Going green with 4 models and 1 light…

Posted in Models, Photography with tags , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2010 by ari7474

Recently, I had a shoot with 4 nigerian models. I’ve never shot a nigerian before so it was something new to me.

When they came to my studio, it really was like having Beyonce there. Hot bods, nice abs and nice booty too 🙂

the 4 super models

As soon as I started taking the light reading, 1 light decided to die on me. Let me explain, I used to have 3 lights. 1 already went for servicing and now 1 decided to just go to sleep. I’m left with 1 light and 4 models to shoot. Luckily that 1 light could sustain the shoot.

The idea for me apart from the beauty shots was that I wanted to shoot something with a message. Something smart. Something that could make the viewer think. And being me, of course I came up with it 🙂

Here’s the concept of what I had in mind.. In view of all this going green and save the earth.. I came up with this..

“It doesnt have to be like this”

See? Could you see the message here? If we dont take care of our environment, this is how our kids would go fishing in the future. Smart eh? Not only that, I’m actually doing my part here in making others realize that “we could and should save the earth”.

Okay. Now, enough with saving the world. Let’s talk about the beauty shots. Hehehe.. My fave part 🙂

You see, 1 of the models look like Naomi Campbell. And I wanted to portray her that way (minus the handphone throwing and all). Here she is… Let me present to you..

M…

Nice eh… Well.. that’s the problem. I have plenty of nice shots of her and I’m having a tough time to choose.

Next up is Precious. She was the one who contacted me for the shoot. Awesome body and she pulled off some really high fashion poses.

She really wanted something with torn jeans and this was what we came up with.

Preciously HOT

Awesome right? Well.. thank you for the compliments.

You know what, I’m so proud of myself. I managed to do what I like and also help the environment at the same time. It takes a genius like myself to come up with things like these. I hope you’ll recycle and bring your own bag to the supermarket after reading this and also use those expensive energy saving bulbs at home.

Thank you 😀

Inspirational thoughts that could conquer the WORLD..

Let’s see…

Recently, i’ve been staring reading books and manuals for work. It’s quite.. err.. how should i say it.. err… i’ll just say it’s okay lah. Work is work right? It’s NOT supposed to be earth shattering kan… Anyway, my fingers are itchy for the shutter button now. But.. what should I shoot?

Ahah!!

My friend told me that you could get inspirations from books and magazines like playboy, penthouse, FHM, Vogue and all… The articles and images are quite inspirational 😀

Since i’m eager to shoot, so, we’ll just discuss the images lah.

The light control is awesome. The poses are.. err.. awesome too 🙂

Now… after reviewing those images, I’m thinking of doing a shoot.

Camera: Checked

Lights: Checked

Backdrop: Checked

Model: NOT checked

Theme: Checked

Review again.

What’s missing? Oh yaa.. Models…

How? Any volunteers?

What??? All of you want to be my models???

Seriously???

WHAT?? Just kidding????

Hey… dont play play okay… NOT funny.

Okay lah, here’s the story… I’m actually doing a shoot soon but i need something out of this world. Can any of you suggest any themes for me?

Here’s some images from my previous shoots that I’ve done and I need something different. Have a look…

Kelly

Leo

Fiza

Krystal

So peeps, any suggestions?

Well, if you do, just pen down your thoughts here and the winner will get a “teh o ice limau” & Nasi Ayam okay?

Sounds interesting right?

Now get your thoughts spinning and let me know… You wouldnt want to waste those juicy chicken rice and ice lemon tea right…

p/s: why do i feel like the prize offered here wont attract much participation ah? Having makan with me is already considered GRAND… oh well.. that could be the main prize then.. the makan with me… HAHAHAHHAHAA…

Disputes???

Normally.. when guys chat.. it’s always a story of “mine is bigger than yours” kinda thing..

Everybody says that their more handsome lah.. better in bed lah.. got anaconda lah.. 3 hours lah.. etc…

But when pressed to show.. semua lari… Hahahahhaaa…

Anyway, I’m not like that. If i say “I’m hensem and 3 hours..” it’s true. :p

Okay.. so what’s this post about then.. Well.. recently, we had a teh tarik chat and we started chatting about whose car is faster. It’s a never ending story of “my car got this exhaust.. got this intake.. got this sticker (stickers are known to add horsepower..hehehe) and so on and so forth..

To settle it.. we decided to drag and settle the problem.

Nice kan the picture?

Eh.. wrong.. DAMN nice kan the picture???

