9 years ago - Randy - thanks. Check out the photos that I have nominated and 1 that I've purchased so far; they have similar lighting and color tones to what I'm looking for. -Joel
9 years ago - Thank you for the nomination.
9 years ago - Lichtblick - This photo 53f581fc499fc22b4ecfa271 is very nice. I like the softness of the background and how bright it is. Do you have any more or similar where the subject isn't as posed, maybe looser or more candid? Thanks so much, Joel
9 years ago - Lichtblick - thanks for the photo of the couple eating salad outside (53f57f92499fc2ca4dcfa271). This is very close to what we are looking for. But do you have one just like it without the waiters hand and basket in the frame? Thanks, Joel
9 years ago - davidzw - thanks for the photo of the man caring vegetables in a box (53f51fa6499fc29c39cfa271). I like it but do you have any more similar where the subject isn't as posed, maybe more candid or even just looking away from the camera? Thanks, Joel
9 years ago - JoeBaxter - thanks for 53fe01355422250d28e53a1b. Is the background stormy or ways the original background blurred or softened in Photoshop? -Joel
9 years ago - jp3 - thanks, we'll consider it. -Joel
9 years ago - andjelagrozdanic, this is a lovely photo (53fccfbc5422252474e53a1b). Do you have any similar that aren't as posed, more candid or looking away? Also, is 53bcfc01107b751b18482830 available? Thanks, Joel
9 years ago - Joel, I found a couple more shots. I hope these help.
9 years ago - I submitted an image of a man driving an orange ATV on the beach. Does the "desaturation" look and feel match what you are looking for? (In your brief, you said "slightly desaturated".)
9 years ago - Joel, I would love to help! Let me look through the raw. I can recreate if needed.
9 years ago - Joel, thank you for the feedback. I'll see if I can get any other photos that could be of use for you.
9 years ago - Thank you for the nominations Joel, I uploaded 2 more images, one running and one mountain biking.
9 years ago - Thanks for the nomination!!
9 years ago - To John Pope - do you have anything else similar to your image ID:53b2fbeae66891a96a12e949? Or can you shoot it? What would the $ be? I love the back lighting and rustic window but need the subject less posed and more candid. Looking for everyday life style but with soft bright back lighting. -Joel
9 years ago - To EliteSnapPhotography - Also, keep in mind that the environment needs to look like it could be in North Carolina, even if it technically is not. We have a lot of trees here. West side of state has hills/small mountains and the East has the beach and ocean. -Joel
9 years ago - To EliteSnapPhotography - I also see your kayaker photo. The lighting is very important. We're looking for a lot of bright back light. But the people subjects still need to be noticeable and not just dark silhouettes. -Joel
9 years ago - To EliteSnapPhotography - thanks for your submission and question. I see your cyclist photos. To answer you, I'll need to post a couple comments to get it all in. -Joel
9 years ago - Thank you very much for the nomination Joel.
9 years ago - Joel, I just submitted a photo for your request and was just wondering if it fits the type of photos you are looking for so as to get an idea of what exactly you want. Hope I can help find what you are looking for!
9 years ago - Hi Joel - yes he's wearing a helmet - always! :)
9 years ago - Please read the brief as I've tried to be as specific as possible. If you have questions about what we are looking for, please post a comment and I will try to clarify. Thanks
9 years ago - I have clicked hide on the ones that don't match the details on our brief or don't fit our needs. Those nominated are more in the vain but may not be spot on.
9 years ago - @ublita - is the man riding the bike in the woods wearing a helmet? Thanks
9 years ago - @jp3 - Your welcome! I love the lighting techniques you use in your people shots. Its what we are looking for.
9 years ago - Thank you for the invite!
