The golden hour light was looking particularly golden that day so we decided to take advantage of it by doing a mini shoot just inside my bedroom. My sister also bought this new blush that she wanted to play around in, but the golden hour was stronger than her Golden cheek tint lol.
Here are some photos from my Pentax:
This one was around 5PM or so? And we didn’t even need to go out or anything—this was just shot inside my room with open curtains to get all the light possible, and literally just using my closet for the background! 🙂
If you have a very blank background and a relatively simple subject (in this case, my model’s just wearing a very simple top, and her hair/makeup isn’t really that “loud” detail-wise), it’s nice to use something as props just to add more dimension in the composition. If you’re shooting on a very limited space like this one, adding something for a foreground will add more dimension in the photo as well.
Here’s some from my DSLR too:*
Ok, that’s all I have for now hahahaha. Let me know if you have any golden hour photography tips/techniques that you use! I would love to learn how you do your own warm glow magic!💫
*Let me know if you guys want to get the Lightroom preset I used for this one! (Simulated the colours from the film hehehe)🌞
2018 and yet another long-overdue post LOL. Let’s face it: no matter how I’ll try to make my new years resolution’s to post more stuff (and more often) here, I’ll still end up posting late stuff (or at least just until I finish with uni) hahahaha
OK anywayyyy: last year I was able to visit Singapore for the first time with my family. I had so much fun and just wanted to share photos from the roll here.
If I’m gonna be completely honest here, we actually wasted one whole day because I was throwing up in our hotel bathroom the moment we landed (my stupid ass ate so much whilst wearing my high waisted jeans, and combine that with turbulence and a bunch of other stuff—sigh. IDEK.🤦♀️)
Subways and train rides are a personal fave of mine when travelling. That’s probably because of the dystopian-themed urban living here in the Philippines, and I always loved seeing at least a little bit of what the daily grind’s like in other countries. (Hey, but for what it’s worth, what we may lack in the urban setting, we make for paradise-worthy beaches and getaways🌴🍹)
We toured around the city a little (which I did not get so much picture of, sorry), saw some museums, food strips, etc. But one of the things my sister and I were excited for was the Central Perk cafe. And as die-hard Friends fanatics, WE. LOVED. EVERY. THING. ABOUT IT.
I also may or may not have taken photos of all their signages because well why the hell not lol.
The food was great, as was their menu theme (dishes were all Friends-themed so we kinda geeked out and decided everything must be good lol). There’s also a mini studio display patterned to the show’s set design. UGH one of my fave stops in SG, defs.
My next fav place we went to was Gardens By The Bay’s Flower Dome. I’m basically obsessed with anything within the parameters of flora and fauna, and this place gave me all my flora dreams (I have yet to travel to places with flower fields and whatnot, but for now, this was it lol). This place had every flowers and plants my sorry lil bum couldn’t afford to see on a regular basis.
There’s also this pretty cool set up with a yellow truck that looked like it crashed on a pumpkin patch. V v dreamy
Last but not the least: UNIVERSAL STUDIOS!!!
This was the first time I’ve ever been to one of those top theme park names in the world (I know, it’s sad), and not one cell in my body was disappointed. I think this was my fave of all the places we visited in SG. All the rides, the attractions—everything! Ah, I was so alive in the Far Far Away section because ya know ya girl’s #TeamShrek (pls don’t judge lol).
Aside from the rides and all (of course), I couldn’t help but notice these faux window displays along the New York area. I didn’t get to take more pics because I was too busy having fun AAAND mostly because I was saving some shots because I was running out of films lol.
Anyway. I wish we had more time there than we had (actually, if we’re wishing for things, I’d wish for me to not have that stupid hyperacidity and maybe not wear my high-waisted pants to the plane so we won’t miss one whole day in the hotel hahahaaha ha ha ha). Idk, maybe if I save enough money I’ll get to visiting again.
(And yes. Their airport has a freakin sunflower garden and so much more…)
Long overdue–but I’m posting some photos from our Palawan trip last March. Just wanted to share some shots from the roll.
Quick story: for some reason, my first roll turned out to not have any photos in it– I figured that it might’ve failed to cling to the sprocket properly or something (even though everything was turning well the whole time but whatever). Anyway, so I lost 36 photos BUT OK imma just let that one go (cue tears).
We stayed at Astoria Palawan, where surprisingly their beach front & shoreline stretched so far, we didn’t really get the chance to swim around (we took photos around tho, obv). To be honest, the whole trip was more of an adventure type of vacation than the swimming type.
We toured around the city, but photos from there were supposedly all on my 1st roll (which Imma learn to let go but still pains me to this day huhuhu whyyyy ;____;), so it’s gone now. But I saw this SUPER CUTE gypsy themed cafe!!! ;___; Ugh, I wish I still have the photos but it was so perfect, I swear. We also went to Baker’s Hill, where i took a lot of Peacock photos (not the pop culture slang, I mean the actual animal).
UGH ANYWAY no use in crying over spilled milk.
After that, we did a little island hopping around Honda Bay and visited the underground river (WHICH IS CRAZY MAJESTIC. I don’t have photos from the inside of the cave because I don’t want to use flash and I was just really amazed and taking in everything–Nature is amazing yalls.)
It’s a shame that we didn’t have enough time to tour around Puerto Princesa more– our tour guide told us a lot more interesting spots to visit. I also kinda feel bad that we didn’t get to swim that much (the heat was I N T E N S E, even for a swim!).
But I’d definitely go back to Palawan; maybe visit El Nido or Coron. One thing’s for sure: I’m double-checking that film loaded on my camera.
