Ok so here goes for Breakfast, oh and please dont lick your screen!

Pancakes, who doesn’t love them, especially for breakfast, have a look at these images:

the below setup shows clearly what goes into a shot like this, white seamless paper as a background, a 3 light set up, 1 firing into background, 1 into a softbox and another aimed at a golden reflector to reflect to the pancakes, and give them a nice warm glow from the other side……aluminium reflector etc for fil



Champagne, Bubbly, or Sparkling Wine

In fact this is not Champagne at all, its not even from France, leave alone the Champagne region. The more so it means its cheap and thus it means I can afford to waste three bottles to practice on! 3 Bottles 24 glasses, a glass plate, flash in zip lock bag, softboxes and no fooking foam boards to be found in the estate I live in………damn for that, I mean foam boards who doesnt use them?

oh and forgot to say am getting tipsy on some reasonably good plonk for the dollar right now!

In the Jungle the Mighty Jungle the Lion sleeps tonight,……….ok too much champagne…… need to rest!

Ciao and sleep well

All my gear is back from the doctor!

My gear had some problems, some were sick, some were dirty….so they had to go to the specialist and dust doctor for deep cleaning and medication.It sure looks like the sensor is clean again, and hell do they do a good job on dusting these guys, everything looks like new!

But everything has to be tested to prove its right so tonight, I had only limited time…..did a quick test with my little big boy as the subject… do kids NOT sit still.anyway everything squeeky clean and calibrated and fixed, etc etc again so here we go a few quick shots at home.

In two weeks time I am doing a shoot for a law firm, in between that for a salon, a few quick and small F&B shoots in between, all this whilst my wife and my wee boy fly out for a week of R&R in the Philippines…….i try to get some R&R with her when she is back home again!

Class Act!

A friend of mine, Christa asked me to shoot her some new images for her business website. She teaches Etiquette to businesses and private people and does so very good, she was also involved with the HITDC in Hong Kong during its initial years.

Here a few sample shots from that day.
