The circuit breaker ends on June 1, but we’re still advised to telecommute and only go out for essentials, such as buying food and groceries. So, in a way, it’s like CB ended, but not really.
If you’re bored out of your wits or need photos to fill up your Instagram feed other than screengrabs from the Internet or a photo of what you’re streaming on Netflix, here’s an idea: do a FaceTime photo shoot.
That’s what Singaporean photographer Lenne Chai has been doing. She was inspired after seeing a rise in such shoots among international photographers. For example, Vogue Italia’s cover girl Bella Hadid had her whole shoot done via FaceTime.
The 20-year-old started a series titled People I Miss, and contacted 30 of her close friends, including radio personality Sonia Chew, to participate in the shoot. The result? S-t-u-n-n-i-n-g shots.
Inspired yet? Jio your friend to do this project with you so you can direct each other!
Confused how to actually do the shoot? All you have to do is video-call each other on FaceTime, and press the white button at the bottom left to take a screen capture. No, the small screen that shows your face won’t be captured.
Here are tips that Lenne gave to The Straits Times for those who want to try their hand at a FaceTime shoot.
