Boy, have we got some goooood news for ya: We've just learned that Jay Tablante, the lensman behind the best-selling gravure photobooks The Jinri Experience and Weekend With Ellen, is currently developing a new one with Abby Poblador!
An Intimate Escape: Abby, which was recently shot in a private guest house in Laguna, features Abby in a series of boso-friendly poses (because that's what gravure's all about). Jay was gracious enough to give us a glimpse of what went down during their two-day shoot, and based on what we saw, it looks like he's about to outdo himself again.
Scr0ll down to see the behind-the-scenes photos!
We've been told that Abby agreed to do this shoot minus her usual talent fee. "She says that having her own gravure book is enough of an honor," Jay tells us. To be mentioned in the same conversation as Jinri Park and Ellen Adarna is payment enough, right?
Just how intimate is this shoot? The entire production crew is composed of Jay, makeup artist Michelle Romero, stylist Hannah Kim, set photographer Paolo Pacheco, and a couple of production assistants.
One recurring theme in Jay's gravure books: weekend getaways. But who are we to question a dude who has his own collection of perfect vacay photos?
Jay also uses a lot of beach hammocks. Maybe we should incorporate more of those in our own pictorials. Thanks for the tip, idol!
"This may be Abby's sexiest shoot to date," Jay insists. "We're doing the usual gravure stuff—natural lighting, minimal make-up—para very intimate ang feel." #feels
