I hope you all are doing great today. I’m just here counting down to when I’m going to be done with my internship and I can’t wait because I need proper rest and I need to have a life lol!
Anyway, some weeks back,roqeeba and i got talking and if you don’t Know her, she is a photographer and a creative one at that. we actually met on Instagram.
So we got talking and we felt it would be nice to do a collaboration so she came up with a phone booth concept. Since the phone booth was invented ages ago so we thought to make it a complete retro theme.
I wore a Black turtle With a vintage shirt. Together with a boyfriend Jean and a black and white platform sandal. I got the sandal at Konga, you can check it out.
She came to pick me up, I mean ow nice was that lol!
This was actually our first time of actually meeting and I must say, we bonded so well Masha Allah.
We headed over to the phone booth at Sam Shonibare, Surulere. I took my new camera along just to check out the quality in broad daylight and of course to get used to it. by the way, I’m starting to find my way around the camera, we have really bonded lol! you can check out the post on the Samsung nx 3oo here.
here are the pictures which were taken at the Phone booth.
When we were done shooting at the phone booth, we started thinking of other cool places to take pictures so we sorta drove around Surulere looking for location and we found this really cool place with really dope paintings on the wall at Adelabu. would have loved to take pictures of all of the paintings but the owner said we had to pay and we got no money. but I already took a few shots before he decided to chase us away lol!
on our way, we met this little girl who was selling pomo (cow hide) and she became our muse. I will be sharing pictures from our shoot with her in another blog post. stay tuned!
All in all, I had a very fun day with roqeeba. when we were done, we headed over to her place so I could get the pictures and then she taught me how to use the lightroom software. using lightroom is actually pretty easy but I just couldn’t help being graphic lol! so I decided to turn some of the photographs we took into some sort of graphic Art. Roqeebah was shocked because this was the first time I would ever use lightroom and I changed the whole game lol! I guess I’m just a natural.notice how I changed the colors of the wall.same wall, different colors lol!
when we were done at Adelabu, we began looking for other places to take pictures again lol! so we got Eric Moore to take these shots.
