I, for one, am not so much of a ‘portrait’ photographer. Portraiture itself, to me, is a very deep and wide topic, and branches off to many, many types, understanding and views on what makes a good portrait and what is nothing but merely sexual exploitations. As a serious hobbyist, I take every shot with conscience and very, very seriously. Including portraitures. After much debates, discussions and exchanging of thoughts (aloud and silently), I kinda know what is my cup of tea and what is not.
Which over time, I hope to develop my very own signature shots.
Now the shoot. Linora is a friend of mine who is best known as the TV host of Bola@Mamak at Astro Supersports, the featured personality in the recent World Cup predictor, so-starred alongside Daphne Iking in ‘Belukar’ as well as acted in several local plays and theatres. So when Shawn suggested we do a model shooutout, Lin came to my mind.
We initially wanted to do something within the theme of ‘Vintage’ at an abandoned warehouse in Glenmarie. But in the end, tak jadi as there were too many photographers, all wanting to have equal amount of time and poses from the model. But still, we had a good time and I am glad that the pictures turned out pretty alright.
