Photographing Love: A natural model

After I got my second hand camera, I was so trigger happy that I wanted to shoot anything just to practice my photography. I then had an idea to update my co-workers' portraits and in turn help me learn more about photography, and of course having a photo shoot with them was both fun and rewarding, even though I did not want to get paid for it.

Actually before shooting Mommy Khel, I shot Love's photos first. And it was definitely hassle-free! She was lucky to have a photographer brother so she had a lot of experience projecting in front of the camera, so after our duty we had a mini photo shoot. Here are some of my favorite shots:
Love poses effortlessly, I love it!

Photographing Khel: maternity shots

Meet Khel, a first time mom- to-be to our clinic's first baby. We convinced Mommy Khel to have her maternity shots photographed by yours truly, to immortalize her sexy pregnant body.

First look at baby Thor :)

LATE POST: After our mini photoshoot at the clinic, my co- workers and I decided to go to our building's rooftop and see the view from above. We also took some wacky pictures and went home. Of course aesthetics nurses should get some early beauty sleep!

How to Start your online retail business

I've been contemplating for months now, if I'm going to share what I have learned from my years of becoming an  online seller. You might be like me; a member of the middle class; probably a professional, working in a 9 to 5 job, thinking of what my real calling is (for me its fashion) or just not contented of having the minimum wage that we have. As what I learned from the money management seminar that I attended, We have to build up our savings (by setting aside more in our bank accounts or having a sideline or business) to enable us to buys stocks/ shares and later help us get out of the "rat race" :) or the corporate world.  
 DIY take on my site- very amateur but I survived.

Blog lag

A lot has happened since I logged on. And even though I think I have a handful of followers, please forgive me for not following through. Here's an update of how Plethora's doing these past few months.

1. I noticed some sites that have been revamped by Multiply, making it more easier for sellers like us to manage an e- commerce shop with a fraction of the cost. Becoming a Multiply 5.0 seller means that we are part of a pilot team, there still a lot of bugs and problems with the system but since the idea is still new, they are constantly fixing it, also becoming open to suggestions from us sellers and therefore making the system better. Hopefully with the cooperation of both the Multiply team and the sellers, online shopping through Multiply will be a lot more easier. Check out my Multiply site and experience it for yourself.

2. Top Brand Awards names Plethora Shop as the most outstanding vintage online clothing seller. Taken from their website, here is their nomination and selection process.

The awardees are selected through PUBLIC / CASUAL and ONLINE NOMINATION followed by random consumer survey and research. Opinion polls, including telephone polls and casual consumer inquiries in popular product outlets are being further conducted by a Research Team who monitors or visits the nominees "incognito".

General Awards Criteria
35%     Brand or Corporate Value
30%     Ease of Use & Performance
20%     Satisfaction
15%     Pricing

*The specific award percentages of the awardees are confidential for purpose(s) of not offending consumer products and/or companies of similar corporate or product categories.
Thank you very much for all of Plethora's clients and to the future clients, we promise to give you the best customer service. 
3. As an incentive for becoming a Multiply 5.0 seller, they are giving free Google Ad credits to help with the shop advertisement. Fortunately I had help from my colleagues, who were willing to be models.
