Online promotion photograph of a pizza shop at Beijing & Online promotion of another pizza shop in Zhuhai. Now most effect advertisement is done using mobile apps, so a small size photo is good enough to help the thief get the job done, to minimize the damage we just can put the watermark in the middle.

Jinbei JB14129 Multi Function Backpack (Photo show the size as propose, They are 1 DC-600, 2 Battery, 1 Standard flash head, 1 Pro flash head) Just fit in Falcon Eyes Travel Case WPC-3.2 JB14129 - The outer material is fine, but the PAD and inside is very shit... since it's hard to find a backpack that can hold the DC-600 pack tight fit, so we choose to buy one.

I have been advocating the use of light meters for some time in Zhuhai & Macau, so far just 3 photographers follow the idea and just 2 or them is calibrated, 10 years 3 photographers... is kinda too slow man.

I know many people say, photography is a experiment act... but as a professional photographer... we cannot use our client as lab mice right? I just finish another fake HSS / hypersync / supersync test with the acon new firmware, and created a new cheating sheet as one of my trick in the bag. Ba ba ba... I know you don't know what I am talking about. I just try to tell you that don't hire any photographers who don't know their equipment well / what he is doing / they never doing homework. You don't think such photographer is around? Ha Ha... Let me tell you one story. Whenever I don't have acon hypersync solution, my fellow photographer / assistant always tell me how good his Nikon D800 + odin as hypersync tool, and he always joking that I should rental his system to do the job... BUT... when I asking more deep... let say band line, power lose of each speed and other issues, he actually have no idea at all. WTF if I trusted him and rent his system for a real client photography session? You guess!!

Do we build a website for our audience or GOOGLE? Do we still got friends, if we don't use social apps? Do we use smart phone, or we used by something else? Do people studio photography, is there is no photoshop?

Don't know why people now so afraid to see their own real face. They don't feel good about the photograph direct from the camera without Photoshop!! My new project "Portrait Without Retouch" is to capture and display your raw face in my website, and will offer a 4x6 print as compliment. Please feel free to contact me... if you are living in Zhuhai, and willing to be my model. I will select the face with strong character and arrange the photography session asap.

Although you know lighting well, something just too lazy to adjust that a few inches / degree tilt etc... especially when the light head is up high over the bloom... double ball joint head help me resolve this issue.

JPEG file direct from Ricoh GR I find this small LED panel in FlashCamp's shop, and now it become my pocket lighting tools everyday ;) Tonight, there is another guy with a camera... who ask me... is that possible to use Ricoh GR for some product photography... so I created such photograph not for client but just for fun. This lighting and set is simple with a 400w ring flash and the LED panel itself. PS: When you understand photography lighting, you can do whatever you want with very simple setting.
