Scott Detweiler1,289,647Fellow photographers, I am going to start doing a weekly Photoshop class for those interested.  We will start with the basics and work into more complex operations and features each week.  I plan to cover topics everyone should know when working on all kinds of images, from landscapes to portraits. You should have Photoshop CS3 or greater.  We will not be covering Photoshop Essentials.  Lightroom is also handy, but not required. The topic this week will be = Layers & Masks = If you have attended my Photoshop Hangouts in the past, please allow others to participate. This hangout will be in English, and you must have a camera and a microphone to participate.  These classes will be On-Air for those that just want to watch.

I need to learn to enjoy those happy photos that clients love to purchase. Currently I appear to be stuck it the dark and moody phase of things, and they don't always buy those.

In this case, I loved the short light and really took it to the next level using my bokeh textures that appear on so many of my images. It is here if you want it: (https://gumroad.com/l/Irog).

I am sure I will be posting some happier images from this session, but it's these images that really draw me in and seem to get all of the retouching love.

Several new images published in this month's Beaux Couture Magazine. This one features Sarah wearing a gown designed by Silversärk with make-up and hair by Robyn Schlei.

This was shot inside of the historic Pabst Mansion. Huge thanks to them for giving us a chance to shoot in such an amazing location!

Special thanks to Evie for arranging such an awesome evening.

Messing around with a bit of digital painting a few weeks ago. I have been using Artrage and a few other apps to make these. On average they take about 5 hours, but they are a nice way to relax and binge-listen/kinda watch to something on Netflix.

Many more newborn sessions in the past week, so expect a flood of those soon. Also, a few fashion shoots under my belt will yield a ton of new ladies soon, but many are headed to publication today, so a bit of a delay there.

Sometimes those models have issues with the props on the set... and sometimes the photographer takes a quick picture of it happening. :-)

Kim here was a real trooper in dealing with the stuff laying around this room, and I think she was hamming it up a bit because she knew I was going to take this shot.

The storm of little babies continues at the studio. Rest assured I also have some fashion coming soon, as I had a pretty large shoot last week that yielded quite a few stunning images.

So many babies this week! I think this is our 7th in less than 5 days. They are a lot more fun to shoot than I thought they would be. Styling is fun at any age, and the posing is really the challenge. Lighting is pretty simple, but I think I can improve on what the typical newborn photographer is using, but time will tell.

We also started blogging some of our sessions with some things we have learned as well as tips. What are your thoughts?

Most of you don't know this, but my partner and I shoot a ton of #newborn babies at our studio. It isn't the sexy fashion or fine art stuff you are used to seeing in my feed, so I have been skipping it. However, since that is most of what I have been working on, the feed needs some content. :-)

Connie and are two of the top newborn and #maternity photographers in the Milwaukee area. We love shooting these, and you can still have a ton of fun styling and wrapping them around a theme.

Just got back from speaking at this years ImagingUSA in Texas. Was a great time, and the room was packed! I had a great time, met a ton of new people, and didn't trip on stage. :-)

This year I am shooting high-school senior portraits in the modern way, as well as the more traditional style. I prefer this painterly look, but I am not sure it will fly with the kids these days. Thoughts?

Got the cover of Shotcaller Magazine with this image of Haley! I love this image, and I am glad it was able to get some additional traction.

I am going to be offering a live 4 week Photoshop course for 9 people. This will be done via Google Hangouts so we can screen share and talk in real time. Lessons will be twice a week with homework in between to hit-home the material.

Cost is $150 per person and this will kick off the second week of Jan. You need to have a microphone & headphones, also a webcam is a nice addition but not mandatory.

You should have the full version of Photoshop CS6 or later as Photoshop Elements isn't going to cut it. I will also be offering Lightroom and Capture One retouching sessions as well if there are folks interested.

