A Look Inside: My Office


10 Jul

I was messing around with my flash last night, taking some photos around the house after spending the day painting a couple of rooms. I shot this image of my home office with my Canon 7D and 10-22mm super wide-angle lens. There’s about five different shots in here to get the lighting how I wanted it; all melded together in Photoshop.

The guitars pictured are Ibanez RGA121 Prestige, Ibanez MMM1, Ibanez TC420 Talman and ESP LTD V500. The amplifier is a highly modded Crate Vintage Club VC50212 tube model.

This is where I spend most of my day writing, designing or working pics. The desk faces a large window that unfortunately faces a high Colorbond fence. We’ve plented a bunch of Murraya hedge plants outside the window that should grow to cover the fence and look much nicer.

Painting with Light: Ben’s Guitars


17 Jun

Here’s an example of my work, using only a single LED torch as a light source. I lit each guitar individually before importing them into Photoshop and pasting all the different images together into one, perfectly lit image.

There’s actually one guitar missing, which is an Ibanez RGT42FX; currently getting some pickups changed.

Shown here is: ESP LTD SC607 7-string, ESP LTD V500, Ibanez RGA121 Prestige, Ibanez MTM1, Ibanez GR320 Ghostrider, Ibanez TC420 Talman and a Fender Strat copy that has been ‘Frankensteined’.
