Meet Jane. Fun fact: Jane is my stepsister and is in university, she goes to the Raffles College of Design and Commerce and is taking a course in Fashion Marketing. She's in her second year right now, and so she has a bunch of projects that usually revolve around presentations, publications, advertisements, et cetera et cetera. Well she knows a thing or two about my love for photography, so more often than not, she would ask for me to take photos of her for a campaign ad, or maybe film a commercial for a fashion line, and it gets interesting from time to time.
This was a photoshoot we did in this beautiful setting we have in our neighbourhood. It was just a wide landscape, and every element in it kind of makes you think of a heat wave. The ground was dry, the grass was yellow, the trees looked tired, the light was vibrant and it gave our photos that 5-pm-afternoon-glow that I personally have always adored. A lot of work went into this shoot, and usually I love everytime my sister asks me to help her on projects like these because it's so fun and great practice for me as well. We made it fresh, new, and sincere. The name of the shoot itself that Jane wanted was "Bohemian Wonderland" (a little mainstream for my taste). I would name it "Vibrance", such as how we brought in joy in the land of drought, but that's just me.

Fun fact! The location had really nice trees but the swing wasn't originally put there in the first place. We made, yes, our own swing out of wood and this heavy rope, painted it white, and then made the flower decorations ourselves as well, so that was exciting.
And that's basically some of the good photos we managed to take (before it went absolutely dark as it was nearly 6 pm) edited in Photoshop, taken by my camera: A Nikon D3100! As you can probably tell, we're huge fans of Forever 21 ;)
I love doing shoots because at some point I might come across really good shots then I could stuff it into my portfolio for future purposes, which is great. This was just something I wanted to share with you guys, and I hope you enjoyed this post!
