Ha Ha Ha! Tht wld be interesting! My pics tu tak buat editing......Just add a bit of curves to play with the lighting. I bought the PS3 book but still lazy to practice......

damansara,
the less editing is the better.
In the world of runway fashion and media, you have no time to waste on editing unless you have personal editor working on it.

so the point is, good tech and shoot is vital.
you did it!

Nikon D300 punya geng! He's using Sigma 24-70mm 2.8.
About time for me to upgrade to better EOS series. At above 800 ISO I'm having noise problem. I was using 400 So my speed is the problem! Banyak gambar blur cik adik oii!

Freda..this is absolutely stunning.....I am looking forward to your book...best lucky my dear friend.....

You know I was speechless when I saw this.
I dont know if it's the expression on her face and in her eyes, there's just something about it.
The isolation and composition is perfect too.
After seeing your photo's of younger models in a studio environment you've captured a different kind of beauty here - this photo could tell so many stories to the viewer without actually knowing this person.
Without doubt my new #1 favourite photo by you. At first I thought it would make a good BW shot, but it's absolutely stunning in colour.
Good luck with your book - if this is the standard of the level of work in it, then you're going to turn a lot of heads.

This caught my attention ! Never knew she is from Bario if you did not mentioned it. The Kelabits (of that generation) would have tatooes and long ears weighted down by brass ornaments. So this photo is a departure of the 'normal' Kelabit. Not forgetting their straw hats and other headgears. Sarawak is a wonderful place for photos !
