Ezra tells me that this portrait was inspired by the museums she went to in Cebu a few months ago. They showcased Filipino culture and had a lot of old portraits of classic Filipina ladies. She thought they looked so regal and beautiful so she asked me if she could do something similar. Unfortunately, I didn’t go to the museum with her, so I didn’t really know what she was talking about (I haven’t really seen a lot of old classic Filipina portraits either). But after a quick search on Google, I had a pretty good idea of what she had in mind.
For this shot, I got to play around the fabrics I bought earlier this year. Since we didn’t have a Filipiniana terno readily available, we found a white dress from our closet and attached the long piece of white fabric to the bottom to give it some additional length. Then I took my black fabric and we taped it to the wall to use as a backdrop 🙂 Tadah~ I’m quite happy with how this turned out 😀
