Sunset Bath

Location: Some open field next to Lexingtone Hotel – Narok

Gadget(s): Nikon D3300

Accessories: Godox Softbox Grid, Yongnuo 560 III

Last week we turned a local Kinyozi into a studio. This week we turn a grazing field to be a sweet spa where the models bathed in the sunset. As usual, I start with ‘others’ 😂

As usual pastor Olonana has to start blessing the venue with his, “Mbinguni kuna shungwa na ndimu” song.

And then we needed one mshungaji to test the camera settings.

Kumbe he reads some politics and has seen those Bwana Tumbos clasping their hands on every photo they take.

THE END – I mean the end of such faces. The camera is now tested. The settings are okay. Now to what brought us here.

Wakaar: Aki woiye si kesho tutaenda shoot juu leo kumenyesha?

Me: Tutaangalia

Wakaar: Aki paliiiz! Angalia venye tulikuwa tumebeba nguo

Me: (Almost joking about it, then I realize my pastor is watching) Tutaangalia…

Wakaar: Aki wooooiye…

Here goes the woiye girl 😁

And what’s with this pose? Or is it because it was Sunday?

Now we get into Phase II. Elsie leaves us speechless.

That was my first pro-bono shoot in Narok. I was launching a new pricing line that was friendly to university students especially those in Maasai Mara. I really had fun, it was so nice to work with such amazing souls who never called or texted to ask, “Aki zile photos unatuma lini?” – I can tell you for free that photographers hate this question.

Keep tuned. I will be doing more themed shoots in a couple of days.
