Level Up

Did I tell you guys that I changed my Nikon D60 camera to Nikon D90? Yes I did. After I found out that D90 has better features, I decided to let go my D60.

I'm glad I bought it. There is joy in taking photos that I never thought there was before. It is very rewarding, I must say. :-) I am way far from being pro, but I would like to share some of my photos anyway. Everything is unedited. I still have to learn how to edit photos at this point. :-p So guys, please leave a comment of how to improve each shot - composition, exposure, everything :-) Thank you. :-)

settings: ISO 800, 50mm, aperture f/5.6, speed 1/400

I decided to take photos this morning, but it drizzled. My heart sank. Then I remembered I've read somewhere that it is nice to take photos of leaves after a rain. So I tried that shot above.  

Orang hue
                                                    settings: ISO 800, 92mm, aperture f5.6, speed 1/400
I was practicing how to achieve a good depth of field. I was surprised how subtle the rays of the sun against the orange hue of the bougainvillea flower. 

Yellow Orchid
settings: ISO 800, 92mm, f/5.6, 1/500

Another tweaking to achieve good bokeh. I love the yellow color of this flower.

Pink Bougainvillea
settings: iso 800, 105 mm, f/5.6, 1/1600
Pink bougainvillea this time...
Soothing Green
                                                    settings: ISO 800, 52 mm, f/5.6, 1/400                                                         

I found the green leaves soothing to my eyes. 

Nothing magnifico to these photos. I am still learning guys. It would be of great help if you leave a comment on how to improve my shots. Thank you very much :-)

happy mood! :-)


  1. YES I KNOW!!! haha and thank you pinahawak mo sakin ang lovely cam mo, naappreciate ko ng bongga! nag selos nga D60 ko e! haha at dahil jan kalait lait na D60 ko. LOL!

  2. PS.

    ayus naalala ko photog lesson natin kay kuya, yan yung madalas mong itanong eh kung paano i-ble-BLUR yung back ground habang sharp yung nasa harap! haha. NICE!

  3. This is good news. A lot have been soaked in photography not because it is just mere trend, but a way of releasing stress in life. We tend to be creative as well in this hobby. Great news this one is. :)
