Mia alternative

TNH_060707_0458 bw



When I first got back from Chicago, Mia, an actress, wanted to do some head shots and I wanted to do some test shots. So here we are. Sometimes I find the 2x3 format of digital too long for portraits. I have found ways to make it work sometimes. Sometimes, like this time, it is better to crop the image to 4x5.

Rajasthan Images


Just a note that I have put some of my Rajasthan photos onto my Flickr site. I have applied the camera calibrations to the images on the Flickr site and they do look much better.

Kheng Ju

Kheng Ju is a wonderful portrait photographer who uses an 8x10 camera to shoot polaroids. The only photographer in Singapore I know who does this. This portrait was shot in her house and her dog is named Max.

I took this potrait on my 5D. I also shot off a few frames of black and white and colour slide on my 4x5 camera. I will post a comparative photo as soon as I can. The polaroids from the camera got me real excited. Focussing issues on the 5D caused me a lot of grief.

Mark Tay came visited the studio the night before I shoot for the Breast Feeding Mother's support group. I got a few shots off to show him what I was doing.

Miss Pryde's Response II

Miss Pryde's preferred portrait.

My take on it.

Miss Pryde's Response

My taste does not always agree with my model's. Miss Pryde's preferred photo over my choice. I nearly trashed this actually.

Photographer Entangled

Ok. The response to the texture on Kiampa's portrait on pondmusings was not great. I have gone back to a simpler black border.
