Photography Sharing Article – The Art of Gisele

As an avid photographer, I went through different phases in my photography journey. Starting off from travel photography to events photography, I was soon exploring the art of portrait photography, both indoors and outdoors.

The recent solemnisation photoshoot of James & Shirley gave me another round of outdoor portrait photography, more experienced and able to get the couple to do different poses and themes. An area that I am slowly improving, small breakthrough from my previous outdoor photoshoot of Wen Liang and Portia. 

Recently, I read PopPhoto and found an article on “The Art of Gisele“, this was about an exclusive 30th Anniversary Showcase for PopPhoto ! Dropping inside to read and view the photography works of Gisele Bundchen, it gives a great insight on the art and techniques of indoor portrait photography, styles and positioning. That’s always something you can learn from looking at how the photos were taken and I would strive to reach that standard one day, either on a professional or passion basis. 

I had asked a few friends before, to become my volunteer models to do a portrait photoshoot in studios, giving me an opportunity to hone my photography skills to another level. 

Any volunteers ?


  1. Oh, I hope you were here.

    We took such theme portrait photoshoots before, I know some good models. They really have camera feeling.

    A good model is very important to a good photograther. 🙂

    Shooting theme portraits would be my next photography portfolio. Hope to get some friends and do it soon !

    Yes, good photogenic models are a lot easier for photographers to work with !

  3. I agree that one can learn by looking at how great photos are taken….sometimes, it brings about inspiration and new perspective.

    I don’t know but I prefer to take candid the streets vs having models posing in studios. I may find a passion in the latter later on..who knows 🙂

    Looking at how photos are taken, have a feel about it and translate them back into your photography 🙂

    Candid shots requires a different set of photography skills, knowledge and experience versus models posing in studios.

    Follow your passion 🙂

    Just Do It !
