Well! For the Strobist out there. We all know how bulky the Beauty-dish is.
Especially for me who doesn’t even drive in Shanghai, China. Carrying the big Beauty-Dish is hard. (and people often thought I am a Satellite Technician)
So I’ve always tried to avoid using it.
The other day, I was walking around XingGuang (the Shanghai Camera Mall, Yes a WHOLE BUILDING selling photography related stuff!!)
I came across a little rather useless thing, which is a reflector that mount in front of the camera lens, to act as a “Ring-flash” that’s selling for 20 Chinese Yuan (about 3USD??)
But suddenly this strike me, I can make use of this thing. and solve the beauty Dish problem.
So! I am back to Shanghai.
It was nice to visit Home@Toronto and travel around the US.
but also it’s nice to be back with all my gears and toys around!
So as i said last time, I will post a few more strobist style pics that I took during the US trip.
So here we go!
We’ve been talking about we wanted to host a Strobist 102 workshop.
we did 101 a few time already, time to move up and go practical.
So last weekend, few of us decided to do a test run.
Organized a small scale workshop with 5 people only.
It was quite successful I think.
We hired one model, and XXOM also brought a friend.
Read on to check out some of the model shots and test shot!! and find out how we think about the meetup
Summer is TOO hot in shanghai….
so … we decided to have NIGHT time meetup this month!
Since lot of us got no high-iso or super fast lens.
walking around town could cause a problem…
so… someone came up with the idea of doing night painting!!!
this morning.. thousands of people lining up trying to gets in…
So … another “How Kirk Did-it”
This time featuring the little Beetles toy car.
Well, in this new blog,
I’ve decide to add a catagories called “HKD” (stands for “How Kirk Did-it”, not HongKong-Dollar)
in here, i will talk about how I took certain picture. I will try to be as in-depth as possible. however, if something doesn’t make sense, feel free to leave it in comment, and i will try to answer.
