Product photography for BSA

BSA are a Birmingham company who have been trading for 150 years.
They have recently updated their website and marketing material and I was asked to provide product photography for the air rifle range.
Working closely with the art director, we managed to get all the guns photographed in their factory, without the need to take them off site.

New Mac Pro 2013 Quad 3.7ghz D300

Just taken delivery of my new 2013 Mac Pro.

Specification is quad core 3.7 with Dual AMD FirePro D300 graphics cards, 256GB PCIe-based flash storage and 32gb 1866MHz DDR3 ECC memory which will replace my mid 2010 Mac Pro upgraded to a GTX 570 graphics card/16GB RAM/SSD boot drive.
My library has been moved to a CalDigit T3 external Thunderbolt drive configured in Raid 1, the 3rd drive I’ll be using to store my RAW files on. This replaces the 2 internal hard drives I use in my old Mac Pro, nice thing I like about the CalDigit is that you can use it in a combination of Raid, Raid+JBOD or JBOD.
Master library as before is stored on a Drobo S, as well as another drive stored off site.

Out of the thousands of tests, Geekbenk, Ciniebench, Barefeats to mention a few, I haven’t seen many that use real world applications aimed at working photographers, there are lots of mentions of iPhoto, but I don’t know of any photographers who use it professionally.

First test is seeing how much speed increase I get using my primary RAW processor, Capture One.


image

Using Capture One version 7.2, the speed increases are welcome, although not unexpected when comparing technology which is over 4 years old.
I understand, from Phase One, that Capture One is currently been updated to take full/better use of the D300 graphics cards and to fix a few bugs with the new Mac Pro. I’ve had a few random files come out purple/green when using Open CL on Auto.
The difference the GPU makes is remarkable and I’m looking forward to see how much time is saved with the next version of Capture One.

Next test will be panorama stitching, followed by lens correction and resizing in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
Worth mentioning that after I installed Photoshop I had an old problem come back where Bridge wouldn’t load start up scripts, this was easily solved by renaming my external drive, it was called library and Bridge was looking for them in there, not in my user library where the startup scripts are saved.

Update 10th March 2014

Stitching 11x9mb Jpegs in Photoshop CS6.
This is a feature I use most weeks, CS6 does a really good job of stitching files together, the image below was taken last week at a corporate event in Wales, 11 files were stitched together.


image

image

The 2013 mac pro is 26 seconds faster, if I ever update to Photoshop CC (not likely) then I would expect the stitching to be even quicker, as newer versions become more optimised for dual GPU’s.

Update 13th March 2014

Final set of tests using Photoshop CS6, lens correction and contact sheet tools.
Lens correction using built in profile for Canon 24mm F2.8 II and contact sheets were processed to A4 300dpi.


image

Lens correction was 24 seconds quicker and contact sheets were 34 seconds quicker, quite a good saving when I’ll be processing 600+ files.

103 Colmore Row, Birmingham.

In 2006 I was asked by GVA Grimley to photograph the interior of 103 Colmore Row in Birmingham or as it used to be known, National Westminster House.
The John Madin designed building compliments his other brutalist designs in Birmingham, the gold ceilings and textured walls look like they weren’t updated since the building opened in 1976.
A planning application has been approved to demolish the original building with a new development, until then it remains an interesting example of Brutalist architecture.
