Oriental Bunmi

A shot following yesterdays theme. I have one more queued up for tomorrow.

This is Miss B for Bunmi, the assistant for the shoot today. Suby also assisted too. I was given a commission to do a magazine cover and Bunmi was very kind in arranging everything for the shoot. All I had to do was take the photos.

I think at this point I should take special appreciation to Suby, Motun (The model) and Bunmi for all the help they provided in doing the shoot. I don't think I would have succeeded in producing the shots without them. The shots were amazing. Maybe I'll put the final spread up once I get permission from the publisher.

Hey, this is Ok, but you have done better, sorry. Finish your studies and come back refreshed mate. No not as appealing as the others, too much fan, doesn't work for me visually.


Jide Alakija: Thanks.
Bunmiiiiiiiiiii.....U need to put a shot of her whole face...let ppl see my gorgeousss friendddddd.

Of course this is a fantastic picture...and I'm not biased!!....LoL
Jide Alakija: Heeehee...I do have a full shot of her but I don't think the blogging community would let me put it up until I've done some more work on my thesis. If I can make sometime over the weekend I'll post it. Right now I do have quite a bit to finish off, offline. Thanks Dammie.

I like it, the colour match with ur skin. like the exotic side of it. He sould have taken ur whole face though, but still really gud.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Lydie.

I love the whole oriental thing about this picture and bunmi's hair makes it perfect.The colours on the fan really bring out the picture and i like that her whole face is not showing,it gives your mind something to think about.
