I’m sorry, but you beautiful readers will have to endure yet another narcissistic post. Here are before and after pictures of the photos taken from Friday night while I was hanging out at Loco Studio. The first two pictures were shot by Jay while the last is shot by Kabir. All editing were done by me. (Guys, if I haven’t mention this, click the thumbnails for a larger view of the pictures).
What did you do on Friday night?
I was at Loco studio (thanks Kabir) not as the photographer but the model-wannabe. Kabir wanted to test out his new lighting set and I came in full force bringing in two dresses and my make-up kit. Under Jay’s direction, it took quite a bit to get the lighting right. I guess that’s the problem that you’ll be faced with when you have the choice of 3 strobes to play with – the power of each strobe, the position, etc. As for me, I had always been comfortable with just one-umbrella as my setup – simple and easy. It wasn’t until recently did I realize the power of an extra hair-light on a portrait. It gives that extra ooomph – like coffee with low-fat milk? Just nice to drink without the added calories? Gosh I’m bad at explaining.. especially when it is 5 in the morning.
Credits goes to Jay for the shot below.
