|My very first shot of the moon. I used a Vivitar telephoto lens with a Canon entry-level camera. I was lucky, don't you think? The craters are noticeable in this picture. No post-processing was done with this picture.|
Now, with powerful optics built in smartphones, we could take pictures any time we want. I guess it's a good thing because we can readily capture precious moments and turn them into priceless memorabilia.
Whenever possible I would bring my Canon sniper with me, and shoot as many pictures I could. Although it's bulky and I look like a tourist with that shooter hanging around my neck (which I don't mind really), there's no greater pleasure in spending some time capturing regular objects and scenes in irregular angles. I am still honing my skills so please spare my amateurish pictures some mercy. I just want to share with you some pictures I think were taken rather surprisingly pleasing. Yes, I was quite surprised at how they turned out. Let's see them, shall we?
|These are lighting fixtures from Starbucks in BGC. It's made of metal but designed to look like silk shades. I really love them so I took a picture. It tuned out really nice.|
|I love this picture. I was eating at a Filipino cuisine restaurant in Megamall and thought of trying out my 50mm primary lens. The blurred background was good. This picture wants me to drink that ice-cold tea. I'm craving now...|
|This is one of my favourite scents from Bvlgari. My officemate once said that I smelled like ginger mixed with some citrus. Hmmmm.|
