The hotel is basically a pre-merdeka English colonial type of hotel that attached to the KTM building in Kuala Lumpur. It is not as big as E&O Penang, but good enough to give you a feel of the colonial living style.
I always like the roof top of the old KTM building. Hence, this round, we specially request to go up to the roof top for some shoot. The hotel management say OK, and we head straight up, by the hotel's super old escalator !
The pre-weds are Azrin's brother, Azuan. So, this self proclaim model like to post for a flash testing.
It was about 10.30am in the morning, and the sun light was burning our skin! Shooting without a reflector had caused the face to be deep dark in shadow. So, I pop a flash on it. Overpowering the overwhelming sun with a single flash is not a good idea, hence I set up 2 flashes, the F56 from Azrin's and my F42, both in full power. As you can see from Azrin's pics on top, he is kinda overexposed ! Yes, super overexposed. Hence, we dropped the power to 1/2 both. Just wonder, if I use only one F56 with full power, would I get the same result ? I donnu, because I didn't try it. LOL
Again, with true semangat of photography, our friend Azrin would do what ever to ensure he gets THE right composition. This is what I call "The Good Semangat"!!
Well, we had great time there in the hotel, and no, I can't show you the result. Client's request. I could only allowed to post public after my client's big day, which fall on January 2009. Kesian to my fellow muslim friend who has to work during the puasa month. However, we had great time, and I can't wait to see the end result. Azrin is doing it, and I'm just a Juru Tukang Tangkap Gambar sahaja. LOL
