It Is Time For Another... LUMIPro Spotlight!

*** Walks into the room her heels clicking across the floor, as she sits down at the desk, she waves several men inside. The men are all carrying large canvases. Turning to the people in the room, she smiles. ***

Well, hello everyone! I know you all must know what it is time for. I love the last spotlight we did some much that I decided we should do another. Isn't that a great idea? So would you say, we get started?

Aren't these photos wonderful?! I just want to remind everyone if your Flickr photos are not shareable makes it harder to share them on the blog. Just keep that in mind when you are posting your photos. I love sharing all of the wonderful art they you guys create. Congratulations to all of our spotlights.

I also wanted to quickly remind everyone that there is still time to vote for the Avi Choice Awards. We at LUMIPro want to think everyone for their love and support. We couldn't do this without you guys. Well, until next time... Happy Shooting!

You Know You Have Missed Them...

*** She sashays into the sales room as several men, carrying large prints, follow behind her. As the the men begin to frame the prints she turns to the others in the room. ***

Stefan and I know you guys have really missed... LUMIPro Spotlights! For all of our new comers here is how a spotlight works:

You guys post your awesome photos in LUMIPro's Flickr Group. Periodically Stefan and/or I will pick some of our favorites and feature them on the blog. If we do not pick one of your photos don't worry, there will be other spotlights!

So why don't we give this a try...

Art Mimics Real Life

Now that the 2016 release is out, I thought i'd share a photo I shot tonight using LUMIPro.


Sometimes to get inspiration i use my tumblr of RL photos.  For this shot used this photo


About 15 minutes to get dressed.  30 minutes tweaking a pose using anypose.

If you notice the light is coming from the left and right side of her legs.  I used two projectors and used the blue light to add just a touch of lighting for her shoulders.



I set the windlight to 100% dark and the gamma to 0.01.

Here is the raw shot before photoshop


15 minutes in photoshop and done!

Total time little over an hour.  Thanks Sammie for lending me your booty and your patience.
