Tatty looks very cool here! - Warming up in progress ;D

This has been a long discussed project with Yew Tat (aka Tatty) since last year when I see the Happy Fun Fair near the QB mall. Too bad the schedule and timing is pretty bad (aka both of our schedule is hardly match) last year and we can't really complete the whole thing as scheduled. :"P Anyway since the Happy Fun Park is here again this year. It reminds me to follow up with Tatty just to complete the whole location lighting project again this round. :") (Glad that Tatty still remember it and accepted the role as the model for this shootout session). :")

More photos after the jump...

Started with only Tatty and Fiona (as our shootout makeup artist) and after that DC and Bart has joined in volunteering to be the assistance for the whole session. I am really really glad and feel grateful that they have joined in for the whole shooting. With all of them around it has make the whole shooting session a fun, enjoy and easy one (Thanks again DC and Bart for coming) :")

The leap of faith

Started out the whole lighting setup with just one light while getting Tatty to warm up as our model (at one of the small ferris wheel in the park). :") Guess he is still not very comfortable doing so when things get started. Until everything has been warmed up properly. I started to integrated in my second light and I decided to go for a red gel here since I think it pretty much (or contrasty) with the blue sky that we have that day. As well as giving a feel of danger (on our 2nd shooting location).
