Hi everybody, CASS here! I haven’t updated for a very long time already, ’cause I’m sooo busy with my school projects and assignments, and it’s insane, I’m half dead already haha!
Actually, I originally wanted to write this post about my first photo shoot experience, right after I finish my photo shoot, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to squeeze out time for my blog TT But now I have a little time to catch up the posts that I’ve postponed, so enjoy!
So firstly, this was my makeup for the photo shoot, collab with a local street wear clothing brand called Kiz Urban
For me, the makeup was considered heavy, I think it’s because of the lipstick, actually I borrowed the lipstick from a friend of mine, because I don’t really use dark coloured lipsticks. In order to match with the concept, I put on the suitable makeup.
The photo shoot took place in the Bukit Bintang district, the weather was humid and we’re all wearing thick long hoodies. Plus, for convenient purposes, I was told to wear a tube top beneath, so you can imagine how I feel under the sun. I literally looked like someone who just came out from the shower.
These are some behind the scenes of the shoot, I was sitting in a fake vehicle which probably hadn’t been clean for who knows how many years, I’m trying my best to look professional while fighting the urge to let out a disgusted face haha, this was so funny!
My face changed back to ‘normal mode’ right away, after the photographers stop, I was thinking ‘how the hell someone can stand this weather under all these clothes’, while saying ‘it’s so hot here right?’, but they just looked at me awkwardly, and I was like ^~^
Luckily, the photos came out quite nice, thanks to the brilliant photographers and this ‘not so professional’ model haha! But this doesn’t look like me at all, I think my friends will also find the photos strange because I’m usually not related with the street vibe, but I’m trying hard nowadays.
And again, some more behind the scene photos. You know, as I’m not a professional model, and this is my first time trying out a photo shoot. I was so awkward at the beginning, ’cause I didn’t know a lot of poses, and I need to put a straight face on, and I mean it, no laughing and no smiling, just need to act cool and look as fierce as you could, , but as someone like me, I was laughing mad inside, but I manage to hold on my craziness.
Personally, I think I look better in black? What do you think? By the way, changing the fishnet while you’re all sticky and sweaty, it’s the worst thing ever…
My friend who accompany me to the photo shoot, and help me carry all my stuff, thanks hehe, Kenwin (Left)
My photo shoot partner, who looks mature but younger than me (what….), nice to meet you, Joe (Right)
As a first timer, solo shoots were already very difficult, and for someone whose a bit shy with strangers, couple shoots were a bigger challenge for me. But I manage to get more comfortable around my partner, after some self introduction and chit-chat.
I really like the photo’s that we’ve took beside the road, because the garment that I was wearing matched the background well, black & yellow stripes. The spade logo at the front was simple but cool!
Out of all the looks, I personally like the black hoodie the most, if you guys are interested, you can find it here.
Photos took by my phone:
I think they still look decent, even though the effects and quality of the professional cameras are obviously better.
The real meeee~~~~ (Someone photo bomb-ing ^^)
So, in my opinion, it was a very fun and interesting experience, that I encourage people to participate if they have a chance. Although it’s kinda tired, but I’ve learned some new poses and manage to meet some new people. So as a one-time experience ‘model’ this is what I’d like to say:
- Remember to bring your makeup products for some touch up.
- Better to wear something inside (that can be shown in public), because you may need to change in public.
- Bring a friend with you, if you don’t have an assistant. It’s more convenient, and it could be less awkward.
- You’ll need to be comfortable under the eyes of others, because most of the people will just stare at you when you’re doing photo shoots in public (I remember there’s one time which I sat down beside the road, and a lof of people in their cars turned around and stared at me, creepyyy)
- Lastly, enjoy and have fun !!!
