Behind-the-scenes: Nikon Coolpix Shoot

Last week, I had a shoot for Nikon as one of their brand ambassadors. The shoot took place in this really cool furniture store / found objects gallery / art space / tea laboratory. Judging by the number of slashes, I think it’s pretty obvious how unique and full of character the place is. I just had to take a few photos to show you some of the quirky finds I spotted.

Everything is for sale! Check out the pencil decor!

More pencils! Recycled art are always the best.

Love the chairs!

And guess who I was with for the shoot?

None other than mother/queen becky (becky is Filipino slang for gay) herself, Divine Lee! She came in a cute polka dot romper.

Guess who else came in a cute polka dot romper?

Me! The shoot hasn’t even started yet and we’re already matching!

Make-up by Nanan Villaba and hair by Mark Baquiran. I wish I can get my hands on the MAC lipstick Nanan used on me. I need it in my life! It’s the cutest bright pink lipstick shade ever!

Hair and make-up? Check! Time to shoot!

The secret to perfect-fitting clothes? Clips! (Huling-huli ang chismis!)

I’m supposed to pretend I’m taking a photo of something. If only I take photos while doing this pose in real life haha! Sosyal!

Here I am again, pretending to be really fascinated with the plants I’m taking photos of outside haha! The camera I’m holding here is my favorite. It’s hot pink! Cuuuute!

And finally, a layout with Divine Lee herself! I’m in the presence of becky royalty! She’s so cool! I really admire her gay advocacy (among the many wonderful things she does). She deserves to be their icon (and everybody else’s). I wish she can teach me beckinese though! Laureen actually tried to teach me a few words before so I’m slowly learning. I now know what druvams, lafuse, lafang and lapoch mean. Okay, I’m going off topic, but I just have to say that beckies, especially Filipino beckies, are so creative. I mean just look at their lingo!

Anyway, back to the shoot.

Our theme is “free-spirited”. The style direction they showed us for the shoot was really colorful, as you can see from our outfits.

We did a few serious/fierce looks and a few smiling shots.

Divine is so pretty, don’t you think? And don’t get me started on the legssssss!

It’s a wrap! Divine and I with the photography team.

Thank you Nikon Philippines and Visions and Expressions! I can’t wait to use my new Nikon Coolpix SS1100pj! I’m so excited to use the built-in projector! More about that and the final shots from this shoot next time. :)