Hehehe.. Seriously.. Jokes aside.. this was an impromptu decision and it was done very quickly. Because of my skills and terrerness, we managed to wrap up the session within 2hours..

Well.. here’s a few more of the model.. The lighting was only the street lights as it was raining and my sb800 (flash) decided to just sleep after it got wet 😦

Thanks for viewing and hope to see you all again next year.. Hahahahahahaha…

Flamin’ Hot…

Heyloooo people..

 

Let’s pretend like we’re in a concert and the Super Star on stage is asking the audience okay..

Since it’s my story.. So I’ll be the Super Star and you all can be the audience lah.. hehehe..

 

Ari Handsome: How’s everybody feeling? 

Readers: Feeling HOT !!!

Ari Handsome: Feeling WHAT??!!!

Readers: Feeling FLAMIN’ HOT!!!

Ari Handsome: YEAH!!!!

 

*at this moment.. you all clap clap your hand and do standing ovation laa..

 

Okay.. so now you may ask me.. why so hot laa right? And here’s the story why…

 

Recently, I was in Jakarta. For work incase you’re asking.. And while I was there, the weather was really Hot and I met a beautiful young girl by the name of Flame. 

So.. that’s where I got the title.. Flaming Hot.

Smart eh? I think I’m really cool lah for being so smart to think of such a cool title 🙂 LoL!

 

Ok..ok.. enough with the compliments.. I’m flattered already..

 

Now, let me introduce Flame to you.. Well.. her name is Flame. 

She’s young and she happens to be a model. 

 

Flame 5

 

When I was there, I took some pictures of her when she and her brother Jesse took me to Taman Mini. Taman Mini is like a mini Indonesia. Very nice. But the only problem was, the park was mostly closed. So, we didnt get to see that much though. 

 

Indo Flag

Ok.. let me continue my introduction of Flame..

She’s actually Portuguese-Dutch-Indian-Indonesian (Quite a handful eh? hehehe..) 

Currently, she’s teaching English in Jakarta and taking a break from modeling coz she’s 4 months pregnant. Even when pregnant, she could take some time off to show me around. That’s very nice of her and her brother.

We also went for some original Nasi Padang there. Excellent. Nothing like what we have here in KL.

 

Anyway, before I went back to my hotel, they brought me to some local DVD shop there. Bought a few souvenirs  to bring back home lah 😉 hehehe..

That’s when I took the picture of Flame which you saw at the top just now..

So.. before I end my story about my Jakarta trip, here’s a few more of Flame and her brother Jesse. 

 

Flame 2

Jesse 1

 

*ok.. now you can do your round of applause like when the Super Star finish their performance on stage…

 

Clap..clap..clap.. 

 

Thank You…  😉 

 

Flame 4

Beauty lies in the eyes…

“of the beholder…”

Now, wouldnt you think that saying is true..?

Ok.. here’s what happened the other day.. a friend wanted to shoot a model. So, he gave me a ring.. “toot..toot..” 

“Ey Ari, you free ah..? Wanna go shoot a stewardess..?” Then I said..” Hmmm.. let me check my very busy schedule first.. ”

then after 3 long seconds.. “Alright!!! Lets do it bro..” (hehehe…) 

So, off we went scouting for a decent location and after we found it, we brought the models over and did a shoot. And here’s the product that came out of my Nikon D3 😉

fiza-3

Oh well, there’s more laa rite but I cant post all of it here kan.. 

You see, the model’s name is Hafiza. She’s a stewardess and I’ve never flown with her before but she seems very friendly and even for a non pro model, she could pull off many different poses for me. And her best features are her eyes.. It was further enhanced by a Makeup Artist who is also a stewardess by the name of Azila.

And then.. after lunch, we headed over to Show-Off Studio (my wannabe home  studio laa..) to try and capture her in studio environment. And this is what my 24-70mm came up with..

fiza-4

So… Nice or not..? I think nice laa kan.. I’m very happy with the shots but if there’s any comments or feedback from you guys/gals.. it would be great..

Anyway, tomorrow, Sunday the 18th, I’ll be heading to Central Market Annexe Gallery. Photomalaysia’s Vanishing Heritage Exhibition will be doing it’s launch there. Oh, and one of my pictures was selected. It’s their 2nd time doing it and last year, 3 of my pictures was selected 😉

nst

So, that’s all for today.. I hope everyone can chip in a few words to help make me a better photog would be helpful. Thanks peeps.. Nitey nite..
