crossing the 1,000,000 alexa page rank

Finally I am crossing the 1,000,000 alexa page rank. Since I am not that good in SEO, working out this page rank is some sort of a hard work for me. I’ve tried several ways but I am not that diligent enough to maintain those tactics to increase my rank.

Now im happy that adgitising is really working for me and I have seen its result; it brought me a good traffic and increased my alexa page rank and not to mention the daily earnings. I am looking forward for more traffic and a higher page rank.

A good find: A Fancy Desire

As I draw closer to the big day, I’ve got no time for a photo shoot. So while running short of pictures to blog, I dig on my hard disk and found old pictures that caught my interest. This picture was actually taken two years ago by my friend-colleague Raquel who is also a photography enthusiast and was actually one among those many friends who influenced us to venture on photography. Those were the times when photography was still out of my interest. Taken at Mercato in Dubai, I sat down, and practice my post processing skills and produce something in order to avoid my blog being on a discreet mode. Oh by the way, the model is also a photography enthusiast, introducing my friend-colleague tintin.

Aina's Diversity

It’s a long weekend. Missing my family, been gazing the pictures on our last family trip to SG, and while thinking of something to blog, I found this portrait of my sister interesting and finally had something in mind. So after my Saturday swimming routine, I sit down in front of my pc, had a quick review about layer mask and tried to practice layer masking in photoshop. Pretty well, here’s the result.

Nikon D7000

picture from
Months ago, many have been waiting for the release of this new Nikon DSLR, Nikon D7000. I myself have been constantly checking several online camera shops to check its price in the market. So what’s new with this Nikon D7000?

This light weight and durable magnesium alloy body employed Nikon D7000 is a DX-format CMOS image sensor with 16.2 megapixels, wheedled to gather more quality light through sharp Nikkor lenses, which will produce stunning images that are richer in tone and detail which was previously possible in DX format without sacrificing its shooting speed or energy efficiency. This is also equipped with the new image-processing engine which is “Expeed 2” featuring a higher performance noise reduction, improved color reproduction, high-speed image and movie processing, and efficient energy saving.

It has also a wide sensitivity ISO range from 100 to 6400 at normal setting and can be rasie to ISO 25600 also known as Hi 2. You can maintain a high ISO setting and would still get sharp images with less noise.
Its auto focus system featured a high density focus of 39 focus points and has a multi-power battery pack MB-D11 and Double SD card slots which is SDXC compatible.

A great body, but I am still waiting for the selling price in the market. Rumors have spread that this is the replacement of Nikon d90.

Where your blood was shed for me

You have overcome the grave
Glory fills the highes place

A Day in Singapore

Had a chance to visit Singapore again when my family went to KL for a vacation. Singapore is only 5 hours drive from KL, so a visit to KL will not be complete without a side trip to Singapore. I was actually planning to have a night long exposure shoot of the skyline, but I wasn’t able to bring along my tripod. So instead of a long exposure, here’s a snap shot during the day. The sun was actually hiding and it was an advantage shooting at around 1pm.

Pre-Nup: Gerald & Lucky

Architect-Photographer Edu Cortez of Extreme Details Photography, who happens to be a colleague and a former college mate, had his client’s pre-nuptial session here in KL early this month. I was able to catched his scheduled pre-nup here in KL thru Facebook and I would like to thank edu & mherl as well as the couple Gerald and Lucky for allowing me to shoot them at The Golden Palm Tree Resorts & Spa located at Sepang Gold Coast.

Though, slightly hesitant to shoot, I manage to capture a few, of the couple’s treasured moments. This was my first attempt of shooting on-site pre-nup with only my reliable nikie, the kitlens and my 50mm1.8 on board. I was having trouble with my auto focus during the shoot, that’s why it turned out almost half of the shots I took was blurred grrrr…

The bride, Lucky was fervent and was comfy in front of camera, while I find Gerald a little timid but cognisant. The couple was accommodating, they were actually a total stranger to me, but they were gallant to me and my hubby when we were introduced.

Having had the chance shooting with edu, was indeed an enormous opportunity for me to learn more about photography. I was mesmerized by his works and the product of his fish eye lens. Edu is currently one of those numerous rising professional photographers in the Philippines who had plastered his name in the walls of wedding photography and is shooting couple for a living.

It was indeed a privilege and an immense experience shooting with edu and the couple.
Thank you guys!

Thinking about Wedding Photography

This few months, I have been chasing a lot of wedding photography blogs and website and found myself falling inlove in wedding photography. I’ve been hooked in browsing wedding pictures from this websites Metrophoto and StephTan which serves as inspiration to me. The dramatic pictures, the faces and expression and every stories that pictures tells about wedding captured my inner being which eventually strengthen my interest contemplating to do wedding photography in the future.

Early stage in this so called hobby, I’ve been in a wedding of hubby's friend twice with my nikki, not as a photographer but as a guest. Those were the times that I was still shy and hesitant to take pictures on such occassion. Looking back to the memories I’ve captured, I have decided to do a PP on few pictures that I have selected just to slake the interest and for my own satisfaction. I’ve been looking forward of capturing wedding memories in the future and I hope wedding bells are up for several friends and relative for the next coming years.

Here are few portraits I did, during Pearl &Tony’s wedding last August 2009, and Marianne & Jenesis’s wedding last September 2009.

Ms.Weng: UnderExpose

Chasing the light but still on a tight budget. So while trying to learn, I did my first DIY portrait lighting experiment last night. I used one 11 watts lampshade and a gray umbrella as a diffuser and placed it on the side of the model. Though still struggling and the lighting was not good enough, I hope I did a satisfactorily job for this project.

