“Memories are the treasures that we keep locked deep within the storehouse of our souls, to keep our hearts warm when we are lonely.”– Becky Aligada

Basic Photography Adventures!

After a month! Gosh! I really got lazier! lol

This semester, we had an interesting course. Basic Photography. Which I think, has become the whole class’ favorite subject. Although we only had 3 meetings since the semester started. Jamie (my classmate) and I had been planning on traveling and setting foot on every paradise in the Philippines.

Last Monday, though we were both a first timers. We went to Lobo, Batangas to see the famous “Malabrigo Lighthouse”. Jamie arrived at my place around 8am, but because we had an emergency. My Yaya Dora had to escort us.

We left my place around 12pm and arrived in Batangas City 10 minutes past 1 (P32.00/Head). Took a jeep to SM City Batangas and walked to the Lobo-Batangas Terminal. By 2:30pm we were already in the Town proper of Lobo (P50.00/head). Hired a tricycle to Malabrigo Lighthouse (P300.00 back and fort)

Actually, this was only an assignment. Make a panorama. Taking landscaping and stitching it is my weakness. It was about to rain that time, that’s why its a bit dark. I waited till the sun shine again and the perfect timing was around quarter to five.

Unstiched Panoramic Project 1

This is how it actually look like unstitched. To make it one, I used ArcSoft Panorama Maker 5 software (just search it in Google). The software will do the job for you, it enhances and balances the colors and making it look like a one picture.

This was the result:

Malabrigo Lighthouse in Panoramic View

Materials used: Nikon D90 with Nikkor VR 18mm-200mm Lens

Focal Length: 45mm, Manual Settings, 800 ISO,

Yeah, sorry.  I know you’ll notice the sky is a bit messy. This is my first time making a panorama. Thanks to Youtube who thought me how to make one. Although, experience is still the best teacher. I’d probably able to make a better one.

Next PROJECT: Montage

See you in Quiapo Church this week end! 🙂
