From Sunrise to Sunset (Views Back Home)

A Highway's Sunrise
This shot (above) was taken a few months ago when I got the urge to wake up really early to do some online tasks. Little did I expect to see something as magnificent as this outside our window from where our desktop sits. What an early morning surprise, a bloody red sunset that can also be seen at the highway (our house is just a few blocks from south super highway).

Garden Shots: Colours in Bloom

closer look at yellowbell
Had a hunch to get my camera one misty morning and just roam around the garden and take some gorgeous blossoms. The digital macro feature of my Canon Ixus 80IS did a really wonderful job.

Abstract Photography

abstract: Moist
I shared about my memories of my photography class on my last post. One of the assignments given was to photograph "Abstract in Nature". From my experience, I find abstract photography as a very creative approach when you want to try to capture some stimulating images. Plus, all you really need is a camera and some wild imagination. Think about colors, form, patterns, close ups... Keep your eyes open and look beyond what the normal eyes can see...

You may check out some amazing examples of abstract photography at this link. Now let's go practice!

Memories on My First Film

Back in college, I took up Basic Photography class as part of my curriculum. It was one of those subjects I dearly enjoyed and missed - the assignments, the fun and frustrations while shooting our subjects in focus, the  growing excitement to see the developed prints and my first clicks on my first ever manual slr, a Nikon FM10 model. Unfortunately, I only got to take joy of the newly gadget for a brief 2 months time because it was stolen during our shoot for our Drama Film. It took me weeks of continued stress before I could actually get over and move on (imagine enduring the anger of my parents, the pressure to find the cam and the crook all while studying for my finals and working til dawn for my major projects in Media Production). 

Kodak Black and White Film
Still feeling blessed, I managed to get myself back on track and pass the said subject with flying colors and still was able to enjoy my last year in DLSU-D despite the unlucky incident. My group was awarded the Best Narrative Film for our short film "Cuckoo" during the annual student video competition, it was definitely one of my proudest moments. Working behind the camera is one of my passion that ultimately helped me land a job in ABS-CBN.
