Hola! I made my second blog on tumblr last month and i will use that as my photoblog. In short, a place where i could dump all my photos because my Flickr only displays the recent 200 ones and Facebook’s album limits me to 200 also! What’s with the two hundred huh? Why not make it two hundred and one. Haha. Anyway, I delight in photographs, snippets and musings taken through my lens. Photography is my way of showing you how i see the world in my eyes without too much post-processing. It freezes and preserves time. It immortalizes every thought or idea seen or maybe even felt. Besides creative writing, i really love taking photos of everything i like and anything i can imagine. Some use photography as a profession, some use it as a hobby. Nonetheless, it a way of expressing one’s thought or emotion that go beyond words. Click the photo to take you to infinity!
I try to take a photo everyday. Photos that can tell a story. Photos that can communicate without words being said. Photos that can influence or change anything. Photos about my adventures and daily life. Photos that can let you read what’s on my mind. Photos that can inspire. This is basically my collection of original snapshots and illustrations, such as painting and drawing.
What blows my mind most are candid shots. I absolutely love capturing random burst of laughters and bright smiles in an instant. It focuses more on spontaneity rather than technique. I appreciate it more than staged portrait photography. Landscape photography can take you to places where you have never been before and can let you feel the moment where the photo was taken.
I used to capture images and ideas with a simple digital camera but it didn’t limit me from what i want to portray. But since i have my new baby Canon 550D now, i hope i will be able to inspire people through my photos more. Maybe i can own a lomo camera soon as well. I aspire to travel the world and take as many snapshots as i can. I try to be better. I believe that they are beautiful because of what’s in them, not because i took them.
Photos are one of the few things that last in this world when everything else changes. I can say the world is a big canvas and i capture life through painting with my camera.
