BTS: Alex + Ana

Here is a video of some snippets from my shoot with Alex, which mostly involves putting on makeup at the speed of light, and an annoying child:

And then there is this gorgeous BTS vid from my shoot with Ana, c/o the wonderful Carlos:

There are also some snippets in that video that give you a ~*~sneak peek~*~ into Vol. II of the shoot, hoho. Carlos takes SUCH great BTS videos; he also made one from one of my thesis shoots, which you can find here. I especially love his ambient shots; they really set the mood and give a more artistic feel to behind-the-scenes footage.

I've always loved BTS stuff from shoots. They're always so insightful and just generally fun to watch. Thanks again to Terry for helping out with BTS and the shoot itself with Alex, and to Carlos for the same with Ana's shoot!

Anette Vol. I

Fun little shoot with Ana today, with some special thanks to Carlos! Volume II to be up... someday. I used a different image host this time, because when I uploaded via Blogspot, the photos came out yellowish again. I really don't know if I never noticed the colors of my pictures coming off as yellowish back then, but it's very evident now and it's rather irritating.

Anyway, thanks for today, Ana and Carlos! We call these the "art... eh" shots. Because they're so... ~*~artsy~*~ But they're also very... arte.

First Shoot 2015

Happy 2015! Alex was kind enough to invite some of us over to her place to hang (and to indulge in yet another shoot request) today, and this was the outcome of the latter. It was a very simple and quick shoot, made all the more fun by the company I was surrounded by. I'm glad I got to have a shoot so early on in the year, as I feel like I wasn't able to do much of it during the latter half of last year.

I won't bother making a 2014 recap, because if I ever will blog about what 2014 was to me, I'd rather give it its own post, as I'd like to avoid putting any negativity in this post (2014 was just... sigh).

Also, for some reason, some of these shots look a little yellowish when I uploaded them on the Blogspot. Especially that last photo! It's really annoying. Please send help.
