Headshots

This was the first paid photoshoot with the new Nikon D800 and it was a fun one.
I like doing individual portraits though I don’t advertize them half enough… probably because I’m more used to weddings paying the bills and sending me to fun locations.

NIKON D800

For those interested in my thoughts about my first paid photoshoot with the D800 go to the end of the blog post

ABOUT Jennie

Jennie Litster is an Opera Singer

I met her at a wedding about 1.5yrs ago and we’ve been great friends ever since. The last time she had headshots was about 4yrs ago so she decided it was time to get new ones.

She uses the headshots heavily and says she’ll probably send out several hundred and I’m not sure what amount of time. But every year she travels around auditioning for different parts usually New York and California and sometimes Europe. This year she had a full time job working with the Utah Opera so she was here for a while.

The light in the house was so nice that we just did most of the headshots there… specially helpful because there was no wind… except for when we stood next to the door.

There are a bunch of looks for her to choose from as I know she’ll be very selective about which one she uses. I have about 90 pictures in the full gallery

GOWNS

Doing the pictures of the gowns though more fun was a secondary need for her. But we were able to get three different gowns

NIKON D800 Early Review

I new I’d be getting a very high MegaPixel count and that now my pictures could be blown up to cover the side of a large building.

Sharpness. What I didn’t realize was that because of this (and probably other factors) is that my pictures would be much much sharper.
In fact I’m still blown away at how much sharper my images are and I hope that this was not just the circumstances of this one photoshoot and a few other pictures I’ve taken.

Blown out highlights (bright spots) … well simply put: There are fewer. The camera really does have a much higher range. I guess it makes sense that it was rated the highest camera in this department by DxOMark.

Auto Focus – I still need more interaction specially in adverse situations like backlight or low light. But so far so good. The best compliment I can give is that I have yet to stress or work hard to focus on anything.

Battery Life - So far so good. I think I shot about 1400 pictures on the last battery. But I’ll keep double checking to make sure i was correct. The real test will come when I plug in my GPS and see how fast that depletes the battery. I don’t think I’ll be getting the grip very soon because it’s crazy expensive for a battery grip. But it’ll be wierd to re-adjust to not having one and not being able to use AA batteries to power the camera

File Size – Yep they’re big. 40-50MBs … and this has changed my workflow a bit. Meaning I am now starting to delete pictures from my computer that are blurry and out of focus. In fact I’m starting to chimp straight from the camera as well. The center button zoom is a life saver and I couldn’t live without it. But more than that when you are zoomed in you can scroll around in the picture much faster than any previous camera i’ve had and that does make a difference for me. I used to say storage is so cheap I don’t need to delete… but when your pictures are 3 times the size and you’re bringing home 15GB for a small shoot and 60+GB sometimes for a wedding then you start calculating numbers and realizing you could have about 4-5TBs of pictures a year when you’re used to 1-1.5 … Yeah so I’m changing my mind on the deleting thing. Good thing for me that I’ve already selected tens of thousands of blurry pictures over the years that I could easily, with one click of the button, delete.

ISO – I know people are more interested in High ISO performance but I think I’m most excited about having a lower ISO setting of ISO50 that will be awesome for night shots or even shooting at f/1.4 in the middle of the day. There is indeed noise at higher ISOs and since there are a lot more megapixels you can really zoom in and see it. But when you zoom out and just see the picture online and stuff I don’t think it’s a big issue. What I’m trying to say is that I just assume it’s better than the D700 but will try shooting some more HighISO stuff and get back to you on that.

COLOR – I’m still getting used to turning the pictures I take into the bright colorful images i’m used to. Using the Vivid profile in LR4 is good but not quite as punchy as I’m used to. Also I’ve found myself tweaking the WB in post a bit more than I was ever used to and I’m hoping it was just for this shoot. I think my picture color will be different than in the past… but I’m sure I’ll find a good method and be happy about it. With a short amount of experience one thing I could say is that the colors look more real.

