yuqin jurong park test shot part ii

2nd Part of Yuqin’s Test Shoot. It was dull grey skies as it has been raining a lot lately. I used a gold reflector to bring in some of that warm dawn-like quality light back onto her face.

Yuqin Jurong Park Test Shot Part I

Thanks Yuqin. This was a test shot done over the weekend for a new face at Jurong Park. Sunset behind the frangipani tree and an SB-600 on the camera left that the model held. One more good shot from this shoot. I’ll put that up another day.

NUS Mochtar Riady Building

I was walking out of school when I notice that the new business building is really taking shape and looking nice. I noticed the beautiful skies that afternoon and how the building was designed to reflect the skyscape. It’s interesting how even architects have to borrow the glory of Almighty’s creation to cloth their designs with splendour.

Mia Studio

I’ve been testing out Lightroom 3.0 Beta. One of the new features is watermark. Kind of sad it took so long to implement it. So I quickly did up a PNG file for this watermark. There are still some limitations to this.

Anyway, I like this shot of Mia very much.

These beautiful gates are symbolic of being "transported" into the spiritual realm when one goes through them to enter the temple. It’s kind of scary if you think about it…

A studio fashion shot I did quite a while back while learning studio strobes and all.
Personally I love her hair and how the light falls on her hair most. This was shot with a Canon 20D, 85mm f1.4 Lens. I’ll hold back on posting the rest for now.

There are bright sparks out there, that would benefit from a little hand of help.

I love my starbucks mug. Though I don’t drink coffee. Photo was taken with a flash behind the mug and some black base. This was shot with White Balance on Cool White Fluorescent.
