That's a wrap!


We had a photoshoot in the office a couple of Fridays ago. The resulting digital stock was to be used in marketing and corporate collaterals. The photographers set-up one of our bigger spaces into a "studio", where our management team got their individual and group photos taken. Four flashbulbs situated on 4 corners would simultaneously go off, while the "subject" gets comfy in the center of this square.

Prior to the actual shoot, they needed some stand-ins for the preliminary testing. So they called me and their two companions to the center. Then *pop!* went the flash. You see white, and then it's ok. Surprisingly, you don't get blinded by all those flashes. Amazing. In fact, it gets fun the longer you stay at the center.

Yes, I admit it. I was momentarily attracted to the flashing lights, of getting my face posted in billboards all over the Metropolis, of seeing my face on Magazines, and eventually, on TV! Should I perfect the Derek Zoolander look with Jo-Lo?

"Ok na. Tapos na preliminary testing. Sige, papasukin mo na yung Board of Directors." (ok, perliminary testing is done. Call in your Board of Directors)

Earth to Nick. Reality check. Back to work. (Hmmm... reminds me of Mickey Mouse's The Sorcerer's Apprentice).

Actually, they asked me do a couple of shots, and it was really fun! Now I know how it feels like to be in the limelight. Sort of.
