To Edit, or Not to Edit

30 Jan

I am a PAS (Point and Shoot Camera) user. I am very contented with my PAS camera becauseI can capture some great shots with it, mostly without post processing. Some even are surprised when asks me If I am using a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera.

Browsing photography websites that uses DSLR’s,  Although they achieve considerable distance in terms of picture quality, Most of them do Post Processing of their pictures using various Photo Editing softwares. Because of that, I always wonder why DSLR users do that because they already have a that kind of powerful camera.

And because I can’t find answers  anywhere  I consult dear old Yahoo Answers. So my question was :  Why does DSLR users usually use an Photo-Editing softwares in their photos? I usually come across some photography websites that promotes the use of Photo editing softwares. And I want to understand why? Because DSLR cameras are usually expensive so in to that sense it should have provide the best shots that it would not need to be edited by a Photo-editing software.

Luckily someone answer my question.

Hondo : “DSLR cameras are expensive because they give you complete control so that you can capture the best starting image. Point and shoot cameras apply post processing in the camera by increasing sharpness, color saturation, brightness, white balance, and several other things. DSLR cameras are designed to give you control by NOT taking the photographer out of the post processing, and instead allowing them to use the post processing techniques they desire using photo editing software later on.

ALL professional and advanced amateurs use photo editing software to process their images the way they want to get the image they wish. Photo editing software has taken the place of the darkroom in the digital age. A lot of changes were made during developing in the darkroom in the film days…now those changes are done using software.”

Even after a heavy rain there is always something to watch-out for. They say, that at the end of it is a leprechaun’s treasure. I say, just merely looking at it is a treasure. Makes me wanna think away all the problems in life for a little time.

The Tiki

If you don’t know a what a Tiki is, a Tiki refers to a large wood and stone carvings of humanoid forms in Central Eastern Polynesian cultures of the Pacific Ocean.  Well, the one in the picture is not technically a Tiki because it is not curved in a large wood or stone but instead it is curved in a large spoon on the handle part of it.

Flora and Fauna:001

10 Feb

So here comes my first post on my new segment on this blog. Anything about Flora and Fauna. The Flora is shot at the backyard of my cousin’s house Sorsogon, Bicol sometime in October 2010 with my mom and my little brother Sam. And the Fauna is shot in a Bahay Kubo near Bonga-Buyuan Gully also in Bicol but in a different trip with my 3 close Friends namely Lhisa, Karen and Fivie.


A flora (with a lower case ‘f’) refers to the plant life occurring in a particular region, generally the naturally occurring or indigenous plant life, while a Flora (with a capital ‘F’) refers to a book or other work describing a flora and including aids for the identification of the plants it contains such as botanical keys and line drawings that illustrate the characters that distinguish the different plants.


All the species of animals found in a particular region, period, or special environment. Five faunal realms, based on terrestrial animal species, are generally recognized: Holarctic, including Nearactic (North America) and Paleartic (Eurasia and northern Africa); Paleotropical (tropical Africa and Southeast Asia); Neotropical (Central and South America); Australian; and Antarctic.

A morning in Bukidnon

A morning in Bukidnon

The above photo shows rays of sunshine filtering through the misty canopy of a park in Cawayanon, Bukidnon, Philippines. I snapped this picture not long after sunrise on March 3, 2010. These rays are in essence local crepuscular rays. Shadowed regions between the much brighter rays result when leaves and limbs block out the sunlight; whereas unblocked light is scattered by fog droplets, giving the “beam” effect. The canopy here is a mixture of mature Indian rubber trees, acacia trees and mahogany trees.

Should I wait for the Sun to rise or go before it has fully risen?

31 Jan

Yesterday ,at dawn ,I went biking alone to Sta. Elena. I stop at the a bridge to look around the surrounding and figure that the sun is about to shine. I went on biking, then suddenly the hind wheel got busted. I slow down. I stop, and try to digest what just happened. I was about 3 kilometers away from home, no money on my pocket and a bike with a busted tire to carry.

The sun is still about to rise as I walk with the shameful feeling every time I come across people from there. Thank goodness the sun hasn’t risen yet. Only a few people are at the streets as I walk by, slowly. I stopped at the bridge that I mentioned earlier . The sun is about to rise. Great! Continue reading
