I remembered about 4 years ago I did a shoot with Angie Vu Ha
at her home. Then I was using Canon 5D MK II and also Hasselbald
H3D to photograph her. I guess the best shot was always unplanned.
During shoot Angie was hungry and she said lets take a quick
break. She went into her kitchen to cook some instant Tom Yum
noodles. While she was cooking; I captured my favorite shot of that session.
Fast forward today I have a pleasure of photographing Angie again.
Whom just arrived yesterday from Paris and flying off the next day to
Kuala Lumpur to attend Top Asia Corporate Ball where she received
her recognition award as Top female DJ
Life is never constant and ever changing. My gear for today’s studio
shoot is primarily GFX + GF120mm Macro. Why GF120mm F4
Macro and not GF110mm F2? Since I will be shooting a profile
shot and not a “product”. GF110mm will be the perfect lens for this
shoot. As I am shooting in a studio and I don’t see myself shooting
wide open; therefore GF120mm will be a better bet plus I could
shoot a lot closer if needed and also the OIS advantage.
The art direction for today’s shoot is a profile shot of Angie as a DJ.
As it was a last minute shoot; everything is unplanned. Angie just open
her suitcase and we started looking thought and see what we could
Eujin from Broncolor Singapore was kind enough to let me use his
studio. Plus helping me with the lighting with his wizardry in Broncolor
lights.. As with every shoot its not just the photographer. Its always a
team of creative people coming together to craft out the final photo.
