Have you ever planned a photoshoot about 2 months ahead and then had everyone from make-up artists to models to photographers show up as planned? Well that’s not what happened to the shoot I went to in Lake Tahoe two weeks ago 🙂
We’d changed the meetup dates a few times to make sure it’d fit with everyone’s schedule, but in the end, we still ended up missing a few individuals. That being said, it turned out to be a very fun all-day shoot with everyone who showed up, thanks to Kiem Nguyen, who organized everything.
We packed our car full with equipment, models, and photographers, and headed out to Tahoe at around noon-ish. Well, meetup time was 11am, but you know, Asian “rubber band time” and all, very elastic. We stopped by IHOP to grab some
brunch lunch, as our hands were shaking from starvation. By the time we arrived to the location, it was around 3pm, which pretty much had the best worst lighting a photographer could ask for. But, we made-do and took turn to hold light reflector and diffuser for one another. Ya know, voice-activated lighting and all 🙂 I manage to grab a few shots while my “assistants” were about to fall into the water. Haha thanks guys!
We soon realized that this was a bad location: light was too harsh, and there were too many people walking around, so we decided to move to another location. This time, we were on a beach. And by beach I mean sand and
salt fresh water. And by beach I also mean “hot and sexy” photos. The cloud and the sun played nice with us this time around. Hola!
This was a very fun shoot. We all got to be outdoor and next to the beach for more than half a day. We didn’t leave Tahoe until 9pm. On our way back, we started telling ghost stories in the car, and I got to scared the living hell out of the girls. They screamed so loud hahaha; I wish I’d recorded all that. Good times 🙂
I’d like to specially thank Kiem for organizing this fun shoot. We need to come back to Tahoe next winter so that we can shoot with some snow. Don’t forget to check out his Facebook, Flickr and 500px, he’ll have some photos from the shoot on there as well. Eventually.
