Framing Silhouettes

jade herrera enrico gutierrez emotive photography

Looking at my portfolio and past photos, there’s one thing you’ll see in common—the photos have a soft and delicate aura. Though there’s nothing wrong with that, I’ve always wanted to try something dark and edgy. And thanks to Enrico Gutierrez, an awesome and talented photograph, I can now cross one of the items in my bucket list.

Here are some of the photos from our shoot:

You may have seen in my previous post that I was one of the models for PRISMA, the graduation fashion show of UP Clothing Technology. In this post, however, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite pieces from the show.

I know that I haven’t been blogging as much as I used to. I was busy with school and work that I even forgot to thank you for continuing to read my blog which now consist mostly of poems I write when I can’t sleep. Would you believe it? My blog is already two years old. YAY!

Anyway, I’d like to share with you another amazing moment in my life. This past year, I started to venture in the modelling industry, mainly to see what it’s like and to learn a couple of things. I had no idea I would enjoy and love it this much. I got to meet models who I became really close with (Hi Princess and Mariel!) and also budding designers I know would one day make their mark on the fashion world.

Last November, I walked the runway of PRISMA, the fashion show organized by the graduating batch of UP Clothing Technology to showcase their designs. Here are some of my photos from the show.

Fall Down

How can I be an angel
when you clipped my wings
and burned up the feathers?

My feet are blistered
and bleeding
from running after the wind,
jumping
and hoping
that the breeze
would carry me
where it blows.

But I fall to the ground,
my balance lost,
flight unregained.

I stand up
and jump again.

jade herrera imagine nation photography bridal

Last September, I had the opportunity to collaborate and model for Imagine Nation Photography, a team of professional wedding photographers. It was a dream come true. Since I was a kid, I would often daydream of posing in a wedding dress that I would wrap myself in a white blanket and sashay around the house. I never thought that this would actually happen since modeling wasn’t something I thought I would do back then.

In case I never get married, at least, I got to wear a wedding dress.

This photo reminds me of Lord Byron’s poem, She Walks in Beauty. Here’s an excerpt of the poem:

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies…

…And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Envisage

How do you decide to leave someone?

Envisage

Where do words go
when they are not used?

Do they sleep in beds
covered with blankets
to keep them warm
and alive?

Do they fall in love?
Are subjects and predicates
forever intertwined?

Are adverbs stronger
than verbs?
Are pronouns understudy
of nouns?
Are prepositions for finding
lost things only?
Are adjectives merely colors
used to paint the world?
Are interjections more emotional
than punctuations?

I sat there,
contemplating,
when you came in.
A question formed
in your lips
and in your eyes
I found the answer.
