Shooting Outdoor

You prolly notice by now that I don't have much outdoor & location images. 

I am a big fan of studio shoot and because of that it became my comfort zone.

There are few reasons why I don't shoot outdoor that often.
1. I don't like it when I don't have 100% control of light
2. I like simple and plain backgrounds 
3. I like contrast
4. I don't have a car, carrying equipments is not really the most convenient thing to do.
5. Without a car I don't know how the model will do outfit change

But because I need to push myself in doing outdoor shoot.
And so I organize an outdoor shoot near the studio and I told myself I wont bring anything but my camera, reflector and a speed light.

After 4-5 hours of make up, styling and shooting outdoor, I pulled the models and did a quick indoor shoot just to be sure I have good shots (this is because I'm not confident enough that I got the shots from outdoor)

I believe the outdoor shoots turned out ok, and now I have more confident in doing more outdoor and I learned that It's actually a bit easier since I dont have to prepare and meter every single light source.

This is definitely a good learning experience for me. 


A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.
