Test \\ Ken

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 :)

Test \\ Lighting

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!
