New milestone and YouTube Chanel for mpStudio

whoa! 200+ likes on my facebook page! To celebrate, I decided to make a speed edit video of my favorite light painting photography on Photoshop. This couple of weeks have been crazy! First a road trip down Calgary and living in a hostel, then meeting Renee Robyn from Renee Robyn Photography, and getting a chance to eat dinner beside her and talk to her for hours about photography and life!  Not only that my mpStudio Photography YouTube channel was finally born a few days ago! There are so much I'd...

Light Painting Photography in Edmonton

A light painting photography day (night to be exact) like no others! If you've followed the last post I messaged the good people down at University of Alberta Photography Club for a shoot focusing on light painting photography, and managed to grab whole bunch of people along with a few of my friends to this shoot! The whether was definitely not as cold as the last day, and it was around 10pm when we started, and we played around and chatted till really late before we really got...

Portrait Session & Posing

Had a great portrait photography session right in downtown Edmonton! Lindsey was my last scheduled friend this summer who was kind enough to let me try out poses and play around with lights (which by the way I have just purchased) to gain more shooting experience shooting portraits. I'm also going to tap my experience into one of the greatest portrait photographer debate: To pose or not to pose your subjects? I have scouted this spot since the first day I began scouting for portrait locations, and it's at a really...

Bridesmaid Photo Fun

Went down to Sherwood Park for a photo session with these ladies. I was contacted by one of the bridesmaid and was asked to do a photo session with just the girls a week before Oli's actual wedding. What an honor! In my opinion, I think the key to a successful relationship/marriage lies largely on the married couple's friends and family as well. These bridesmaid are definitely just as important to this session as the bride to be! So I sort of decided to leave Oli the bride out as the...

Portrait Session in University CCIS in Edmonton I mpStudio

What an amazing photo day with my two dear old friends and the amazing Sara! I met Sara through Dani who is also assisting for me in this photo shoot. Sara is a young lady just finishing up junior high, but already has a contract with a modeling management company. She's had some shoots and agreed to do a shoot with me for learning experience. Today marks the first day of me shooting with assistants, who by the way had no training so extra points to them for being awesome!So here, we have...

Portrait Session around University Area in Edmonton I mpStudio

Another portrait photography day in Edmonton! So Iris and I have been friends for quite some time now, and we would have dinner talks periodically to catch up, but today I've decided to talk her into a photo session. *Evil laughter* Iris has always been a pretty chill person so I already knew she would agree to be in my photos. I'm practicing for an upcoming wedding gig, so finding anyone with no modeling experience would obviously be a no brainer right?  Iris got off work and was dressed in business casual attire, so...

Portrait Session in Edmonton Canola Field

So here in Edmonton, July is finally snow and cold free! There are canola fields in full bloom all over highways in Edmonton right in the city! This is the beginning of my serious journey to get into shooting portraits. I've spent lots of time scouting for locations to do photo sessions and try out loads of different lighting techniques and force myself to survive in harsh lighting conditions too! I'd carry my gears to work to save travel and time. Having looked forward everyday, I shot in the rain, overcast days, gloomy...
