Meet my New Baby, Harvey

I always remember myself as a person who can never take a good shot. Remay used to tease me because my shots are hilarious. Well, that's true. I really dont have an eye for a good angle, nice framing, and worst - almost all my shots are blurred. I consider taking photography and art courses online but first of all I have to get a decent camera.

Until last year, I was forced to buy my first point and shoot camera. It's not because I want one but because I need one- for the upcoming Bohol and Cebu trip. Never had I thought that I will use that camera a lot. The more I use it, the more I discover the tricks on how to deliver a good shot worthy to be showcased here in the web.

And now Im proud to present some of my shots using the point and shoot camera.





Yey, I can already take good shots. Yes?

For the sake of everyone who's been asking what's the camera model I've been using, here it is...


Meet Vincent, my Canon Ixus85
(bought from tipidpc seller for only P9,500)

Yeah, my camera is not expensive at all. But still, the quality and performance is superb for its price.

I love that handy camera, but of course I have to admit there are times I've been wanting more. This point and shoot cant take a soft portrait and a great night shot. Resolution is bit low too compared to digital SLRs. Hhmm, I think I need one specially this year because I'll be doing the SEA trip. Gusto ko na ng may remote na camera! *winks*

After not much comparing, I purchased my new baby last friday.


Meet Harvey, my Canon 500D

I have accomplished my first something in My To-Do-List in 2010 (see sidebar).

What made me settle for this model? Aside from reading the reviews, its price is within my budget.

Why Canon over Nikon? Because after trying both DSLR's, I knew I want to own a Canon. I feel Canon. Ü


Howkey, enough of the blogging. I have a lot to learn in using this DSLR. Oras na for a photowalk! ♥

Nakanaman! Pero magkalaban tayo kasi Nikon ako. I feel Nikon. LOL

Good luck sa mga photowalks. Sali ka sa mga photography clubs para may mga kasama ka at hindi ka magsawa sa photography.

Saka gawa ka na din ng Flickr account kung wala ka pa. :)

mylovelylife88 said...

Hello Chyng! Great blog :-) I'm also planning to buy a DSLR for my trip to Thailand. Ask ko lang, malaki ba yung difference between point and shoot and SLR cameras? Saka mas gumaganda ba yung picture pag SLR yung ginagamit? Thanks a lot :-)

Chyng said...

hello lovely!

is your name lovely? bagay sayo. Ü

hhmm, as i said in my blog, im a point and shoot user before. pero di nya kaya yung night shots at soft portrait shots.

sample ng point and shoot:
http://riandrew.blogspot.com/2009/12/mtpinatubo-trekking-easy-way.html
pero pansin mo, daytime yan so you cant go wrong sa lightning.

sample ng DSLR shots (lowlights)
http://riandrew.blogspot.com/2010/10/finale-siam-ocean-world-baiyoke-skyline.html
yan di na kaya pag P&S lang.

i think after your cambodia-vietnam trip madami ka pang upcoming travels. dslr is a good investment. lalo kang gaganda sa pics mo. ;)

mylovelylife88 said...

Thank you so much sa advice! I really appreciate it :-) Oo, Lovely yung real name ko. Hehe. Ang ganda nung mga pictures mo lalo na yung night shots mo sa skyline ng Bangkok. Nagulat ako, ganun na pala kaunlad sa Bangkok. Gusto ko na rin bumili ng DSLR. Kelangan ko nang mag-ipon. Hehe. Thanks talaga sa advice and nice meeting you! :-)

Leah Amores - De la Rosa said...

Ahhh, so yan pala magic mo with your photos :) love your photos! and your blog..sana matuto rin ako gumamit ng DSLR..I've been procrastinating because I don't want to carry it around all the time..hebigat!

josethapauline said...

wow! lupet ng mga shots mo! sana pag narecive ko na ung order ko, ganyan din kalalabasan ng mga pictures na kukunan ko!! thanks!

C.M.GARRIDO said...

what camera bag do you use for harvey?

Chyng said...

^ i dont own one.
walang pambili ng matinong camera bag ^_^

the wanderer said...

Nice camera! Mind if I ask what kind of lens you use?

Chyng said...

^ kitlens only =)

the wanderer said...

Very nice work! Parang professional lens ang gamit!

Tine Ann said...

one if the reasons I'm a big fan (ask my friends about it =P) is coz of the shots. I would also love to learn taking shots as good as yours. Naalala ko yun post about Manila Ocean Park. Was so amazed sa jellies shots I tried it myself, got a couple of good shots lang hahahha. Keep it up! there are people looking forward to your posts and pictures :) Thanks for sharing them to us.
