Had the pleasure of photographing a spring campaign + product shots for a new, up and coming skincare line based in Asia: Yogique
Test shoot with Kenta today. It was awesome getting to photograph his extremely extensive wardrobe.
I've really only photographed him once or twice before although I've been wanting to do a proper shoot for a long time. It sounds really corny but a couple of these photos show the way he appears in my mind when I see him ( sorry, does that make sense?). That's what I love about photography, a single photo can be a love letter if you want it to be. Not saying that this is one!! Hahaha.
Overall, super-fly human being :)
Just got back from our senior trip. We drove 16 hours from Los Angeles to Portland. I only got snippits of the things we did, but I'm happy we got to do many 'firsts' together: river rafting on the White Salmon River, jumping off a bridge, biking around Portland, skiing in the summer, and many others. Oregon and Washington have some stunning views of nature. Incredible states!Read More
Nami & Sachu had a blast this weekend photographing some amazing people! After calculating, we figured out we walked 15 hours this weekend. YIKES! We are pooped, haha. Here is a snippet of the images from this weekend.Read More
Nami & Sachu got to photograph my lovely group of friends this weekend and it was amazing! It was the first time we had to photograph such a large group of people, but we had a blast doing it.Read More
Went with Dino to UCLA today for some lighting practice. It's so weird to be back on campus, but oddly refreshing. We didn't have wireless transmitters so it was odd to try and use model lamps for the lights. I'm more used to very high-light, clean portraits that are evenly lit; but we experimented with more "mood" lighting (two lights -- one from the side, one from the front) that shown on only a part of her face. Overall, it was a nice experiment and I always have a lovely time with Dino :)
I also realize that my portfolio is almost completely built on pictures of her and my sister.. I need to find new models soon... Anyone out there who wants to collab, let me know!
