    Ok. Leave the model to me.(I am not the model lar). I will look for one.
    We will split the charge on that day based on the number of turn up.

    Cool?

    I am fine with splitting the cost but just not sure if we will then have enough time to think and play around with the lighting configurations and still shoot the model. May be pressured into keep shooting the model and not really trying out ideas.

    You have a point.

    We can trial and error for 1 to 1.5 hrs and I will get the models to come after that trail and error session.

    No model no kick

    Cool?

    An outing where we will go around places and setting the flashes (off-camera) for practice..
    This Sat (13 Jun).


    So If anyone interested, we can get this outing going
    Please state camera type and flashes type so that we can plan what to do.

    1.Xfathom69
    D300, SB900,SB400
    BTW what time and where is the place, is this indoor or outdoor. to really learn about CLS I suggest indoor as you could control the lighting. If it is outdoor mainly it become more a fill in lighting.

    I think both indoor and outdoor will be fine.
    I am thinking sharing the concept of mixed lighting(Ambient + flash) day and night

    I suppose the outing will either be in morning or late afternoon?

    I would opt for botanic garden or Fort Canning Park, cos never been there, seems to be a very popular place for shooting.

    1. I would opt for Clarke Quay instead. Central and we are able to catch the twilight and night lights at that area. It's a safer option for all as we know the place well and know where to shoot.

    2. TS please post the date, time and venue soon.

    3. People pls PM me if you would like to have model. I would need a positive vote of more than 60% out of the total participants, otherwise no point if not much people shooting.

    Central mall is fine.
    It has indoor and outdoors
    brick texture wall, temple, spiral staircase should be ok for us to try out our ideas

    Mezzotint
    You can show us your light painting with the building.

    Haha... Then I will have to bring all my barang barang liao. Kidding...

    OK I'm on for Central Mall location. I'll bring my light stands & stuff. Anyone got large light reflector, those 5-in-1 type? Good to use that, especially with the white diffuser with which we can do shoot-thru lighting.

    Lunas, please count me in for the model shoot. Thanks.
