Crouching Tiger Hidden Thogii
Hi guys. Last month, oneTouch live edition(dubbed “Hell Hath No Fury”) was at Hell’s Gate National Park and my oh my what a day. We had our model on call, Thogii available with Njeri & Kathy also modelling(their photos to come soon), Sonny Kay on make up and Kay Ndeto on style. The idea was to shoot a bridal spread in a different way, bring some grit into it.
Like every oneTouch live edition, the goal is for us to learn as much as possible & this was no different. We were in 3 groups of 3 photographers each & 1 model. I got to shoot and direct and I got to rock the reflector too…we shot on rotation so that everyone got a chance to be a shooter, director and gaffer. It was my first time to actively use a reflector and I loved the experience..well as long as you have sun to reflect back. Our group did not have flashes to use. All this was shot on natural lighting.
Challenges were mostly nature inspired. when the sun went behind a cloud we had to wait before shooting. When it came out, it was too harsh creating very harsh shadows. Our solution was to keep the model in the shade and reflect the light back on her(this worked very well) also we placed the model in a position where we would make good use of the shadows and highlights and still make it look good(this was much harder but worked to some extent).
Enjoy the images. I would be glad to answer any questions you may have here to the best of my limited knowledge.
