셰나 by Neil Kenneth Sael

Neil:

This set was shot last January, where my model and K-Pop enthusiast friend, named Shanna, from Davao City was in vacation here in Metro Manila for four days.

We've been planning to have a portrait session for roughly a year since we didn't get to meet with her previous trips.

This set was supposed to be an experiment of colors but it turned out to be a staple of my succeeding night street portraits. 

The neon color scheme fitted her style really well.

Desert in the City by Rune Kjelseth

Rune:

When I moved to cold and dark, wintery Oslo, Norway a month ago, I imagined it would be a bit different shooting after having spent some time in Asia.

Well, I was blown away by this location, a greenhouse in the middle of the city with a desert section.

Feature: Jerferson Permejo

Jerferson Permejo is a self-taught photographer based in Manila.

He started to learn how to take photos over a year ago when he bought his camera actually for casual purposes. He is very eager to learn that he watched probably all tutorial videos on how to use a camera and how to edit the photos. He is very fond of shooting portraits and he finds shooting people really interesting because he can understand and can capture stories behind different eyes. It's just last year when he discovered his style of shooting. 

His signature is shooting portraits of women. He is also amazed with the raw and natural beauty of a woman and capturing it is his one of his discovered passion in life.

"I don’t have much reason why they’re my personal favorites. They’re just beautiful and amazing and it really appealed to my taste and aesthetics."

Feature: Jasmine Abdullah

This week's feature comes from Jasmine Abdullah.

Taking place at an abandoned mansion somewhere in Malaysia, the location provides a sombre ambience. The model exhibits a sensual, yet melancholic aura in these images. Jasmine then balances these images with a desaturated, brownish green tone.

Feature: Nina Eilisa

One of my goals for We Shoot Souls is to feature works exclusive to the site.

I'm more than excited that Nina Eilisa of ENVY Creatives, a super talented fashion photographer from the Philippines, was keen to showcase her set of images, taken recently in Hong Kong

Photographer: Nina Eilisa [@itsninaaeilisaa]

Model: Elis Strohhaecker [@elis_strohhaecker]

Nina:

"We shot this set walking around the bright and bustling streets of Mong Kong, Hong Kong. As much as I love shooting in studios, shooting outdoors in different locations has its own charm and unique experience. We shot during the night time but that was no problem with the neon lights and signboards that lit the streets"

Nina:

"We literally just walked around and stopped to shoot at any corner that we thought looked interesting. Shooting with just the model and myself, guerrilla-style, reminded me of the times I was just starting out as a photographer when I would shoot portraits without any hair, makeup or styling team"

Nina:

"It was quite a different yet fun experience and I am glad with the way the photos turned out; each photo is interesting and is definitely worth a thousand words"
