A long awaited family photo shoot for Mike Singh and his lovely family was finally realised on the eve of Christmas. This family photo shoot was done at the premise of the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC). Thankfully, it had just rained the night before and it had been a cloudy day when the shoot happened on an early Saturday morning. Despite the overcast, lighting was simply awesome!
I’d wanted to use flashes but ditched the idea for flexibility and speed. These shots were taken with a prime 50mm f/1.4. Even though general lighting was diffused with a wide soft spread, the lighting was directional in certain areas. This was especially true in more shaded areas or right up next to a structure. The early morning light also helped made this possible.
With great weather and a sporting family, we eased into favourable shooting rhythm in no time and were done in about 1.5 hours.
