Re: Sun lines effect

so i think i found someone who is interested in Rarindra. may be you can
help my friend . my friend also want to know how Rarindra does effects
in his pictures. he has seen almost any link such as dpriew , photonet
etc etc in this respect , but he is not satisfied with theories and explanations
that are given there. he thinks all attempts to backengineer his work are
mere failures. i don't know anything about him. but i think that some of his
pictures must be composites (it is my opinion). what is your opinion. though
i like his work very much composite or not composite.

i think he takes a scene take pictures of it under varying light condition i.e
morning evening , when haze when fog and have made a huge library with
it. i think he selecets scenes with low dynamic range to allow him better
flexibility to play with shadows and highlights. and use kids from one scene
and plant them in other scene , light rays of one or more than one scene in
some other scene etc etc. there are pictures where i believe highlight and
shadows either should be dull or clipp if some of his picture are noncomposites.

irrespective of whether it is composite or not , his work i and many find
fantastic and it should be difficult if not then why so many tries and not
much progress?

I think that high contrast lighting can be very beautiful and Rarindra is a master of this dramatic effect. But I think it is enhanced post-production. So no, I do not think it is 100% "natural". With the studio lighting something similar would be achievable.

Interesting! I've seen this tutorial before, and I'm pretty sure it was before I became interested in the work of Rarindra Prakarsa. I had never put the two together, but I can see some similarity in the example. I don't know if I'll ever have the stamina to try that tutorial, but it's nice to know there is a method that might mimic Prakarsa's look. Of course, first I would need to create a photographic image that would benefit from that method of post-processing, and that would take some doing. Whether Prakarsa's work is totally in camera or some version of in camera/post processing, I am mostly satisfied to simply appreciate the beauty of the images. ... with perhaps a bit of a desire to try to mimic them...

We've had discussions here before on this subject, so it's nice to have some new theories and links.
