The beauty of photography is that every shot can be unique. While I love working in Singapore, its always nice to get an afternoon to work with a model who has a look and feel that is very different to the local scene. So different that we managed to squeeze out 4 different looks!
The first shoot we did was more of a sporty look. The model wanted to hit the ground running as the sports feel was her request. See what I did there? Sports ... hit the ground running ... huh? :)
Lighting setup here was main light a silver umbrella and filled by a 3x1 softbox
For the second look we started to emphasise skin tones in a classic yet simple way. Main light was a silver umbrella except now all the way to the side. No reason things need to be complicated to get a great shot.
There was some trial and error though, I tried in from the front at first but the light was too flat and boring for me.
These pictures were also featured here on the Retouchist
Moving right along into our 3rd setup I made use of a beauty dish for the main light along with an octa fill. Strip light on the side from the back to complete the setup. I love how the light and shadows sculpts the dimensions of her face here. I'd like to think the lighting did a lot of the work here but wow she is uniquely gorgeous!
Dress up time! Last shot was a fashion shoot done in collaboration with Nathaniel from a local brand called Mash-Up. Awesome model, awesome clothing and a happy photographer!
Lighting was a magnum reflector for main light and octa for fill! Sorry my bts image sucked, I forgot to take a proper one hah.
