On Photography

canon eos 30d

My fancy for photography actually started when I acquired my first ever digital camera, the Sony Cybershot DSC-S60 ((I didn’t have a camera phone yet then)). I was browsing through all the features of my camera because I wanted to maximize its use.

Learning the basics of photography and the limitations of this point-and-shoot camera, I realized that should I have a more sophisticated camera, I can at least duplicate those spectacular photos in photography books, magazines, brochures, newspapers, internet, etc., by professionals. I can even have my own personal collection (Now, what do you think of that? LOL).

My interest even grew deeper when I learned photoshop. I was wondering– if I only have my own salient photos to work on using photoshop.

Well, there goes the story…

The Photographer

Here’s a joke I found somewhere:

A photographer for a national magazine was assigned to take pictures of a great forest fire. He was advised that a small plane would be waiting to fly him over the fire.

The photographer arrived at the airstrip just an hour before sundown. Sure enough, a small Cessna airplane was waiting.

He jumped in with his equipment and shouted, “Let’s go!” The tense man sitting in the pilot’s seat swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air, though flying erratically.

“Fly over the north side of the fire,” said the photographer, “And make several low-level passes.”

“Why?” asked the nervous pilot.

“Because I’m going to take pictures!” yelled the photographer. “I’m a photographer, and photographers take pictures!”

The pilot replied, “You mean you’re not the flight instructor?”

The Beauty that is Tigbauan

Tigbauan, my beloved hometown, is a municipality in the province of Iloilo, Philippines. It is located 23 kilometers southwest of Iloilo City.

It acquired its name, like the majority of town centers, after a topographical distinction unique to the region – in this case after the Tigbao, a local name for a type of grass that used to swarm the countryside.

Tigbauan, a coastal town, was one of the landing sites for American Forces led by General Douglas MacArthur in March 1945 for liberation of the Philippines from the Japanese in World War II.
