macau hotel tour - esession of janice and anson 4

Happy Chinese New Year. This is my 1st post after CNY.

After the birth of mui mui, these few days are very very tired. Not enough sleep, lots of home/baby tasks, non-stop photo editing … … Lucky that mui mui was born during the wedding low season (of course, it ‘s planned), or I don’t know how to handle at all.

This is the e-session of janice and anson – the last assignment just before CNY. My 2nd time to have e-session in Macau. Is it a coincidence? Janice also prefers taking hotel indoor photos to outdoor locations, so, other than the 主教山小堂 Chapel on Penha Hill,  we didn’t go to any Macau scenic locations.

I referred this e-session as macau hotel tour because we had arranged to shoot in all the new hotels – four seasons, MGM, Venetian … …

makeup artist: cherry from Makeup Rainbow (don’t miss to go to her blog to see the behind the scene photos from her)

four seasons at night. Love this shot !!! Thanks janice ‘s patience for us, it was so cold and it took some time for us to set up the lightings. There ‘re a total of 4 lights. 3 of them for the umbrellas behind janice and another one for janice herself.

our 3rd stop – the 主教山小堂 Chapel on Penha Hill. We arrived there at around 1700h, we thought it was closed at 1900, so we relaxed and the MUA did some make up for Janice again. As soon as we started shooting at 1725, security asked us to leave and the chapel was going to close at 1730. OMG …. ….. we only had 5 min to finish the following two shots …. ….

    The photos are perfect, may I ask….
    1. How many days is it required to take those photos? 1 days only?
    2. The make up and dresses are perfect as well, may I know the source?

    Thanks a lot!

    Great shots(again and again). Your lighting technique is great.
    Do you need to seek approval for shooting in the hotels?

  24. hi! Simon! 我是當天的化妝師Cherry呀! 想不到是blog友通知我, 那輯相在你的website. 看來你有很多fans呢!

    出來的效果很美啊! 老實說, 我跟了那麼多攝影師, 你當日帶的燈真的多到我難以置信, 我真的很佩服你的專業精神, 當天最辛苦的是你, 因實在花了很多時間才有那麼多美美的相, 而你又要一直拿著那麼重的相機及器材, 你的專業及相片質素真的很讚! 令我很感動呢! 因那天我已累到不能動了, 你還在池邊影相, 實在太勁了! ^^
