Christina and Johnny planned to have this session in April, but Christina got her ankle hurt so we had to delay until last week.
date: 23 July, 2008
locations: Wetland park, big wave beach, the Peak
As it ‘s getting more and more difficult to shoot outdoor in the summer, I started to understand why we need to have a studio, . Not only the heat, but also the overhead strong sunlight that makes your eyes uncomfortable. So, is Simon going to open a studio? … … never, I hate studio work, it ‘s so boring, I like the excitement of walking around to look for new location and good light ….. …. if you ask me to work in a studio, I ‘d rather going back to an office and becoming a businessman again.
Having said that, any way to cope with the heat? OK, stay tuned, I ‘ll share with you a few ways (with examples) tomorrow !!!!!
BTW, I opened a facebook page, please support me by becoming a fan of mine on facebook.
last location of the day – the peak. we first took a few “landscape” photos. Then I passed my Canon 1D to Johnny and let him play with Christina. The result is quite interesting. I used three flashes for lighting setup, anyone like to make some guess of the setup. You can put your guess in the comment section below … …
first stop: Wetland Park. Before we got outdoor, we took some photo inside the visitor center. Both of us like the idea as we enjoyed the air-conditioning
a nice and beautiful location
look at johnny !! I love his expression
we walked around inside the exhibition center
OK, let’s go out, I can’t describe how hot it was … … however, with their determination, we got some very nice photos
2nd stop: big wave beach. my first time to be there. We decided not to go Shek O, as it was too crowded.
One of the benefit of taking photo in summer — you got long day of day light. Even though we arrived there at 5:00pm, we still have plenty of sunlight
great man, johnny !!!
They started to get a little bit crazy !!!
Look like Johnny didn’t like it
the big revenge!!!! My camera and lens were covered with sands after these few shots!!
