As usual, I always love having Jinri in front of the lens.
This particular location has been months in the planning given how schedules had to be aligned for all people involved. It’s been getting harder and harder to rally the usual suspects for a shoot with how our work schedules have been getting tighter towards the holidays. As you could see, it’s only now I get to update this blog.
This particular vintage-inspired set was something I just had to do at the venue. The furniture rotates on a regular basis so I had to take this chance before the entire set disappears again at the whim of the homeowner.There’s something about vintage looks that never loses its appeal with me. I guess since the tone and feel is already set in a particular time, we didn’t have to be too forward into thinking if the shot is apt in a contemporary setting.
Prior to every fun shoot we do, Jinri and I spend a good time chatting around and picking up pegs to work on. Jinri is collaborative to this extent. The pegs we started with were something she just threw around. It eventually mutated to other layouts as the venue permitted, giving us alot more images in the end than what we originally planned. This “gym” series was based on Khloe Kardashian Complex magazine spread. It was Jinri’s idea to work on this look first.
Lo and behold right beside the gym is a bar. How convenient is that? 😛
