Compared to the other photoshoots we’ve been having lately, this one was quite good. All the girls, except for one, did pretty decently this week, but I don’t think anyone really knocked it out of the ball park this time around. So for this photoshoot, the girls posed with a Subaru (again) in vintage styling. Oh yeah, they also had to choose their own props, which were quite simple and not gimicky at all to the brief. It’s an all around great photoshoot. I didn’t think the elimination was outrageous at all though. Contrary to the RTVG users, I thought that her inconsistency prevented her from making into the finale. That isn’t to say her other bottom 2 opponent wasn’t any better in consistency though. Let’s get into this photoshoot now!
I say I’m not mad about Clara’s elimination, yet I put her as FCO? Seems a little hypocritical, right? Well, I thought that Clara’s portfolio is just a little too hit or miss for me to be mad about her elimination. First of all, Clara from the torso up just easily beats the rest of the girls this week. It’s actually perfect for a campaign like this. It’s loveable, vintage, and it holds that classic, magic 50s smile in those old fashioned ads. Her makeover’s cut is doing her a lot with the vintage hairstyle she was given. Though, what brings this shot down is her torso down. Maybe it’s the angle of the camera, but the way her jumbles her legs together makes her leg proportions look screwed. I didn’t have this FCO until today, but I finally saw what everyone else is seeing here. Originally, my FCO was actually…
…this one right here. Let’s get into why I liked this shot so much. Her face looks absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking here. This is possibly her best closeup yet. I like the smoke around her face too. It makes her a lot more mysterious. Like she came out of the smoke, searching for the way back home. I like the way she uses her props too. It’s subtle yet it works in a fashionable way. I’m not sure why she got the binoculars though. Unfortunately, the boring body is slowing bringing this shot down more. I don’t like the way she positioned her legs like that. Similar to Clara, the dress doesn’t look so great. Her thighs are huugee here. It’s still a really good photo of Tu, and it’s her best so far.
This photo, as well, is not bad either. I think the body is just perfect here. Yeah, it’s not innovative nor a creative pose, but it works really well for her set. She looks her height here, which is good. I like how she looks like she’s playing with the ukulele here. It’s like she’s singing a song to calm herself from being lost in the middle of nowhere. The styling is really cute too. The face though… It’s such a cheesy and boring expression. What I didn’t want from this photo was the hopeful gaze to space. If she had Clara’s expression here, I’d like this photo much more and would consider it one of the best. The judges still gave this FCO to Shikin though, being her 2nd one now. Overall, it’s not terrible at all, quite decent actually, but it has much more potential considering Shikin’s modelling experience.
With Maureen having a very strong meaning to this photo, this is an incredibly huge disappointment from her. Not to mention that her photoshoot in general was not good at all. She had lots of help, yet her film was just so, so bad. When Maureen just stood still with both the props in her hands, it was so creepy. The screencap of it is in there too. The bangs look horrible here. The pose is just so forced and unfitting to this shot, plus, her face just doesn’t read any of the vintageness that should’ve been in this shot. Hell, Shikin’s expression compared to this is a godsend. The inconsistency in her portfolio is so severe, it’s annoying.
