A Hazy Shade of Winter

Yet another snowstorm in the South and the subsequent icy roads that caused so much havoc this past week…bad for travel, but good for spur of the moment photos.

Minjee

Model: Minjee MUA/Stylist: Nhi Notes:¬† I wonder if all the girls out there realize that most guys (including myself) prefer it when you ladies are just normal, without much makeup.¬† We like you in t-shirts and jeans, scars and all…¬† Granted, the first images are beauty shots for a specific portfolio purpose, but if it […]

Pauline

Model: Pauline MUA / Hair: Nhi Notes: I tend to shoot with a different style or theme than the last one.¬† Just a way to keep from getting bored, and also use the gear that was just sitting on the shelf.¬† People only see the end results, and not the general flow of the evening, […]

Ring Light

Model: Frannie MUA / Hair: Nhi Lighting Assistance¬†and Props: BRC and PT I draw, I take photos, I write about it.¬† Thanks to the team for all the help.¬† Thanks to BRC for letting me take¬†his ABR800 ring light out for a test drive.¬† It definitely produces some¬†blinding light.¬† Even shooting through its “portal” has […]

MUA and Hair: Nhi Model: Christina, Miss Vietnam Georgia 2010 Location: My front yard ūüôā Technical Notes: All primes on this one, that is, lenses with a fixed focal length.¬† 50mm, 85mm, and 105mm.¬† Have a hard time deciding which one is my favorite for portraiture, so I just use them all.

Kennesaw Photo Meetup

Notes: …two cameras as usual, one existing light, and one strobist setup¬†(off camera speedlight), both good at different things, both with lots of potential, both requiring a different way of seeing.¬† In the end it is still about recognizing the quality of light, if it should be added (as in using a car head light) […]

Sawatdee

Notes: …cold wet rain actually made for the best photos of the day.¬† Wet pavement always enhances out of focus streetlights that¬†add to¬†the dreamy bokeh.¬† I like doing inside strobist shots (since there’s music and heat), but¬†it’s¬†never¬†replacing environment shots with just one camera and a lens.¬† In the time it takes to fill up my […]

Kennesaw Photo Meetup

Notes: Strobist¬†shots and photos taken with just¬†the modeling light glow¬†from the big studio strobes. f/1.4 is 1.4 regardless of make or model. X-processed some of the images to mimic the color cast of old film that I like. Nikon+Canon+Digital Photo Pro+Nikon Capture NX+Photoshop=low res .jpg for everyone to view.¬† Hey, that’s photography these days. ūüôā

ATL Model Meetup

  ¬† Technical Notes: Nikon MF 50mm f/1.4 Ai-S on a Canon body.¬† Focus ring is nice and smooth, and the glass definitely has¬†the vintage look from that era.¬† Bokeh is quite harsh and somewhat distracting compared to the newer lenses,¬†and the lens aberrations can’t be fixed¬†with the Canon software, but get¬†over it, it’s digital […]
