Why did I have to see this thread? Now I want to throw all my photos away. Damn, Manny. That's all I can say.

I have to say "wow". Such beautiful work. I especially like the "Rain"
Of course, your photography is exceptional and your model...she must have been amazing to work with. Truly beautiful.

And also how much post processing you put into your shots. Is it just make-up or do you do a bit of photoshoping as well. Thanks for the info and amazing inspiration.


For this shot, I had Kharu under the shade. That explains the shaded part. The sky was overcast...perefct for portrait. Post-processing...yes. I ran the picture through neatimage, then sharpened it.

Amazing...She has a very Jennifer Lopez quality to her. I can see how you would've taken 2000 shots of her. You can tell she's super versatile. Congrats on finding your muse!

Dude, you always blow me away. I wish I didn't have my entrance exam on Aug 28 and moving that week or I would be on a plane on my way to crash the party ;). (ok, so I'd ask first but either way it's not possible :)...

I just made an acquaintance in Singapore the other day (a fellow Canonite) that told me he would let me stay at his place too... *grumble*

Make-up...mostly herself except for the fancy one which was done by the daughter of the gallery where I had the exhibit (Kiten Capili). Styling...only her. She brings her own costume and plan her own concept. I just direct her in terms of angle to get a good light. All of these portraits are with natural light and in some, a reflector.

Manny, these are just outstanding! What can I add to what's already been said? Thanks for sharing!

And now the Gallery at pbase is No.1 exactly a week after I created it. Just got the message from Kharu and she said "thanks" to all your appreciation of her work. She calls it an art... the art of posing and planning. She decided her own theme and prepared her own costume. She styled herself.

I will have her as my model in my next workshop in Singapore on August 26. I was requested by a group of Filipinos to bring the workshop there. What was intended as a workshop for 20 participants has now 32 listed participants. Quite daunting. But with Kharu around...it will be a blast!
08/06/2006 07:05:33 PM · #15
Damn it Manny,
it's not fair... you have a really hot (for lack of a better term) model there. If my wife found me with another women of that caliber I'd be divorced with in minutes. You have taken some astounding shots. If I ever decide to shoot glamour I am going to lean on you for direction and advise. VERY impressive work.

My next big workshop will be at Boracay Island, the Philippines, on December of this year. Portraits with the use of natural light.

To those who are interested about Boracay, here are some pictures I took from that beautiful island two years ago.

Manny, I love looking at your work! You must be on a tremendous high with such a great model and so many tremendous images.

What great creativity, talent and vision you share here.


Oppsss...I forgot there is a Free Study...

Anyway, thanks for the comment everyone. Please visit the pbase site for more as I intend to post almost every day. Click here for the LATEST.

Don't be surprised if you get a call from Revlon, unless you already have.

In a couple of the photos (the closeups), it appears that the base make-up or foundation, is caked on. I think that she is beautiful enough without so much foundation that it wrinkles from it's thickness. If smoothness of the skin and evenness of color is the goal when it comes to make-up, then perhaps it would have been better accomplished in post-processing.


Completely agree with you. I would have loved to shoot her sans make up. But we have a make up artist and I was not in a liberty to suggest.

i'm pretty sure your work could make anyone look beautiful.

even me.


So when will the session be? It will be an easy task (no post-processing)...I'll do it for free...

I see you got my check Manny - a simple thanks would have been more than enough.
btw, is this going to cost me extra?? :))

oh, and I get dibs on your recycle bin - your discards have to be better than my keepers!


And I will in your recycle bin too for your landscape.:)

The apprehension that I feel when I consider criticizing Librodo must epitomize what it's like for a newbie to offer their first real critique or comment that isn't just a nicety.

I think that she is beautiful enough without so much foundation that it wrinkles from it's thickness. If smoothness of the skin and evenness of color is the goal when it comes to make-up, then perhaps it would have been better accomplished in post-processing.

Now the niceties...otherwise I love the shots, especially R A I N, and Z E S T. In HOMEBOUND, I like how the image has been composed so that the car is tilted and she is more upright...very creative.
