For the session I decided to go with strong high contrast light. When using a flash, I didn’t attach a diffuser. Partly because of the dreary conditions and partly because of my first intention. The show takes place in Tokyo, often … Continue reading

Local Photographer Group Meetup

There was a local photographers meetup that I attended recently. A generous member of the Facebook group offered up a place and had a bonfire setup. Here are some highlight photos: It looks like my camera (Pentax K-5) and lens (FA 31mm f1.8) combo were having front focusing issues throughout the event. The camera body was sent away for two rounds of warranty service a while back and I didn’t … Continue reading

It’s quite cold … Continue reading

Photoshoot: Family Of Parents and Young Child Outdoors

I was recently asked by a friend of my sister to take some photos of her family. They were not interested in the classic posed portrait studio fair as they wanted photos that felt more natural. I was happy to oblige. Overall the session went well. The lights was overcast, but that was a good thing as lighting was diffuse. The big negative of session was the wind, which caused … Continue reading
