Alone Among The Crowd

Shot this after Chinese New Year Parade 2015. Spotted this lovely lady among the crowd with an interesting body expression. When I am shooting, my eyes are like an eagle eyes. It can spot interesting subject among the crowd.

It all comes down to practice, practice and more practice. Technically it is easy to master the exposure but what\’s make an interesting photos is the interesting moment in life and your subject matters. Hopefully I can share some values with this photo.

As for the technical side, I used bounce flash to get better quality of light on the subject. I don\’t use direct light as the main light. It is not the best lighting. If you could bounce the light, bounce it. It would be difficult if it\’s outdoor and you have nothing to bounce stuff on. I used the my palm to bounce the light for this photo. Yes you can bounce light of your skin. Try it and you be amazed with the physic of light.
