Bagac’s White Sand

with 4 comments

We went back to Morong Beach last April. Our staff arrived filled with excitement, although it was a tiring 2 hour drive from Pampanga. We had everything planned the day before, and everything is set. Since we arrived late, nothing is left to do but to eat dinner and rest.  Although the ladies took a quick dip, but we’re too exhausted to do so.

Early morning the next day, I woke up and prepared breakfast for everyone. We had noodles and eggs with some tocino and longganisa. While enjoying our cup of coffee, we were thinking on what to do next. Aside from cooling ourselves on the beach, there was a suggestion that we go on a boat ride. “A good idea.” Normally, the boat ride is just a 1 hour trip in the coral reef area. There you get to jump in the open waters and enjoy the view of the corals. A little boring I guess, since you only spend an our on the open waters. So we asked the boatman to take us somewhere else, and there it is, far away from the busy streets, we stumbled upon this hidden sanctuary.

 It ‘s a 30 minute boat ride from Morong Star Beach, often ignored because of raging currents, but it’s all worth it. Some people call it “Tora-tora,” because its like an airplane’s tail. But we have no idea where we really are. A friend told me that it’s part of Bagac, Bataan. We enjoyed walking on its white sand, and explored a bit. It has this cave, filled with shells and other stuff. We enjoyed sitting back and took some shells and played with hermit crabs. Good thing I have my camera with me and took some shots of the place. I can say nature is the best.

 

It was all fun, you get enjoy the view plus the added benefits of nature. I was wondering about the benefits of negative ions that time. Since our work is mainly with computers, we are exposed to lots of positive ions. You often sit for 8 hours or more during translation, so it’s better if you can relax.

 

Well, we did had a good time, the pictures speak for themselves.

Photography – Purpose

with 2 comments

I’m on my way home when I saw this old structure and I immediately took a shot. 

I was just wondering about many things that time. 

All my worries, my deadlines, and many other things.

I was thinking that all of these things will come to an end. 

People like us, no matter how rich and famous you become, we cannot escape the truth that we will all leave this earth.

But how will other people remember me? I asked myself. 

My loved ones, my friends… 

After a short while…

I just thought, we just have to make the best out of this life. 

Find your purpose… that way, you can leave without regrets.

Photography – Low Light Conditions

leave a comment »

Shooting in low light is a challenge every photographer must overcome. Under low light condition, there are necessary adjustments that must be done. Aside from camera settings such as ISO and shutter speed, one of them is to keep the camera stable under any circumstances.

The solution: Using a Tripod or a monopod is a must when shooting under 60. This keeps the camera from moving, thus creating stable shots under low light.

Slow shutter

I used a monopod to get a stable shot

This was a shot I took using a digital camera last summer. Setting my camera on a slow shutter speed and using a monopod to get a stable shot.
