Tried again to take self-portrait using my tripod and setting my camera to Monochrome.
Shot some in Tungsten, B&W, and Sepia.
Check it out.
Got this idea of putting my signature where it can be easily seen in one of the photographers in Digitalrev.com and it turn out just right.
With flash on, I was able to get this Black & white shot. To add more light I left my room fluorescent light on(yes these images are shot in my room). My camera is set at Portrait and under Fluorescent
Set my camera on 10 sec timer and 3 shots and was able to get these two clear ones.
So far I like the outcome of my first monochrome self-portrait. Will experiment more on this style.
I have been seeing this waiting shed/Bus Stop that has this nice art but when I get the chance to take a picture of it, it was vandalized. It has this spray paint but still the art stands out, I hope kids wont vandalized it further.
Bayview Hotel in Lower Tumon Guam has this tile mural and I finally have the change to photograph it.

Some pictures along the way.
Been checking out some techniques done by photographers to make a subject in their photos stand out and this is called Color Splash.
It is basically either making the subject in focus in color while the background is in black & white or the other way around.
Below is my very first attempt. I know I need more practice.
I used a free software Paint.Net. What I did is made a black & white version of the original photo using LightRoom and adding it as a layer to the colored photo. Using my eraser tool in the layer with the black & white photo, I erased the area which I want to be in color which is the subject. Need patience to do such but would appreciate if someone can give us a better way of doing Color Splash.
Been trying night photography and to tell you the truth I really don’t know how it should be. I ordered a tripod to have my camera in “still mode” to prevent shakes and blurs associated with dim or night photography.
BLUEGREEN or GRAY?
SHADES of PINK?
A great way to showcase your photos is creating a slideshow or a video of your selected photos and share it as a video in social networks.
You can easily create one using whatever free software comes with your PC(Windows Movie Maker) and Mac(IMovie). Or you can use a free online slideshow maker like Flickr, Photobucket or an online free 30 sec movie maker Animoto.
Check my photos below using Windows Movie Maker
This is is made using Animoto
Just one of my figurine photographs. Hope you like it.
No particular project today. Spotted this plastic flower in a glass vase in one of my co-worker’s desk and I took photos of it practicing in adjusting ISO and other stuff.
Her work is primarily a photo of her levitating(some on the famous jump shot style). Some of her work are really great that it looks like she is naturally floating while her background seems in the normal mode.
I discovered Animoto and made my first Animoto video showcasing some of my flower photographs. Click the link below and enjoy.

Have been planning this project.
Taking a photo of the three wall murals I see every weekend. These murals along Lower Tumon here in Guam are a reflection of Guam’s culture. I prayed for a sunny day and this morning it was indeed sunny but with some drizzle here and there, well that is how Guam is at times it rains on the other side of the road while its sunny on the other side.
Hope you like my photos.
This mural is right across Guam Visitor’s Bureau.
The below mural is found in the 4 way intersection right in front of Hilton Resort & Spa.
I was only able to get one picture of the mural in the road going up to Kmart due to the drizzle on a sunny morning.
While walking and shooting the murals I got some other eye catching imagery.
