Photography: Project Girl Power

without comments

Last Wednesday, I had this sudden urge of doing a photo shoot. I don’t know what came to me but it was really what I wanted to do this weekend, something more productive than just hanging out home, watching TV and pigging out (hehehe). And so, I invited my girlfriends to do this project. Not much preparation was done. I basically just asked them to come to my house, bring their kits and do our thing.

Model: Alecks Domingo
Photography: Mella
Makeup: Creative Beauty by Allets Malabag
Stylists: Mella, Stella, Shiela and Alecks (This truly is a Girl Power project!)
Hair: Alecks and Stella
Location: Our living room

I am so happy to say that I love love love how this turned out. I bought my DSLR 3 years ago and unfortunately (for me) I haven’t really made an effort to hone my photography skills. I still use AV mode and always capture photos in natural light. I understand what aperture, shutter speed and ISO means but I don’t know how to make them work together (read: I don’t know how to use a DSLR in manual mode). Anyway, enough with my photography confessions. I’ll probably figure it out someday. What’s important is that I am happy with the END RESULT of this shoot. Hope like it too!

Life of Our Weekend

without comments

 

August 201010 

This is my nephew.
He loves to play a lot.
He doesn’t like wearing shirt that much because it makes him sweaty.
He loves his milk and drinks them five times a day.
He loves playground slides and he’s overly obsessed with helicopters (the real ones). 
He also loves chasing landing kites and hopes to catch one someday by himself.
He’s been making our weekends crazy and we’re enjoying his company very much!

P.S.
He loves watching Toy Story 3. Believe it or not he has seen it for about ten times.
