|Young@Heart||26 May 2008|
From time to time we encounter something that touches our heart. Sometimes deeper and it goes to our soul. It can either make us cry, laugh or simply put a smile in our hearts and mind.
Check this out and see if touches your heart also.
|Cooperative Weather||23 May 2008|
I just came back from Tagaytay. It rained just after we got at the church. Heavy fog followed during the ceremony but it cleared up when we are about to exit the church.
I’m still preparing the pics, I’ll post the wedding asap.
|An exciting morning||22 May 2008|
This morning I took a timeout from work and just watched how David COOKed American Idol. The dude got some amazing talent I haven’t seen in a long time. The show was 2 hours of waiting of which David will win. Well, I’m glad talent overcomes popularity. I also like Archuleta for his consistency. It’s very rare that you see that in a teenager.
Anyway, Cook made such a wonderful rendition of Billie Jean, Hello and Always be my baby. Very talented indeed. I’d like to play Simon Cowell this time in one particular performance of David Cook. When he sang the Music of the Night, it was perfect except for the last 6 seconds where he became technical.
I love the Phantom of the Opera and that part when the Phantom sang the Music of the Night is the most seductive part of the play. It’s a song of seduction disguised as a lullaby. Becoming technical in any part of it will destroy the main objective of the song.
Here’s the clip.
Another excitement was when Lakers overcame a 20-point deficit in the first half and manage to win by four points in the last seconds of the game.
I am hoping for a Laker-Celtics finals. :)
|One moment for a great Mom||20 May 2008|
Last Thursday, Jun and Robert’s Mom passed away. I never met her and I can easily guess how great she was by just knowing Jun and Robert. Here’s a trivia, Robert has a the face of her mom tattooed at his back. :)
She is resting in peace now.
I’m not really sure if she knows it. Her two sons, Jun and Robert are the best wedding photographers I’ve ever known.
|Unobtrusive||17 May 2008|
The number 1 rule of being a photojournalist is to be unobtrusive. We try to move smoothly so that we don’t disturb the solemnity of the wedding. While it is not 100% possible, maintaining it to minimum is desired.
The challenge of wedding photo journalism is to find the best angle of that special moment. That perfect angle and perfect timing illustrate the very essence of that moment or the character of that person. That is something we always want to capture and for you to see.
The downside of being unobtrusive is that we can be easily blocked by anybody during the process of capturing that magical moment.
