Tag: 20mm f/1.8

Yay! It’s Friday! Time to do all the fun that has been planned for a week!

Today, we got Ms. Stevani to companying us on this lovely Friday.

This is my first time taking photo in the studio using all the lighting equipment and all I can say its wonderful experience.

At first she was a little nervous about the photo session, so we just chat and cracked a few jokes with her.

She asked about the kind of photo style that we want. I replied “Just be yourself, in the beautiful way.

She quickly grasped the idea and these are the result.

Any comment are greatly appreciated! :)

Golden Tiger is the zodiac for this incoming Lunar New year.

So naturally, various souvenirs with Golden Tiger shaped and drawings are everywhere to be seen.

I believe, this year will be a very good year after all that happened last year.

Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Lunar Calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Ancient Chinese New Year is a reflection on how the people behaved and what they believed in the most.

I took these shots with my trustee SIGMA 20mm f.1/8 lens, even though Nikon just announced a sparkling brand new  AF-S Nikkor 24mm F/1.4G ED, I shall not be tempted! (Actually, it is simply too costly for me, suggested price is US$2.200!!!) :D

For my non-Chinese friends, do you know what zodiac year you were born in? :) Would love to hear from you!

I am using HDR technique to captured both of these photos. Using my sigma 20mm f/1.8 lens on nikon d90 body. I wish to have a wireless remote for capturing night photos in BULB setting for greater effect.
