Black and White’s where it’s at

Film scanning prices have soared (from 75php to 200php, wtf!) and it bums me out. I should really shoot more black and white film, and digitize with a dslr, or set up a darkroom and print directly to eliminate the need for high-cost scans.

Or you know, just shoot purely digital?

But hmm nahhh I love film too much

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: Rustic Mornings

One of the perks of being a Marikenya is that my favorite breakfast place Rustic Mornings is a stone’s throw away. My high school friend, Christine and I celebrated the new year (2015) in this quaint house-turned-restaurant full of interesting details and yes, good food! Going through the photos is enough to make me hungry:

The salad breakfast is the best food shot I have taken.. the colors pop and the green just looks so fresh I’m in love aagh ♥ It’s also as delicious as it looks (the salad anyway; the chicken fillet was meh, but the waffles did not disappoint). Another visit to this garden restaurant is in order!