BUTTONS - My muscle memory says that the AF-L button, the Mode button and the Front scroll wheel are all just slightly in the wrong place. It’s been awkward for me to adjust to.

Happy surprise – Changing Image size on the fly. Yep I’ve programmed the Fn button to change between full frame, 1.2x, 1.5x and 5:4 image sizes… it’s been pretty fun actually and only time will tell if I’ll continue to do that when the newness wears off… but something tells me I will if only because it saves so much space on the hard drive. Well to be fair it does help me previsualize the correct cropping when I can’t get any closer to my subject.

ONE TEST - You can’t really take anything I write to seriously because I’ve only shot 1400 pictures with the camera. But in this next week I’ll have done 2 weddings and this time next week I’ll be in Japan to do an engagement shoot and taking lots of travel pictures. So that’s when I’ll get a really good idea.

I thought I’d be happier with a D4 than a D800 but I really am warming up to the idea of a D800 the image quality is spectacular and that’s a pretty big deal. I think I’ll just stay away from a D4 so that I don’t know any better and my wallet is happier that way.

ZOOM IN
To get a better feel for the images why don’t you go to the gallery on SmugMug where you can view the images pretty large

People ask about classes and internships often.

I usually put the tasks back on them to test their sincere interest and because I have to see where to actually invest my time and if it’s worth it.

The Wedding Photographer going Commercial

Who am I? Scott Jarvie the Wedding and Travel Photographer

That’s how I introduce myself.

Meaning: that’s what I tell people I do…. weddings and lots of travel photography. I don’t put a lot of the travel stuff on this blog anymore and leave it to the Envision The World Blog and even then I haven’t had a lot of time to get those pictures worked on and edited. So mainly we see a lot of wedding pictures and the corresponding sessions that come with that like engagements, bridals and formals.

Recent History

So recently I did a photoshoot for a hair and makeup studio out on the salt flats (See this post with their pictures included or this full gallery)… this is more of a commercial type shoot but it was still primarily dealing with people and that’s something I know how to do. They liked my style (from what they saw on the website) and they were very happy with the results. In fact not a day after I published their photoshoot one of their clients came asking about a similar photo shoot.

The Style

OK so I do mainly weddings and I would say that my style is as follows

Personable A pleasent interaction and real experience and an approachable feel to the pictures (Friendly)

Personality - Capturing the real aspect of the people and the overall feel of the event

Emotion - Doesn’t matter which kind just want to allow and document REAL stuff

“Ideas for my models”

I tell people that my pictures are what the person is + lighting … there aren’t models for my ideas these are ideas for my models, all with a Jarvie-esque look… which is bright, clean and dynamic

How I work

(more…)

 001_7S29934 002_7S29902

A different look: Meaning a bunch of different looks in the same spot.

A different look: As in a different kind of spot to begin with.

Try both of these things.
You don’t need an amazing background for good pictures… sometimes they’ll even detract from the main part of the picture which in this case was the bride.

We got the flowers, the full dress, the face and emotion and eyes and all that stuff.

 013_7S29937 003_7S29900

These pictures were taken late last year but I fear I might have glanced over them and never really shown them on the blog… so here they are.

 002_J7S2890 012_J7S2904

So Dustin Izatt organized a little get together where photographers were going to take pictures of other photographers.
“Headshot Exchange”

Side note: I never knew there were two different sections of Pierpont Ave in SLC

I went and took some pictures of the others.
And here I’m showing them.
See all the ones I edited here –
If you’re one of the photographers and want more of these let me know and I’ll gladly upload more. (Assuming I have some)
Oh and you should go and check out their photography.

I’ve been enjoying doing mini-shoots here at the house.

I’d love to continue with them… either Inside (studio) or outside.
Just know that while studio can be fun I’m more enjoyable to work with outside because I’m not consumed with lighting setups.

They’re fast, easy, painless and correspondingly because of these things very inexpensive.
But they are usually on my terms… and if you want more of a real shoot these won’t take the place.

Often they’ll be used to teach my students (which happens to mean you’ll probably get more pictures)

What’s good to do?

