Clouds Over The Makati City Hall (Time Lapse)

I was hoping the color of light would change dramatically but it didnt. However, subtle movement (cars, clouds) can be noticed if you look closely. :)

A Time Lapse Experiment

I’ve had my camera, a D300, for years now and it has this feature to shoot photos at pre-defined intervals. I’m practically hitting myself in the head for not trying this early on, but it’s never too late to give it a shot. So here’s my initial attempt at Time Lapse Photography. Camera was mounted on […]


Black & White Film Processing At Home

With all the resources out there, this should quickly get you into film processing quickly.

Goodbye Useless Books

Through the years, I’ve accumulated a good amount of books about photography, design, typography, business, legal, and, of course, several technical books. I’ve also had some Mario Puzo and Star Trek novels, maps, travel guides and other stuff. As you can see my taste in reading material is quite varied. I’ve read them at least […]

Would You Be Your Own Customer?

We’ve seen this scene many times. A company makes a product or does a service and sells it to a customer for bucks, moving on to the next customer, and forgetting about the last. Who cares whether our customers are happy? Who cares as long as we’ve made a sale right? Sadly, this is a […]
