Creative Shoots

Mountain Gypsy

March 31, 2014

A shoot from up in the cold mountains. The sun was there but all we can feel were the fresh winds. On a little roadtrip with my family a month before, I couldn’t help but notice all the vivid yellow flowers growing on random fields and corners around Tagaytay. I’ve been wanting to go back and hold a shoot there for weeks before I finally hit the road with a talented team, headed to the south and made it happen. All of it went beyond imagination. And because adventure shoots are always unpredictable, a second set shall follow. I am smitten, quite honestly. It’s been a while since I’ve been utterly proud of work I’ve done.

    WOW! To think that we were classmates during high school. In all honesty, I think that the photographs taken are as stunning as the person in them. They have beautiful composition and make the subject stand-out. My favorite would be the fourth since it is the photograph that gives more of a mysterious feel and makes the seer think of what are behind those mysterious eyes.

      Hi Noelle! I appreciate your dropping by my online journal. It’s nice to meet mutual friends of friends online — the world is becoming smaller and smaller and I’m mostly happy about it haha. Thank you SO much for your kind words and your input on my photographs. My favorite is the fourth photo as well and for the same exact reasons! Some people get a little bit distracted by the fact that one of her eyes is covered, but I’m glad most think the way you do. I like seeing little imperfections in photographs as well just because I think it’s less about the technicalities and more about what/how the photo makes you FEEL that really matters. I’m glad you think they are stunning, you are too nice ♥

    Good blog! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
