A One Way Voyage........

I live life not the way I want it. I live life the way I decided. Decisions never always reflect what you want. Whether it's a mistake or not, it is the way God wanted it to be. Not known for now, but there is a reason, for I have died once, yet lived again. Be it fraught with upsets, at the end of the road, for as long as I can say "I have not harmed a soul", then it withstood the waves and the journey was perfect.-Falcon116

PRACTICE WITH A TWILIGHT TWIST



Being the first long weekend of the year (AUSTRALIA DAY), I am determined to learn something about my newly acquired toy from my brother. Took a lot of photos...with models of course....inexpensive ones (free actually)



I tried so dang hard to forget about Twilight, unfortunately, it just keeps popping up in my head. We went to the casino (mind you, I'm not a big gambler), and I saw this machine with a big Wolf theme. So I decided to forget and let go of a ten dollar note in my purse...just wanting to see the Wolf cry....Well wadayaknow! Made an eighty dollar return in my purse! All the while, only thinking about Jacob. Hah!


Anyway, I took some shots of my friends Mona and Cat. Then I decided to create a TWILIGHT theme on one (of the hundreds) of Cat's photos. This is my blog's version of Bella Swan-The Vampire....


The photos do not look professionally edited just yet, but give me a couple more months...or a year, I'll master this craft. I would like to say I love the camera, but how can I love something when I still don't know how to use it to it's full potential?

I am enjoying, however, the company of this powerful toy. If you have not noticed on this blog, my peer group has no shame, what so ever when it comes to facing cameras. We can already see projects lining up for my models...They've even got costumes ready, women magazines to study and locations to explore...Feeling professional kami lahat!!!


But in fairness, bagay naman sa kanila di ba? Tingnan nyo naman, Pang Twilight talaga.


Just have a look at Cat's transformation...


See below...We've already got a New Moon Version...Actually, NEW MOON CAKE version. That's Monalisa, dressed up like an oriental Bella Swan. Took Cat a few minutes to do Mona's make-up. Then, she did hers as well trying to impersonate a glamourous photo of Angelina Jollie, only to end up looking like a vampire...Pero pang Twilight na Vampire no!

Yeng, you must be enjoying your toy... it's nice to see some of your post-processed pics and editing, nice concept and models too. somewhat like my idol Manny Librodo (see link below) unsa imo gamit nga photo editor?

you can search for some sites on-line to help you better understand the basic functions of your DSLR, how to control your ISO, Shutter Speed, and Apperture. Youtube has some useful videos also just search for photography tutorial.

hope to see more of your pics soon... Just keep shooting

hi bong. Nice jud kayo. pero I am still learning. puro automatic jud ako kuha. But i'll learn. Adobe Photoshop ra gud ako gamit na editor. Ok na kay sayon ra gamiton. I've had a look at those butterfly shots you took. katong naa sa isa ka memory card...they're awesome. gi unsa man to nimo oi. unsa na lens imo gamit ato? kani isa ka lens dre na taas? or sa imo to d300? saon man og kuha mga macro shots oi...di man ko balo. Kato kay librado ba na site...gwapoha kayo ato iyaha mga shots oi, pero edited na pud to ba?

Thanks jud kayo bong.

Yeng, soon you will get rid of the full automatic modes once you know the manual features. you can start with aperture priority (A) to control your depth of field and let the camera decides on the Shutter Speed, or Shutter Priority (S) to freeze or blur motion and let the camera decide your aperture... The butterflies -yes indeed those are beautiful shots but I'm sure Dai2 will have a violent reaction if you say those are mine... she painstakingly took all of those while we were in bacolod using your cam but using my Sigma-105mm,f2.8 macro lens, a cheaper alternative lens to the original.