Note this is limited to 9 people, and this is a beginner level class. If you are interested PM me to lock in... more »

I really love body painting. It releases me from the constraints of wardrobe and opens the doors to creativity like nothing else. It isn't a big deal to me that they are nude, but it is more of a type of clothing without the limits of expensive fabrics.

Model is Haley and of course Otto did the body paint. Make-up was done by Colour Law.

"Available Light"

Was looking through some past images and came across this one from a past event we had at Green Olive Studio. Love the make-up that Law did on Kellie, and Shane handing all that hair as well as a make-shift top from some belts we had laying around the studio.

If you are going to ImagingUSA and are interested in learning how to think with light, be sure to catch me at the conference! #ppa #ImagingUSA

Google+ hangout tonight (around 8pm CST) to critique a few images and work on some advanced composition skills.

If you are interested, please comment below and I will invite when it starts. If you do NOT have a webcam and a mic, please do not request an invitation. Nothing more boring than a non-interactive person sitting there taking a spot.

I have started working on a book explaining how I shoot my bodyscapes for clients that would like artistic nude images. Most often these are black and white or monochrome in this example), and make stellar art. The lighting is usually the challenge folks run into as well as some of the posing to keep the images artistic rather than lessons in anatomy.

I have also found that the level of fitness or age doesn't really play into the result as much as you think it would. The woman in this image here is in her 40s, just as an example.

Retouching is also a bit different, as there are challenges unique to the lighting and textures. I often spray the clients with a mixture of water and glycerin to form little drops, almost like sweat on the skin. Retouching after the fact means you need to pay more attention to how things work in and around these drops, which is frustrating if you... more »

When I was in Door County with Connie for a few days we experienced perfect autumn weather. However, on the morning of our sunrise shoot, Lake Michigan was kinda angry. When I combined a few photos of the waves into a single image, it leveled up. :-)

Sometimes I struggle with an image. It might be the colors, some distraction in the background, or some issue that really turns me away from it. This one was one of those struggles, where several factors played against it for the longest time. Removing people in the image, as well as issues with copious amounts of graffiti on the walls made this one a complete pain.

However, now that all of that is resolved I am pretty pleased with the work. +Roo Phoria did an amazing job as always, and I think this turned into a nice storytelling type of photo.

Part of me knows photography can just be simple capturing of images, playing with light, and paying attention to composition.

However, the reason I got into photography to begin with was the creation of art. I LOVE messing around in Photoshop, Painter, and a few other application and trying to wrestle something bigger out of simple photos.

These conceptual pieces are what drive my creative spirit and really excite me. Sure, the daily photography grind can be satisfying, but the client dictates the level of artistic bend one can place on the result. When it is my own art, I get to choose.

If you are interested in chatting with me about this, or would like to hear how I approach such topics, we can have a whisky or two at ImagingUSA coming up in January. I for one will be quite happy to leave the cold Wisconsin weather for a chance to head to Texas.

Nikon D800 85mm ƒ1.4 @ƒ5.6 250th ISO100

This is an image from my Conceptual Photography Session I held a while back. I will be hosting another one soon, so get ready.

Einstein behind the "posing rock" (yea, that is apparently a thing), pointing straight up, sitting on a bucket with a pink gel on it (7" reflector), into a fog machine stream. The allowed light spill is hitting a cold gray sweep at about the 4' height causing the transition area from pink to blue you see in the background. Overhead is a boomed Einstein strip box with a cloth grid and the inner baffle removed. Triggered via a Cyber Commander (I love this thing).

Anyone heading the ImagingUSA? If you are, let's hook up for a beer! I will be teaching a few sessions on lighting and one on something crazy, probably like this. #ppa

One of the shots I had in my mind when Connie and I recently had the Nikon 200mm ƒ2 lens for a weekend. A little speedlight magic, parabolic modifer, and a few gels lead to this storytelling image.

