    I was invited to do a shoot in this beautiful boutique hotel in Chinatown area of Bangkok. The place is called Shanghai Mansion. It is one of the most beautiful bourtique hotels here in Bangkok. In order to go with the settings in this hotel, we looked for a Chinese-looking girl to be our photo model and Ann was chosen among a list of selected names.

    Shooting started in early afternoon and ended 7 hours later, with some regrets that we could not cover every location available. Will definitely go for a second shoot-out some time later, if there is a chance.

    Equipment used:

    • Nikon D90
    • Tokina AT-X DX Pro 124 12-24mm f/4
    • AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G
    • Nikon Speedlight SB-900
    • Nikon Speedlight SB-600
    Total: 18 images

    Thank you for viewing my images. Special thanks to Ann for being our photo model and bearing with me for all the difficult poses I asked her to do.

    The girl is absolutely beautiful!

    I like the coloring in the photographs, at least most of them.

    The settings/backgrounds are nice, although some of them look kinda cluttered and disconcerting in the photo's.

    She must have been a trouper as a model, some of the poses in the photos look unnatural and uncomfortable.

    Better than most of us could have done, including me.

    Reminds me of why I am better at shooting motorsports...lol

    Thank you all for your comments. I appreciate all your replies. Keep them coming. And yes, these shots were made with 2 flashes. Only Pic 02 was done with ambient light. :)

    Love pretty much all of them :)

    The only one i'm slightly off about is image number 14, just because it's a funny angle. Still a good photo though.
