I was asked by a friend to shoot for an ad of Hi-Dee Jeans. I hesitated because I didn't have any experience doing ads. But when he mentioned that he will have 12 international models (he's a model himself) to wear the jeans, I didn't hesitate.

I enjoyed it a lot. I had the freedom to do whatever I wanna do.

Along that vein, I also post-processed the pictures not using my usual style.

Here are some models I worked with:

The 2nd set of photos you posted show off the product very well. They definitely have the "Manny Librodo style". Great work as always.

Awesome. I want to be like you when I grow up. How about showing us the lighting setup? Lots of strobes and bounces, I guess?

Thanks David.

Lighting? Actually, I don't know how to use one but I know how to FIND one. I also reinforce/redirect light using a reflector.

And some photoshop.:)

Well done. I enjoyed those.

Wow. As always, your work simply blows me away.

I think what sets you apart isn't your photographic talent but your ability to connect with people; you show us a glimpse of the person behind the face and make us want to know more. It's a rare thing to approach a stranger and leave as a friend, yet it seems natural and common for you. That, to me, is a very special gift, and one you use so well.

I hope you got something to use for POTY08 for Digital Camera Mag. I look forward to it.

Connecting with people is a VERY important factor especially in portraiture. I think you should also learn when to press the shutter.

That's an interesting observation.:)
