Posing on a Broad Daylight


The sun was literally burning when Paolo and I decided to take my outfit shots on top of our (unfinished) rooftop. The sun was so high that I could not even open my eyes as I pose in front of the camera. So while I was (learning) editing the photos, I decided to incorporate some texts and give you tips on how to pose on a broad daylight, especially when you cannot (literally) open your eyes (And you FORGOT to bring your SUNGLASSES which Angel reminded me haha). So let me share with you how I survived the heat and posed like Allison Harvard. Haha!
Easy Greasy! I had no choice but to keep my head down! However I had to do some things in order for me to project in an artsy was so all I needed to do was to: (1) project a dreamy face and (2) pretend that I was fixing something (in this case, my The Bead Diary headpiece). However, since I was so desperate to have at least one photo, Paolo and I had to device a way for me to smile infront of the camera.
1,2,3 then click the shutter! Tada!! Tsamba! I only have a couple of open-eyed photos as most are either closed, half closed or literally just looking down. So if you plan to be the tiis ganda like me and have yourself photographed sa initan follow these easy steps for the sake of having outfit photos.
Dainty overload with this wonderful House of Isla Handmade Bib Necklace. It was so pretty that it can make any outfit feel and look dainty, sweet and girly (Just like what I always wanted). The piece is so lovely so you would definitely see me wearing this again and again and again. (Get lots of crafty pieces on House of Isla's Facebook Page and Blog).
Hang Ten Top, Tomato Bangles, The Bead Diary Floral Headpiece
Thrifted Skirt
Lyn Shoes
So before I hit the sack and rest my body from a super tiring workout I had today, I'm leaving you with another tsamba shot with my dopey eyes. Its really the best you can have when you're striking a pose (and you're not a professional model) on your rooftop at lunch time while the sun strikes back at you.

Hope you like this post. Should I post more pseudo-tutorials? 

Much Love,

Super hassle nga pag sobrang tirik ang araw. Hassle din naman pag walang araw. Blogger problems haha! But you look effortlessly pretty in your photos! :)

Cool tips, ate! You can also go partly against the sunlight to purposely create a glare and have a "dreamy" photo. Like what I did with the first photo in THIS POST :)
