Paint With Light #3


ISO 200, Shutter 30 sec, f/8.0. Light source: small flashlight
Kate Moss leads the fall fashion trend on the cover of September's W Magazine. I put the magazine on a table and set the shutter at 30. I paint her face with a small flashlight, then move the magazine to paint again, move again and paint one more time.

Paint With Light #2


ISO 200, f/8.0, shutter 30 sec, light source: 2 strobes.
Elena Zhang immerses herself in some red and blue light in a bathtub. The light setting is inspired by Miu Miu's commercial modeled by Katie Holmes. I found there were different colors of lights on Katie's face and body, so I tried to strobe Elena first at the front with a red gel at 1/2 power, and strobe her back , (or the right side of her) with a blue gel at 1/1 power, because the blue gel was thicker and darker.
