Our August Cover Girl
Today, it's not a very well-planned photoshoot session but Olivia proved to be the really good model to offset that.

Such a long time never spent time with Olivia, be it chatting or movie-watching. Blame myself for being lazy and too passive. When it comes to photos though, ha ha, different story.
First time going into her house, and impressive furniture and spacious house! In addition, Olivia's mum was so nice she treated us oat drink. Friendly Olivia's elder sis too. Paiseh, kacau olivia and her family for such long time ha ha.
We experienced with Ailin's friend's halogen light. There were 3 of them but one of them went out of order and they were just too hard for us to control, and they got heaty so easily. Tried mahjong paper, tracing paper to diffuse, but couldn't get good results, so just bounce the light off the wall. Luckily Olivia was patient enough and also 'professional' to let us experience. Eventually most of the nice shots are beside the window, using natural light and reflecting it with reflectors, again. Reflector worked like magic again.
The session went on from 9am in the morning to 3pm. Of course, I included the chit-chatting time and transferring photos to the disk.
More photos soon.
So sorry Olivia, you deserve better photos. :(
P/S: Yesterday was great too... great chatting with best friends from primary school whom one of them I did not meet with in the past 9 or 10 years, almost one decade.
