I’ve first worked with Melissa when I was in KL for Comicfiesta 2012, and thought that maybe I can squeeze in a shoot while I was there. Melissa was wonderful, she wasn’t taken back by the huge crowd of KL and remained calm the whole time without getting distracted. A year later when I decided to make another trip to KL again, I asked her if she still is interested to shoot, and her answer totally made my day.
I’ve experimented a few things that I’ve always wanted to try but always fears of failing and wasting people’s time. Thank goodness for Melissa who was so patient with me while I keep adjusting the lighting and trying out different angles and effects. I cannot be thankful enough for a patient and cooperative model. I still have more images to process but I usually retouch those that I liked best first 😛
I’m also learning other ways in directing the models to pull emotions out of them, despite that I’m actually somewhat socially awkward (this will be the death of me for sure) _(:3」∠)_ So not Leo, I know. Trying my best to change.
After the KL trip, I made two more travels to Hong Kong, the second one being to Hong Kong Fashion week. I’d say that I’m quite impressed with its scale and what it can provide. I’d really highly recommend local designers and even stylists to attempt to make a visit at least once, there are many treasures that you can dig from there. I’d write a more complete one in the next update, with pictures! 😀
Hong Kong, I was freezing my ass off to be honest. I should really pack more warm clothes the next time I visit during the winter. The wind was so much more chilly than I expected, even my thick wool scarf cannot save me. Being someone who is low blood pressure, I’m kind of vulnerable to cold ya.
A huge trip was planned for the second half of the year, and I’m really, really looking forward to it 😀 Tokyo, Japan!!!!!! *rolls around excited*
