Tabi basa and greeting everybody! Finally it’s Sunday and there is only one day left for my first ever Citra Kenyalang Performance competition which is being held online at my Facebook page Tukang Rantek.
For today’s story, I’d like to write about my exprience doing photoshoot at a tennis court with fellow Miri photographers: Denzel “Denz”, Steve Maggie & Mas Jay.
Our talents for yesterday’s session was Katheria & Steph. On our way to Miri Tennis Complex, Kat left her racket. As we get near to the court, Denz told us that he forgot to bring the balls. So, we have to bought two new sets of balls at Servay near Grand Palace.
This is actually the first time I meet those three in person: Jay, Denz and Steph. But we did our photoshoot as if we have known each other for a very long time. I am also the type of person who don’t approve random FB friends request unless I have met requestor in person (with few exceptions).
For our photoshoot, there was no system in place. We just shoot at random at first. Since there is only two talents and four photographers, we did our session by doing it per talents. I started off with Kat because the other boys seems to be more interested in Steph (tok nok ditangga ku ja), where Kat was left to her own devices.
Kat seems to be insecure with her own tummy, but I hope she takes it as a motivation to maintain her fitness level.
After a while, finally I managed to get my turn to photograph Steph. She seems to be serious, but she’s actually a friendly person and easy to work with. She demonstrates her familiarity with photography sessions and it makes my life easier. She’s also an anime lover, including Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack On Titan (still waiting for the final season, part 2 where Erehh became the bad guy. Duh)
Sometimes, even as a photographer, I also need to give few instructions to the talents in order for them to be able to help me with my requirements.
Finally, after 1.5 hours of photoshoot, the session came to an end. So, here is the pic that we took before we departs.
For this photoshoot, I used a single-OCF (off-camera flash) where it is adequate, considering I am not assisted by anyone. It is also sufficient to fill most of the shadows generated by November sun. For me, having photoshoot with like-minded friends is important to strengthen bond as well as to have fun in the weekend.
Perhaps I should write more about my boudoir in this blog. Anyway, have a good weekend everyone!
