Emy and Pau Camera Used: Nikon D5100, 18-55mm lens
So finally I had the chance to take pictures with real people. For a start , I met Emy and Pau, two nice girls who were an ease working with. The experience was all about firsts. Handling these models and telling them what to do was still a bit awkward for me. I was used to taking pictures of dolls and I don't really instruct them , I just move their hands,make them turn around or tilt their bodies but this time I can't do that with these girls. These are real human beings so I tried to give instructions. Good thing. I was with three other Photographers, Jenny , Peejay and Monique made my work at lot easier. By the way all these are Peejay's idea. It started as an invite and ended as a good experience.
THE STORY BEHIND THE VENUE
It was a really long story finding a venue. Peejay's initial concept was with the mangroves but apparently when we we're at the venue, it wasn't what he exepected so we decided to move to a different location, somewhere the girls and Peejay himself are familiar and certain we could begin. Unluckily , the place was closed down from visitors and has been restricted for public use so that means we have to find another place. The last stop was Emy's suggestion but we ended taking photos on a spot nearby. It was at Looc Mactan and it wasn't really that bad, actually it was great. The Tropical Ambiance was inviting and we started to unpack our bags and the next thing , we we're having a good time taking pictures of the humble scenery.
FULL COLOR SHOTS So here are the final outcome of our short but fun photoshoot! I call these Full Color simply because color and texture we're enchanced to give the picture a more lively and vibrant look.
THE DRAMA I tried to do something more than just enchancing color and texture. I thought of adding Drama to it. So here goes... hehehe :) Please bare with me, I'm amateur on this stuff so I just let go of what I can think of.
VINTAGE AND BOKEH
These last set of pictures including the very first one you saw on top are simply out of experiment. I had asked myself what if I edit these pictures in the same way that I edit my barbie dolls. So I decided to give these a vintage look and added some bokeh. The result? well you'd be the judge of that.
if you''re wondering who's Emy and who's Pau? The girl in violet is Pau or Paula and Emy is the one in black. I had a great time with them Both we're very humble and easy to get a long with. What's memorable is that this was Emy's fist pictorial as a model and this was also my first photo shoot with real life models. One day I will go back to this page and remember how I first started but what will forever stay is the experience and the friendship I gained from Emy and Pau. Two beautiful girls with beautiful hearts that I have shared making photographs in this journey called life.
