Like my usual shoots, I arrived slightly earlier and Jia Wang apologized to me just because he went to the washroom - he reached the place even earlier than me. I wasn't surprised over his politeness because he sounded nice and sincere over our online discussion.

It wasn't the best day for shoot under the clear sky despite meeting for the shoot at as early as 7am. I brought an extra 75 inches reflective umbrella along, which I mistook it as my 60 inches brolly, and it became useful for my assistant to hold and block the direct sunlight from hitting Jia Wang's face. Another advantage of having an assistant around was getting extra ideas.

Doing the shoot was like attending a performance, except that I didn't have to pay entrance fee for the best position (nearest to stage) and that I could give instructions to the performer. Although I had worked with other yogis before, Jia Wang's yoga moves were much more impressive with the level of difficulty.

The clear sky posed great challenges to the shoot. At times, my 600-watt strobe was unable to overcome it. Thus, we had some limitation to choices of spots around the place. Moreover, I tried hard not to use the exact spots and angles that were already inside my other albums. At times, we also had to face "photobombs" and I was amazed with the number of passers-by in the early morning.

Since I knew we would be moving around the location a lot, I tried to keep my lighting very simple. With a single artificial light, I tried hard to bring down the ambient light to avoid the sky from being overexposed and losing details, but also keeping Jia Wang properly lighted.

I was thankful because Jia Wang cooperated very well. For some of the moves, he demonstrated them to exhaust himself further more for me to picture it clearly, so that I could find the camera angle and position to place my lighting before the actual shoot. I was also thankful that he was willing to try things. He also tolerated it when my assistant and I tried to bully each other.

It was a good morning working with great people. Since it was an early morning shoot, I didn't sleep at all. I was sick and the exhaustion from the shoot worsened it.
