I had a project in Advanced Photography class wherein we had to take portrait shots of a single person and present it to class. Being the crammer that I am, I did my homework a day before it was due. I had no time to scout for models so I asked my sister, Negene, to do it for me instead.
I couldn’t think of a theme for this project, so I chose the most gasgas one - A Day in the Life of Negene
This is the full-body shot, my least favorite in the set mainly because it has awful lighting. I had to shoot fast cause my camera was running out of battery and the whole village was out of power (great timing, right?). My professor liked this photo cause of the tree behind her, though! He said she looked like she’s wearing a big crown.
Fun fact: That longboard she’s standing on isn’t hers. She was supposed to use her own skateboard, but one of our neighbors approached us and asked my sister if she wanted to try his longboard. Apparently, the man owned a skateshop somewhere in Makati. He gave us his card and even told us that he’d give us discounts if we want something in his shop! Ha! The perks of being neighbors with businessmen :p
This is supposed to be the half-body shot - supposed to, being the operative word. I don’t think I did it properly, lol. Here, I just made my sister sit in one of the benches around our area! I like this photo cause she looks pretty in it!
This one’s the close-up shot. It’s actually my favorite cause I liked how the colors turned out! I had to force her to swim in the clubhouse but she gladly agreed to do so, anyway! :)
So what did you think of the pictures? :) I really need someone’s opinion cause I want to do good in this class!
