If there was one thing I was really proud of… I guess it would be my skills as a photographer. I only have a Nikon D60 with a 18-55mm kit lens and a 55-200mm kit lens, SB-600 and a third-party battery grip, BUT I still manage to take decent photographs. I don’t use any software except iPhoto (just to correct the colour, or to make it ). Here are some pictures I think that look great:
So yesterday (Friday, Holy Week) my mother and I went out to tour churches around the city. It’s a Christian thing, I don’t know what it’s called. On our last stop, we came across this wonderful small shop that sells custaroons, a lovely mixture of custard and macaroons <3 And I must say, I was impressed with the interior design of the shop, the product packaging and of course the taste of their products. I beg you all, when you’re in Manila, you gotta try these out.
So since it’s the “-ber” month already, I guess I’ll fling out my wish list for this holiday season, Xmas! Since no celebrates Thanksgiving.. it would kinda suck. Anyway
The Zumi Digital: I saw the videos that this took and it is FANTASTIC! It’s like having your own little Super 8mm, without the film
Diana F+ lens with Nikon lens mount: The reason why I won’t get the Diana itself is because I don’t wanna buy the analog itself before trying it out, so it’s kinda like a free taste, except it isn’t free
Tokyo Dreamer Strap: Just look at that cool thing! When I get my Holga, I’ll use that for it’s strap :>
The Fisheye Lens Adapter: this costs 1/10th of the price of Nikon’s lenses, so why not?
Keep Calm Print: Everyone Photographer needs this
The Game of Photo-opoly: Kinda obvious
Photojojo! The Book: Great ideas for home-made gifts
White Balance Lens Cap: A must need
iPod touch: Kinda obvious why I want it
Nokia C6: Best consumer Nokia has made so far
Malakai 40: I love longboarding and this is perfect for beginners and cruising
Eye-fi pro x2: A must need, I mean how cool is this thing!
AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G: I love the bokeh on this one @-) I think it’s best one aside from the Zeiss series (duh, how can beat Zeiss)
LC-A+ Instant Back+ Deluxe Kit: The mother of all lomo cams and analogs (bows)
Fisheye No 2 Rip Curl Special Edition: I know I know, why get this if there’s a cheaper-lens-alternative? I just love the look of film photography, that’s why
SuperSampler – Rubber Blue: It’s a fun camera to have
Holga CFN 120 Green: Well why shouldn’t I?
As you can see, more than half of this is photography stuff. I will however be getting the Nokia C6 for sure (since my phone got stolen.. bleh
Shall update when I remember more stuff
