I love outdoor photos!
How can I not? I can sit on the grass and look anywhere but the camera and boom, great picture. Not because of my prowess in modeling, if I possess such a thing, but the credit mainly goes to the sun for illuminating my skin in all the right places and to the trees for swaying in the background with a grace that beats mine. Of course, the skills of the photographer is a given, also the amount of difference post processing can give. But you get me, don’t you?
Removing my precious sun and nature backdrop, how can I survive? Haha. I have always been intimidated with studio photo shoots. No yellows, greens and blues for distraction, I am on my own. But, I am always up for the challenge and the challenge includes dressing up in simple pants and white shirt. Nothing fancy, as photographer Paolo Tulalian requested.
Final photos, you say? The first few ones below are from Daryl, on my take of the basic jeans and top combo. I opted for a button- down with cut- out details on the shoulders. I have been seeing such a style for a long time now, finally I got my hands on my own. And because I like it so much, I instantly got it in two different colors. I can’t wait to show you how else I am planning to style it, there are countless of ways!
Have you guessed? Yes, it was him.
Whenever I need to have something creative done, the first person I run to is Daryl. He designed the Silly Inspirations header too but it was originally made for someone else. Noticing it was unused during my time of need (for a new site design), I pleaded him to let me use it. And the rest is history.
This time though, I was the client to be pleased. (Feels soo good, and it was for free! Haha.)
Aside from having (only) my name on it, I want it to reflect what the blog is going to be about – Fashion + Architecture (+ Extras + In-Betweens). If you haven’t noticed, the prints on the letters are alternating fabric patterns and architectural details. For the fabric patterns, he specifically asked me to photograph my own clothes. I’m guessing the architectural details were from his own photography. Correct me if I’m wrong, Daryl. 🙂
I knew this hat is going to be useful for the letter “O”.
I asked him to make me something professional (as this blog serves also as my portfolio) but fun and colorful at the same time. Achieve?
