This was shot in December for Runway Bandits with Irina (whom I loveeee working with) at a house we call the Midget Residence because the ceiling height is probably only about 2m. :b
I really love this lookbook, also because it's RWB, edgy and there's Irina, and a lot of white! Photographers out there (in Singapore), you gotta work with her! She's versatile and so creative with her poses, she keeps me inspired throughout the shoot. :)
It's officially been a year since working with RWB, they were my my first client/paid shoot since establishing beautifuladieu as a business and I'm so happy to have such a great client as a friend :> (SY, if you're reading this - we're bound for life now ok hahaha)
Looking at the past 11 lookbooks I've done for them, I've seen decent improvement in the way I shoot and edit. (In that period, I forced myself to learn Photoshop to edit better, and I guess I can say I'm pretty proficient in basic Photoshop now. :B) And whut, despite all the tight deadlines and juggling school work at the same time, I can only say that I love what I do more and more everyday. :)
Thank you for keeping me going!
P.S. If you have me on instagram/facebook, you would already know that I just bought a new lens for myself! *Drumroll* ..........yes, the 85mm f/1.2L! The same lens I rented for the Dear Laura shoot - I fell in love with it the moment I touched it the first time. I already had my first shoot with it yesterday with Earl Grey Party, and it was nothing short of fantastic! Here's a preview :)
So excited to be shooting with this beauty from now on!
