Moving Behind The Camera, Seeing Through the Viewfinder

My job has me working in front of cameras all the time. I decided to make a little change this time and put my thoughts into the photos by seeing through the viewfinder. Fortunate to have Casey to grace my photos, and hopefully I can create red hot intensity by using Redscale XR 50-200 with my La Sardina.

My job has put me in front of a camera all the time and I give my best for those behind the cameras. Working as a model is fun, no doubt, and what makes it better is that you get to observe and learn how photographers create their creative pieces. This time, instead of being in front of the camera again, I moved behind it and saw through the viewfinder.

Thank you to Jetzh and John for being kind enough to let me use their studio. Casey was such a sweetheart for willing to grace my frames and I really hope to produce shots that we both will like. Casey and I are relatively new to do this, but we sure had loads of fun picking the clothes to wear, deciding on what to photograph, how to pose and so on.

My La Sardina was armed with two rolls of Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 and hopefully I can achieve the punchy red intensity in the photos. I did experiment by adding on the blue and yellow color filters for some of the shots too. Most of the shots, I used the studio light and diffused it with the softbox to give extra light on the model’s face.

I didn’t really use the backdrops in the studio, and I just photographed Casey at the couch, storeroom, window sides or even the washroom. I guess I much prefer the background not to be too plain.

That day Casey actually just bought a three-month old kitten before coming to the studio. I wanted to pair them up to photograph but the kitten seemed to be very stressed finding himself at the new environment. So I decided not to photograph the cat and give him time to relax himself. Casey and the boyfriend were thinking what to name the kitten. In the end we all decided to name him Sardine since La Sardina is the first camera to photograph him :D

Let’s meet Sardine now!
