playful glamour

Photography & Styling: me!
Model: Carmela Fernandez
Make-up: Ana Tabligan
Location: Pioneer Studios

Here are some shots I took for my Digital Photography and Fashion Advertising final project. We were asked to come up with our own fashion campaign for a product/brand of our choice. I opted for bags and accessories, and ended up going for Aldo (check out the final versions here: 1, 2, 3). None of the items I used are actually from Aldo, but whatever, haha. I also didn't really have an exact theme in mind throughout the whole thing, but I guess "playful glamour" best describes it.

My gorgeous friend Carmela modeled for me. She's an aspiring model, which, I suppose, was a bit more of a challenge to work with than a professional one. It was kind of confusing on my part to stay conscious of the technical stuff while at the same time directing her poses, especially since we both aren't experts in the fields yet. But it was fun and a great learning experience all the same! Carz was such a trooper, and registered beautifully on camera, which really made the whole process easier than I thought it would be.

Lastly, a bonus photo: my teacher doing a Terry Richardson!


  1. She's a nice model indeed, I really like this shoot :)
