I missed shooting portraits. It’s one of the things that makes me sane and I have no idea how I lack time to do it these days. Maybe I need a new camera? New lens? New subjects? Just kidding. I also miss my friends and I haven’t even taken some of their portraits yet. U g h. I need to schedule with them right now.
Anyway, remember that blog post of mine where I told you about my first time shooting portraits? Well, here it is! My first ever shooting session with my very good friend, Chams! She’s one of the best, to be honest. (Also, you should check out her blog.)
We did this out of curiosity. We had cameras and then the next day, we went shooting together. I remembered how fun it was, roaming around the University of the Philippines and parking lots.
The sunset was pretty that day. Which added to the aesthetics I was aiming for. At first, I had no idea what I was doing. What setting is for this thing and what percent is for that thing, but there’s always auto. HAHAHA!
A spontaneous night with your friends is always the best. There’s not much to say except that neon lights add uniqueness and detail which makes your subject more attractive. Here are some of the photos that I took of different nights with these lovely people; Maricar, Gelo and Chams. I hope you like ’em!
I apologize if they got mixed up. I’m just excited to share my photos with you again.
Whenever I think of school, the first thing that comes to mind was hardship. I had a hard time in school because I wasn’t one of the smart kids unlike my siblings. I was the one to be expected to get by every year without failures, but I did graduate on time and that’s enough for me to be proud of myself. 🙂
aes·thet·icnoun: the artistic or beautiful qualities of something
There’s always something about the night. Its dark and quiet surroundings just makes you think. Then there’s the stars and the ambient lights that glows naturally without doing any effort, with the crickets making their sounds that just balances everything. That’s why Gelo and I decided to shoot at night.
It is often that I meet someone that likes portrait photography as much as I do. It is nice to have her practice it with me and so we’ve decided to do our second photo shoot. Yes, we did our first one already and it was a blast. At first it was awkward for me because I was very shy and I am not used to getting my pictures taken. I think we both felt that way at first, we’re beginners.
