As part of the Project 52 that I joined for this year, week 3 calls for drawing your inspiration from anything related to land, be it a landscape or an image inspired by the land in some way. Living in the middle of the Central Business District of the Philippines made it difficult for me as all I can shoot here are cityscapes. Luckily I got a call from a prospective client to do an ocular inspection of their new bed & breakfast hotel in Tagaytay. So I thought after my meeting I would just find a spot to get a shot of the Taal Volcano and the surrounding Taal Lake, but as it turned out I didn’t even need to do that. Click on the Read More link to know why.That is the view that I got from one of the balconies of the place. Sad thing is that all I had was my Canon EOS M10 with its EOS-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 kit lens but as they say “the best camera is the one you have with you” hence I have to make this work. The meeting was early morning so it was still hazy and I didn’t have any CPL filter, time for some DIY to get a decent image. I have a polarized shades and I used it to get that image though it was difficult hand-holding the camera and placing one of the eyepiece in front of the lens.Took another shot using the same method from a different position on the balcony.
I was supposed to post last Monday as usual but I am having a difficult time connecting this blog to my Facebook page. The connection was broken after I changed the password of my Facebook account and activating Login Approval. I had to take necessary steps after receiving a text message from Facebook that I am requesting a password change, a telltale sign of someone trying to hack my account. Until now I had not been able to re-establish the connection.
