I have a few requests (via PM, emails and messenger) from fellow members asking if I could document a “The Making Of…” on Zia’s photo session and share it with everybody here so that the general standards in photography can be improved amongst members and the public.
First of all, I thank you for your continuous support and encouragement for my images but I am no photographer, not to mention that I am good enough to give any valuable and practical advice to people. I have a day job. Photography is just a hobby I love (I think I can call it a passion now…).
But nonetheless, I shall write down some pointers on how I achieve the end result of what you see in this thread:
I chose to put this thread over here and not any other section is because this thread is specifically detailing on the link you see above. Information stated, methods used and concepts adopted here in this thread are not generic applicable to all situations but specifically outlining the steps for which I took to accomplish my end results.
I shall break into small sections for easy reading.
