Arcade “Brandon Woelfel” Style Photoshoot

This is more like an experiment photoshoot and I learned what worked and what didn’t work.  It is different than Brandon Woelfel’s style because he edits everything in photoshop, his temp on the cool side, his tint is on the red side (which makes it pinkish), and he shoots with Nikon 50mm 1.4 & 85mm 1.4. If you read my previous post, you know what lens do I shoot with.  And of course, I edit everything in Lightroom. For this photoshoot, I try to be more colorful and bokeh all the lights. In the end, I did use the photoshop for retouching the face (color & texture) and played with reflection.

I know Whitney for very long time because we waited tables together a long time ago. And she is generally a down to earth person and willing to help with anything if she could. For her outfit, I dressed her in 70s gold jacket & 90’s grunge velvet dress. The hair is done by Sabrina Parrish.










I screwed up the below photo. I edited it so I remind myself that DON’T SHOOT WITH HIGH APERTURE!


I added this photo again because I noticed WordPress app doesn’t include the featured photo. >_>



Want to see an old picture of Whitney? I took it back in 2015 for fun. Overexposed midday harsh light photo. It makes cringe now. lol

    1. Hi Kaley, the arcade has good nature lighting. I made the model facing the window, the neon light, or the gaming machine’s light. I hope this helps. 🙂
