
