quick photo shoot

Hirshhorn Museum and Sculture Garden X Sheldon Quick Impromptu photo shoot before our tour stop in Washington DC. Artist: Sheldon Quick IG: @iam_sheldonquick Photographer: Mary Mbaba IG: @Mary2thegame @rebelphotoace


In early July a close friend of mine asked me to make him a dress for a friend’s upcoming wedding. As a huge contra dance fan and a resident near Asheville, NC, it was imperative to him that the skirt be extremely full, ready for a long contra set and many spins. The voluminous pleated skirt, mixed with his desire for a traditional style western shirt made this design an irresistible challenge.

He bought the fabrics and fasteners he wanted, sent them to me, and I got to work. Luckily Julian happens to be almost the exact same size and isn’t opposed to wearing the occasional dress, so he stood in as my fit model. A few days and many pleats later and the dress was finished, complete with paisley details, brass snaps, some deep pockets, and a bronze belt buckle that Chrome kindly sent my way.

After a quick photo shoot it was shoved into an envelope and sent off to North Carolina, where I have word that it spun the night away at that wedding. 

Good Enough

Summary: You and him were two complete opposites from each other… You were just the maid’s daughter, but him on the other hand was a celebrity… Girls practically threw themselves at him just to gain his attention… He could choose any girl… but he chose you..

(Listen to Say Yes by Loco and Punch while reading this)

You slowly looked around and thoughts began to float in your head. What if Tae stood you up? What if this was all a prank?

You continued to look all around you but again you didn’t see anyone…

Taehyung and you both agreed to meet up in the rooftop without anyone knowing you two were gone. You left out of your room and successfully your mother was in her room sound asleep. Did Taehyung have a chance to escape the room?

You walked closer to the edge and began to stare at the city lights from afar.

Maybe coming up here was a mistake.

You turned around and without noticing, you bumped into a figure. You quickly lifted your head and there he was.. Taehyung standing right in front of you.


“Didn’t think I would come?” He questions you and you looked down and shook your head.


“Well if we are being honest here. I was thinking about not coming.”


The next thing you know your eyes widen when you noticed Taehyung’s action. He wrapped his arm around your shoulder and pulled him close to his chest and was now hugging you. You complete froze and your eyes widen. You had no idea what to do. Should you hug him back? Should you push him away?

“i was disappointed when I didn’t see you show up… But then again I was happy.”

What? Did he just say he was happy that he didn’t me? What is that suppose to mean?

“What?” You asked slightly pulling back looking up at him but he smiled and pulled your back to the hug.

“I was happy because at least… I didn’t have to share you with the rest of the boys.”

You felt your heart melt and you couldn’t help but to smile.

Wait.. Where you slowly following for this boy?

You took deep breath and the only thing you could smell his cologne. You smiled and wanted to treasure the moment.. Because you know right away.. this moment wasn’t going to last forever..

Yesterday as I took over my friends photography studio with stuff for the shoebox project, we had a quick photo shoot for the website…. I can’t help but laugh at myself when having pictures taken- takes away a lot of the awkwardness!


COOL magazine have taken many photo shoots of boy groups, but this time, it was so out of control. We have never had such ‘thrilling’ experience before. We had simple, appropriate plans PLAN A & PLAN B, but we went with PLAN C, which was more lively and fun. 

Although we know BTS quite well, but we weren’t mentally and physically prepared for this photo shoot. During the photo shoot, we had signs such as losing our hearings and blindness. It resulted in a complete mess and everyone was laughing their heads off. It’s a bit exaggerated to say that we’re regretting but when their contagious, loud laughter was blasting around COOL’s head, COOL now fully understands that these kids’ power, is unpredicable.

The Fried Pork in Scoop says: “There’s no explanation for a foodaholic’s life.”

