Shooting A Skipping Flirt!

Wingz invited me for a photo shoot with the skirt flipper and here we go!

All pictures can be clicked on, for larger versions, unless otherwise specified.

135mm F2.2. Jess insists that she is not your typical flower-sniffing model!

I really like that she has all the poses up her sleeve; in a way, I felt kind of spoiled because I didn’t have to tell her how to pose, and she always seems to know which camera to look at! Well trained, Jess! *pat*

Bukit Jalil Park is very photogenic, with lots of interesting backgrounds and themes to choose from. I used a +2 EV exposure from RAW to get her exposed properly while overlaying it on the 0 EV shot.

Also 135mm F2.2 for you bokeh lovers out there.

This is the Malaysia house. For some reason, I really really like the wooden overhanging motif.

Waiting for her lover across the bridge. 2 exposures from one RAW file merged.

Again, 2 exposures from one RAW – unless otherwise specified the JPG versions were used!

I saw this angle and I knew I had to have it! Unfortunately I forgot to include the little arch in the back in later pictures…

Flash from front left, with her head tilted back enough to let some sunlight make her hair glow.

135mm F5.6, with flashes coming from left and right.

Again, left-and-right flash – thanks Kenny for being our voice-activated light stand!

Jess, you should’ve joined us for a hearty, filling lunch…

Here is the difference between a long-range shot at 135mm F7.1…

…and a shot at 35mm 7.1. You can tell where the flash is!

A merge of two pictures to show before-falsies and after-falsies! (No large version of this.)

135mm F1.8 with an APS-C sized crop.

Cloned out a tree in the top-left for this one.

The Peleng 8mm F3.5 circular fisheye makes itself convenient for group pictures. Shot at F16, with 2 exposures from one RAW.

Left to right: JasonMumbles, The Wonder, Wingz, Kenny and Jess!

    a@ron, thanks!

    Jason: Thanks! Come to think of it, the bridge and hole in the wall are aligned in such a way that whether the sun is east or west it will still cast an interesting shadow.

    Interesting composition especially for the ones with the shadow. Darn, why didn’t I notice it.

    Not bad, it’s tough shooting portraits eh.

    But yeah first time I’ve seen you shooting a proper portraiture session I think.

    Anyway I don’t think that’s classified as HDR, generally it’d be called DRI (Dynamic Range Increase).

    buttercup: No, I really wanted to know what 2 plus 3 was! 😀 Thanks yo.

    jessbabe: Thanks babe! Falsie power!

    Jason: I’ll email everybody. 😀

    KJ: Ah Wingz yang panggil nanti tak muat!

    hOcmun: Yes, I’d call it HDR because that’s what HDR truly is but then people would get confused.

    Wingz: Coming soon!

    ShaolinTiger: Thanks! Oh well, I’ll call it whatever to avoid it being confused with some high-radius halo-ey gimmicky stuff.
