The pure sensation

In the workshop, I demonstrated the way to combining the continued lighting and flash lighting . Here are some samples. the ring LED light (南冠CN-R640) as the key light, and two GODOX V-860c as the ring light for the edges.

It's a great pleasure to work with the new-raising model - Angeli and fantastic MUA - Sunney Lee.  

For the distinctive looks I use the del lighting to achieve a rich colorful mixture image. The skin has been transformed as an unusual metal look, far beyond the impressions of a beauty. it's a nice way to explore the individual vision of the fashion photography and I will discuss this topic on the upcoming workshop in Taichung. 

此次非常的榮幸與Model Angeli 以及妝髮造型師 松真合作時尚作品的拍攝。運用的多彩光投射的色彩融合手法,將肌膚處理成類金屬的光澤感,彰顯甜美之外的個人風格氣質,流露出更多獨特個性。這樣的創作思維也期待在即將到來的攝影講座來剖析分享。

 The Paramount Lighting brings the clear symmetrical looks for beautiful faces.

Simply by controlling the spread of the bounce flash,  the light can be modified as the effects from the soft box.

The Rembrandt Lighting shows the dynamic energy of the picture, the beauty in the dramatic atmosphere.

Sammi's Fujifilm X-System Works

 

The album of my x-system works on Flickr :)

 

As a Taiwanese visual artist, I work in the fields of film-making and photography for the last 7 years in London. 

 

Few of my experience of Fashion Photography in my working resume:

2011-2014 Photographer,  London School of Modelling,  London, UK

Fujifilm X-System is my beloved friends in photography now after using many different camera brands. 

Very attractive traditional interface of classic camera models, and light-weight combination with high-quality opticals are the reasons for me to keep X-system by my side in work or pleasure time.

The grass turned into yellow in this season, but it's perfectly fitting the outfit and the hair. Shooting under cloudy natural light.  

 

 

 

 

 On the day the forecast shows light shower and it actually happened...in the middle of shoot. 

Although it was raining but Alice and I still got great images.

A quick preview of the two days shoot...

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 下午12.06.17

 

It's the first time I use Fujifilm X-system for main camera in an all day shoot, and I have to say that it's so much easier and enjoyable. It might be the time to say good bye to my full-frame Canon EOS-1DsMK2...  

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 下午12.07.41

 

 Using single camera system can let me focus to the elements of images and set the lights in variety styles. 

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 下午12.07.50

 

 The Fujifilm XF 56mm f1.2 provide proper defocused background which is not as great as Canon EF 85mm f1.2L but OK.

 

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 下午12.08.01

 

 

 

Certainly it's al about the form/color/tones to make the images right.

 

 

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 下午12.08.09


Also the interact with subject/model is a major factor in the portfolio shoot:)

Fashion shoot with Pooja Pradaan

Pooja Pradaan is a professional Actress/Model from India. It's a great experience to work with her while her visit in UK. The season of cherry blossom is a nice location opportunity for fashion shoot. It looks sunny but the weather was still cold! Thanks for the great team to make this happening.  Here are few previews of the shoot.

MY THREE LIGHT SET-UP

I love one light set-up for the portrait, but I prefer the three light set-up more. The simplicity is beautiful, elegance, as we can see from many classic Fashion Photography which strictly utilizes the one light method. For me I would like to bring a little depth and color into my picture, a little personal taste of my fine art background instead of the logical clarity of light. More lights mean more distractions beside the area of focus, thus it takes the experiences and the foreseeing of the composition of atheistic sensation. But I love to try all the combination, even there are many chances to fail :)


     

SHFA4715

 LDN Model: Raquel Pulle

One Light Set-Up

 

 Very clean and easy to read the subject, shows the logic of the lighting direction.

The shadows are emerged thus it's fuzzy to identify the subject and the space(background).. 

  

SHFA4714

 LDN Model: Raquel Pulle 

Three Light Set-Up

 

Add a outline kick light and background back lit, the space has been noted around the subject.

The kick lit indicates the thickness of the subject, also reveal the texture (with a harder lighting)

 

 

 

 

SHFA0427.JPG

 Another One-Light Set-Up sample

 

 

 

SHFA0426.JPG

Three-Lights Set-UP sample


Basing the same concept of delivering the shape and depth go the subject in the image.


The difficulty is to determinate the volume of the second/third light! When we check the playback on the camera on the site, it seems very subtle but become distractions on the large monitor. Nevertheless it's preferable for me to dedicate the lighting onto my fashion photography style.

Hannah Poplaws, two looks

SHFA1850_

 Fujifilm X-T1/ XF56mm f1.2R, natural light

 

Here are the two different looks with different lighting plans shooing with beautiful model - Hannah Poplaws. The natural looks applied a back-lit natural light setting to present the smooth texture of skin and soft clean transaction.

Fujifilm X-T1/ XF56mm f1.2R, three strobes.


The light setting up here provides a high-contrast aggressive visual impact of color mixture. By suing the red-gel and yellow gel on the back light and side light, the light of colors takes over the shadow on the body, stress the abstract form of gesture. With the confident and elegant movements, Hannah perform the perfect gracious beauty in this polish dress.

A stunning model - Cady Roberts in Boho looks with a little spring taste of environment for this location shoot. The reflection of the afternoon sun light  just perfectly illumines the face from shadow. The Fujifilm XF 56mm f1.2 @ f1.2 provided a proper DOF in this scene.
