Here’s another shot of Ezra and I with our Batman and Joker shirts. We have matching self portrait this week Look at Ezra’s scary face, lol.
We had fun shooting this, even though we had to rush it. I think we were done in about 10 minutes because we had to move on to our next self portrait idea. We shot about 3 self portraits each that day, so we couldn’t spend too much time on just one concept. But I think this turned out great
I don’t usually take my self portraits with another person, but I just love this shot of us. We bought these shirts last month at American Boulevard. We were wandering around the mall and we saw that they were having a sale. It was really crowded inside the shop so we got separated while looking for things we like. After a few minutes, I made my way over the cashier to pay and found Ezra in line already. The funny thing was, I was holding a Batman shirt and she had a Joker shirt in her hands. It happened randomly, it’s not like we had a chance to talk and plan this while we were inside the shop. Does this confirm the fact that we are natural enemies? And that she’s the evil one and I’m the good guy? I think it does XD
(I was actually looking for Captain America or Ironman, but I couldn’t find them)
The quote in my title is from the BBC series “Sherlock”. The recently released some teaser photos and the network announced that the 3rd season will begin airing on January 1, 2014. I can’t wait!
You guessed it, another old shot that I had lying around. This was taken this back in July, and it was one of my favorite shoots from that month. Unfortunately, I loved it so much that I couldn’t decide what to do with it. Every time I edited it, I felt like I wasn’t doing the photo justice so I just close it again and edit something else. Our original concept when we shot this was that her dress would look like it was on fire. I was planning on blending the fabric into some flames during processing, but I had a real hard time executing it in Photoshop. I tried numerous times, but the flames looked too fake, so eventually I gave up. In the end, we decided to just keep it simple and this is the result.
The “dress” Ezra is wearing is actually just a long red fabric I bought back in June. She wore a reddish/maroon top and we wrapped the red fabric around her waist to make it look like dress. We used a black sash (which was part of her graduation dress) to tie the two together. I tweaked the colors of the fabric and blouse in Photoshop to make it match a little more, giving us the illusion that it’s a dress. The fabric wasn’t that long either (I think it was only 3 yards), so I took several shots and blended them together to make it look like she has a really long train.
It may not have turned out like how we pictured it, but I still really like the final image. I do see some things I want to change, so maybe I’ll go back and edit this photo again when I get the chance
The background I used came from sylwia from deviantArt. You can check it out HERE.
Here’s another old photo I’m suddenly reviving. If you thought that uploading old shots from October was bad, then you won’t be too happy to hear that this was taken back in July. (And from the way things are going, it looks like I may even have to revive some of Ezra’s old photos from last May … but hopefully it won’t come to that.) I actually finished editing this photo a week after it was taken, but I never uploaded it because I thought that my hands looks too awkward. And I’m not too happy with my facial expression either. However, since I did spend some time editing this, and I’m still about 6 weeks behind on this project, I figured I might as well use it too.
I’m not sure who said the quote in the title. I searched online and got a whole bunch of different results …
This was another photo that was taken back in October, when Amie, Kat and I attended the 2nd MOVE Symposium in Ilocos. We had a long lunch break on the first day so we decided to check out the Marcos Museum/Presidential Center nearby. We’ve been to Ilocos several times but for some reason we always forget to visit this place, so it’s good that we finally got the chance to go.
Those are plate numbers behind me and I’m pretty sure they belonged to Ferdinand Marcos (it was his museum after all). According to Wikipedia, the #3 is reserved for the senate president. There were also several plate numbers on the other side of the wall that had the number 8 on them, which supposedly is for congressmen/representatives. Marcos held several positions in the government before becoming president, so I’m not surprised.
Thank you Amie for helping me take this shot Pang ilan na to?
This photo was actually shot back in October, after my aunt’s birthday party (this was the dress she wore to the event). After we got home we decided to do some quick shoots and this was one of the photos we took. We never uploaded it because we didn’t like it that much. We thought she looked too awkward, so I didn’t even bother to edit it back then. But since she’s about 10 weeks behind , we decided that it’s not that bad and that we might as well make use of it.
A photomanip, finally~ I haven’t been able to do one since we’re focusing on catching up. Lately we’ve just been doing simple portraits, so I’m glad I managed to squeeze this in. Granted, it’s not my best work and I didn’t spend that much time on it, but at least it shows something besides a close up of our face. If I had more time to edit this I would probably have fixed the cage a little more and tried to remove the fake birds inside.
The dress she’s wearing here is her graduation dress from last year. And those shoes were a gift from Kurt last summer.
