Throwback Thursday: Moalboal Sardine Run

Because happy month of the ocean! This sardine bowl was crazy beautiful and was the most challenging underwater shoot but also a ton of fun. It’s a stupendous sight to witness millions of tiny little fishes swimming in the same direction but will part like the red sea when you attempt to get closer. I’m so glad I have friends who patiently dive over and over while I struggle to frame both diver and sardines in the position I want. I’m ecstatic with the results though! Moalboal is definitely a place to return to; can’t wait to go back!

Throwback Thursday: Marikina Pool Shoot

When my high school friend returned to the Philippines during her summer break from grad school, I finally got to fulfill the promise I made to her a long time ago: a pool shoot! I dragged her and her sister to the swimming pool tucked in the condominium complex they were staying at, and thankfully we had the area all to ourselves.

I had fun shooting these dimpled sisters, and judging from their faces, they enjoyed it as well!

Throwback Thursday: Little Z on the Big Field

There is a serious dearth of kids in this blog, which is weird since babies and toddlers are my absolute favorite subjects to shoot. So let me remedy that today!

Spent this morning making whales and shrimps and octopuses and turtles out of playdoh for my godchild, making it tough for me to go to work today. How do mommies do it?? I miss him already!

Trails

I just had a cup of coffee and while feeling psyched I went on a blog-hopping spree and got super inspired (and crazy jealous) by this travel blog so I just had to post something on mine.

This is around a 45-minute exposure. The lovely thing about film and my Canon FTb (no batteries required, and with a mirror lock-up feature) is that I can leave it and it does its job. No need for stacking images on Photoshop!!

The yellowish patch at the bottom right corner is a cloud-covered moonset; also I think I was pointing at Orion here? The three lines of nearly identical thickness a quarter from the left is the belt. Haha I suck at giving directions. The thick line in the middle on the left is Rigel.  Ah what the hell, let’s bust out Stellarium for a clearer reference:

After fiddling with the date and time arrows, the Stellarium image matched up with mine. Now I have an idea when exactly I took the photo. I don’t remember the moon to be a thin, waxing crescent, but there you go!  Astronomy is fun you guys!! 🙂
