the runaway, found
styling: carina & audrey (another one in the bag!), models: shane & christine (thanks, guys!) and assisted by yudi.
shooting outdoors is always a challenge, but in many ways it is also more rewarding. you do your best to anticipate everything that can possibly go wrong and try to tame the variables that often seem to have a mind of their own.
sometimes, everything just seems to come together. so many things could have gone wrong during this shoot – the malaysian guard at the railway station could have raised hell; the sunset could have been unspectacular; worse still, it could have rained.
but none of those happened. the security guard was content to stay at his post. the ambient light was a beautiful mix of gold, pink and peach. the worst that happened was that we damaged a pair of heels, thankfully it wasn’t too expensive.
all the photos were shot with a 50mm f1.4. most of them were lit naturally with reflectors for fill except for the last one, where i had yudi (a fantastic assistant and photographer himself) fire a sb-800 into a gold reflector to light christine. the challenge with that shot was balancing the flash with the already awesome ambient light.
all photos were then treated in lightroom and photoshop to create the vintage look.
thanks to all who helped to make dapper a great success this semester! we have more interesting themes and concept planned for the next semester so be sure to look out for them. haters not included.
