Last Sunday Marc Malabanan and his group organized a benefit for the Philippine typhoons that have hit last month. The event raised all together $4,500 dollars (including clothing and other accessories). All day the filipino community gathered around to eat, watch, entertain, and support the people in need. These photos are some examples of the event. A successful event for a tragedy that occurred.

Potluck Party
Potluck Food
Marci and Donna
The Girls
The Girls 2

It was a fun Sunday with friends, food, and wine. Everyone brought their own food to share and everyone had a good time. I loved every minute of it. These kinds of gatherings help me to connect more to my friends. The food they cooked was amazing! Not to mention how much they cooked! My stomach was full! Most of the potlucks I've been to my stomach still growls. Hahahaha. Great job guys. Cooking for friends is fun. You should try it.

Mike, Jesse, and Frick at the Gym

>Mike, Jesse, and Frick at the Gym




There's a Gym at Kuppajoe where my band, Elmo Marconi, practices. The Gym lights were off, but there was still some light illuminating through the window. I had my friends stand right where the light illuminated and this is what I got. The light gave a warm color to my subjects. It was fun to shoot and for future projects I could use this idea to my advantage.

Practice Shots (Minolta Film Camera)

Friday, October 2, 2009

























Here are some of the photos I've taken using only one roll of film that I received from my lab tech Dan Wong. These are just shots for observational purposes to practice on cropping and to not depend on looking at my digital camera screen for results. I forgot how difficult it can be to be selective toward what you photograph. Having the technology we have today most photographers lose the integrity of finding the perfect moment when it arrives. I want to embrace moments quickly and slowly to have more feel with each shot I take. So here it is. Practice shots with my Minolta (oh by the way the Minolta was bought from a friends yard sale for only $5 bucks. Killer deal right?

Welcome to My New Blog!

Thursday, October 1, 2009

So I've decided to leave my Myspace profile to find another domain that would help me network my work. Having a Myspace account limits my ability to let everyone in on what I've been working on. Most of those photographs are lost now and I can't really use them for anything. Anyone that has some of those photographs can take them and let everyone know that I photographed it. This time I will choose better photographs to display and will make the effort on working harder on crafting a perfect photo. I have a lot of ideas floating in my head and having a new place with the experience I have now makes it exciting. So.. off I go! Welcome to my new home!
