Kural Nights

A gig to give tribute to the old Punchbowl Philippines which is a venue for local bands during the late 90’s. Also a reunion gig for Almost Satellite and Supercharger. Here are some of the photos I took that night:

Throwback Thursday in Prints

_DSC2581

I found these printed pictures last week and it brought me back to the time when I had all the time in the world to do whatever I wanted. Now that I have a son and a life to sort out, my time is very limited. I wanted so much to get out there, travel, photograph people and life in general but I guess that dream has to wait for now.

This prints are taken with point and shoot cameras with uncalibrated laptop so some are too saturated and too bright. It’s funny that back then when I don’t have the “gear”, I have the time to shoot but now that I have a dslr, proper knowledge about photography, I can’t go out and just shoot. The irony of life.

Day 11. Landscape

I went a little bit too far with my landscape photo only because I find it hard to capture landscape. I see a scene and it is perfect but when I take a picture of it, I get disappointed and when I finish tweaking the camera setting, the perfect light is gone. The perfect moment is gone. I’m still learning a lot of stuff with this 30 day photography challenge and so far. I learned a lot already. I preset WB with this one and played around camera raw and tried selective coloring in cs5 which is a nice and handy tool. There’s this little voice in my head that’s whispering “that’s a little too far”, “too saturated”, “too bright”. I don’t care.

Here are some of photos I got on my two day landscape shooting. 🙂

Day 6. Low Angle

I’m running a bit late on my 30 Day Photography Challenge. I just finished sewing some additional compartments for my camera bag which the boyfriend bought for me from a bazaar. It was a make-up bag but it has a solid structure. I’m a DIY kind of girl so i figured, I could really make it work and I did. I’m excited to use it!
