OOTD: Against The Light


About weeks ago, we tried shooting while the sun is at lower angle. This is a time between 3:00-4:00 P.M. I've wanted to shoot at this hour and guess it finally happened. We found a location inside UP Diliman where I am not directly hit by the sunlight but only penetrating from the leaves and branches of trees. It provides a softer light that wraps around me, hence, a result of softer skin. My husband shoot opposed to the sun which he was very happy about when he saw the result because it is hard to shoot against the light. As you can see the sunlight is at my back.


The weather was very cooperating that day so I decided to finally take outfit shot wearing my Dual-tone Five Star-Print Bandeau from ROMWE. I know that this bandeau might not fit me because this comes in free size only but I still hit the check-out button. So, when it finally arrived and tried it, boy, it really didn't fit! It was like size small and I am medium. Good thing, this bandeau is garterized at the back so I altered it. I added about 3 inches of garter and finally worn it comfortably. 

Fine Rhinestone Crystal Sunflower Necklace with 18K Rose Gold Plated from Bellast. To see the full details of this necklace, click here.

Plastic Metal Fluorescent Color Handbag. It comes with a small pouch bag inside.

Infashionwholesale Chiffon Maxi Skirt (similar here or here or here) /
Dresslink Plastic Metal Fluorescent Color Handbag (similar to Choies) /
Bottero Wood Wedge Sandals


My husband takes photos of me for my blog and has tried shooting during golden hour and during mid-day hours. We learned that shooting during mid-day hours between 12:00 NN - 1:00 P.M. when the sun is most directly over my head create shadows and unwanted hollows on my face while shooting 1:00 P.M onwards; facing directly to the sun makes my brows knit and makes my eyes even more hooded because of the dazzling brightness. It is not easy to take outfit shots and every shoot is always a challenge.
