One of my come-back photoshoot after taking very long break from shooting fashion.
Muscles became stiff, movement became slow, signs of getting older. :sweatsm:

Shoot was taken with Akina Miyano, our gorgeous model from Japan ON A TOP of P tower.

All photos were taken by Nikon D800. The D800 was sold, in the pursuit of better high ISO performance !

woah...undereye wrinkles. she's looking tired.

MUA Tip: use vaseline beneath foundation to fill and smoothen, apply makeup lightly over it as a "floating" layer

It is really amazing
1. My lighting techniques:
I use a high-key lighting to illuminate, blow out, and create attention to the model.

2. Lens specs ?
The high grade prime lens is my first choice. Not referring to particular brand, but if you use:
- Nikon body, use Nikkor G prime lens with nano crystal coat
- Canon body, use Canon L prime lens
- Sony body, use Carl Zeiss prime lens
- M4/3 body, use Panasonic Leica prime lens

3. Camera setting ?
M (manual) exposure mode

Hi,

my 2 cents worth :)

from my monitor, exposure to parts are bordering on overexposed? control the shadow from the nose with a light fill-in (say reflector). try to avoid up the nose shots, sorry not very flattering. :)

Exposure can be very subjective. It is on the high side but I don't think it is overexposed. ;)

On the other hand, agreed that using reflector would achieve better result. So sad that not possible to use it during the session due to site constraint.

Thanks and Cheers :)

glamour portraits are not easy to take as they are many considerations whilst you are taking i.e. to show off the subject, hence the term glamour. keep shooting with a critical eye. :)

Upload one more, as appreciation for her whom had opened her leg and posed to me.
Actually I have tried to open my own leg & split for exercise but end up with pain on my thigh muscle. :cry:
Still pain <sigh>

Actually I just tried to shoot with different approach, trying not to make another ordinary portrait photo.
But No Worry Bro. You opinion is highly appreciated. :)
