Conceptual Photoshoot with Rachel Liew - Christmas
This was a simple Christmas shoot that we managed to squeeze into our packed schedules.
My original idea was to use the shaft to create different creative styles but the first look was too challenging and tiring for us to try more. We played with a few angles and we also paid attention to the body gesture and expression in order to have more choices.
The setting up of the makeshift studio took away half of my energy. I started fixing up the first softbox fast and the speed decreased consistently. Eventually, I took nearly two hours in total to fix up the four softboxes, four lighting, backdrop, including shifting of the furniture and sweeping the floor.
The most comforting thing was when Rachel reached the place, she acknowledged my effort after seeing the setup. This is because, from my experience, most people don't see the effort behind the actual photography scene.
Apart from appreciating my effort, Rachel was amazed that I was able to produce my existing work within a small area. Nevertheless, there's a big limitation to the positioning of my lighting.
