Portrait Project: #8

So after a short duration between getting the film developed and what not, the next photos in the portrait series are here.

My mum and my dog "Muyang" (grilled pork in Thai)

I shot with Ilford pan 400 for these two photos and printed them on a matte 8" x 10" paper which I later scanned them on a canon pixma mx437. The colour and some details might have been altered and lost but what you see here nonetheless represent the awesome grain of 35mm film.

Portrait Project: Picture #5

I did not have a chance to take a portrait photo today so I decided to look through my old photo collections and see if I could pull one from there instead. And I found this photo of a girl sitting by this DIY sidecar in Poipet, Cambodia. 

She's the daughter of the gas station owner that we stopped by before heading off to Siam Reap, our final destination of that part of our excursion. 

Portrait Project: Picture #4

A friend of mine has been kind enough to lend me a Canon speedlite 580ex ii, I've never used flash before so I decided to give a go by shooting my friends. 

Here is one from the fun learning set.  I guess if I had a rim light from the back would be better to define his shape a bit more but I am pretty happy to get this from one light source.

PS: I should have closed the curtain at the back as well :D 

Thank you Nicolas Procureur for being my subject. 



Portrait project: Picture #2

Here is the second portrait for this year portrait project that I've set up for myself. 

I met this man here by my friend's apartment. 

He was reluctant at first but with some persuasion, he gave me a permission to take a photo of him. 

The time that I took this photo was around 5pm and the sun was hanging rather low in the sky.

I wish I had more time to talk to him before he left as he has to go somewhere on his motorbike.
