Just a quick post from the boondocks.

Day One of the 5th Epson Fusion media adventure brings us to Tumalog Falls in Oslob. Cebu, without a doubt the most awe-inspiring cascade I’ve seen in the Philippines.

Nothing says Asian like a tin robot. Seriously, this was a cute touch.

Sunday afternoon and we decide to eat at the popular newish place called Pink Panda, located in the gentrifying girly bar district in Makati.

Went to Boracay over the weekend to attend a wedding. I took this as an opportunity to bring along my trusty Nishika N9000 lenticular 3D camera. Here are a few shots from the beach, both in stereogram and wigglegram. (red-cyan anaglyphs to follow)

Lomography Everyday

If you find yourself at the Trinoma Mall this early December, you may want to check out Team Manila’s LOMOGRAPHY EVERYDAY exhibit at the mall’s theater level. They’re exhibiting a lot of the cameras we love to shoot as well as some of the year’s best shots. Film and cameras will be available as well.

I’m coming home from a day trip to Pampanga, an excursion which involved a lot of eating and taking photos and was organized by Asus. We spent most of the afternoon familiarizing ourselves with the Asus Nexus 7 and the Asus Vivo book, the former being one of the best Android tablets I’ve tried and the latter the first Windows 8 tablet I’ve tried.

I mostly used the Nexus 7, the challenge being to use its camera, a FRONT-FACING 1.2MP number, to take good shots in and around the Prado Farms. How do you do that when either you shoot your photo with your head in the frame, or, you shoot blindly?

The answer? Skills. And a lot of body English.

Here are my shots.

Bespoke is always best.

Not so shabby, methinks! This just proves what superstar photographer Chase Jarvis keeps saying: the best camera is the one that’s with you.

Want a quick Lomography fix? Here’s the thing for you.

Team Manila, the distributor and Embassy of Lomography here in the Philippines will be holding a free Lomography workshop this afternoon at the SM City San Lazaro. Special guest speaker is Minde Alberto from Lomography Philippines, yay!
