Strobist Info/Setup shot below:
12 days from now, Karen and I will be celebrating our first anniversary! The past twelve months have been nothing short of amazing. But you know what's even better? The fact that I just know that the best is yet to come :)
Strobist Info/Setup shot below:
We were supposed to go out on a location scout today but that didn't materialize. Ended up back at home with an itch to shoot something... someone...
I'm glad I have a wife who supports my passion though and though :)
After weeks of asking herself 'should I, or shouldn't I', Karen finally did it! She cut her hair. And what better way to show the world her new look than to have a photoshoot? Oh and for the record, I think she looks beautiful :)
I suck at trying to make Wiki look nice :p

Yep, that's me up late again as usual trying to finish some last minute deliverables. But of course I got distracted and thought, hey this scene might make for an interesting photo! So there :p
PS. Oh and excuse the mess. Someday I'll get up to the task of cleaning up the garage :)

Guerrilla shooting once again. This time at the Mall of Asia/baywalk area. We were done in just a few minutes.
Mga Pinoy talaga kasi usi :p People were staring at us and it was a bit uncomfortable shooting with lots of people stopping to see what the hell we were doing hehe.
But I think for the time we spent there, the shots were worth it.
Now Nadine can send her friends back home some not-so-ordinary postcards of herself while she was us in the Philippines :)

Just a few more months and I will be married to my fiancee, Karen :)
The big day can't come soon enough!

4. All images shot using the 85mm @ f1.8
Had my first studio session with the 85mm f1.8. Still testing. Still satisfied.
Extremely satisfied to be exact.
This lens is insane. It makes each shot look like it was rendered in 3D due to the beautiful bokeh it creates. At f1.8 it really makes the subject pop out from the background. Plus it's sharp wide open too. Unlike my nifty fifty which is a tad soft at f1.8.
