Photography, reactivated!



It's been 4 years now that I've last shoot a nice photo, should I say :). Way back in January of 2008, I bought a Nikon D40X DSLR camera. It's just an entry level DSLR camera I think. I bought it because I was fascinated by the photos taken by a friend at the company I was working (HP), named Erick. And also I wanted to explore the artistic skills in me. I bought the camera at Henry's along Hidalgo St. in Manila. I think the price was around P 30,000.00. I bought some books about photography and attended a seminar on basic photography lightings. I've learned a lot from those experiences, from the shutter speed, aperture, ISO, metering and basic subject composition.

After all the learning, I started photo shooting in different places... From Makati to Corregidor to Subic Bay in Zambales then at Pearl Farm in Davao.. In Dapitan... and even in Thailand... and of course, Bohol, my home... So I want to share some of my best shots from those trips...

Let me start with a night shot at Loboc river...

Another Loboc river shot...

The ruins of world war 2 at Corregidor island...

Sunset at Subic Bay, Zambales

Now, for the new photos I shoot earlier...

This is at the apartment. After days of rains, the sun shines. The sky was so blue that I was tempted to take a shot...

At 5:00 in the afternoon, we went to Balwarte, Baclayon to take some photos with my boo, ramil - a photography enthusiast, and clien... Here are the best shots, I believe... ;)

Panglao Island as seen at Balwarte...

Another angle of Panglao Island...

A silhouette of a student studying her lessons... Not really sure if she's studying or just reading something... I took a shot from behind without her knowledge ;)...

The moon rises on the other side of Balwarte...

And lastly, my boo, nolie... ;)

I'm not really an expert in photography. I'm still learning on this stuff... I'm always trying hard ;)... Besides, I still have the basic lens (18-55 mm). Hopefully I can buy a 35 mm 1.8 prime lens in the near future. I hope that you will appreciate my shots. Feel free to use all the photos for whatever purpose you may have. You can give me a credit or not, it doesn't matter ;). If you need a high resolution, just email me at roy@printbit.com. Thanks for reading and have a good one! :)
