Basic Photography Workshop

My friend Ivy and I was fortunate to get a limited slot for Basic Photography Workshop conducted by Leonard Pe at Notre Dame of Dadiangas University, GSC last November 21, 2009.
I love taking pictures and I'd like to explore more about photography and the techniques. Since I am only amateur in photography, I was elated when I heard from Leonard that he will be conducting a workshop, since he is a professional and best photographer in town. I grabbed this opportunity. He tackled about Principles of Photography, Composition Techniques, Camera Operation, Post Processing Workflow, Rule of thirds and Practical Applications which I enjoyed a lot after the discussion. Afterwards, he asked us to submit our best and favorite photos we just captured for critics.

1. Orman Manansala 2. Ivy Juy Montemayor 3. Cidy Bascon 4.Ric Dumalay 5.Toots Lim 6.Raymond Lopez 7. Sherwin Nemaria 8.Prince Losaria 9.Ferdinand Mortejo 10.Brian Congson 11.Geraldine Cayabyab 12.Carolyn Tanudtanud 13.Tom Markinson Jo 14.Dazzle Anne Duterte 15.Maureen Kaye Duterte

Air Supply Concert Experienced

It was a great experienced for me to watch Air Supply concert specially when I had a chance to have a picture taking with them =)

Someone Who Believes In You

I was so elated when I heard Air Supply is coming to Gensan specially when Bariles the author of Gensan News Online Mag is having " What Air Supply Song Are You'? Blog Contest , it's difinitely "SOMEONE WHO BELIEVES IN YOU". I think this will be my chance to see Air Supply up close. The AIR SUPPLY CONCERT IN GENSAN will be on October 2, 2009. Thanks to the very generous Concert Producer Mr. Michael Wee the owner of GRAB A CRAB RESTAURANT and Coffee Club 101.

"Someone Who Believes In You" - this is the song that I can relate. These are the three paragraphs that I like most in this song:

When there's a dark storm in your horizon
And you think you can't get through it

Just put your hand in my hand
And I'll show you how to do it

When the future looks uncertain
You can count on me to be there
And when your heart and soul are hurtin'
Just look and you will see me there

Just follow where I lead
I'll give you what you need
A love that's always
And someone who believes in you

When I was a kid I liked Air Supply's songs. The first time I heard their music was when my father bought a concert video in abroad. We watch it on betamax with relatives and that was the moment I was enthused about their songs. It was the first band I've ever known during my childhood years. It was also a memorable night for me while watching the video because my father caught me thumb sucking, he put hot chilli on my thumb. That was my last thumb sucking I ever had.

Everything in life happens for a reason. I've experienced a lot of ups and downs in life. I remembered during my childhood years I can say that I lived a wonderful life. Life is like a wheel. One day, some circumtances happened. The life that I used to have was gone. I was shocked of course. But what can I do? Life must go on. Our lifestyles changed which I'm not used to it.

Life was really hard that time for me, so many adjustments must be done. Sometimes I asked God, '"Why us? Why my family? ". As time goes by, my questions has been answered. As I look the entire picture, there was always a purpose for all . Those were the misery, happy and very special times for me. I've learned what really life is. It's not always you were on top or down.

The line of this song catches my attention, reminds me that I believe that God and my family will always be there for me and I can rely on them. They give me strength to continue and be inspired to live a good life. When things get rough, I know whom I can turn to. I know whatever I do, they believe in my abilities. I believe that there's always light at the end of tunnel. God will lead me in the right path and I'll follow where he wants my place in this world. I know I am blessed and loved by God and I am not alone.

The Air Supply in Gensan Concert is a major production of Dreamwork Ventures Inc.'s Platinum Concert Series 2009, in the cooperation with the City Government of Gensan, the Gensan City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. , ABS-CBN. Other partner are Grab a Crab Restaurant, MISO Hardware, San Miguel Corporation, Coca Cola Bottlers Inc., East Asia Royale Hotel, Coffee Dream, Giacominos, NY Fries and Dips, Gaisano Mall of Gensan and Gregoria Printing Press.

Madonna Biceps Photos shocked me because of her veins. Maybe because she have a very low fat that is why her veins pop. But on the other half we are just human our beauty will fade away. In fairness to Madonna her face doesn't look like her age. She's still young looking. According to Tracy Anderson her personnel trainer, Madonna works out 2 hours a day and drinks coconut water to make her energy high level. I have few photos here, you will be the judge if what can you say to her biceps. We do love Madonna and consider as one of the best performer on stage.

Mount Hood

Mount Hood a Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. Multnomah Tribe called it Wy’east. Hot and dry days raised the fire risk. It is now prohibited for public cutting firewood. Even for those who have permit except for those industrial activities. Campfires are still allowed, forest officials informed campers to make the fire small and should be not left unattended. Campers held responsible for the cost if campfires escapes.

I was amazed by the photo and how beautiful for camping with family and friends. When was the last you had camping?

Erin Andrews video link

Erin Andrews ESPN sports reporter violated her privacy and videotaped when she was undressing in her hotel room without her consent or knowledge. It has been now a popular in the internet search engine. Hackers grab this opportunity to take advantage. Some links claiming they have the video only to find out it is a computer virus. So you have to be careful clicking the links.

Erin's Lawyer made some actions already and those people behind this would be prosecuted by law.

For now, I have to be extra careful whenever I am in the Hotel. Who knows it might happen to me even though I'm a not celebrity..
