Amor v2.0

Overview

This page shows a collection of lifestyle shots of Amor Diaz.

The Details

I’ve met Amor in one of the photography events in our country. She is a brand ambassador of a few beauty products as well as Sisig Hooray, a food-chain in Metro Manila.

Her eyes and facial expression conveys a strong woman personality. She somewhat resembles Nadine Lustre and Kathryn Bernardo which are actresses in the Philippine movie industry.

We chose the Marikina Sports Center for this photo session.

Gears

I have used the following to achieve these shots:

  • Nikon D750, a very capable full-frame camera that I use in wedding events due to it’s superb low-light performance
  • Nikon 105mm f/2.8 VR Micro
  • Nikon 35mm f/2D
  • Sigma 12-24

Lighting

My style depends on the concept or story that I want to convey. It’s a mix of available light and one off-camera flash photography. For the off-camera lighting, I use a Yongnuo flash and a shoot-through umbrella to soften the light source which flatters my subjects.

Posing

Posing is very crucial so I ask my subjects to relax. I talk to them first, get to know them and try to win them. Once they are comfortable then the job becomes easier. This is very crucial in women portraits as you want to make them look flattering in the final output.

For this shoot, I asked Amor to lay her head on the post as I think it emphasizes her jawline.

Post-production

I post-process my images depending on the theme that I’m shooting. For this concept, I used bright tones to complement with Amor’s skin tone.
