My friends and I did a photoshoot in a relatively cramped studio around the boat quay area last month. Being newbies at studio photography setups and with time contraints a factor, we made do with a few simple ones through trial and error. All of us have a full time job, so finding a schedule which fits all of us was not easy. Used in these samples are images taken with the Nikon 35mm F2 AFD, a nice little compact prime lens which provided me with tack sharp and relatively undistorted half and full length portraits. Most of the aperture settings were set between F8 to F11 for the lens performance sweet spot. Bokeh in this case is not very important as the backdrop is plain and undistracting. My Nikon D200 performed well under Auto White Balance setting throughout. My ex-colleague was kind enough to model for us for this shoot. She did a great job on her makeup and poses, even though she may not be a professional model or have any makeup artist with her! As you all may know, I mostly do natural light photography, and I am very inexperienced at studio photography due to the numerous planning required, (such as theme, makeup/hair artist and studio bookings for the photoshoot), and the prohibitive costs involved. I thought I would like to share a long delayed picture from the rare studio photoshoot I did anyway. Cheers!
