My friend asked me to take her students’ graduation pictures two months ago. Working with kids is so stressful and I honestly don’t have enough patience so I may have scolded some of them a few times hehe but after seeing how the shots turned out on my computer, everything was definitely worth it. Teehee.
I need 1x1 pictures for school but I can’t go to a studio yet until I have this annoying zit on my face. Ugh. But oh wow it just occurred to me that I can ask them to just photoshop it. Yes. Right. Thanks Tumblr!
I sometimes think I’m too old for Christmas. It just gets lonelier every year..
Here are some of the photos I took when I covered a party in Forbes Park last month. There weren’t much people around which made it so challenging to get a good shot. I had fun though, watching conyo “kids” party with their friends, then get fetched by their drivers and yayas at around 11pm. It was a good night and definitely a new experience for me.
Pop art homework for my history of art and design class.
My topic for tomorrow’s presentation in speech class! So stoked and nervous at the same time.
These questions are long overdue and I’m honestly thinking of just ignoring them or answering privately but..anyway..
heytiny- Thanks! So do you! Welcome back to Tumblr. :)
Anonymous- nope, just a hobbyist. My course has a lot of photography subjects though.
Anonymous- ha ha ha omg. You know what, just a few seconds ago. When I opened a new jar of Nutella. The moan the lid made, oh, maaaaaan.
loowy- Supppp Louie! First of all, is this the hacker asking? Because I remember you telling me that you got hacked a couple of days ago.. and why so random? Anyway, I’d choose a gun over a knife. I’m too chicken for a knife. I want to be able to defend myself from afar.
loowy- (again?) Seryoso, e bakit ang emo mo? Haha. Take lots of pictures and videos of you and maybe voice recordings too. And ask for your bank details and address so I could swing by your house and take anything I want.
O hai, loowy, I just realized that the sexy question might also be from you, judging by the one minute interval! What, too shy to ask my sexy moment so you went anon? Kyot.
Found this commemorative New York coin lying around my grandma’s house when my siblings and I visited her on her birthday a few weeks ago. My grandpa’s name is engraved at the back and so as the date he visited the Big Apple.
It feels so good to have something that connects us, even if it’s just a coin, you know? He died long before I was born and listening to my mom’s stories about him makes me wish I had a chance to meet him. I’m so jealous whenever I watch movies or hear people talk about their grandpas and I can’t pitch in a memory of us two because we never had any. This is all I have. A coin. And my grandma, mom, aunt and uncle’s stories about a great man that was my Papa Nards.
I wish to visit the city that never sleeps someday, too. Oh one day, one day..
Tried applying what I learned in my computer graphics class today and ta-da! I won’t tell you whose portrait I’m trying to turn into vector art because you might not see the resemblance so..
I’m not finished yet though. I tried to add details but I’m already tired so I think I’ll just continue it tomorrow or..whenever.
Please be kind, it’s my first time to try this. Haha
Conquered Quiapo today and acquired ammo for my guns (it sounded better in my head but whatever)! What a steal. Now I want to hunt down every Kodak kiosk and hoard cheap films. Seriously. They won’t be around for so long..
Finally got my hands on this baby! Say hello to Diana! I’d give her a different name (as all my cameras have names) but it already feels awkward naming her differently. So I’ll just call her D.
It comes with a very cool “Shoot Forever” Diana Mini Photobook and manual that inspires me to take photos and already finish the roll!
Didn’t know it would be THIS small. Yeah I know the word “mini” kinda gives it away but I was surprised when I finally get to hold one.
I can’t wait to shoot with it. <3
I originally wanted to buy a Diana Mini last Tuesday. I’ve read so many reviews about it and I’ve been dying to own one ever since. But..I chose to spend my money on shoes instead because the flood ruined my favorite pair. Ugh. Priorities.
So I asked my brother if he’s using his film camera (which is basically the same, just more..technical, I guess) and he said no. I asked him if I could borrow and he gladly handed it to me. My brother’s the coolest.
I cannot wait to experiment with it and venture into film photography. I haven’t tried shooting with film (manually, at least, because I have a Superheadz camera but that has only one button) so it will sure be a challenge for me. It’s also loaded with an expired film and my brother told me that the pictures will turn out lomo-ish. Great! And if I still want a Diana Mini after this, I’m going to rush to the nearest Team Manila branch and make myself happy. I am so excited. For the mean time, I will take this Pentax every where I go. I can’t wait to bring it to school tomorrow. And other places, maybe? I tend to get shy whipping out my camera in public but those days are over. I figured I wouldn’t learn anything if I am shy all the time. And besides, there’s nothing to be ashamed of, right?
Oh I hope my first roll would turn up nicely.
Last Friday, I attended an investiture of some org at a public school. I was supposed to take pictures of it, but then it rained, so the gymnasium got crowded and it was so hard to move around. So I was just sitting around, waiting for the event to finish, then suddenly, this kid, all smiles, tapped me on my shoulder and started laughing. I’m assuming he’s a kid of one of the parents and his sibling is part of the investiture, and like me, he is bored too. I somehow got to play with him, and I was touched by how innocent and happy he looked like, so I whipped out my camera and took pictures of him. I guess he got shy when I took photos of him but he still looked precious.
I’d give anything to be like him [again.] Innocent and carefree. I seem to have lost myself growing up.
