Hutong Fashion Shoot!
Hey guys and gals, apologies for the lack of posts. Just been busy flying around and signing up for way too many things as usual. So I have been consistently shooting, just takes me a bit of time to get around to the editing haha.
So, a new acquaintance introduced me to a photography editing software called DxO One that I was unaware of recently and I was told that it did wonders for noise reduction. Now for those who are not familiar with the term, noise is caused by bumping up the ISO in order to compensate for the lack of light.
I have to say that I was pretty impressed with the DxO One, not only was it effective at noise reduction; it works almost like magic! A lot of the smart editing done by the software was very accurate and required little to no manual adjustment.
A little background information about the shoot:
I had to travel to Beijing for a Iyengar Yoga teachers training a few weeks back and the classes finish at around 5pm so I thought it would be a great idea to see if I could organize a shoot in the evenings. I managed to find a modeling agency who had some new models in need of new test shoots and a dress company that was interested in getting some images for his dresses. Although everything turned out fine, in hindsight I would've preferred to work with more planning, preferably a stylist and better lighting equipment.
Here are some of the photos :)
