6 Poses To Try If You're Having A Photo Shoot Around The House
We’ll be staying at home until the end of the month, but that doesn’t mean our creative juices stop flowing. There are plenty of opportunities to stage your own mini photo shoot around the house, you just need the right perspective! Just grab a willing sibling or family member to model or take photos for you and you’re good to go. To help you out, here are some ideas you can try for your #TeamBahay photo shoot:
Strike a pose near a window.
Windows are an easy source of natural light, which is always a good idea if you want quality photos. Even if you’re awkward in front of the camera, you’ll still end up with an Insta-worthy shot.
Sit or lean on a table in the kitchen.
Hindi ka man magaling magluto, the kitchen will still come in handy for you. It could double as a worthy location for a spontaneous shoot. For your pose, sit on a table top or counter and play around with the available lighting and the kitchen cabinets—all it takes is finding the right angle.
Stand in front of an Insta-worthy wall and match your getup with it.
Coordinate your ‘fit with a certain artsy part around the house—whether it’s a plain colored wall or a nicely framed painting. A classic standing pose taken at creative angles will ace the shot.
Sit on table tops and arm rests and put a leg up.
Chairs aren’t the only things worth sitting on. If you need quality content, play around the spaces in your house. Your couch or the clutter in your room could work well as props.
Pretend you’re looking at yourself in the mirror.
Every house has at least one mirror. Use this to your advantage and take artsy shots in front of it.
Lean against a wall.
Wherever you may be, a classic plain white wall is a no-fail background. Lean against it, emote-emote nang konti, and you’ve got yourself an Insta-friendly photo.

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
