Young, Wild and Free

Model: Naomi Neo
Hair/ Makeup: Pearlyn Law

Naomi and Pearlyn are both people whom I've met through my photography journey over the last 6 months, and they are people I really like working with. Two months back, Naomi approached me because she wanted to revamp her site with new photos and she told me that she used to skate/cruise a lot. It was really really fun because both Pearlyn and I could tell just how much Naomi loves her board and skating, and I just let her be.....Her. No prizes for guessing where we picked up the supermarket trolley, but it certainly made us all crazy and excited and I happily pushed her around before continuing the shoot.

Also, I'm loving the two different looks on Naomi. Loving the darker side of Naomi. Kudos to Pearlyn for being awesome as always! (: I'm also amazed at how models are able to bear with the noon heat when being asked to put on outer layers **gives thanks that I'm not model material**. I really really like this series, I hope y'all like it too!


Can't believe February is almost over! There's just so much I've yet to accomplish but I'm glad I'm starting to break a little out of my comfort zone. And thank you to all nice and warm messages/comments coming my way to check if I'm alright. I'm much better now, and I promise to only be stronger from this very day onwards. There's so much positivity in me, I can't wait for all the good to start unfolding and to focus on nothing but work. I only pray for a restful sleep at night because I haven't been sleeping well at all, I dream lucid dreams and I wake up feeling all tired and sick everyday. 

May March be kinder to us all!

Hello girl!
I love photography as much as you and as I browse through your photos, I really enjoyed myself and thumbs up to you!!!

Do you mind sharing how do you acheive the nice bokeh on the background? If you're using a 50mm lens, wouldn't it be too narrow such that you will have to stand very far away?e (cos i have one too) :) I'm a noob here so hope you can help me!

Hello Hui Yan!

Thank you so much for your kind words and for leaving a comment here <3

I used a 50mm for the photos here! Are you using a full frame or crop body? I'm using a full frame body here, so the 50mm is not as narrow on a crop body ( I used to use a crop body)! 50mm on my FF is very close to what the human eye sees! (: You can read up about FF and crop online, just google it if you are unsure! (: If you are worried about the inflexibility because you cant zoom in and out, I would say it takes practice and I've gotten used to it already. In fact, the 50mm is my favourite lens to shoot with now! Hope that helps (:
