Waking up is hard to do

I recently did a quick shoot for Mandaue Foam, a local furniture brand. The concept was: with mattresses this comfortable you’re alarm clock has met it’s match. This is my favorite from the shoot.

Yes, that’s Kryz playing sleeping beauty during the shoot. She nailed it, don’t you think?

Quick Update

Bokeh Christmas Portriat

Kryz Uy’s Christmas Bokeh Portrait. Taken at Dahilayan.

Wow, it’s been awhile. Sorry for the long absence but I’m backkk and with so much to share.

First of, I was thinking of making a Christmas bokeh tutorial. I know, I know, it’s been done before. But it’s really just a pretty effect. And whenever I see photos like this (see above) I get all warm inside. So if this is something you’d like to see, hit me up in the comments and I’ll put something together.

Portrait of a Horse

I got it in my head that I really wanted to photograph a horse. The last time I had the opportunity to photograph a horse was in Inner Mongolia and France. Now I was itching to do it again. Luckily I found a stable and went for a quick visit and got a 5 minute portrait of this gorgeous guy.

Shotgun Chef

More from my last trip to Manila. This entire shoot makes me think Sabs should be a movie star. She has this natural ease and glamour which made taking her photo so easy and fun. This multi-talented gorgeous gal shares her food adventures on Shotgun Chef, is my fellow photobuggy, and is the brains behind the online food market, The Munchy Market. My favorite is… the black and white of course.

Couldn’t decide on the color for this shot. Which do you prefer? Left or right?

 

 

Sabs, you have a heart of gold and I’m so lucky to have you in my life. x

Ink Happy Thoughts

Meet Boogie, the author behind inkhappythoughts and my fellow photobuggy. I mentioned here that the last time I was in Manila I couldn’t resist taking the time to take some photos of my gorgeous friends. When I asked Boogie if I could take her photo she replied, “Ohh, black and white?” Oh Boogs, you know me so well.

Boogie is one of the must charming, funny, and sweetest people I know. I’m so blessed to have her as a friend. Sniff, cheesy moment.
