Light Hair

S-Rim-light-hair-DSC 8920-martosc

The search of rim light hair — found one.

Side Story :

I can’t really explain why, but recently I have a lot of interest in rim light (back light), especially on hair.

*In front of Ochanomizu Station, Tokyo, Japan

PS: I got myself a new toy. But, with the upcoming assessment (this weekend), I cannot play and explore it yet :-(. Looking forward to next week! Haha.

  1. Big fan of rim light myself and it definitely works very well on long, flowing hair. Nice shot, looks like a very determined lady. Btw, I’ll be looking forward to seeing some results from that new toy.

    • Please, don’t tease me, Rifqi :D…

      *luckily my wife has already hide the new toy, and refuse to give it until I finish the assessment hahahaha…

  2. Loooooovley. Nice to see a bright image in your collection :-) “Toy” sounds dirty. What is it then lens or camera?

    • Hahaha… I have to admit that this is accidentally bright. I was using f/2.8 in A-mode, not realizing the camera is in ISO 800, resulting overblown photo (even on maximum shutter speed).

      Toy? Not lens and not camera; it’s a flash unit. I want to learn strobist work :D… not for Street Photography, though :-)

      • I did some night street photography on Saturday. A flash would be nice. :-) But lighting wasn’t the main problem tbh… The biggest problem was managing to get a candid shot. EVERYONE was posing for me. I took 1 candid 5 poses… tsk tsk…

        • Hahaha… at least they were not mad at you because you were flashing them :D…
          Well, I’m not really comfortable to use flash on stranger — I’m no Bruce Gilden — so, as of now, I don’t plan to use the flash for Street Photography :-)…

    It’s right in front of your eyes, dear. You just have to look at the right place, or change your perspective/angle a little bit.

    Love the photo!

    • I don’t want to look. If I found it, you will just took it away from me again :D…
      I’ll play your rules and wait until the assessment :D…
