My shoot with Sachie Sanders

To those who may be unfamiliar with the name, sachie sanders is a member of viva hot babes, she appeared on the cover of playboy philippines’ july 2008 issue, she also has appeared on several issues of FHM Philippines.

Equipment: I brought two flashes, a canon 580ex and a nissin di622, since I wanted to do cross lighting. I only brought one receiver with me since I was hoping to trigger the nissin flash optically. Unfortunately the lighting setup didn’t quite work as the nissin flash wouldn’t fire. It was probably the batteries. I also brought a ring flash adaptor. I was planning to buy a 17-40mm f4L lens so i could get more dramatic angles, unfortunately I wasn’t able to buy one in time for the shoot. I had to rely on my 28-105mm lens and my 50mm prime lens which is why most of my shots were half body or portrait.

My camera: it looks menacing

The shoot was done in a certain tower in Makati. The staff of the place was probably paid very well by their employers as they seemed to be very enthusiastic about their jobs. So enthusiastic that they made their rounds more often than they were probably required to. They always kept a watchful eye on the model to make sure tha she was always comfortable. It was so nice of them.
Unfortunately for me, a lot of the pictures turned out to be unusable due to the high frequency of extra heads that appeared.

Anyway, here are the pics. (click on readmore below to see more photos) There are also more pics of the shoot on my multiply:

Metro comic con 2009 report

tags: cosplay, comic con, 2009, philippines, manila, final fantasy, bleach, action figures, pictures, photos

It’s been a while since I last updated and I know that my 100 bajillion readers are interested to know what I’ve been up to the past few months. I know this may come as a disappointment to some of you but I am not dead yet. I’m sorry. I merely contracted a debilitating case of internet addiction which rendered me incapable of doing anything that requires more than a minute of attention span.

On more interesting news, The first metro comic con was held at sm megatradehall on aug 8 and 9. I went there with the intention of geeking out and finding models/cosplayers to test my new lens on.

It’s my first time to attend a Philippine cosplay convention and I was expecting to see boatloads of fail but I must say that I was fairly impressed. The costumes were really well made and the cosplayers were fairly attractive in general.

I’ll try to write a more detailed report on the next entry but for now here are the pics: Click on the images to see them in high resolution (the entry is truncated. Click on readmore to see the rest of the photos) I'll post more pics on my multiply tomorrow click here for link
