As progression goes, you sometimes have to step out of your comfort zone and try new ideas. The only way you can compare yourself to yesterday is by doing something different today. With this set, I tried just that. My constant attempt to become better at this photography game pushed me to experiment with new editing styles. It was a back and forth struggle as I was going through the motions of considering just defaulting to my 2015 style. I think I've finally found something that worked out. And of course, I had to try it out on my go-to muse when I want to test new things.
Ladies and gents, let me re-introduce Miss Alyssa Esteban.
If you've been following my work since 2015, you'll recall that I've been shooting with Alyssa for some time. She's played a big part of my progression and I can see that she'll continue to be part of it whenever I gain more knowledge. It's always a great time shooting with her as she's open to try new poses, new looks, and new ideas. Also not to mention that these looks came from her own closet. Pure. Fire.
I also had the honor of having Nate Balico and Raul Singson on set, in which they collaborated with the complete look and style of the whole shoot. They're the reason why I got into this fashion game and they themselves own a ton of knowledge when it comes to styling. The last piece they put together was completely off the top of the head, which I enjoyed shooting very much.
This year, I aim to keep stepping out of my own comfort zone in order to try new things. Let's see where I can go and how much I can progress.
Let's keep it different. Let's keep collaborating. Let's keep creating, friends.
