A friend hooked me up with a large umbrella to soften up the light on my flash. I chose a larger size not realizing how much it is to handle when you’re outside and the wind is hitting you or even fitting this in doors. I really should start bringing assistants out or perhaps an extra 40 lbs worth of sandbags could do the trick, this could be a serious workout all by myself.
This time around @genkidenki hung out while I played around with the settings. The buildings added a bit of pizzazz to the image with all the colors they had to offer.
Through the mysterious series of tubes called the Internet, I have managed to befriend a lovely girl on social media and finally had the chance to meet with her in person. more “Windy Session with Leep0ng”
In an attempt to work with some extra lighting, I asked a friend to join a shoot so I could play with a reflector. I don’t often have anyone to hold things for me, so this was a different experience. more “What do I do with an asssistant? Featuring Sachi”
I managed to get a small gig shooting some products for a local skate brand. All Day I Dream About Pizza had a few shirts and pins to display. This was the first time I got to shoot products for someone and the general theme kind of lined up with how I normally shoot anyway. more “All Day I Dream About Pizza”
As much as I enjoy going outside to shoot that sunset, I feel the need to get more comfortable in the house. I’m not exactly located in a spot for friends to drop by easily so practicing at home with non cat models has been rare. Julia allowed me to practice at her place one morning and we turned out some neat shots. more “Finding that Window light with JuliaTonight”
I had this post on hold for who knows how long, I was hoping to get the audio for my walk out, but it’s not going smoothly. I’m at the point where I would just like to put out a few photos from this shoot so here I am. Valentine brought along her twin sister as we walked around several spots, we moved from Chinatown to all sides of Kakaako. It was a pretty eventful start due to the run ins with some crack heads. It calmed down and we managed to finish up the rest of the shoot.
Eventually, I’ll have the video ready for this shoot, but don’t hold your breath. I’m attempting to get Valentine to do the audio with me, she’s now living in Korea so we will see how that goes.
