Beautiful Edge

_DSC4450

Time for something a little different! I recently got the chance to shoot a couple beauty pageants, Miss Asia Calgary and Miss Vietnam Canada, which is something new for me. I attended my first pageant last year so I at least had an idea of what to expect. That being said, these photos are of two different pageants, just posted together.

It’s also been quite a while since I’ve shot anything like this; these days all it is is cars, cosplays, and conventions for me, so this was rather refreshing. In fact, I used to shoot quite a bit of dance and live performances, so this definitely brought back memories. I also happen to shoot the head shots for some of the delegates which I have included some shots of below. When I first started photography I used to use lighting equipment all the time but then sort of just stopped, so this was a good opportunity to brush up on my studios skills as well.

Special thanks to my good friend Amy for this wonderful opportunity. If you would like to find out more about these pageants (of even compete in one yourself!), be sure to check out the links below (and the Flickr link for more photos)!
