One of my favourite ways to light the subject is 45 degrees from behind. Not only does it add liveliness without bringing attention to anything distracting on the face, but it also ends up saturating the skin tone on the face/ body due to a stop down in exposure compared to the highlight area. I found this an easy way to manage a tan skin look throughout the retouching process.

Here are some photos with lovely model Anneliese from Anitanorris models.
Thank you to my awesome teammates as always :)

Beauty Editorial Photography

I recently shot a beauty editorial story in my studio where I tested out my new toy (645 medium format film camera). The camera has auto focus and my favourite type of blur, plus the 16 images per each 120 roll is not so bad either ;) That’s pretty much the main reason I wanted to try it out.
The camera operation was smooth without any troubleshooting, so for now, I guess I will keep it!

Here’s one of the images from the session.

Thank you to everyone involved for making this one happen / kind & modest Melanie Jane (Model), and my talented teammates Windy Chiu (HMUA) and Michelle Davis (Stylist).

I would like to share a studio session I shot recently in which I used colour gels. The colour palette of the shoot was blue and yellow. We showcased these tones both in the clothing, lighting, and props to create consistency.

Here's a favourite shot from the session!

Thank you as always to my amazing teammates:

We recently did a fashion editorial shoot that was a mixture of indoors and outdoors on location.
In attempt to take an advantage of the dwindling summer weather, we shot a couple of the looks using natural light.
It was great to get such a pleasing warm tone organically from the sun.
Here's a favourite shot taken at the parking lot near my studio.

Thanks as always to my wonderful team :)

We recently had a session with Aicha (Elite Toronto) who was a very intelligent, and professional girl to work with. She was quick in grasping our concept immediately; I hope she has plenty of success in her career!

This time I set up the lighting a bit more low key in order to create a subtle hazy feeling.
I hope to deepen my experiments with underexposed portraits in the future.

Thank you as always to my awesome teammates!

We recently shot a beauty story themed "nude on nude". We used a brown monotone scheme as our color palette and tried to create a calm and mellow feeling.
I shot the following on 35mm lens.

The other day I had a photoshoot with Jo Creet (Chantale Nadeau models). We shot 4 looks in my studio and then moved onto the location for another 3 looks. There were lots of interesting discarded material surrounding the area to work with such as broken glass, rocks, bricks, and scrap pieces of wood. There was definite potential to even shoot another story there sometime in the future. 


Here's an image taken on location shot with film.
Thanks again to my awesome teammates for your time and hard work!

I recently shot a story collaborating once again with my awesome teammates, Windy Chiu and Michelle Davis. I also had the opportunity to reunite with Shelby Love, a model whom I worked with a couple of years ago.

Here's a closeup from the session where I experimented with developing film by myself for the first time. 

I'm looking forward to blogging and sharing future images I develop!
