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!

IMG_7261 (1)Main works began on Friday. We decided to build a new storeroom to house the additional aircon compressor and housekeeping things in the store.

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.

Online Shop Photoshoot at MacPherson Studio

By | Main Category | No Comments

One of the regular work that we do in the studio is catalog shoot for online shops. From small items such as gifts to large ones like Harley Davison motorbikes and king-sized beds, we have done it. We recently posted a youtube video from one of our photoshoot session. The video is shot using an Iphone and editing on Imovie, so pardon the quality ya.

Repainting the floor

By | Main Category | No Comments

MacPherson studio regularly paint out studio to ensure it is in tip top condition for your shooting. Today we are putting a new coat of paint on the floor again. It is hard work but we know its worth the effort when we see the satisfaction in the photographers that use the studio.

We usually take half a day to finish a coat of paint and a full day to dry and clear the paint smell. I guess by the time we eventually leave this place, we would have paint a think layer of paint over time.
