Prior to the release of Queen Divas pictures. This pictorial came first. As a matter of fact. This is the start of it all. Emma Vouge has been a good friend of mine for more than 10 years now. We’ve actually seen each other grow and mature. Though she’s a lot younger than I am, it was easy for me to communicate and relate to her.
The funny thing is , she actually asked our friend Jamiel Nunez ( the make up artist in almost all of the pictorials ) first and Jamiel then asked me. Since both of them are dear to me, without hesitation, I said yes.
The Venue is actually not that far from where we live, actually it’s just around the area where we live. Hahaha! This has got to be the most stress free and most comfortable photo shoot that I have ever done. Probably because, I am so comfortable working with the model.
The Venue is not that far from where we live, actually it’s just around the area where we live.This has got to be the most carefree pictorial ever. There was no pressure whatsoever in making these shots. It's just like a regular "picture time" moment with your friend.
At the rooftop of the Condo where Em lives, there you can find tanks,two water tanks that I thought would be a good background for the pictorial. Em was very eager and this part just went on smoothly.
After taking pictures from the tanks. I asked Em if she had other outfits prepared . A White printed Sando and a pair of skinny shorts. Again, since this is not a really well thought of Pictorial. We made use of what we can find at the rooftop.
Silly enough that we even made use of the grumpy chair and the rusty dumbel. hahaha! We we're just so carefree,we didn't really care much on how it will look like. We we're plainly having fun.
This last set was taken downstairs. Although I mentioned earlier that Em lives in a Condo, it's not really the expensive, high class condominium that you're probably thinking of. It's a Condo Unit given to military families to live. Em's father is a soldier and having said that it's not really as well as you can think of. We all know how the government runs their properties. Anyhow, there's a bunch of trees and grasslands nearby so we decided to take pictures with those as well with Em's third outfit for the day.
These pictures are actually selected from all three sets. I thought it would give more depth if I use monotone settings.I like the simplicity and the authenticity of beauty that these pictures present. Em has a really beautiful face which is still undeniable even in black and white and Sepia tones. I remember someone told me that if you want to measure someone's beauty, use monotone settings. It is in these , that you can actually focus, not on the skin color of your subject but the details of her face. You will see how the contours of her face compliment the rest of her features.
It was an awesome afternoon with Emma Vogue. I had a wonderful time with her and this is definitely the the last time that I shall take pictures of her. There's going to be more of Emma Vogue in the coming days.
So there goes an afternoon with Emma Vogue. Jamiel and I we're pleased of the day's outcome. Till next time Em! :)
