Zhiyi really looks like she can pop any time now! We’re also getting close to a name so a big thanks to everyone who has chipped in with suggestions. All I can reveal for now is that it was one of those very nice suggestions that we received! See, it pays to ASK. 😉
Here’s the setup:
- Cloth (e.g. tulle) make for good backdrop material as well as makeshift, um, garments. You can get them from Arab Street at a fraction of the price compared to Spotlight. Bargaining is a must as most shops there give a very high starting quote.
- Putting a huge light source behind the cloth backdrop allowed for a high key look and, if controlled well, highlights the flow of the fabric. Notice how the lines lead the viewers eyes towards the subject.
- No f-stops numbers this time as this shoot was done 2 weeks ago. Note to self: make notes!
