Are you not tired of my face yet? Yes? Good! I have a couple more vain pictures that I hope you still have the patience to look at. I know, I know, you guys can only take in so much. I’m cooking up new interiors so I think we can already turn the tables around next time. Time for more Architecture!These photos are from Pao, on his take on low- key photography. The high key version of these can be found here. Which is hotter? Haha.
I haven’t been everywhere. In fact, I haven’t been anywhere. I flew out of the country once, just a few months ago, and it was one of the best experiences I had. The trip made me realize how little I have experienced life and how much I am suffocating myself inside my own tiny bubble. Sigh. Traveling is one of the luxuries I wish I can afford more in the future – one that I will certainly work hard for.
“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.”
My insights about traveling (or my lack thereof) were brought about by the self- portraits I recently took. My overly-eager-in-post-processing self even took the extra mile to make the photos in line with this post’s themeThe outfit reminds me of a gypsy, a lost wanderer, a brave soul – someone who would not think twice of going to new places, someone with a desire to explore the world, someone I would want to be like, in some extent.
The top is the exact same one I wore previously. This is an attempt to show you how mixing and matching can create two different looks with the exact opposite vibe. In fact, everything I have here has already appeared in past posts. Can you pinpoint which ones? 🙂
“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”
HYPE THIS LOOK ON LOOKBOOK!
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!
One model, two photographers, all first- timers in a studio shoot!
It was fun learning, I never thought lighting can be so complicated! I thought when you have a backdrop and different lights on stand, beautiful professional photos can magically appear in the cameras, but it was really more than that.
I kept my outfits simple and accessories minimal. I even wore jeans for the first time in a shoot. Not that I don’t like wearing pants, I just don’t think they are flattering to me. But let’s see when final photos are out, shall we? For now, here are behind the scene shots. 🙂Thank you Pao Tulalian and girlfriend Ann Sayson. Also thanks for coming along, Daryl! 🙂
