Personally, I am quite impressed with this year’s swimwear glamshots of Binibining Pilipinas. For me, this is the most gorgeous Binibini glamshot that I have ever seen in recent years and it wouldn’t have been made possible without the expertise of the masterful lensman Raymond Saldana. All the girls really look even more stunning and divine whilst clad in their white bikini. They have all done a great job channeling their respective inner beauty in just one single shot. Overall, the work was done in a tasteful manner, still deserving of respect and admiration.
