A newbie photography enthusiast, I have been photographing my world hoping to understand what God has for me in this world. Every click of the shutter and every peek of the images I took adds to my journey.
Compositing is the art of combining different elements to have one great final work. As a photographer we can use two or more different photos to create a single image which may loo like surreal. But a simple text on a photo that sends out a message is a great composite as well. Check out my vlog below about how I do my composite works using simple software available.
This fishes are one of the sought after decorative fishes. They are often in pools in gardens but a few have them in aquariums.
This was a shot I took when I was still in Guam. One of the hotels has this amazing pond setup just outside of the restaurant in the hotel. After a great lunch, you can stroll and see these creatures as they swim around from one pool to another and from time to time raise up to either eat something above the water or I think catch some air.
Got this new wireless microphone system for my Canon DSLR 70D camera and I made a quick review to test the sound and its capability. Boya BY-WM5 comes with a transmitter and receiver that allows wireless audio recording. I was able to get one at lazada.com.ph at a good price. Check out the quick review below and leave comments and check out the item at the link below the video.
I was actually working on the sides as the logistics guy and the one handling payment to our printer but some mishap occurred in the last-minute and thus we were not able to deliver the product on the mid-December promised delivery date. Also due to the rushed processing, I was not able to get a proper product photograph to be used on further advertising campaign.
Below are some of the shots I was able to take before sending out the planners last December 2015.
I had already shared some of this images in the FB page but just want to add a few here together with the ones already posted. It is not easy shooting newborn. You cant pose them the way you want. Some restrictions on how far can you stretch that leg or arm, or at what side will the baby turn and how long it should be unwrap with its blanket. Babies are delicate and thus patience is a must. You keep waiting and waiting until newborn gives that yawn, that smile, that opening of the eyes, and all those cute things the parents would like their baby do and be captured in photo.
Also lighting is a big factor because flash or any other light source might agitate the baby. You can use side lighting using a big window but that limits the angles that you could take.
Also photo shoot should be planned well. Coordinate with the parents on when is the baby usually awake or sleeping or when is the best time the baby does interact so that time could be maximize.

I raised my hat to all those who do post processing work on photos. At times people criticize your work that it is overly done or not so professional and the like. My post processing arsenal is only made of Lightroom 3.6 and free software Paint.net. I just did a single photo to clean out the rest of the background and really it takes time and effort just to have it really nice and done before making another use of the image.
Check out one of my self-portrait photo which I did post process first before doing some other photo editing tricks.
