Santiago Bay, Camotes Island

Went to Camotes Island, Cebu last weekend for some R&R and it didn’t disappoint. The island was pristine, the people were hospitable and the food was awesome. Along with the killer weekend, a ton of photos accompanied me back here to Manila, waiting to be processed.

In the meantime, while I juggle post-processing the photos with work and play, a black and white teaser of an upcoming set. Here’s my take on Santiago Bay, Camotes Island.

Impressions: Nik Color Efex

I’m insanely jealous of those who get to use VSCO’s film emulator presets for Adobe Lightroom and all the classic film goodies it can do to your photos. But alas, I had to look for an alternative for my workflow. Fortunately, I came across Nik Software’s Color Efex for my needs.

As you can see, the left photo is the raw copy which I accidentally under-exposed. In the middle is the black and white version I did in Lightroom while the right one is processed using the Fuji 400H film effect in Color Efex.

After a day or so of playing around with the software, I’m impressed with how it renders skin tones to emulate 35mm films such as Fuji’s 400h. Since that’s the only film I’ve tested with my Yashica, it’s the only filter I can confidently judge.

Of course, that could change once I get my hands on VCSO’s offering anytime soon.

Alessandra Chloe’s Christening

I first saw Alessandra Chloe last December and what a beauty she was to her parents and their respective families. Fast forward to more than a month later and I find myself covering her moment of becoming a daughter to our creator.
