I'm Setting Up A Portrait Studio!

30 March 2009

And my dad is funding everything. I can see that he is pouring all the time and support to something he was very passionate about. Note: was very passionate about. It's not that he doesn't like it anymore. It's reality speaking, he has work, he's getting old and he has other plans for the future.
So now, that I have the medium and the interest, he thought why not do it again .This time, through his daughter. I have been very much into portraits since I got my DSLR. Even with a digital camera, most of the time, I take snapshots of people, friends and families. It's one of the best subjects around that will not require so much time and money.

This Studio project? If you think that it is going to be a waste of money and time, since I have no background. This is how we do things...Believe me, anything that will make us smile and happy. Besides, there's not a day within the week that we don't take pictures. By the way, my mom is a commercial model before, and my sister studied modeling in Abs-Cbn. They need to update their portfolios too. Right now, I am holding 2 portfolios of my sister Ella, 1 with our cousins. And just recently my sister Les, who had hers made.
These photos are made with resources I have at home. Lamp shades, a black cloth for the background, hair and make-up by moi, the smiles by her (Les). I had to ask her to hold one of the lamps for some effect. And out of 50 pictures, I was only able to choose, 10 good ones. It was a bit frustrating after the shoot. 10 out of 50? But putting into mind the words of Rene Salta... I thought, I just need to practice some more and maximize every equipment used and search for better angles.

I am no photographer wanna-be. It just so happen, that I am very much into taking pictures and the fact that I own a camera. Why not right? And to be honest, I also wanted a portfolio for myself. I was looking for a new head shot to go with my sites, I can't find a new one. Nothing for me.
