Attended a portrait workshop organized by Zamrud (nickname in Shutter Asia). Learnt some of the basic studio lighting techniques and the various type of lighting in portraiture. Some tips on photoshopping was included but we ran out of time to get more tips from Zamrud.

This shot of Nadia the model for the day was done using "glamour" lighting. Basic skin smoothening applied on the final image.
