Top tips for the perfect picture?
Lighting is very important. Besides that, it’s helpful to know what you want in mind – this helps to also give you a brief idea of the location, outfit or even makeup to complement the shot. Always, smile! Happy girls are the prettiest.
Important things for a successful shoot:
Usually, we’d have a moodboard of what we want to capture and for him it’s to get the vibes of what I have in mind. A little telepathy and chemistry is definitely needed.
I usually edit it on camera RAW. I’ve my own set of presets that I develop so those are my go-to. That aside, VSCO is my favourite – I primarily use A6 on VSCO!
What do you do when your IG boyfriend is absent?
I usually get my sister, friends, or even my mum to photograph.
Who works harder?
I think there isn’t really a party that works harder! It always takes two hands to clap, aye?
On a scale of 1 to 10, how frequently does Jerald voluntarily takes a photo without being asked to?
Likely 10 out of 10! We love taking photos. It’s almost habitual.
