In motion and getting in track

‘I’ Notes:

Exercise four of my photography class was one of the best. We were taught on how to shoot moving objects, how to catch the action using our lenses and how to capture and make it appear like a frozen element in the middle of a moving background.

It was really challenging. We had three days to submit the result for this activity. Most of my shots weren’t so good. I had to spent two rolls (36 shots) of films just to have pretty good pictures- a not so perfect but could be accepted.

These are some of the pictures I took during the third day of trying really hard. Not that perfect but at least, I learned how to do it.

My professor’s tip: a lower aperture while carefully following the subject- this really worked!

The prelim trial: The fast cars

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away? Remembering Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Cars’

Prelim shots: moving subjects

You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way

prelim shots: moving cars

I remember we were driving, driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk

motorcycle in motion

This time, I tried my luck with some motorcycles passed by UP CAL area, here are two of the shots, not so good pictures

A more improved shot, but still, a not so good one (there will always be next time) 🙂


Quality time at ‘Southwinds’

Family get together can never be replaced and still the best experience a person could ever have.

People can talk about and share different events or moments they spent with their families when they were kids- it’s fun. But having those life events with them aren’t as easy to have as the old times. When kiddos finally got their own lives and started to walk on independently, having quality time with these love ones hardly happens and sometimes doesn’t at all.

‘I’ notes:
That’s why when it’s time for us to celebrate my brother’s and sister’s birthday, I cancelled all my appointments and went on to celebrate with them.

It’s been a while since we had that kind of get together. I, once again, experienced the beauty of having a family. It was refreshing. It was really comforting.

We held the celebration in one of the resorts along Brgy. Pansol in Calamba, Laguna. The resort was named Southwinds (I guess because of the cold breeze that you can experience during the late afternoon)

It is a nice place. You can relax (because of Mt. Makiling’s view) and enjoy at the same time (because of all the amenities they have). The place is clean and cozy. Since it is a newly-opened resort, everything is in order; facilities are new and really inviting. They made the place very simple yet stylish and exquisite.

Aside from these, people around (I mean the staff and crew) are caring and warm. This is another reason, I think, why they have lots of customers even though it’s not in the peak season.

I included some pictures to make this entry a little more visual.

This is the facade of the resort. Nicely done.

Inside the resort-clean, refreshing and yes, relaxing

They have 4 big swimming pools
