Few times we get to mix work with pleasure. Doing some shots for a local resort in Bohol, we had the chance to do some fashion layouts as part of the resort's PR and social media material.

Paulo: Weekends are also for new learnings and/or brushing up on old techniques. Starting last weekend, I have revisited the fascinating and seemingly daunting discipline that is product photography.

Paulo: Aside from the advertising projects that keep them busy, Point Blank Manila's photographers need a creative outlet where they can collaborate with other talents and have a direct hand on executing their own creative visions. The brief for this particular Saturday test shoot was avant-garde.  As artists, it is our commitment as well as our responsibility to continue to push the envelope, think out of the box and keep the creative fires burning by coming up with an unconventional HMUA story. Here are a couple of shots featuring one of Point Blank Manila's favorite HMUA collaborators, Mr. Jet Babas!

Broadway Tribute: Wicked

Broadway Tribute: Wicked

Test Shoots
Paulo: Tonight is opening night in Manila! Here is a personal tribute to the hit musical, Wicked. It's actually a mishmash of different images from past shoots as well as stock. It features (spoiler alert!) the transformation of Fiyero into the Scarecrow, the evil flying monkeys and of course, their evil green mistress and star of the show, Elphaba! The dimensions of this artwork are primarily designed to fit a triptych on Instagram that takes up 3 blocks of the Instagram grid when placed side by side.
