It’s the last day of the World Hepatitis Day shoot in KLPac, and we have with us 3 final placard-bearers. Our first two candidates are pretty well known radio dee jay, Ben from Fly FM and TV personality, Jay Menon. The third candidate is Ashley Khoo.
The lighting setup was a simple large soft box acting as on-axis fill, dialled way down and placed 4-5 metres behind me. My on-camera pocket wizard triggered this strobe, which in turn fires the rest. As usual, two strobes lit my backdrop on either sides and a small soft box acted as my key light.
Ben Jern Loh was pretty comical, though a little “stiff”. Nevertheless, he was a very patient and fun person to work with.
Jay Menon, the radio dee jay and TV personality was very natural in front of the camera. When the petite lass first stood on set, she almost immediately struck a pose, effortlessly that is.
She has very sharp intense eyes that lit up in unison with her wide infectious smile. Her high forehead spoke of confidence, I remarked, to which she laughed. Her narrow sharp features lend themselves well to be lit from up high above; close to 70 degrees angle, thus casting hard shadows under her chin.
A little googling revealed Jay Menon as FHM 100 Most Wanted Women in the World 2009. No wonder.
