We've been invited to conduct a photography related workshop for our very own ShutterClique Photography Club of MSSC. On the first half, Emil discussed the classical lighting techniques and demonstrated shooting natural light and strobe lighting.
The first time Next Models Management's representative asked me to do a test for their model I wasn't able to accommodate it due to timing. When I had an opportunity to produce a shoot I made sure that everything is organized.
During my test shoot (with Chameleon Models Maksim, Leslie, and Paul), I got a chance to feature the creation of Vianca Corcuera of Fashion Institute of the Philippines' graduating class.
There should always be time to learn new things and time to develop or enhance new skills. In my fashion photography I do that through a test shoot. Just like in any production I do, one key ingredient is the model. This test is all about our model, Bruna from Ideal People Model Management.

Jerome and I had some discussion on a possible collaboration to shoot his creations for the fashion week but unfortunately it didn't push through. When I finally had time to produce a personal test shoot, I made sure that I feature Jerome Salaya Ang's creation here in Fashion-PRobe.
On location shoot is indeed complicated. This experience is yet another lesson for me on how team effort plays a big role in pulling a shoot off successfully. Melchor and I had already been preparing for this shoot a month before the Philippine Fashion Week – Holiday 2012. He picked the theme “After work denizen” for his fashion show – the same theme which we used as well, for his press kit.
Some of you might know that I have been shooting press kits for Melchor Guinto for quite some time now. As we continue learning with fellow photographers in ShutterClique Photo Club and me pursuing Fashion-PRobe, I invited Melchor to feature his Fall/Winter Collection on this test shoot.
