Thogi vs. The Gorge

It has been so long since we did the Hells Gate photos so I wanted to post a few of the remaining ones to keep things moving. If you haven’t seen the previous post (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Thogi), check it out. These are from the oneTouch Live edition from a while ago. My group was shooting Thogi and we were using a reflector with the gold side to bring back light onto the model. The sun was overhead and very harsh so what we opted to do was shoot in the shade(instead of directly under the sun) and instead bounce the sunlight back using the gold reflector. That is where all the light on her face is coming from. This way we avoided getting those harsh shadows under the eyes and nose. Another thing that was frustrating due to the sun was the harsh lines formed by shadows on the gorge itself(see left side of photo)..I decided to shoot showing lots of the right side of the gorge instead and exposed for the shadow area which had a good gradation I think. As always this was done in collaboration with 2 extra ordinary people; Kay Ndeto (stylist) & Sonny Kay (make up).

Okay. On to the photos…

I love to do close up portraits. I did some while there before changing location. I decided to edit them a bit errm differently from what you would expect especially in this post. So have a look and let me know what you think.
