Ayala Triangle Gardens Festival of Lights 2016

Early November I saw the major roads within Makati Business District lit up for Christmas. That meant the annual Ayala Triangle Gardens Lights and Sounds show was just around the corner!

Ayala Triangle Gardens Sounds & Lights Show 2012

Philippines is known to have the longest Christmas season in the world, as ours starts when the -ber months roll in. Expect a colorful and festive mood in everyone, traffic and almost every week mall sales included. One of the things I look forward to every year is the Dancing Lights and Sounds Show in Makati.

Sometimes there are people who comes up to me and ask what camera they should buy.

Point and shoot? Mirrorless? Bridge? Micro four-thirds? DSLR? Canon? Nikon? Pentax? etc.

Most people would like to have a DSLR because they want to enhance their skills or just because it makes them feel ‘pro’. I usually tell them it depends on their needs and budget. Taking into consideration their personality, I give them a suggestion without giving a specific brand and mode. I’m no professional so let this infographic from Optics Central to help you decide on the most suitable camera.

Did you try it? Is your current camera or the camera you have in mind to buy a match for you? hare your thoughts 🙂

Now that the flood’s gone and life’s back to normal (at least here in our area), I’ve been busy cleaning these past few days. A freelance project on-going, a questionnaire I have to fill out and a couple of blog posts to be written, I have to finish all that while nursing myself back into health :’c

Anyway, I took a time off yesterday and decided to work on my Photoshop skills that has been not in use for months now. Here’s the end product:

This is the copy from Facebook. I’m having a hard time upload the original one (big file o_o). Click the picture to see it on Flickr. 🙂

I took this picture after our friend’s wedding last month in Anabel’s Tomas Morato, using my friend’s (the one on standing on the right) Nikon Coolpix P7000. Post-processing and layout done in Photoshop CS 5.5. The picture on the lower right taken by the owner of the camera during their trip in USS.

This was requested by a friend. I did my best and learned a few tricks on the way.

What do you think? I look forward to your comments! Back to coding/writing for now 🙂

Not every photo we took a shot of comes out great. It can turn out dark, unfocused or there are some photobombers around. There are a number of factors to consider – the camera itself, the lighting, the environment. I know most people know that already, so I won’t enumerate all of it here.

Starting my ‘save bad photos!’ series with one of my failed attempts to capture the beauty of a full moon.

I suck at putting watermarks before, since I wanted to use the color blue (which is my favorite :P)

Venue: Ayala Triangle Park, Ayala, Makati City

Date: November 17, 2010

My digital camera is not good taking pictures in low light places or during night time, so the image turned out dark (I honestly don’t use flash that much.) I can’t find the original image anymore, so you would see.

This is like how Jar of Salt save her photos (but she does it better ^_^). I enhanced this photo using Picasa, since I’m not that good with Photoshop. The maroon part is a tree with Christmas lights dangling on it while the building on the right is the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE).

Still I find this beautiful. 🙂

If it was possible, I would lay somewhere and do stargazing. I feel calm and happy whenever I see a lot of stars in the sky. This goes the same when I see a full moon, especially when a supermoon or it has an orange color.

A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon (or a new moon) with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth. I know this is kinda late but here are some wonderful photos of the supermoon last May 5 from Yahoo!.

Beautiful, isn’t it? Credits to those who took the pictures :3

I’ve been staying at home for the past couple of days, since I don’t go beyond my ten-minute immediate places to go to. It feels like forever and I’m very uninspired at the moment. Since I’ve been looking over the garage sale with my grandma since Saturday (there were people already buying that day since the items are organized already), I took a little walk around the village.

One of the small toys my Uncle bought home one day. Will try my hand on Toy Photography hmm..
Random pink flower on the street.
Random white flower with the pink one on the same bush?
Had to enhance this a couple of times using Photoscape since the tree part was very dark on the original photo :/

I ended my little walk with..

Fishball, Chicken Ball and Kikiam :3

Oh! First day of May and it rained! 😀

We’re going to have a garage sale on Sunday and my uncle and aunt brought the items here. I felt like taking photos of them to post on Facebook.

EDIT: Our garage sale is extended! 😀
