This was probably the most “patriotic model” shooting event ever organized in Malaysia, because we had invited Weena Marcus for a National Day themed shoot! I had actually prepared three national flags of different sizes (small, medium, and large), but having a model holding a flag didn’t work well, so we spent most of our time taking casual shoot instead… haha. Hibiscus Garden was really a weird place, because you could’t find many hibiscus flowers here… But the place was good enough for photoshoot, at least no guard came to interrupt us:)
Another shooting session with Sonia Ng at an abandoned house near KLCC on Sunday. The photos taken on Sunday were better than those on Saturday, because the lighting at the abandoned house is more interesting. I had to thank CK Ng for “sponsoring” his newly bought Cambodian scarf and fan as props, which made the photos look a lot better!
Second time having an outdoor model shooting event at Bukit Nanas. The place is an excellent place for photoshoot, because very few people come here, and we won’t be interrupted. However, this location can also be very challenging for photographers, because the lighting inside a forest is pretty dark (make sure your camera has high ISO…), and there are lots of mosquitoes waiting to suck some fresh blood… The model is Sonia Ng, a very beautiful and experienced free-lance model. She is extremely good at doing elegant poses. And her tanned skin looks superb when the light is reflected on it^^
My first attempt at organizing a model shooting event for beginners in portraiture photography. The event’s response was okay, but some of the participants didn’t even know that the event was for beginners…XD The model, Christabella Low, was a very young and beautiful part-time model (only 16!). She had done several outdoor model shoots before this event. I hope this event was helpful for both photographers and the model in gaining more experience in model shoot.
This is by far the most special outdoor model shoot I’ve ever organized with a Vampire theme! Special thank goes to Leong, who contributed brilliant ideas for the location and props. I also have to thank Chin Hong for supporting many of my events and providing me the inspiration to tone down the model’s skin color to create the vampire feel!
Chiah Yee is a young and cute high school student. This shoot was done at FRIM, because the model lives at Kepong. The view at FRIM is very good. You can find a small river and lots of big trees inside the forest. The only problem is that the place is too big. It would take you about half an hour to reach the river place from the entrance by walking… many thanks to Chiah Yee for giving me this valuable opportunity to gain more experience in portraiture shoot!
Had organized a model shooting event for Annie Law last Saturday. The weather on that day wasn’t very good. It rained for about 5 minutes; luckily, the sun came out after that. Titiwangsa Park is not a very beautiful park, but there are still a few places that are quite nice for photoshoot, such as the playground area and the tunnel full of plants.
I went to PC Fair 2010 (II) on Friday instead of weekends to avoid the crowd. To my surprise, the exhibition hall was already quite packed with people on Friday. I couldn’t imagine how crowded it would be on Saturday and Sunday! Many showgirls were the same as PC Fair 2010 (I), but you could still find a few hot and pretty new faces. Enjoy the pictures!
Second time taking photos of Emma, but first time organizing a model shooting event for her. At first sight, you might think that Emma is a foreigner. Actually, she is an Eurasian (Chinese and English mix) grew up in Malaysia! She can speak fluent English, Chinese, and Malay like any ordinary Malaysian Chinese:D Eight photographers had joined the shoot on Saturday. I believe everyone was satisfied with Emma’s performance, because her posing was very natural and professional!
Helen is Joanne‘s sister. She is as lovely as Joanne, especially her very sweet smile^^ She is currently a free lance model and showgirl. You can see them quite often at exhibitions. Hope that I can organize an event for both of them one day! Don’t forget to leave me your valuable comments or help rate this post:D
Full House has now become the “sacred place” for model shooting enthusiasts like me:) This place is really excellent for photoshoot, since the whole building is white with beautiful interior design. Currently, Full House has three outlets. I believe the biggest one is at Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, which is really a “Full House” that occupies a whole bangalow! What’s more, you can take photos wherever you like, no one will come and kacau you (as long as you order a drink or a small cake I guess…)!
