Everything Seems Like a City of Dreams

When I was invited by Don Michael to do a shoot for Happyfingers Photography, how could I say no? Aside from being a fan of his style in photography, it was really flattering for me to be shot alongside popular bloggers like Shai Lagarde and Lissa Kahayon.

As a first-timer to do a whole set of photoshoot, I was really shy but I knew (and I was right) that I will be comfortable with the photographer. I saw his works already and as I would describe it, he takes the beauty in simplicity! I don’t need to put a lot of make-up, look high-fashion or anything like that. His style is just real and natural.

I also love that he would go for minimalist street photography. As he would say it, “The city is my studio.” Check his Instagram for more.

He directs but he lets me just go with the flow..he takes some more shots then would compliment me how it was easy this shoot was for him! He added that he doesn’t need to give instructions for poses that much! Haha yehesss naman!

The one and half hour shoot was really enjoyable! In between’s were chitchat about photography, work, common people we know, and catching up! We actually know each other since highschool, we were schoolmates and he was a year lower than me. Even then, he was really talented. He plays the guitar really well! Yeah you gotta check his Youtube account!

Again, thanks Don for this shoot! Your passion is amazing! 🙂