  • Senior Pictures
  • Headshots
  • Individual Portraits
  • Pet Photography
  • Roommate pictures
  • Married Couples
  • Children
  • Short Model session (test session)
  • Pics for mother’s day
  • Actor headshots

Want in?

So if you want a mini-shoot let me know, I’ll try to schedule one day a month to do them, or get on a list and I’ll email people when I have a free afternoon.

I will charge pennies on the dollars for these, since they don’t require me to go anywhere, since they’re much much shorter, and since they’re a whole lot less stress. When I say less time, I mean there should be no expectations of time, you’d be surprised how many good pictures I can take in a very short period of time. Then after I’ll get them online and you can order prints or save them for use on facebook for free.

Who knows get on the list maybe some day I’ll offer a shoot to the first person to bring me a nice dinner.

I’d love to stack the portfolio with all sorts of pretty models and expand beyond wedding photography.

If you’re interested get yourself on a list.

UPDATE

This post was for 2010 – for 2011 you should go here

I’m doing a 10 day bootcamp to train the interns for the summer I’m focusing on FULL time interns.

Update:

Sorry I screwed up… I’m not doing an internship this summer. Because what I’m doing by definition can’t be classified an internship as I’ve been reminded. I thought I’d use easy terminology but I was wrong. It’s a hybrid more school-like, but not.

I’ve got a lot of response on my terminology I’ve chosen… I suppose they’re right… this is not really a true internship… it’s more of a crazy mixture of a schooling experience with lots of aspects of an internship. So there! Now what to call it? I don’t think a typical internship is near as beneficial to me or you. So I chose a hybrid to kick the butt of either of the two options of school or internship.

———-
it’s not like I’m the only one that could do this, it’s just I’m the only one crazy enough to actually attempt it – Jarvie

Help a few, (a whole ton) is the best thing I can thing of right now.

Presently

Things have been great with the present 5 interns. I’ve spent a heck of a lot of time training them all and I’m happy to note that we’ve done some awesome workshops and trainings and I get to brag about how good of photographers they are. The purpose of this present internship was to focus on them being good at the post process stuff, but you can’t really do that without helping them in every aspect of their photography. Plus there’s been a bunch of class type experiences and shooting ops. It’s been a crazy time as we’ve just been trying to stay afloat when they’re at the office, trying to get projects done. Never really ever catching up. But I still have faith one day it will happen.

The time is now… um… Soon

The time has come to stock up for the summer on some more help.
One intern ends up taking me sooo much time to train that it’s anything but time beneficial. (Even though the satisfaction of helping others is always nice)

So earlier this year I went with the school type setup. JarvieU – maybe you’ve heard of it. haha

If one intern isn’t time efficient I somehow figured getting a whole bunch of them would

(read more about it – If you don’t like long explanations I’d stop now… since when are my posts short? – Besides would we really click?)

THIS SUMMER - We’ll do an intense summer internship.

(more…)

  • I love teaching – and yet have limited time.
  • I have several photo projects needing work – and yet have limited funds.
  • I have many people asking to assist and intern and put on classes and workshops – and yet there is only me.

Stepping up to the plate

I recognize I’m not the best photographer and so my establishment of a school should not be a belief that I am the most qualified.
Merely that I’m the most willing to actually make it happen, the most creative to think it up, and the most crazy to actually try it.

Not sure what the name is, so for now it’s either Jarvie U or jDigital U – I’m open to input

I have grand ambitions how this project/school/opportunity can help everyone

  • Help each student become great photo editors and great photographers
  • Help with my work on my photography
  • Help with the ATP and ETW projects
  • Build a community that exercizes pay it forward learning
  • Build a community that actively seeks new, exciting and creative learning experiences
  • Build a school experience that actively promotes the students and a community that promotes eachother.
  • Build a community that can point to an achievement that garners respect and attracts attention for the members of the community.
  • Build a community of photographers who believe excellence of craft before deception, who improve their craft and respect for their clients and therefore improve the name and the art of photography.
  • It can also help other photographers and of course people looking for photographers.

It’s more than an internship becuase it includes

  • Classes
  • Field Trips
  • Photo Trips
  • Assisting experiences (with many photographers)
  • Reviews, critiques, QA
  • And many more benefits

Yet it is still somewhat an internship

  • Because student-interns still come and assist in the office learning first hand Photo Editing and Photo workflow and also emphasize in another area of their choice.

How this can be done? (How can Scott stay sane)

Apparently I like to see how far I can stretch myself.

Previous instances of going big.

  • Doing long wedding day shoots … up to 14hrs once.
  • Doing shoots I’ve never done before is always a fun challenge and stretch.
  • Going to a new location is a fun stretch I’ve done so many times it’s not that stretchy anymore.
  • Like when I shot 60,000 pictures in 3 months and drove 12,000 miles while I was in europe.
  • Or when I had like 8 weddings in a couple weeks in several different states and drove almost 5k miles with several plane flights all during the Christmas season equaling an insane amount of pictures.
  • Or when I did 2 weddings in one day at 2 different locations
  • Or when I did 3 weddings in one day (only one reception)
  • Or when i did 32 shoots for the 2nd annual charity shoot
  • And at the same time bought and used for the first time studio equipment the day before all these shoots.

 

Another fun challenge. 

This week I’ll be shooting 50+ photo shoots.

(more…)

Yes a FREE photo shoot from yours truly…

Hard to believe this is the 3rd year of my yearly tradition of shooting pictures for FREE

But I’m excited to do it again and have some new changes to spice it up a ton!

I’m going back to my roots like the first year and doing a Fall Colors theme.
Last year I did a week long of studio shoots and I’ll also offer that during the week as well.

So here’s the deal for those who don’t know.

I do quick shoots all week long for FREE … which for no financial gain on my part.
My way of saying thanks to my friends. Thus the charitable part.

The Charity

But last year I started a new tradition of taking donations which were given to a charitable organization.

The organization will be FFHE (Family to Family Humanitarian Expeditions)
It does a lot of great work in Mexico for families in need and also affects the lives of those that go on the expeditions

Check them Out http://ffhe.org/

I also end up donating a week to shoot for this organization in Mexico.
Here’s some pics from the expedition from last year.

i will note that some of the cost will go towards some equipment needed for the shoots

Survey

In any case… this post is to announce that the event will be held from Oct 5th to the 10th

We are not scheduling quite yet but you can help to give us get that together.

The theme is FALL COLORS + Studio

Which canyon would you prefer (we’ll do all of them just need to see demand)

  • Provo (Sundance) Canyon
  • American Fork Canyon
  • Little Cottonwood Canyon
  • Big Cottonwood Canyon
  • Other Canyon
  • Studio

Which Day

Monday through Saturday

What time

10-2 (Studio) or 3-7 (Canyon)

Minimum donation

I’ve found over the years that those paying nothing do not seem to appreciate the offer
Plus it goes to a good cause.

So would everyone be willing to donate a minimum of $30
This is not only a charity for a good cause this is a charity for YOU so I don’t want to exclude those that can’t.

So the questions are is $30 acceptable and secondly what would a short shoot be worth Donating for you?

FAQ

I will do another post when i get a few minutes and announce how to sign up for a shoot spot.
They will fill up fast and I will let those doing the survey get first choice

Send survey to accounts@jarviedigital.com or just respond here.

I will also post pictures of previous years.

One quick note is that I won’t be doing any wedding shoots for Free and the time periods will be somewhat limited to fit everyone in.

Last years many people showed up to do family shoots, roommate pictures, individual shoots, model pictures,

BE Creative!! I wan’t this to be fun… it’s your chance to do shoots you wouldn’t have done if you had to pay $500 to get done.

Albion Basin photowalk

Saturday 5AM (Tomorrow)
Find more information on flickr page , Blog Page

Ann torrence is leading us up to a beautiful spot early early in the morning.
This promises to be an awesome trip for only those tough enough to get up that early and hike.

