Portraiture of Bibiana

At the end of February, I woke up early to meet up with Pazuzu and Foosi at ta-wan-kung for breakfast and waited for our model to arrive. The model for the session was Miss Bibiana.

^_^This was my 3rd time organizing a portrait outing with friends. Small group where everyone takes turns to take photo, and others helping out with light.


There were two location for that day, the other was my friend's new house. Sort of moved, we will get to that later. Now for some results of the 1st location which I liked. All the picture were not cropped in anyway, its out of the camera with post processing done to 'enhance' the photos.




Love the catchlight in the eyes.

Love this image, shot using the 50mm f/1.8 lens. The eyes are extremely sharp!

After that we went to my friend Clarissa's house. She just moved in before CNY 2010. Its some what furnished, so I thought it may be a good location to shoot. So we headed over here are some of my fav results xD. Really cracking the brain trying to mold the light xD

Shot with SB600 and SB800 speedlightsIt was quite interesting as normally when there are more people in the shoot we do not have much time to set up the lights. But this round we could as we took turns helping each other out. Awesomes.

Shot with one speedlight.The above shot was quite an interesting one where I squad at the side of the door and another speedlight was held by Foosi about 30 feet away outside, as I wanted to get the shadow of the grill and the door frame. 

Initially I wanted to shoot the chandelier at my friend's house dinning area. But its a bit too high so in the end I just used the walls as backdrop.

Here are some shots that were shot in the staircase. Shot with both SB600 and SB900 behind a diffuser.

We ended our shoot for the day around 3pm.