Thank you to my model, who is always ready to pose everytime I ask her to do so. Im actually taking advantage of her stay here in KL. Constructive critism is welcome.

Maternity Portrait

It’s my 27th week of pregnancy. It’s been a long journey and we’re starting to get impatient for the big day. Almost 3 months before he comes out, but looks like its still a long wait, we want to see you baby very soon. To quench the day, Hubby and I decided to have our first picture together showing my bump. Hubby has been very supportive through out this whole thing and he also enjoys baby’s kicks every night. Having no one to take our portrait, we have no choice but to trust our tripod and the camera's timer for this project. After a several clicks and catching the right place for the right framing, finally we have this end product. I have converted it to high key black and white to add the drama on the picture.

Colour Trend

1/1"exposure time, f8 @ 34mm focal length
.625"exposure time, f10 @ 28mm focal length

One weekend night, got myself busy experimenting with colours. A DIY softbox, a lampshade and a flower base as my subject. It was my first try shooting with a diy softbox and lighting. I just did a slight adjustment on curves to make the colors really pop up.

Joy Ride to Malacca

An unplanned trip to Kuala Lumpur’s 3rd smallest and historical state Malacca. 148 km south of Kuala Lumpur, and 245 km north of Singapore where traces of Dutch and Portuguese heritage were remarkable which was inscribe in the world heritage list.
I wish I had more pictures to showcase but with only 3 hours stay at Malacca we did nothing but sight seeing while setting inside the car. I must be very keen in shooting next time I went to an unplanned trip like these, especially if your not there for a photo opt nor as a tourist. Thank you very much Pst.J and Kuya Rex's family for inviting us. There are more to see and I’ll be back Malacca.

Water Colour Drops

Inspired by an article with almost the same concept, I tried to experiment on this piece I have been longing to do for quite sometimes. I filled up the champagne glass with water, and mixed the water colour which was slowly dropped to the glass. With my usual set up at home, utilizing the natural lighting available, I tried to capture every drop send by mr.z. Though, I didn’t get exactly the picture I wanted for this set, I think this first try wasn’t bad at all. Pictures were taken at 1/320”exposure time, f5 at 30mm focal length plus a slight adjustment on levels and saturation to make the colour really pop up.

The Yellow Floret

This morning while having my Saturday swimming routine, I spotted this yellow flower over the landscapes beside the pool. I don’t know its name some of you might know it; I just thought this might be a good subject. As I was contemplating of shooting the flower, I still have to go up to o

Bisekleta ni Kuya

Staring at you while you bring those kids fun while roaming around the village with your wheels makes me envious. And so I found myself screaming hold me! hold me tight! as I start to turn your wheels. My friends laugh at me while I scream on top of my lungs while am about to hit a neighbor’s wall. As I rise from my fall,

Bukit Bintang in Lomo

The picture was taken by hubby during the bukit bintang photo walk of KLPPB. Lomography was just hunting me somewhere. I just had to sit down and do a quick PP on this pic to achieve that lomo look. Its been months since i was first introduce to lomography, and today it tickled my mind again just after browsing wedding pictures of a colleague done by metrophoto.

Fourth Month

Today, my hubby took the effort on having my portrait on my 4th month of pregnancy. So far im not yet gaining much weight since i get preggy. We have decided to changed my OB since my first OB dont do delivery. I am doing well so as baby zoe, his gender is still unknown and were hoping that it would be a boy. Everything seems normal on my 4th month except for some lower back pain that maybe due to long hours of siting. Meanwhile, i went for a dental check up last friday since im suspecting having gingivitis and was felt relief after being told by the dentist that i was not infected. Instead i just went for a normal cleaning. Five more months for him and he'll be saying hi to the world.

Here's a glimpse of me, hubby as the photographer, our bedroom as the studio, with our reliable nikki with 50mm 1.8 on stack plus my humble skills in post processing.

A Song in Your Heart

A song is a composition that contains vocal parts that are performed and commonly accompanied by musical instrument. It is something that can change our mood and something that you would love to hear.

I find it interesting looking at children invigorating when u play some good music. I just love staring at there sway and hearing there claps along with the music. It comes natural to some kids that sometimes you don’t even have to teach them. It comes naturally to them because God has a put a song in their hearts.

A Song in your heart is not just about music. It’s an attitude that we should possess. Having the song and thoughts of being grateful, being excited about our future and expecting good things from God. It’s a song of freedom. Author Joel Osteen once said, “God has put a well of joy inside of each one of us. If we can learn to tap on this joy we can be happy no matter what our circumstances are.”

So, what’s the song inside your heart?
Keep singing a song of joy in your heart despite any circumstances.

…. Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth;
Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises. Psalm 98:4

A Mere View

This is a refreshing place somewhere along the lake in Putrajaya. We drop by to have our picture taken, and discovered that it was a perfect place for a landscape photo opt. unfortunately we don’t have enough time to do opt and planning a second trip was on the way. Away from the busy life, calm, refresh by the fresh air, I wish we could have this in the city.

A Macro Set

On a Sunday afternoon, I went down the condo and took a walk at the pool & garden area. I found the landscape around the block interesting and did plan for this walk for quite a long time and finally I was there. With my cam on board, I took a bit of macro of some species present. Macro was my starting point in photography but I don’t actually own a macro lens and the absence of it did not stop me from shooting macro. Shooting on an aperture priority, on a cloudy afternoon, this may not be a real macro shot technically but here are some of the shots.
