Life is Beautiful, Capture It

Capture the Light 
(Practicing Bo-keh exposures) 

After three months of absence in the blogging world because of various commitments from PEBA 2011 and the extra-ordinary missions I have at work, finally I find my way back to Palipasan.

For the last two months, I found my itchy finger on the shutter button learning the ropes of photography. My PEBA blogging friends have inspired me to pursue photography as an all consuming passion - among them are Ms. Jocelyn "Misalyn" Torres Gundan of Al Ain City Daily Photo my online mentor who have helped me decide to go for Canon Rebel T3i, the exceptional artistic talent of Ever Villacruz of Pamatay Homesick, and the multifaceted blogging talents of Pepe Cabrera of Camera ni Cabrera and Ruel "RJ" Pagoto of the Chook-minder's Lens have inspired me to take a new direction in blogging through photography.

But why photography? I always believe in the beauty of life, its purpose, emotions - love, pain and glory. While all these things can be perfectly written through blog, I still believe that incredible transformation of life, God's creation can be best captured in full details with lights, colors and textures through a unique perspective to tell its own story.

As I struggle my way into ISO, Aperture and  Shutter Speed, learning to become a photographer with the use of DSLR is a serious challenge - as there's always something new to learn, new directions to explore and new challenges to face which is I find fascinating capturing not only the physical beauty of creations but capturing the emotions of real life either in colors or in black and white.

As I bounce back to my blogging niche, Palipasan will provide space for my new photographs which I would like to share through blog. While my software editing skills in Photoshop is generally weak, I'm highly dependent on my camera's optimum settings. 

I'll be sharing with you my my photos hoping that it may will be glad to have you as my photo critique, please feel free to share your views and comments and in one way or another I hope that it may give hope and inspiration to my blogging friends, visitor and photo enthusiasts.  

Remember..."Life is Beautiful, Capture It!"

  5. Welcome back! Grabe kuya tuwang-tuwa ako seeing your photos here sa iyong pahina. Looking forward to seeing more of Qatar and beyond through your lens.

    Photo #1 is simply beautiful. Bokeh technique is pretty challenging. First time ko kumuha ng bokeh nung wala pa akong prime lens kaya medyo iba pa ang dating. Nang magkaroon ako ng prime lens na-inlove ako sa bokeh.

    Keep clicking kuya. It is humbling experience for a photoblogger like me na malaman na nakaka-inspire ako in my own way. Salamat rin kuya.
