Kibas Hanneke!

Tiring tiring Sunday. *faints*

Vic @ Lake Garden

Finally had my camera clicking again. After all the gigs these past few weeks its good to be returning back to my favorite disicpline – portraitures. The session was held last Sunday and the day began with brunch (or more like late brunch) at Vic’s place. With our tummy’s filled, we headed to the only place I could think for a portraiture session that’s nearby AND that I would know, no one would be bothering us – Lake Garden. While I don’t remember much about Lake Garden as a kid but I did grew up going to Lake Club for swimming. I’m no longer a member there but I do head there some time for lunch with colleagues – p/s: they have delicious banana fritters!

So I picked a spot which would turn out to be the only spot for the day which was in a shade, surrounded by big trees, blanketed my dried leaves and rather comfy I would say. As I attempt to set up my umbrella set, I realized that the umbrella adapter which I had borrowed from Mado was too small for the umbrella set that I had. Oh well, it was natural light all the way then.

My first few shots were in color. *Nope*… just didn’t had the mood for it. Switched to monochrome…ah…much much better. A reader questioned, isn’t it better to first shoot in color and then only convert it to B&W later? Yep, that’s definitely right. But the only reason I was shooting monochrome right from the camera was due to sheer laziness of editing it later on. lol. By right, I should be shooting in Raw format and then converting it during post-processing. Firstly, I barely shoot on Raw ever since I switched to the D300 (the files are huge compared to the D70s I had before) and secondly I find it easier to pick my photos in the format of its end result – i.e. I know I wanted the photos to be B&W and hence photo selections were much easier for me if the photos are in B&W rather than in color. Am I making any sense here? I hope so.

D700 Studio Portraiture Test

Had a chance to try out the Rashdan’s D700 at Kabir’s studio. My models of the day would be two of my friends, Waa and Isma. Lighting setup is pretty simple. I’m always inclined to shoot with one light source due to getting used to just having just one umbrella during my portrait-shooting days in the States.
