Yoga in Liberty Square
This photo in front of the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall was taken on a recent shoot in Taipei. It was a great day, I love shooting accomplished athletes. Rather than dragging the shutter and having blur and strange halo — like the shot below — I shot an HDR (seven shot stacked) of the memorial, then I brought Helen into the frame and lit her with some speed-lights. I later stitched her into the HDR photo without the lights in the frame.
Sadly, I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked for the shoot but we still managed to get a nice variety of shots. Here is a quick shot in an MRT station. She was an amazing sport (would you pose in an MRT station?) and if I had taken the time to light the photo and wait for a moving train and crowds it would have been a stunner. We took this as I was rushing for the last HSR south, which I missed leaving me with a four hour overnight bus ride home!
