So my last photoshoot post got quite a few encouragements from you guys commenting that you like the content so I'm here for another! I reckon most of you would know of my shameless pimpin endeavor last month for ORA's Smiling Contest. And my submission picture was myself cosplaying as Kyoko from Skip Beat.
Would you believe if I say this picture has not been touched up at all? (Not trying to imply I look perfect, I just feel that technically, it’s a very well taken photograph with adequate lighting and doesn’t need much touch up (as long as we look at it with eyes of kindness). Even though if I want to, there’s lotsss I can do )
Photos in this entry are all unedited (at least not by me) unless otherwise stated.
Juliana for taking time out from her schedule to shoot with me =)
The costume is comfortable and easy to make and I don't have any tips to share either. So I'm just here to share the gazillion amount of photos taken in a bid to lessen the amount of photos that have seen their graves in my HDD.
Check out Juliana’s awesome Photoshop skills
The shoot was held at a popular local landmark and there were heaps of people everywhere. Trying to get an empty background was definitely not an easy task.
Singaporeans who don’t know this place should be ashamed of yourself! Stop reading this post now and go explore your country!
Multitudes of test shots where I relish in expressing myself Collage made with Picasa and some slight touchup done to prevent my eyebags from scaring you. Yes, IKR, the last 2 pictures are so manly. The ladies love me
I’m sitting in the shadow of Juliana’s Light Shade. My eyes couldn’t take the full glory of our cardinal Sun so you guys will just have to deal with the awkward shadow. Yes, my wig is really messy =(
Really liked this picture even though its too blur =( The kite is real by the way. Great timing yeah xD?
My fringe and face spoilt everything but I like how Juliana posed me ;D
This is narcisstic, I'm finding it hard to justify this post.... -_-
Oh well, High 5 !
One thing I realize after this Photoshoot which I seriously ought to have realised long ago. But you know what they say about a picture speaking a 1000 words. And I guess having photographic proof speaks louder than any theories.
I realize If you don't want to have to post-process your photographs, then make sure you and your photographer set up the light well!
The only reason why these photos are presentable without Photoshop is because Juliana (photographer) set up an awesome Light stand to illuminate my face. And we took effort to make sure my face is getting as much light as it could by facing the right angle or have a reflector to fill the light in.
If you and your photographer can't afford a reflector, fret not! Just find some big white material (Vanguard sheet, styrofoam) and they can do the trick too!
Kyoko the Saikang Warrior
The long wait for Ren to be done with his interview…
You can tell I enjoy having fun and living the character when I’m cosplaying. Even though I admit, half of the pictures are me with a silly face but ….. you know you love Kyoko :D yea yea?
Hope you enjoyed this entry! Leave me a comment to tell me you’r still alive after this photo flood :X
