Simple..I didn't have a problem. Because of the light i.e. high contrast thus extreme shadows and highlights, there was no problem. I used f 5.6-f8.0 for optimum sharpness.

I didn't say his style sucks, just that I didn't like it which is a huge difference.
Obviously, and I have already stated this, it works for him and a lot of people like it so he must be doing something right. Most of them truly are good photos, I was just throwing my personal opinion out there for a few people (maybe its just me, though) to agree with.
Anyway, sorry to semi-hijack the thread, get back to talking about that lovely lady!
Congrats again Ben!
I sometimes think my work Sucks! No problem.

Funny, I now find myself in little Poland in Toronto. When you started talking I was wondering why you didn't sound French at all--then you were telling stories about growing up in Toronto.

Hey--I was in Grenoble in '83. Went to Élysée Chatin for CM1... how do I remember that? But at least I escaped the Toronto-French accent

I think your style is fallow by the order: photographer -> light -> lens -> camera body... I was watching the movie so many times and i can't figured out the setting of the lights... I would pay for something like a map... for each picture taken. Exifs are not enough... Maybe you could to found some school or course at least?

Fun stuff . Particularly after already having seen the pictures, and then now seeing video from the shoot.

Weird shoes she is wearing in the beginning, but what do I know
