    A (candid) portfolio shot I did for my friend Amy Tsang.

    She blogged about it at here so I'm just returning the favour.

  • Smokin' hot... or not?

    Monday, Jul 6, 2009 4:00PM / Members only

    Just my random thought of the day.

    You'd think that as a lawyer I'd know this, but I wonder if the new anti-smoking legislation here in HK makes any distinction between smoking (as in putting a cigarette to your lips and puffing) and the simple act of lighting a cigarette indoors?

    There is some relevance to my question.  I saw some dailies from a photoshoot yesterday where the model was called upon to evoke a 1930s Shanghai look, and she was holding a cigarette rather rakishly in her hand.  Problem was, of course, it wasn't lit as the shoot was taking place in a cafe.  But the effect of the photo was lost, IMO.  It's not quite the same when the model is holding what is basically a dead white stick.  You need to ash and smoke for it to come alive.

    Funny I'd say this since I don't smoke, but hey.

    Smoking kills, kids!

    And stay in school!

  • My favourite photo of the year so far

    Saturday, Jun 27, 2009 5:48PM / Members only

    I think most pro photographers or even those who are broadly categorised as photo enthusiasts like myself will tell you that the photo they consider their most commercially successful or their standard "money shot" differs from the particular shot or type of photo they consider their personal fave.

    This one is my personal fave of 2009 so far.  It's not my most loved, judging from the critical response, but I do love it dearly.  I'm an advocate of high black-and-white contrast, even though it's hardly flavour of the month.  It's of the Japanese Jazz pianist Yuki Makita mid-performance at this year's FCC Jazz Festival.  So I'm posting it here just for my own edification and ego massaging... ha ha.

    Thanks for coming down easy on me and for sharing those cool pics. I complete agree with you and I think they're onto something...smart promotion definitely (^_^)
    I mean personally, I might admire any pretty thing on conventional models but I definitely won't consider buying if its on the body that I won't be able to relate to. That lingerie model is gorgeous still. I wish designers would use more models that look like that instead if "industry standard" but that just my silly female opinion. I remember Karl Lagerfeld said that runway & magazine clothes are meant to be prototype and shouldn't be consider as wear-able piece of clothes to wear and I think he's right. So did you have fun...even though it's really "hard work" :-)

    Have a great Sunday.
