Last September I did a shoot for Cebu Living Magazine. It was a pleasant experience. The people I met from Manila were warmer. Love it when I am not pressured to create images not of my liking. By this I meant, I am not asked to stand here or there and click. It puzzles me when I am commissioned to take photos but on shoot day there are like two or three people behind me, hovering and telling me to shoot this and that. Sometimes I am tempted to just hand over my camera and let them shoot.
But that is quite rude, is it??
Robot mode on, I do what I’m asked but my heart doesn’t do that sing song-y tune at the end of the day. It then feels like I’ve put in so much work. It’s different when there is creative freedom!
I shoot. I learn, relearn and the cycle continue.
