Portraits of Ming Yan

I was quiet apprehensive on this shoot actually. Probably because it was at 7am in the morning and I did not had much sleep, fearing that I would not be able to wake up in time. But thankfully I was able to wake up on time and for the few rare occasions reach the destination on time. 

The session was organized by Desmond Ong aka Boo Boo Photos. Attended by myself and Alvin Jong. And our talented young lady for the day was Miss Ming Yan

For the most part, I normally shoot portraits with the 17-55 and 80-200 lens. While I do have the 50mm lens I barely use it. But just to test out the bokehlicious f1.4 lens I decided to try and use it more. It was the first time I was working with Ming Yan, who turned out to be a really fun and bubbly girl. Who does not mind trying new things. Good stuff. 

Anyways here are some of the shots which I liked.

1) I was shooting thru some leaves, the AF seeked for about split second before finding focus.2) Bokeh-licious background3) Love this one, calmness 4) Leaving...Now lets get some color into the pictures! Her second outfit was a gorgeous purple dress. Must show the color.

5) Purposely to show the bokeh power of f/1.4 lens6) Found a gorgeous green background xD7) Lucky shot, Ming Yan was on the phone, I just put my camera low tilted it a bit and fired 2 shots. Both were in focus at the right spot :)8) Ming Yan strumming her sorrows away xD9) I think this is worthy of some sort of CD cover hehe =P10) Took me a while to get this shot, I was shooting thru a small space. Could not even aim properly.Eventho I did not have enough sleep and was hungry. I knew I had some thing different in my memory card. Different from my usual photos. I guess the lens does really make difference. f/2.8 vs f/1.4. 50mm is not my cup of tea but its something I would use more from now onwards. Maybe a 85mm in the horizon?

Thanks Desmond, Alvin and Ming Yan for a good session!
