A few months ago, I had just arrived back into the Philippines. When the year started, I had no plans of going back home, but as the months progressed and as COVID-19 spread, it seemed like I had no other choice. I had to go home and keep myself under quarantine for two weeks.
Obviously, a few days later and then I was bored. Knowing myself, I had to keep myself busy or else my mind will explode. Naturally, this quarantine season made me think of things I never really wanted to think about. This quarantine season also filled my head with ideas I knew I had to execute. So, as per usual, I took my trusty tripod and propped my camera on it and set my timer. I could not find a model, and I also cannot have any physical interactions with other people, so I had to model for myself.
Here are a few self-portraits that I have taken during one boring quarantine day.
Can I just say how much I love how prominent my nose ring is in these photos? My parents hate it, but honestly, I would not have gotten it myself if I knew that I would not like it. So come at me. Ha!
I have taken so many amazing photographs using my timer + tripod during this quarantine season, and I would love to create more since I feel like the General Community Quarantine in Luzon will be imposed erm, forever. Great.
But in reality, I have grown to accept that this could be a blessing in disguise. So every single day, I am trying to see what lesson this pandemic can teach me. This helps me become less stressed, bored, and frustrated each and every day. So, yeah.
Let me know how you like these photographs, and let me know how you are and what you are up to during this quarantine season! I would love to talk to you!
For now, back to work. Stay at home and stay safe, friends!