I don’t have any trouble waking up and I love mornings, so I plan on being there.
Small groups like this make for a great way to get to know each other… hikes are specially great.
No one should be able to use the excuse that they have a wedding going on at that time of the day, you don’t come it’s because you’re not tough enough. haha J/K

Bring your best toys but I’m assuming we should pack light for the hike.

I’m still deciding what to bring. One camera and a couple lenses.
14-24 for the great panoramic views. 70-200 in case some critter needs to be shot and the 24-70 because I’m buying it today.
And maybe even the 50 1.4 because it’s so light anyway.
I’ll also get to try out my super lightweight carbon fiber tripod.

So i guess I’ll be trudging along with all that stuff… but oh well… I’ll probably convince someone to shoot with the 70-200 for part of the hike.

Ann Torrence says:

“Nautical twilight is when we need to be working out compositions, to be ready for things to start to color up by civil twilight.”

“Then after sunrise, as the sun races across the valley, you can track with it to do flower portraits, or trundle up toward Secret Lake (about a 1 mile hike). Possibility to see moose, perhaps closer than you’d like.”

Photographer BBQ

Tuesday 6PM

Further information can be found at the event page on Facebook

Jeremy hall is the great organizer.
He plans in advance and always has a great turnout… if he can’t do it really well, he doesn’t do it at all.
He is the master organizer of Utah’s highly successful PhotoCampUtah (P.s. sign up to be notified about PhotoCamp 2010, we’re gonna plan an even bigger better one this next year)

It’ll be at his house, bing some food and mingle without the pressure and need to take pics.
Of course there will most certainly be a lot of us being geeky and talking techy.

Photo Editing SHOWDOWN

Facebook event page

This wednesday at 6pm the gloves come off when up to 10 local photographers compete at the Draper Pictureline

177 w 12300 Draper Utah

They will be editing the same batch of photos and then the audience (which is guaranteed to be standing room only – so come and expect to stand)

We will all vote on our favorites and in the end crown this month’s champion.

There is still time to sign up to compete as most people just want to watch.

It will be a great learning experience and I will be presenting the pictures at the end and using it as a teaching moment. Showing what the photogs did to achieve their results.

Send Pictures
We will be accepting pictures for use in competition. If you’d like to see your picture edited in about 10 different ways send them to me jarvie@jarviedigital.com
They must be in DNG format and not already edited. That’s about the only requirements.

Saturday = Wedding – most of day

Respond on the Business page on facebook

Need more persuasion the Utah photographic community is among the best in the world??

We just had a Strobist group meetup at the great Salt Lake where a lot of people showed up.
A couple weeks ago with the World Wide photowalk there were over 5 photowalks in the Northern Utah area, with full capacity on a couple of them
There are a couple consistent groups who meet on a weekly basis.
There are great stores like pictureline and pixels who serve the community well.
Lots of photographers who share quite a lot.
The first PhotoCamp here was way way sold out and over 300 people came. When 200 were expected.
Probably great percentage of photographers in Utah than any where else.

And I’m here… so take that.

A chance to win super duper prizes

BACKGROUND (Yesterday)

I went on a photowalk yesterday.
I was around of a lot of awesome photographers, plenty of seasoned professionals.
But there were also a few photographers who were new to the game.
Some were brand new… having bought a new DSLR camera a week before and in one case the day before.

I have taught a lot of editing workshops recently.
Lightroom editing stuff: For beginners, intermediate and advanced.

But it’s been a while since I’ve taught actual photo skills and camera tech knowledge.
How to take better pictures stuff.
I did some yesterday and I remembered how fun it was.

You can ask Suzanne and Steph about it… we did an unorganized 2-3hr session back when I first met them.
I used to do it all the time for friends years ago when I wasn’t so busy.

I want to do it again. But I don’t want to charge and I want people to earn it.

THEREFORE >> Workshop

I think I want to do an all day kinda photo workshop thingy.
There are other winning options for those not needing or can’t make it to a workshop

If you would like to know more…
