Photography by Ben Bigalbal
One of my goals this 2015 is to reach out by trying new things. I’ve got a couple of things on my list, and one of them is agree on going to photo shoots with people I met over the Internet. Although I actually met Ben through Charlene Ajose, most of our interaction were done online. I agreed doing a shoot with him because unlike most male photographers I’ve interacted with, he doesn’t have any creepy-I-want-you-half-naked vibes.

I always take my own photos for my blog, so I’m expected to be pro at this. But I’m not. I get uncomfortable and lost in front of someone else’s camera. 90% of the time, I have no idea what I’m doing. But that’s the point of this activity: to encourage myself to get out of my comfort zone, make mistakes and learn to laugh at it… like what I did throughout the shoot.
Is there something new that you’d like to try this 2015?
