It has been a great week so far. Getting some good rest after a week of hard work. I am glad that I manage to close most of the Chinese New Year shopping and get ready for the celebration. :) (Looks like the CNY is just few weeks ahead from now). Watch The Tourist with LB as well. Not a bad show I will saw, the show added a few twist where you could only know the story at the end of the show. (So if you are a fans for Angelina Jolie and Johnny Deep, don't miss this movie ya.) ;)

It has been a while I didn't make any strobe shoot, so..., this will be the 1st one for year 2011 and I think I should kick start some of my project real soon :") And for our photo of the day, trying to get some adventure shoot here, lurking around in a house, searching for truth? Anyway, this is just some lowlight setup shoot here. Main light on the subject is the blue gel-ed SB800 with full power on a gridded beauty dish distance at 3 feet from the subject. And the background has been lighted with a red gel-ed 580EXII on a reflective umbrella. There should be a spoky "object" at the back of the subject, but too bad, the trigger just didn't triggered well behind obstacles (the wall). (Deng..., I guess is time to look into a better trigger now).

I think that's all for this evening. Planned to go and watch some Taiwanese show with LB later. :) I hope that you all had a great weekend as well as a great Sunday evening as well. Signing off... ;)


  1. This one didn't portray the spookiness :P In fact, I thought you're doing a modelling pose. :P

  2. Opps...:"P too bad then. Bet will need to do better next round then. Thanks for the inputs ya B&G. ;)

  3. 期待你买了新的 trigger 之后再尝试一次 :P

  4. 好好。。。没问题,不过,还在等待Trigger的release。希望可以找一些拿到,就可以试一试了。:)
