This Asian babe is definitely part of a balanced breakfast.
Let’s face it, while breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, eating healthy is total bullshit. Granola, fruit, perhaps some egg whites or cottage cheese? There’s nothing exciting about eating what’s good for you.
That’s where Leena Sombath and her delicious strawberries come in.
In an eye-poppingly vivid photo shoot with Mark Salgado, the Asian stunner poses in a tub of milk and strawberries in what has to be the sexiest concoction of fruit and dairy we’ve ever seen.
Honestly, forget Breakfast at Tiffany’s — we’ll take a balanced breakfast at Leena’s any day.
Photographer: Mark Eugene Salgado – @boknoysalgado
Can you introduce yourself and tell us how you got into photography?
Hello everyone! I’m Mark Eugene “Boknoy” Salgado. Born and raised in the Philippines. Currently located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Got into photography when I was in college for graphic designing. I landed a job as a designer for a local magazine when I moved to the U.S., and that required some photography skills. As a designer, instead of relying on another photographer, I just took my own photos for my designs.
I have been fascinated with women’s beauty and I know that photography is one of the tools to capture and preserve that beauty. Then somewhere down the line, that shifted into exploring on shooting boudoir and glamour. Asking some female friends to pose for me and posting those photos online for some feedback.
What camera and lighting set up did you use for this shoot?
It was a single light setup. I was using a strobe light with a honeycomb and a CTO filter. My Nikon d300 with the stock lens. Haha! Nothing fancy. 🙂
What was it about Leena that made her the perfect model for this set?
Leena and I have done multiple shoots before we did this one. Because of that, we became good friends. When I told her about this idea, she was up for it! The fact that she’s comfortable with me, she can tolerate and help me create this kind of images. Haha! She’s awesome! Follow her! @leenpocket
Do you have any memories from this shoot that stick out to you in particular?
Yeah! This set of photos is by far one of the few memorable shoots I’ve done! Before the milk and strawberries, I poured honey on her butt! HAHA! If you guys want to see that pic, I just posted it on my Instagram. Check it out!
How important is Photoshop in your final images?
In this digital age of photography, PS is another skill set! It’s very important to know how to use some sort of editing software to enhance your images. I consider myself as a visual artist more than a photographer. PS lets me add mood, vibe and a kind of signature look in my photos.
Before we let you go, any final words you’d like to say to your fans and followers? Anyone in particular you’d like to send a shout out to?
