Cheltenham Badlands Lighting Rationale/Breakdown

Published May 15th, 2014

Someone asked me about my lighting for the shoot at the Badlands that I’ve recently posted/shared and since I’m typing up this reply anyways, I figured I’d share it with anyone else who might be interested.

I’m going to broadly cover my general approach to lighting first then get into the specifics for the Badland shots.

Note: all photos taken with the Canon are by Haley Ma [] - my good friend, photographer, assistant for the day, and in charge of behind the scenes for the day.

He also recorded the behind the scenes video of the shoot (I edited the video) - here's the link if you haven't checked it out yet :p

Below, you'll find, in order:

-Final pictures from the shoot (the ones that have been Photoshop-ed)

-Behind the scenes / stand in shots of one of our assistants for the day - Mikhail

-Pictures of our dancer, Queenie, that I thought were neat/interesting to share, but for one reason or another, didn't quite make the final cut to get the Photoshop treatment (these have only had broad exposure/tonal/color adjustments made in Lightroom - no local adjustments)

One more thing: that water is preeettyyy cold, even in summer…absolutely beastly of our ballerina, Queenie, and assistant, Mikhail, for tanking it through the water for over an hour.

A trip to Hong Kong + a bit of Macau

Published March 7th, 2013

These pictures were taken over the course of roughly 10 days (I was there for 2 weeks, but there were a couple of days where I was meeting family/wasn't shooting) with either the iPhone 5, Fuji X100, or Fuji X-Pro1 with the 35mm f/1.4 lens.

iPhone pictures were edited mainly using VSCO Cam, and occasionally Camera+ (purely for the "Clarity" filter).

RAW files from the Fuji cameras were processed with Lightroom 4.4 Release Candidate (with MUCH better X-Trans sensor support compared to 4.3) with the help of VSCO Film for most pictures (I often use VSCO Film as a starting point, then tweak a few sliders by hand as needed for each image).

The exception to the above being the long exposure cityscapes of the Hong Kong skyline. I didn't use VSCO Film at all for these pics and essentially hand/custom did all the sliders. These are also the only pictures that were worked on to a "medium degree" (by my standards) in Photoshop CS6 and had Nik Software's Color Efex Pro 4 Tonal Contrast filter a ...

Dinner At Zakkushi

Published February 9th, 2013

The light today was just amazing. I don't typically take a lot of "walk around" pictures with my "serious" camera (usually just stick to iPhone pictures)...but there was so much beautiful light today - I sure am glad I had my Fujis on hand :)

On a geek note: I didn't intentionally do it (I just thought it out one shot at a time), but every picture here happens to be taken at 35mm f/1.4 1/125 (ISO varied a bit)

Arts York dance shoot

Published June 25th, 2012

Shot in Collaboration with Haley Ma (

It's probably been over 2 years since I've done any kind of "behind the scenes" video (I usually get too caught up in the shoot itself and there isn't anyone handy making them for me) and while this isn't exactly one, it'll be my first time trying something like this.

I'm not a blogging kind of person. I consider myself to be a "scattered" kind of person - in terms of interests & mediums. I find it weird to put all kinds of different things in one outlet - I much prefer to "categorize" sections of my life through different websites/social media services etc.

I also am generally the kind of photographer that only shows my top 2-3, MAYBE 4 shots from each shoot and don't want anyone to ever see the other pictures from the shoot. So what I'm doing here - showing ~50 pictures from a single shoot is something quite uncharacteristic of me (but I also find it oddly liberating at the same time).

What's below is what I'd show/say if you ...
