Thanks to Tram for wanting photos the other week! It’s so nice to have a photogenic model that is also super at doing hair and makeup! 😉 This was also a good opportunity to test some of the gear collecting dust on the shelf before I settled on one for the whole shoot. The grid […]
Tech Notes: As the title suggests, I’ve been tinkering with a lighting setup using the Mola Softlight beauty dish and the LED ceiling light panels.

Our DIY Two Way Mirror Box made from Aluminum and acrylic mirror.
We built a custom twin / double speedlight bracket for the Mola softlight, or beauty dish.
Model: Vy MUA / Hair: Nhi I posted the above image because it is an example of the test I quickly fire off when I’m shooting off camera speedlights, either Nikon CLS or manual flash for the Canon. It had been cloudy and cold all day, but for some reason the sunset tonight was this […]
Model: Anh MUA / Hair: Anh Stylist / Runner: Van Lighting Assistance: Thomas, Annie Tech Notes: First shoot with my newest lighting modifier, a Mola softlite “beauty dish.” Haven’t finished making the mounting bracket yet, but good enough to take out on a random outing.

Notes: Quick shoot a day or so before he had to go back to Laos. Thanks to KP for letting us borrow his very nice (and $$) PRS guitar for the shoot. 😎 The same brand of guitar that Carlos Santana and other famous musicians use (or get for free). Makes me think about how […]
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, […]
Notes: Almost a full day of shooting on this test run. Thanks to everyone who came out and stuck it out through the warm weather. Luckily the sakura and other trees were in bloom, and I tried to make the best out of local spots, from up the street to across town. Another camera juggling fest as well, and […]

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 […]
