Yesterday's weather was nice and sunny with a touch of cool breeze so I head out to UP Diliman with Rejh, Carvs and Yvesse to do a shoot. A week before the shoot I asked Rejh and Yvesse if they could dress up as hippies and showed them some pegs for the shoot which I don't normally do but then again showing pegs makes things easier since I already know the look that I want and the poses that they should do. Armed with my ever loving camera Canndice with a 50mm 1.8 we wander the lush green scenery of the campus taking one photo after another. After shooting in UP Diliman we head out to LaMesa Eco Park for a change of scene but to our demise there were a lot of families picnicking and the sun was covered with lots of clouds so the lighting was pretty difficult since what I want is to capture a sunny, nature loving people but then again I was able to capture really nice photos in some areas and there we rested for quite a bit and head out to eat at Mister Kebab in West Triangle then we went straight home.
A big up to Rejh, Yvesse and Carvs for yesterday's awesome adventure.
