Studio Life

Sand colour

This time, it was my intention to make the model's skin tone look like the colour of sand by the ocean. I wanted to create a dry and worn out feeling while remaining edgy and fashionable.
I still need to figure out a way to lessen the information in the mid range colour tones so that the image looks more graphical. Nevertheless, I am grateful to have been able to try out this new method thanks to great team work by Sher (MUA), Uno (Hair), and Michelle (Stylist).

HNY + First Beauty Session

The other day, we had an opportunity to set up a beauty editorial with the talented makeup artist Sherlyn Torres. For this session, I tried a couple of gobos in my studio experimenting with what type of light shape I could make. I used a relatively hard light to preserve the edge nicely, and tried various objects such as duct tape and table placemats.

Here's the photo created with light shaped from duct tape :)

Recent work

The other day, I worked with Caitlyn (Elite Models). She was only 16 and at the same time was very humble, modest and hardworking. I respect people like her who have a great work ethic and upbeat personality no matter what their age is.
Also, it was great to work with Ronnie at the first time. She was the most powerful and funny woman I've met these days. She created a nice mood and atmosphere.
Of course, always thanks to Michelle Davis for the awesome styling job.

Here's a photo from the session with Caitlyn (Elite Models)

Defined Edge

The other day, I had the opportunity to set up a men's fashion shoot with William (Elite Models). I usually focus on creating a soft lighting set up to complement the female models beautifully, so It was really enjoyable this time to be able to add some drama in the lighting. The harsh shadows pulled out his bold facial structure :)

Here's my favourite shot from the session. Please visit my gallery page to view the rest of the photos.
