Foggy morning at baguio city

IMG_39301

You might think it is not foggy at all because of the picture, As you can see on the ground it is not foggy, I just took a picture where it is clear. I have been walking around searching for a place to photograph the fogs, from 5am to 8am (not exact) baguio city was covered with clouds I don’t know how it looks when you go to mount cabuyao.

Everywhere I go all I can see is fog its like I am in heaven walking around or floating above the clouds. I felt the cold and I am just wearing t-shirt.

Sunrise view at country club baguio city

As a photographer I am really enjoying taking pictures with a beautiful view like the picture you see above. 100 meters before I got to this location I am happy because I saw a beautiful view but while I am approaching I saw something that I didn’t like to see in my image, I saw a house below but I still took images because the sky is stunningly beautiful.

As I look back again with my image the house below did a good part in the image. I was thinking what will be my foreground if there is no house below? A plant? or a flower maybe? I think the house was just ok as a foreground it looks simple and beautiful.a

A Morning Word

This morning I was reading a bible verse and I just want to share it.

I know that this blog is about photography and I have decided to create a page to share some bible verses, I am not a very religious or spiritual man, I just want to share my faith and what I believe in.

Psalms 84:11

For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.

I believe that God will bless us all but how can God will bless us if we don’t obey and take action?

These words strikes me 100%, I’m gonna leave that question unanswered.

SM Baguio City at Night

SM Baguio

Before going to the mall I already pictured in my mind the image that I wanted to take so I don’t need to walk around and find the right composition.

When I got there it looks like the image that I am envisioning is not what I wanted to achieve, I took some shots and move to another spot and took another shots and reviewed the pictures and again I took severals shots with different compositions and still I could not find the image that I am envisioning, I don’t know what is lacking but I have one shot that looks a little better but not the image I wanted and that is the image above that you see, it is because I think the image is a bit balance and only few lights trails coming from the cars because there are only few passing cars.

There is another thing that I observe, there are fogs coming from the left I wanted to see fogs moving (I don’t know the right terms to use) but yes I wanted to see fogs moving around the area with longer exposure from 10 to 30 seconds but I could not do it because the image would be too bright because of the light from the mall.

But I am still happy with the image. l

 

The fountain at rose garden baguio city

IMG_3738

For the past few years I have been visiting rose garden to take some sunset images with the fountain. The fountain was beautiful that time and the lights are glowing. I think it was 2013 when it first seen in public and it was the main attraction every night and also surrounded with people just to witness the fountain dancing.

This year I visited one more time to take one more shot and I observe one thing, the lights and colors of the fountain are fading and some are not even working, there is no water coming out. d

I think baguio people are now bored visiting this place because they always see same thing every night. The government need to rebuild.

Landscape Photography – Shooting Moving Clouds

One of my dream in shooting landscapes is shooting moving clouds over mountains I tried it out and here is the image I got.f

IMG_3591

Because of lack of gears like the nd filter or dark filter I waited until evening just to shoot fog or the clouds.

The neutral density filter is a dark filter use in shooting at daylight with a long exposure. You cannot use nd filters at night you can only use the filter at daylight or before it gets dark. Try using the nd filter and compare it to the image without the filter, the effect has big difference,.. without using the filter the image looks boring but using the filter the image looks more dramatic. d
