Photography Event: #dpp9 at BGC

#dpp9

March 21 was the day DPP celebrated its 9th anniversary. Lots of activities and prizes were given and lucky participants got some quality cameras and freebies.

Also had some great learnings from master photographers and imagineers. Was also able to get shooting advises shooting a live model. Also, some announcements were said, but I leave that with DPP to make on the official page. Also, the recent KLM Assignment Amsterdam was shown and the work of Paul and Marc was totally cool. We are also joined by 5th placer of the HIPA, James Singlador. He shared with us the experience he had. He just termed it “living the life of the rich and famous.”

Aside from the learning activities, a few celebrities graced the event. We had Marian Rivera for the book signing of Jay Tablante’s Geekology 2.0. We also had Manny Pokyaw for the entire day actually, since there was a boxing ring.

At the evening discussion the topic was all about going professional. It was really an enlightening talk together with the original DPP forum members and members who eventually became professional photographers.

To give you a quick idea what was DPP all about, check out this short timelapse of all the photos I’ve taken while I was in the event:

 

 

Some few edited pictures. Will post others once done.

Practicing photo editing

Carshow model Manila Auto Salon 2014

It has been awhile since I edited some of the pictures I have taken. As they say if you don’t use it you lose it.

Photo editing skills are as important as your photography skills. Not all photos you take will be perfect. There will be photos that might be good or even great but a few details needs to be change to make it the “photo”.

I have always mentioned that I have been a fan of paint.net for most of my photo editing(because it’s free) but I do have an old version of Photoshop Lightroom 3 that helps me quick photo post-processing. I am not yet taking photos professionally(yup still more of a hobby) but at this early stage self-improvement once one starts to bring photography to the next level.

Below are some edited photos from my recent 2014 Manila Auto Salon photo shoots.

Canon 70D test: 2014 Manila Auto Salon at SMX

Canon 70D test at 2014 Manila Auto Salon SMX Mall of Asia

My old “kabalens”, Ormil Go, invited me to the 2014 Manila Auto Salon last November 22, 2014 at the SMX Mall of Asia in Pasay City. It so happen that I am still testing the Canon 70D.

The Canon 70D is believe to be one of the best mid-range camera for video and Canon is regarded as the better brand of DSLR camera for taking videos. Also besides the professional look of the Canon 70D it is packed with 20megapixel, 7pfs, and the Dual AF. So besides the video test I did of course I took pictures of the cars and the models in the car show. Check them out below:

Event Photography: Gatchi’s Getaway at Tagaytay, Cavite

The company I work for recently held their  Team Alignment(aka Team Building) session at Gratchi’s Getaway in Tagaytay, Cavite.

And since I have to participate I was not able to take lots of photos for the event. Much of it are the landscape I took after the event. I am currently processing them but for now check out this photo of a dog in Gratchi’s Getaway.

UFO in Guam?

Spotted this alleged UFO


Was preparing my sandwich for work and as I was washing my hands I noticed this weird white inverted “V” like thing in the blue clouds. I thought it was a cloud but as the passing cloud pass the thing was still there. After a few seconds it seems to move and after a minute it was moving fast. So I thought it was I was thinking, a UFO(Unidentified Flying Object).

So I got my camera and switch to my Sigma Telephoto Zoom lens to get a  better look on this alleged UFO. Check out the image I got below:

Spotted this alleged UFO
Is this an alien invasion of Guam?


I thought it was really a UFO that I started day dreaming of having a UFO tracking career but as I look at it is indeed a rocket. I wonder why a rocket is launch early morning and more why is there a rocket launch. It could be a test rocket or probably it is a rocket carrying a satellite to orbit the earth, I don’t really want to speculate it is one of those North Korean missiles.
