Heads of Halloween

Head shots series from Lan kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong. 

Barbed wired in Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong

In the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong's business district also lies the heartbeat of Hong kong's night life, Lan Kwai Fong. The place to be on any given weekend, and when there is an event on like Halloween, it's party time! Be ready for an explosion of colour, excitement and an atmosphere you need to see to believe.

This was my first year to photograph Halloween. My goal for this project was to get up close and personal with my subjects. I wanted to keep a very consistent look throughout the shoot, therefore I chose to shoot only head shots focusing in on the detailed make up, crazy attire and the vibrant eyes!

The combination of my Canon 5DIII, 50mm 1.4 and a ring flash worked perfectly for roaming through the crowd.

One of my favourites from the night. 

After setting up and scoping out the crowd my assistant and I hit the street running. To use the images on social media, websites etc we need the models to sign a model release form. This form enables us to use the images online. As a gesture to the models each one received a high res edited copy of their image.  

My assistant did a fantastic job in getting all the required information and signatures electronically on the iPhone app, this is the way to go, no pen and paper to lose!

All up I managed to get around 30 images which I was really happy with. I hope you enjoy the gallery below.
