Studio Upgrading Works – Cooling Day

By | Main Category | No Comments

Last Thursday night, we began to start a minor renovation to convert the corner of the studio to a small storeroom. It seems simple enough until we started to clear the corner of the things we have tucked into that corner.

We then realised that we actually tucked a lot of things in that corner. Here are all those things being moved to the centre space!

Finally we added 2 more air con units to the existing 2 units. So now our aircon is almost 50000 BTU in total. We are now can be as cold as Cold Storage!

On Sunday while most are celebrating May Day, we came to paint the walls ourselves (cost cutting measures haha)… and sweep and mop a few times over to clean the dust..

So here is the new door to the storeroom!

So now we have a neater studio, with all things properly tucked in and its a really cooling place. It is surprisingly looks more spacious too! We are glad that we have solved a few issues with the installation of additional aircon and a new storeroom.

Photographing ordinary people versus models

By | Main Category | No Comments
Was discussing with a fellow photographer friend and he said that its much tougher to shoot ordinary people than to shoot models. I agree. Shooting ordinary people is much tougher as they need to be assisted in posing and feel relaxed in front of the camera. This takes more time and, the experience harvested from the photographer, helps.
I recently shot a online catalog for a fashion house. In a commercial shoot, time is very limited and costly. Having a good model, on the other hand, saves a lot of time as they know the poses and moves. I don’t have to direct much as long as the lighting and creative brief is clear. We worked fast as there are at least 30 outfits to be worn and photographed.

I recorded a shot video on this  in my previous post here.

So if you meet a photographer that doesn’t shoot models or fashion, do appreciate his value in shooting people that aren’t models. Its tougher actually.
