First International Photo Shoot

Today I did my first ever international photo shoot in Tokyo, Japan. Up until now, I have had very little experience with both fashion photography and working in a studio setting. Thanks to Stephanie (our model) and Mai (our makeup artist), I was able to practice both today.

Through Mai's help, we found a small studio in Tokyo - White Studio. This was very easy to get to - I only had to take 1 train with no transfers to get to the studio. Mai was very helpful - she even met me at the train station to make sure I didn't get lost. I am so glad I was able to find such a great makeup artist to work with in Japan.

I met Stephanie through Model Mayhem. She is a great model to work with. Great smile, very easy to work with, professional, and really tall!

As an added bonus, we were also able to have a hair stylist (Miho) come in to do Stepanie's hair so we could do 2 very different looks .

Our shoot took about 6 hours to do 2 different looks and overall, the results came out much better than I'd hoped. I consider myself very lucky to have found such talented people to work with in Japan, and I hope I will have the chance to work with them again in the future.

Grow Cube

Came across this Flash-based game tonight and before I knew it, I had lost several hours in it. Is it a game? A puzzle? Life simulation? Frighteningly addictive? You bet.

Apparently it's the latest in a series of games from this creator. Have to keep an eye on this one.
