My Photography Checklist 2014

I become more interested in photography when I notice that my photography skills are improving. I want to achieved goals and set direction to make track records and learn something along the way.

You know that experience will teach you more and help you master the skills you need in photography. Now I wanted to start my adventure to gain more experience in photography. I’ll be more friendly and happy to meet new friends and make our time valued to learn.

I love to learn photography because I love to bring back the moments and feelings when you look back on the photo. Photograph is one of the best tools to remember and it is not always the image that is preserved it includes the feelings.

Outdoor Photography

The three venues that I can recommend within Quezon City to perform outdoor photography. My first outdoors photo shoot was held at Wild Life where you can get scene form the lake, bridge, trees, walls, house, grass, woods, and stairs. The Quezon City Memorial Circle is good as it is a well know landmark. The Eco Park at Lamesa Dam is very to Wild Life.

Here are my checklists for outdoor photo shoot

  • The girl with a guitar – I always love music.
  • The girl with umbrella – playing under the sun or getting wet under the rain
  • The girl in the mirror – strong emotional feelings
  • Happy with the balloons – I always think happy with the balloons
  • Playing in the woods – do you want to play hide and seek in the woods

Indoor Photography

Privately public – we shoot you on private but you wanted to show in public.
I don’t have this option in mind just want to make sure that it is included in my checklist.

Food Photography

Food can always be delicious in the photo and my smart phone can handle this most of the time.

Stolen Shots

The sniper style! Making a good shoots behind the scene and perfect timing.

Landscape Photography

I hope to list down a good landmark and it is best for me traveling with friends. Enjoying your photography while spending good time with your friends.

Tools and Gears for Photographer

I also want to invest in my tools and I hope to use them very well.
I need lighting effects life flash, steady lights, umbrella, and reflector. And of course I want new lens, they are expensive but let them be included in my checklist.
I need file storage and I a have SD card for now but I want a big file storage that I can access online or in the cloud.

Friends and Mentors

I need friends, the one that I can share my experience and the one that I can learn too. I always starts this way. Making friends can always bring fun that makes me feel the difference.


My first photo shoots with Image Boost Photoshoot Production

Kitty arranged this event and luckily I was able to attend and join on their photo shoots last April 8, 2014. Meeting them for the first time makes me feel a little shy as first timer. I hope to remember all the names of the model and photographer; it is nice and fun to meet them all.

 The Photographer

I have not learn how to take a good shoots from my Canon 1100D and I took this opportunity to gain experience of taking a good shoots. It’s nice to meet other photographer who’s giving me tips and advice. Thank you sir Tony, Naz, Mario, and Alex.

The Venue

The Wild life in Quezon City is a good venue for outdoor photo shoots. You can set different background from lake, trees, grass, bridge, and sunsets.

The Photo Shoots Model

I don’t know but it feels like you have to build trust first compare to food photography done on my phone. I am bit confuse on what to do on my shoots it is the first time I am doing this for models that I also meet for the fist time.

The Photo

I see that most photo shoots I did was blurry. Probably 10 out of 100 photos are good. I want to share this because it’s the beginning of my career in photography. Please check some of my photo process image.

The Appreciation

The best result is when you feel like being acknowledged and this is priceless moment. Thank you so much for making me feel good.




Mentor vs Adviser

You can learn from both of them but careful from where you get advice. There are differences between mentors and adviser base on their teachings. The adviser is the one can tell you how to do it while the mentor shares to you how he did it. Always keep in mind that both of them can advise good thing but one of them are very successful of doing it.

This can help your learning process boost and gain more experience effectively as you listen to them both. You can identify problems ahead if you foresee the vision from what you learn from them. You get the perception of their experience that you might come along with. All you have to do is to learn.

Its better to be with someone who had been there! Its like having a guide that is regularly climb on the top of the mountain rather than people who just watching.
