GLAM SHOTS AND GALLERY EXPERIENCE
The glam shots of the candidates come with an augmented reality feature that pageant fans visiting the Binibining Pilipinas 2022 Glam Shot Photo Exhibit in the Gateway Mall Activity Area can also experience.
The candidates, themselves, were the first ones to try their photos' augmented reality feature during the exhibit's ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, May 22, 2022.
In a short chat with PEP.ph, former Miss Eco Teen International winner-turned-Binibining Pilipinas 2022 candidate Roan Tamondong expressed how happy she is to finally see her portrait.
She said, "All the preparations are worth it!"
The 20-year-old model from San Pablo, Laguna, added, "I feel so amazing right now, also kind of nervous 'cause I've been wanting to see the outcome of my photo shoot...here in my headshot.
"I'm super amazed at how it turned out. Shout-out to the photographers and the videographers, Sir Raymond [Saldana] and Sir [Owen].
"And of course, Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated for making these all possible, so I'm super happy.
"And also to the staff, thank you for guiding us and helping us throughout our Binibining Pilipinas journey."
Former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Diana Mackey echoed, "I'm loving the photos. I love everyone's photos. I love mine. I think everyone looks their best, so I hope you guys like all of our photos."
Asked which, aside from her own, was her favorite portrait, Diana exclaimed, "Hindi ako makapili!"
She elaborated, "Actually, lahat sila, sinasabihan ko, 'Oh my god, ang ganda, ang ganda, ang ganda!'
"Pero... Basta everyone's photos are really beautiful. Siyempre, I can't pick one!"
The candidates had a Philippine history refresher after checking out the 30 large history paintings at the Gateway Gallery's SiningSaysay: Philippine History in Art exhibit, which can also be enjoyed via AR through the Gateway Gallery mobile app.
