Cokin Filters Group

I have just created a group for discussion of the uses of the Cokin Filter System. It would be great to have some members and start some discussions and have some examples of work using the filters.

Obama aides release photos of first family

In this article from Washington Post, we learn that Obama aides have released photos of the first family to counter paparazzi.

Apparently, the tactic is intended to dampen the media maelstrom that inevitably revolves around the President-Elect, and his family in particular.

I expect that many other celebrities will be taking a similar proactive approach… Continue

Be Back In A Week :)

On this the eve of my vacation I learn I'll have no internet for the duration of my stay. (..some vacation, eh?) So I figured I should upload the last of my pictures that have been waiting in the wings. They come from a disposable camera that I took apart, loaded with some Fuji Superia 400 speed film, and taped up. It took some really neat over saturated images, something I intend to repeat with 400 slide film in AZ that will be cross processed in our C-41 processor when I get back. I hope you… Continue

Inspiring Storm Photo

This photo was taken by Garry who said: "The left over of a storm moving out to sea. This cloud really got everyones surprise. Nature composed this so well we were all standing there just flabbergasted."

Photos in the cold!

Well I have gotten all geared up to take some new photos of the landscape here.. But it's freezing cold outside.
So here is my options:

1.) I can brave the cold, and go outside and take nature shots and things of that sort.


2.) I can stay inside, drink hot coffee and take shots of very strange things around my home lol


I think I might do both, a little compromise if you will lol

Look for the pics!

photo size

Can anyone tell me what they do when downloading photo's. Do you do as I do and reduce them [using Irfam or the like] or do you use another method? Or do you leave them at the original size?

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WITH NEW DIGICAM, U MAY BE CONFUSED TO KEEP THE BUTTON PERMANENTLY ON auto focus/auto exposure mode,....not a big problem......keep this in times using Manual focus is better.,....especially when your frame has many objects of varying distances.....IN cases where the main subject is obstructed by other elements in the frame, u shd considering switching both, your camera and the lens to the Manual mode, so that u are able to focus properly on the main… Continue

Soon enough I'm off on vacation in the beautiful land of Arizona, sun bathing on the red rocks of Sedona. I've been only once before and that time(years ago) I had a 4mp super zoom from Olympus. Not a bad camera, but no where near what I have now. Since I had "good" pictures back then I expect the pictures I bring back in a week to be amazing. And since the comments are what make this site so interesting, I pose… Continue

I'm a movie buff. Therefore, I'm a DVD nut. I used to collect VCDs, but we all know what happened to that trend. Again, I'm a DVD nut. It may sound "terrible" if I tell you that I buy original discs AND "copied" or "bootleg" discs; but, you gotta understand that in the Philippines, getting original discs of foreign movies is almost close to impossible. I know, there's the Internet and we can always order online; but, does buying a "pirated" copy of an original disc that's only meant for my own… Continue

Broken home shoot

I have been wanting to do an expressionistic photo shoot for a really long time now.

I have had these visions (maybe not the best choice of words) about a weeping, allbeit goth, mother with her spiffed up child comforting her in a delapedated environment. I explained my desire and the whole getup to a friend tonight, and one of his best friends is willing to model for me, and have either her son or daughter model as well.

I am VERY excited about this, as I have admired her… Continue

Baby-steps: Garage

Hello again sports fans....

Well, there comes a time in a man's life when he just has to say:


Yeah, so I spent the first day of my new year gutting, errrrm, I mean cleaning, my garage. My intention is to treat and paint the concrete, redo the walls, setup backdrops and very own portrait studio. =D

I got rid of so much useless stuff it wasn't even funny. I took my tripods, lights,… Continue

The New Year has begun...and so has my need to do something...

The New Year has did when January 1st came...but, I felt it really has just begun. I actually am excited about this year since I've so many plans that I sincerely wish I would be able to accomplish very soon. I plan to do a couple of things like: 1.) buy a new 18-200mm lens kits for my NIKON D40, 2.) get a condo unit, 3.) get a compact car and 4.) pay off all my credit card debts (I used it to buy an ACER ASPIRE 4530 LAPTOP, my NIKON D40 and a new suit). My mind's set and my… Continue

But it didn't stop us from lighting fireworks as midnight grew near.

Happy New Year! I always wanted to try the slow shutter speed hence which resulted here.… Continue

Santa was generous this year

I have figured that I must be one really good girl. Last year for Christmas, Santa brought me my first DSLR, a Canon EOS 40D which came with a kit lens, a 17-85mm IS USM lens. Not too shabby I say!

In the course of a year I have become even more addicted to photography, focusing on trying to understand the technical aspect of the art (but no closer to understanding). I also acquired 2 other lenses and a couple filters, lens hood and Photoshop CS3 among other lesser photo editing… Continue
