Happy Birthday!

Today is the day that I came into the world, and I decided to spend it capturing myself!

As I am now, in all my splendor. Originally I had planned to share two studio photo shoots, but I felt that the photos from the first session were only good for IG. And that was after slapping a filter to them! In my defense, this was my first time giving a reflector a go. Using one was fun but for the reflector that I have, having at least two extra set of hands available is a must!

Maybe I’ll treat myself to a reflector with a handle on it for my birthday later this week. I already joined The Beginner Photographer Podcast today, so why not?

Either way, I am super happy how these photos that I will share with you all turned out! Needless to say that I am still a work in progress, but I am happy with that too. If I’m not working on improving, then how will I ever improve? Thank you for visiting my site and I look forward to sharing more developments with you all soon!

Playing With Color

Okay, I think I’ve got the hang of this monthly posting business!

Not really, but I have accepted that I will always be a work in progress. Which reminds me of a few photos that I took on a company trip to a temple recently. I spotted a worker sweeping and wanted to see what develops later, so I took a few candid shots.

Tonight I finally uploaded the photos for editing and tried out a vibrant, almost comic strip like charm while using Adobe Express. And I loved the end result! Though the more classic, rustic edit came out nicely as well, which is why I shared both of them in the slide below.

In 4 days time, I am suppose to be shooting a few gorgeous women in Anyang Art Park. It’s just on the outskirts of Seoul (thank goodness, because I honestly don’t think that I can handle any more of that place right now). The park in fact was originally a theme park (I believe) so there are all sorts of funky and fun spots for taking great pictures. I’ve invited a few volunteer ‘models’ for this shoot, so I’m hoping at least 5 or 5 of these ladies can make it out.

The theme that I thought of for this shoot is how I came up with the name.

Keep your fingers crossed that the shoot goes well and that I manage to get some outstanding photos!

3 Months is too Long

To say that I need to get better with posting, at least monthly, would be the understatement of the year!

The good news is that I have, in fact, been taking plenty of pictures. As far as me editing and posting them onto my social media accounts – not so much.

Though from now on, I will promise to do better. I have to if I want folks to see my work and to keep building my portfolio. Speaking of my portfolio, here are a few photos that I took in Seoul.

No, I am still not a fan of the city, but I have to admit that the location was nice. And the people that I met were pretty cool too.

Except another post filled with photos soon to make up for my long absence!

Humble Beginnings

Please be advised – these photos were taken with a backup camera out of boredom and before I got myself situated with a more serious editing software.

Needless to say, they are not the best work. Though the day I took them is what is most important. On that day I decided to officially launch Soprano Musings Photography.

I am still learning and that is the number one reason why I have decided to take photos this year for absolutely no charge. So now I am looking for models and scouting different locations all over South Korea to challenge myself.

This website will document the journey and I can not wait to see what develops!
