Local models, beware the nude photos that can haunt you later.
According to a report in The New Paper, this was the advice local blogger and DJ Peggy Heng (main photo, left), 24, offered in an entry she posted in her blog last Saturday.
The post, she said, was directed at young girls who are enticed by photographers to do nude photoshoots in exchange for money, with the photographers later sharing the photos online — sometimes without their knowledge.
But Miss Heng then risked the wrath of the very models she was purportedly giving advice to by illustrating her blog post with semi-nude photos of local women.
One, in particular, was of prominent local model-blogger Yan Kay Kay (main photo, right), who was shocked to see a picture of herself in purple lingerie with her face and private parts obscured.
Miss Yan, 31, said that she has never taken part in any nude photo shoots before. The photo on Miss Heng’s blog, she claimed, was a shot of her accidentally exposing herself during a lingerie shoot several years ago.
Miss Heng admitted that she and Miss Yan have had a past. Miss Yan, she said, had called her nasty names on Twitter previously. That is why, she admitted, she did not see the need to omit Miss Yan’s photos in her blog post.
After Miss Heng’s blog post went viral online, she received multiple messages from Miss Yan, who apologised to her following a three-hour text message conversation.
Miss Yan’s photos have since been removed from the blog post. Miss Heng said: “She explained to me that the photos were those of her exposing herself accidentally, and she didn’t deliberately pose for any nude shots. She also apologised sincerely to me for what she did in the past, and I felt that I finally had closure.”
She added: “I am no saint, but I am not a bad person.”
