Elegant and Edgy: Second Collaboration Post

Hi everyone! Last week, my photographer and runner friend, Tristan (you may remember him from some of my run posts and my first collaboration blog post) and I went around Manila to conduct our second collaboration post to try his newly bought 50mm lens.

And if I may say so myself, the shots turned out great! Read on below to check my most favorite photos.

We started off at Intramuros where we found a wide space to roam around. I wore my red leather jacket from Danier Leather on top of my black spaghetti strap and black shorts and a pair of runners to give off that elegant yet edgy vibe.

We had to stop with the shoot when the rain suddenly poured down. We had to wait for several minutes for the rain to pass before resuming the shoot. While doing so, we took several photos of my outfit without the leather jacket.

Because my friend also wanted to practice shooting portraits, I also have several close up photos which turned out to be pretty neat!

After taking just about hundreds (Lol) of photos at Intramuros, we moved to the next location – SM by the Bay to catch the sunset and to help Tristan practice night shots. This was also when I changed into my second outfit which had a brighter and more elegant feel to it.

While there were more people here as compared to Intramuros, I mustered enough courage to still pose for photos thinking that these people would probably not remember me anyway. Lol.


And finally, we also got around the carnival area by the bay so Tristan can practice more of shooting with bokeh effects.


After the shoot, Tristan and I had dinner before finally going home.

and contact him from there.

Do not worry, he does not bite but he will tell you how you can look good in front of the camera.

Thank you once again, Tris, for inviting me to do another shoot and for all the good photos you took!
