Some not very exciting self portrait I did after Streetfest. Thought to do it since I had makeup on and the last time I'd done a session was 6 months ago. It was all random and extremely impromptu. Combing out my hair out of that mess after Streetfest into this was one epic wonder. Applaud me. XD
I would really do more self portraits if I were photogenic or pretty. Alas god doesn't give us everything.
Did a beautiful beautiful shoot for Playeur last Sat, I think it's for the Aug issue, but that is if the shots aren't killed because of MDA regulations, first. Oh well.
Shot a kid (with an adult model together) on Monday. She's 8 and has been modelling for 4 years already. Like woahhhh. I'm considering sending my sister to an agency too.
Bought PS3 with my best friend last week and been slashing in Dynasty Warriors 6 for a while.
Zhao Yun's story was so gay I couldn't stop laughing, my best friend rendered speechless. I spoke to a friend who worked in Koei about it and he simply drew me a comic strip of how his boss would say, "hahaha but it's not gay~".
And then a few days ago I discovered this wonderful function of watching videos on my iPhone. (Duh, I wonder what I'd been doing with it) Loaded in Gundam 00 and somehow it is much more bearable than the last 2 times when I tried re-watching the first episode on my laptop.
I'm starting on ep 7, catching it while on the road to and fro shoots. I think it's a bit unhealthy for my eyes, then again staying up till 4am every day isn't exactly healthy either.
The anime itself is actually not that bad, not as much as the initial impression anyway. Ah I guess I can only conclude after I finish watching the whole series. Afterall my nerdy self in childhood watched Gundam Wing some 70+ times and no matter how crappy the artwork or cliched some lines were it won't be so easily replaceable. *evil aura surrounds*
Finally started on the layout and design of my photobook. I've got a really wonderful designer, I'm happier than I should be about the layout because it's not even done yet and there's still a lot to change. But certain pages look so good together I'm so sooo glad. And because of this the initial plan of 40-50 pages is probably not happening. Because, after picking out the photos, we simply couldn't squeeze them into that number.
On the positive side, it's going to be thicker.
On the negative side. I have no moneyyyy.
Well, not literally but, it is quite a sum for both the books, framing, insurance, prints and everything else my exhibition demands of me, I still don't have my sponsors, and the last time I checked, money can't be conjured out of thin air.
(Speaking of which, someone asked a question while I was speaking at NYP, very simple, very plain, "Are you rich?" I think quite a few people tried asking that before.
Well people generally assume others are rich if their hobbies cost a bit. But the truth is far from it.I actually know girls who work part-time like mad during the school hols and spend all that money on a Super Dollfie. They cost between 1-2k, and their clothes easily in the 100s range, btw.
All my equipments were bought with my own earnings and savings, from my 350D to 5D to my current 1Ds Mark III. I'd stopped taking allowances from my mum when I was 15, the year that I stopped schooling at Raffles Girls. It's simple really, just don't spend on all that shopping and clubbing and taxiing. With a dollar a day and jobs every now and then, over the years it turns out to be quite a bit! I think I buy nothing else on a regular basis aside from artbooks. Heh.)
Back to the topic. Ahhhhhhh........ If only I wasn't aiming to get both the exhibition and photobook launching at the same time, whatever I was thinking. And my terrible streak of... whatever taste... with picking all things that just end up being on almost the very expensive to be done. I need sponsors~!
Well, anyway, I'd also been getting a few emails about this, yes I am selling the books in Singapore too. Let me sort out some final dimensions and paging details on my end, get previews up, and pre-order should happen soon. ^^
CG Overdrive is next week!
