Old Photo Prints in Storage Destroyed By Termites

Back in the day when we used film, I was able to visit New Zealand and took my first trip around the country and took photographs. Ever since then I returned as often as I can and took new photos and retook a few shots from back then. Though I didn’t display the old prints in my studio, I was rather fond of those old photos, no matter how badly focused and overexposed some of them were. It was very unfortunate news when I discovered…

I just got back from my adventure in Atlanta, and it yielded me a lot of beautiful photos to add to my portfolio. It was just a quick trip to accompany my mother to her friend’s house in Atlanta. She was very insistent for me to go with her so I cannot refuse. It will be like a holiday for the two of us because we rarely spend time together since she lives far from my place.

It was a very fortunate experience to be invited to join Charlotte-based photographers for a week-long photography tour.

Landscape Photography and a Slim Body

When it comes to landscape photography, you will need to do a lot of hiking and positioning yourself at the right place to get the right angle. Unfortunately when you’re a bit overweight, or in my case obese, this becomes a hurdle in your new hobby or career.

My First DSLR Camera and Photography Contest

I’ve always been fond of cameras since childhood, my first camera was a cheap one that you had to wind up, I had a lot of fun with it but film was hard to get since I only had my allowance to buy it with.