Shot this in a large subdivision copse about a mile from Bilda's Pub. You know where I had to go afterwards. :-)

Connie and I had an amazing weekend using the Nikkor 200mm ƒ2 monster of a lens. This super heavy light bucket really took things to the next level. Also some interesting learning curves with such a long reach, as constantly backing-up because a common place event. Lens is here: http://amzn.to/2fUoFGO

Huge thanks to all of the folks that came out with their families to take advantage of the short time the lens was visiting us. I am sure those photos will be coming to the stream soon. #nikon

Connie and I had an amazing weekend using the Nikkor 200mm ƒ2 monster of a lens. This super heavy light bucket really took things to the next level.

Shooting fashion is something I love doing. I get to put my spin on the look and when I find a model like this, the job is awesome.

I have quite a few shots from this catalog session, and I am sure they will be popping up over the next few weeks.

Celebrating #Halloween with one of my favorite spooky series. I shot this in the room where Brooks hangs himself in the Shawshank Redemption.

I get an opportunity to shoot in the abandoned prison each year, and on this occasion we had a wonderful series planned. The entire set was also published in Visionary Magazine for those interested in seeing them all.

Connie and I had a little adventure in Door County the past day or so. Perfect timing yielded lots of wonderful autumn colors, but we also captured an epic sunrise and sunset. This is my favorite sunset from Ephraim, Wisconsin on the 26th.

Thanks to the random photographer on that pier for standing super still for a really long time. :-) Also, if anyone is missing any sensor dust, I have it.

Here is another shot of that amazing #latex dress on Haley. Playing with the black and white a bit today, just because it has been a while.

I don't shoot much pin-up style of model photography, but I can appreciate it when it is done well.

However, on this day I decided to give it another chance, and I am quite pleased with it. Sure, it isn't the most traditional images in that style, but it is pretty much the only thing I have that is remotely close to it. :-)

This weekend I had a studio photography session with my very own partner-in-crime Connie. Anne did her make-up, and Otto did some killer paint as always. Her chosen theme was a fairy.

Ever considered being body painted as an amazingly creative Christmas gift? We offer sessions that include the body paint, make-up, hair, retouching, and a hard-cover photo story book you can give to your significant other! You choose the theme and we can make it a reality, complete with styling.

As the scheduling for these is typically longer than a normal shoot, if you are interested please contact me asap. Note that paint takes about 6-8 hours to apply, so please have an entire day reserved for the session.

Here is the #latte I made for my wife yesterday morning. She bought me an #espresso machine because I love making drinks when we have company. This was her alternative to me getting people drunk constantly, but it works in her favor and I think she saw that coming. :-)

I am resurrecting this video because a lot of people have been asking for it. Since Trey changed his website, it was no longer available.

I have made it cheaper because it is a bit aged, but still all valid concepts. The screw-ups are even left in here, so you can watch me wriggle out of those situations. :-)

Enjoy!

My partner +Connie Westphal hopped out of the car to take a photo of the rising sun and morning mist. I grabbed a quick pic of her using her phone to capture the moment.

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. Been buried in shoots these past 3 weeks. I think I have shot at least one client or concept every day of the week!

Had a chance a few weeks ago to get another headshot done from the recent events at the studio. I just love a moody Rembrandt lighting pattern on the face! More coming after senior photo season slows down.

I thought this would be handy for those wondering how some of us keep track of so many photos, and yet keep them backed up. Let me know what you think in the comments on the video.

Apparently in the universe of hair stylists, there is a contest called the NAHA Hair Awards (think that is correct). Winning this is like winning an Oscar, but with a lot shorter speaches and less drama.

The organization NAHA has entries from all over, where a stylist will team up with a make-up artist and photographer. This is our entry from last year. I wonder what this year will bring?

Here is another image from my themed shoot at +Green Olive Studio a few weeks ago. Yes, her eyes are really that big. :-)

For those interested, I sometimes do these retouching sessions live! My youtube channel is mostly me playing video games, but I am working on changing that if there is enough interest.
