This is a late post so I am assuming that you have seen a photo or two of the official portrait shots of the Binibining Pilipinas 2014 candidates! This is the official portrait in the website of Binibining Pilipinas. Nevertheless, I want us to go through each and every picture to identify how the girls performed. So how do we critique a portrait photo? If we talk about portrait shot, my expectation is that of a photo that captures the beautiful aura of the delegate. The key to a successful portrait shot is knowing the best angle that will highlight everything that is beautiful in the candidate and will downplay those that are not. The candidate is captured from the legs up so it is different from head shots. The delegate is also evaluated not just by the beauty of the face but also with the pose that was chosen which differentiates it from a beauty shot. The shoot is also a bit muted as there is no photo shoot theme thus different from a glam shot. I evaluated the girls from their ability to look good and be beautiful with her body angles and poses 🙂 Here are the official portrait photos!

I love the curves; Gorgeous face but disappointing pout..

Could have been a great photo if she put more emotions into her eyes
Binibini 3 – Joana Angelica Romero

Great personality… She looks vibrant and energetic!

Kris proved to us that she is one of the contender for crowns! Look at the determination and the drive 🙂 She is killing this!
Binibini 14 – Emma Mary Tiglao
This time, I am liking the photo neck down! The face looks empty to me. No emotions 😦

Kim excels in this type of shoots. That swan-like neck is to die for!

I am not a fan of that body but the face is beautiful 🙂

Now, can you please fire the hairstylist?!?

FRESH… The minimal make-up look is working for me.

Disappointed with Carla. I had bigger expectations 😦
Binibini 29 – Krischelle Halili
Always be careful not to look as if your eyes are about to sleep…
Binibini 30 – Joy Marie Gangan
She reminds me of Angeli Gomez. She looks bigger than her usual size because of the pose.

Angelique looks different but I love the rawness of her face…
Binibini 32 – Jeslyn Santos
This is the type of photo that will make me say “blah”

Too much forehead for my taste but the body is to die for 🙂
Binibini 34 – Leonalyn Dela Cruz
Binibini 35 – Yvethe Marie Santiago

Binibini 36 – Krystal Alonday
Krystal was able to find the best angle for her nose…
Binibini 37 – Vanessa Saliba
Binibini 38 – Janine Asanion
Binibini 39 – Ladylyn Riva
Too heavy eye make-up… Such an over-kill!
Binibini 40 – Vessica Sambo
I love the over-all feel though the position of the left arm looks weird.

I will be sharing some of my favorites later…
