Last 02 October 2012, Pauline Juan, Editor in Chief of Preview Magazine invited IGersManila to join a live portraiture session with muses Georgina Wilson, Liz Uy, and Bea Soriano, with other artists to pay homage to Claudio Bravo’s works featured in Metropolitan Museum of Manila’s month-long exhibit entitled “Claudio Bravo: Sojourn in Manila.”

Together with fellow moderators Ed Calaycay and Petim Maminta, we brought along our Sevenistas (Instagram’ers we picked from a special #9pmhabit on portraiture, though only 6 made it to the event) and in about three hours, we snapped shots, paused a bit to get awestruck with the beautiful models, snapped some more, and went on applying our creative edits. These are some of my unedited snapshots and the filtered photos I uploaded to Instagram.

Check out the rest of the entries (@cclozano @edcalaycay @ipetim @dearjohn26_pf @reyjohnino @mlavin @instavher @jigen_jiggy_with_it @instavher) here.
