As luck would have it, she was backstage having a break after delivering an inspiring talk onstage and talking to a number of interested bloggers about her success and worldly travels. She had asked one of the backstage hands to snap a photo of her, and naturally, I wasn’t going to let some poor lighting spoil a great shot.
I grabbed my Fuji X-Pro2, the 56mm, and got behind the iPhone and shot a few natural light shots. Showing them to Ji, I then asked her if she’d like to step over to my makeshift studio and use some proper lighting to capture her image.
To say that this woman is a natural in front of the camera would be an understatement. She stuck a number of beautiful poses, but this one, looking down, and highlighting her excellent makeup was my favourite of the shoot.