This time BTS came to our own photo studio, so we wanted to treat them as a host. Early in the morning, we went to a famous shop near the studio and bought many foods such as chestnuts, baked sweet potato chips, candied gourd and many fruits. It seems that it was all worth it, since BTS had to record a show until 2am, when they came to the studio in the morning, you could tell they were all really sleepy, but once they saw the foods on the table, they were all wide awake and cheering. 

All you could hear in the lounge was the sound of them peeling chestnut and munching on sweet potato chips. While COOL was explaining the schedule, they were all waving the chestnuts, saying thank you and that they’re eating well. They looked so cute with puffy cheeks like squirrels. There’s a proverb (it doesn’t exist but anyways) “there’s no end for a foodaholic”. Since COOL’s photo shoot will last the whole day, COOL’s friends worries that COOL won’t be able to have lunch so they bought takeaway from a restaurant that did northeastern chinese cuisine. 

They came and visted COOL with COOL’s favorite fried pork in scoop (super big portion) and green chili pepper with braised beef. It was still hot when the food arrived, the kids smelled it and all had stars in their eyes. COOL was handing it out saying “finish the meat and please concentrate for the photo shoot, quick quick quick!” While Jimin was eating the fried pork in scoop, he was mumbling in Chinese “lamb kebabs, lamb kebabs~!”. Our friends noticed that and went out to buy lamb kebabs. The kids kept eating non-stop and were very satisfied. They were all smiling brightly (like flowers) for each set of photos. They’re so easy to take care of, so easy!

The tapestry (on the wall) says: “do you guys hold a grudge against me”.

Photographer Xi hyung has added many props for this photo shoot. One of them was a tapestry, the color really matched well. But once the photo shoot started, the kids made a mess. We have stapled the tapestry very well on the backdrop but I think the kids had too much food and was too energetic, they were all smiling brightly for group shots and when they got put into different sets, they all turned into monkeys. They were wearing elegant clothes but once they were told to show some ‘skinship’, they all ended up grappling with each other. The first set was leader, Jin, Suga and maknae, 3 hyungs and a maknae, it was like a family photo, so harmonious and happy. 

The next set… oh no why did COOL randomly put them together. Putting J-Hope, Jimin and Kim! Tae! Hyung! together, it’s going to be a chaos. Just as expected, the composition of the frame needs someone to sit on the chair, once they saw the chair, they turned into Hercules and fought over it. COOL and the staff were all startled, it was too late to stop them, they were like a fried dough twist. When COOL suddenly shouted “enough, stop!”, the tapestry slowly fell down… down on Kim Taehyung’s head. Now the monkeys knows to look over at us. They all turned around and looked at COOL, the tapestry was still on Kim Taehyung’s head. 

COOL was very angry, had to pause the shoot and went to put up the tapestry. The kids looked embarrassed. Jimin was all smiley, wanting to help but when he saw COOL’s face, he backed out. Whereas Kim Taehyung was in a corner (in a squatting position), looking innocently and pouting at Xi hyung and COOL. Xi hyung just said: “just accept this misfortune.” COOL replied with a sneer: “you think this is the end?” Xi hyung trembled and felt a cold sweat falling down his face.

The Impressions of BTS

Behind The Scenes PT.2


he was on tour currently and you missed the hell out of him. everything seemed to remind you of him, the pillows and the sheets. He was almost everywhere. He didn’t even have time to talk, facetime or even text that’s what he said but you knew he was lying. He was just afraid if you heard his voice you would miss him even more and it was true but you didn’t want to admit it.

you checked your phone every minutes at work, it was annoying you that you couldn’t reach him. suddenly you heard a beep from your phone indicating that you received a text message.

it was him. it was gray.

you almost came to tears knowing that he reached out to you after all your hopeless attempts.

‘hi baby, i am fine also i am eating very well just got back from soundcheck. are you okay? have you been eating and sleeping well? now we are currently having a quick photo shoot i took this one picture hope you enjoy it! cute isn’t it? okay well i have to go now i love you very much bye for now’

you couldn’t help but you smile and the text and at the picture he sent you.
