It's a three storey building with the first floor for make-up, a huge collection of dresses were on the second floor and the third floor is the main studio where the shooting is done. One can select outfits ranging from Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Victorian era, formal and wedding gowns. One of my students accompanied us and stayed with them throughout the time spent in the studio as I had to leave early. At the end of the photo session, they were able to take several professional, yet 'fun' photos. With my friends' permission, I'm posting the photos taken by myself and the professional photographers.
More than an hour was spent in applying make-up. It's rather amazing watching the gradual transformation on my friends :)
There were some chinese couples and I instinctively took a few shots of them too :-)
Sandwiched between two Aussie beauties *_*
These are the professional shots. I made a few changes though...I spent a great deal of time using Photoshop for the first time. While peeps have moved on to CS3, I have Photoshop CS2 for almost a year now but haven't had the time to try it out. Needless to say I'm an amateur. I collated the photos (the ones I got from the professional photographers) and as you can see, it's far from perfect...but then...it's a good start! :P
Luv this shot *_*
