Gustavo Photo Shoot

I was back in Shanghai and had brunch with Gustavo over the weekend.  He asked me if I can help him with a shoot, mainly for professional head shots as well as some family group shots.  I said no problems and one day after work, I head over to his place with my gears.

My backdrops were all in Hong Kong and I opted for bedsheets as background.  I took my Canon 5D3 along with my 24-105mm F4 L lens, yongnuo YN-568 and YN-500 flashes and RF-622 remotes.  I setup two lights, one main directional light from the left and a second light from the right to take out some of the shadows and as a weak fill.  I intended to bring my Mamiya Universal along but my camera bag was simply full, maybe next time.

It was a two hour sitting and some great shots came out of it.  My two favorites shots are shown below.  These two shots were super loto and reminded me of the Daguerreotype photos and some old post cards that I have seen before.
