Half-japanese Girls

Goddamn you, Half-japanese Girls

It was a hot night in our town. I realized that i never had a photo of myself, or a photo with my sister. So, i decided to have a shoot with my sister. First she wondered, how will we do it? I said, REMOTE! so, we were finding the right spot in the house. We need a white wall, clean surface, and presentable. We ended up in our closet door. It was white, it was clean, and it was presentable. The only problem is, its not that wide.

So, if you noticed our photos, we got crammed in space, but it was still fun! I fixed the settings of my dslr, tripod fixed, remote ready. First few shots were fail, literally. The framing was wrong, our faces got cropped drastically.

We had, 150 shots of fail! Because we used the canons kit lens.

It was hard to use the kit lens, the maximum aperture is 3.5, and its useless. Not enough. So i changed my lens, to Canon 28-70 f2.8L. Puuuuurfect! ISO 400 flash 1/16 shutter speed 1/8 Focal length 64 f2.8.

So we shot more photos with the remote, and finally we landed with some photos that we loved.

So we rested for like 5min. then we went back to the camera to shoot. We wanted it to be natural sisters, the real us.

So, the text in the photo, SHE/HER she for my sister because for me she is girly thats my sister. Her is for me, but originally i wanted to place, HE because i' am the exact opposite of my sister, i am boyish and i love being behind the camera. So, i got the HER from photograpHER. I hope you guys understood that part! :D

So there, thats the story of our evening. Again, a simple story, and a random shoot. I hope you guys will enjoy this short story. That's my sister, aika(right), and erika(me, right).

Oh yeah the title, Its from the song of weezer, el scorcho! Its about this hot girls breaking hearts. :D We chose the first line form the song, because we are half japanese girls :D But we don't break hearts :D
