Tibetan Girl

Taken in Tibet, this little village girl is the typical Tibetan girl, nature, a little shy but not afraid to stare into the lens. Shot with Leica M8, with Summilux-M 35/1.4 Asph.
I made this picture in a small village about 100km from Lhasa. It was a warm late summer afternoon.

White Balance

Taken with Canon 1Ds 3 and my favorite EF lens (one of many), the sharp 50/1.2L. Made with available light in a warehouse, I tune the white balance in Capture One Pro, for this final image. White balance is a powerful tool, not only that it gives natural look but also an alternative way to introduce the image in the photographer's own way.

The Move

Still image is a moment of non-stop motion, as how we see the world involves. And from our everyday experience, when we see the still image, in fact we all expect what the next move will be, and it is the fun of producing still image.
This shot, made very recently for a magazine fashion insert, incorporate with BridgeStone, the location was the tire cache warehouse, a lovely model from Russia. Using Canon 1Ds3 and EF 50/1.2L, I place the light behind me, a Profoto flash to flood the warehouse so it reflects back to the model with a more natural and even light, but still enough to pain the high light on the model's skin.
What I captured was not an image, it was a moment of her movements.

A fashion image took for Kloset, using Canon 1Ds Mk3, EF 85/1.2L, the focus of course is to highlight the dress. The lovely model, Dasha has a fair skin and nice blond hair, I use the light, a Bron-color Para 220 with Pluso G powered by a Nano A4, burn the skin and hair while keep the vibrant color of the dress the center of focus of this picture.
