It was Friday night and a house party was held for a good friend of ours that were leaving SF Bay Area for good to be with his sweetheart. My lovely boyfriend Christian Hadidjaja thought about having a photo session at the apartment when the opportunity presented itself.
“If we have time,” he calmly said as we’re preparing to leave.
Later that night, when we started to celebrate at our friend’s apartment, he set up some lighting close to one of the white walls of the apartment’s living room. After a short testing period (during which everyone was complaining about having “lightning bolt flash” indoor), the group just spontaneously started to take turns posing in front of the camera. No fancy direction or choreography, just pure joy and fun (and perhaps narcissism) and a little bit of childish curiosity.
