The Guardian II

Product Photography by Chiat Hau Photography (阿形金剛力士)

Looking at my wardrobe. Looks like I miss him out. One of the temple guardian that I bought from the Japan. It is called the 阿形. Not sure if you all still remember the first one that I took previously. Anyway since I have used a cooler tone for the 1st take, I decided to use a warmer tone for this shoot. Something warmer and also give a sense of danger. (Don't get close to me dude... type of feeling)

This round, started with a light underneath the subject. I have separated the subject with the a bare speed light attached with a red gel via a small chair. and then another speed light attached with a CTO on the left with a soft box. In order to get the super orangy that I wanted, I have set the white balance to a higher range. (I think I set it at 5000K for this shoot). and here we go our photo of the day. - 阿形金剛力士 in large. :)

Alright, that's all for tonight posting. I will go and get some rest and do some reading now. Signing off.... and hope that you all will have a great evening ahead. ;)
