Samsung introduces the new Peony TV LCD with true black

Samsung introduces the new Peony TV LCD with true black

Just taking a breather from my Siquijor post. And this is not a paid post by the way, I was able to attend one of Samsung Philippines’ product launch last Wednesday at Manila Peninsula Makati. Yes, that’s the day before the Trillanes Stand off in Makati happened. Again, bloggers were included in the company’s marketing wheel so a few were invited in this 3 day event. That was the last day and there were supposed to be some other bloggers on that day along with other media from TV and print publications as well. Well it seemed that the others rescheduled and came on different dates. As for that night I came with fellow invitee Ricky Manzano of ProjectManila. All photos taken with my Sony Ericsson K800i.

My Photography gear set up

My E-system set up

My E-system set up

I think I have been asked quite a number of times in comments here and people as well on what camera I use and why. Also there were questions if I ‘Photoshop’ my images or not and what gears do I bring when I travel. Well this post would serve to answer those questions. I posted my Camera History before but this would be nice to explain my current set up. Warning, this could get a bit technical.

Rico XR-2s SLR

Ricoh XR-2s SLR

I can’t seem to remember how I got interested in Photography. Ever since, my family has been fond of photos and we got piles of photo albums and pictures to testify. Maybe tinkering with those toy cameras that my Tito’s (Uncles) gave us also piqued my interest. But what really got me into serious Photography was in college when we had a Photography subject on our senior year. Since I needed a camera badly at that time, I asked my relatives if they could spare me one. My Uncle gave me his spare SLR camera Ricoh XR-2s, since he was now using those early releases digital camera at that time. It was a nice tough camera, but heavy as well. From there, I learned all the basics of Photography from shutter speed to aperture to composition as well as developing. Photography subject was really fun as every week our professor gave us photo assignments to test what we have learned.

Post Christmas

Our Christmas Tree

Our Christmas Tree

Merry christmas and a happy new year to you all people! been quite a while and the holidays seems to have just passed by without a notice. How was your Christmas? Did you spend it with your family? Were you able to recieve a lot of gifts? Were you able to GIVE a lot more?

I spent my christmas with my family and a lot of my relatives and little pamangkins. I was able to buy some gifts for some of them, like the new Nextbase DVD Karaoke for my dad since he really likes to sing, so he could sing at home whenever he wants to. I even had trouble with the Karaoke CDs and end up buying a Karaoke DVD then found I just have to push a button to take out the sound! How naive of me. Hehehe.
