Shutter Addict lang ang peg

Posted by raredog in Bidyoko, Geri Barcel... | 11.16.2014 - 12:48 pm

What a twist of fate!

I instantly became a shutter-addict! As if my right hand was welded to the camera haha!

After more than a year of shying away from cameras (except my phone cam), akalain mong nagsawa naman ako ng todo kakapitik for 6 straight days haha!

This happened when I was assigned to be one of the documentation team to cover a sports fest for five days (5 muna, later na yung ika-6th).  Almost equivalent to 15 – 20 photo walks ang experience haha! Good thing nakisama yung weather sa event at hindi umulan, yun nga lang super init naman , kaya ayun instant tan ako hehe!

I covered most of of the games, but I had more fun shooting at sepak-takraw, track and field, and softball. My favorite of all was the special games at the sports fest. Sila yung mga athletes na nasa SPED Category (athletes with disabilities and special needs). You can feel everyone was in high spirit that moment. Their effort and eagerness to play and WIN is awesome! And it’s a challenge to capture their special moments with my shots.

 

 

 

Parang bitin nga ako sa photos lang that I brought out my HTC mobile phone to capture their moments on video as well. Kase naman yung Canon 1000D does not have video options. Kaya ayun mejo mahirap kase both of my hands are occupied, pero I actually get some great footages which I share below.

 

So let’s fast-forward, on the 5th day, after the event, while resting my feet and fingers at my crib, I received a message from a fellow officer of our photography club inviting me to join them the next day at the prestigious Canon Photo Marathon, todo na to! shoot na naman haha!

I said to myself why not, since it was four years ago when I last joined this event, and besides I have no important things to do the next day except doing my laundry haha! So I wake up early went to the event and registered at around 7am

So ayun, this was my 6th day of shooting! Tried my best to win with the rest of 3,000 plus photographers that day at Bonifacio High Street but it was really suntok sa buwan haha, you can easily be intimidated kung first timer ka sa dami kasali na me dalang magagandang camera! But at least I’m proud to say that two of our members at PnSers Camera Club nailed the Grand Prize for the year 2011 and 2012, bongga diba hehe!

with Team PnSers while eating and relaxing, 2pm na yata itong lunch namin hehe

 

It was a long and HOTTT day! Good thing me free photo seminars din, parang yun na pinaka rest ko. Plus there are free model shoots too, dun na lang ako tumambay hehe.  :lol:

I got off at the event at around 9pm na din, but refuse to go home without having a beer to relaxed and hit my crib at around  midnight, approximately more than 17 hours of wearing shoes! Wattahweek! :D

Two Drops a Day

Posted by raredog in Bidyoko, Geri Barcel... | 11.05.2014 - 9:51 pm

It’s not a dosage for a baby medicine lol!

I was literally talking about my gnarliest and awesomest moment on trike drifting!

Together with the Pinoy Drift Trike’s, we were able to drift on two drop zone in one day! First in Olongapo and the second was in Mariveles, Bataan.

T’was actually a not-so-planned despedida ride for Onin (PDT Crew), sadly some of our posse wasn’t able to come with us, yet we still push-through with the ride that even the continuous drizzle won’t stop us from travelling that night to Gapo!

Its near midnight when we reached SBMA, the place for the meetup. We were then treated for a short welcome party at the heart of the city by our host and fellow triker Rommel of PhatBuddha Trikes.

The asphalt to where we at was so smooth that we can’t resist trying it out to the amazement of the locals haha!

OMG! We almost forgot that we supposed to sleep early for our big drop the next day, and yet It’s almost 5am when we finally bid goodnight haha! We woke up after a couple of hours of sleep haha! Not enough rest but we were blessed for a sunny weather in the morning, and that’s enough motivation for us.

Apparently, the Olongapo drift was unplanned, only the Bataan. But Rommel surprised us by saying he already discussed the drop with the local authorities in the area, and they would gladly assist and support us during our gravity activity in their area.

We were stoked by the so called Outlaw Hill! Its roughly a kilometer of 4-lane, zigzagging, smooth asphalt road! Just perfect for all G-Sport fanatics! Its so darn smooth that doing drift tricks was a breeze! We could spend the whole day here, but because we still wanna drop at Bataan, we settled for a 4-drop on the nasty Outlaw Hill of Olongapo.  To be exact, the whole drift thing happened at National hi-way, Brgy. Cabalan Olongapo City, from Kalapati statue down to the bridge. Escorted and assisted by Brgy. Capt. Raffy Lim and 20 awesome tanods! According to Rommel, disiplinado naman kaming mga riders kaya sana makaulit ulit. This is just a test run hopefully we can come up with an official or why not an international event.

Thank you mga sirs!

We’re a bit late with our itinerary when we reached Mariveles, Bataan. Onin was supposed to be at their house for his despedida party before 6pm and yet we’re still fixing our gears for our drop at around 5pm haha! Together with our fellow triker Hendrix of Bataan Drift Trikes, we wasted no time and made 2 drops before we call it a day and headed supposedly home, but unfortunately, our crew Mark forgot his wallet at Rommel’s crib in Olongapo haha! Jerk!

Thank God we reached Manila around 10pm with no scratches! Until our next drift, Ciao!

Here’s a short video of our Olongapo Drift

Everyone at the set was stoked!

Bcuz a few days from now and Pinoy Drift Trikes will again be seen ON AIR, and this time its on GMA7 I-Juander,  hosted by the comic and witty “Bogart the Explorer”

The whole shoot happened in Sampaloc, Tanay Rizal where  we were treated with a delicious breakfast at Paseo Rizal (a cozy place where you find lots of antiques and ornaments) together with newfound friends,  and a cool weather to start the day, just perfect  to go trike drifting! Good thing our friend and partner Sir Arwin Gragasin together with his Sampaloc, Tanay based group RIM MC assisted us during the whole activity at their awesome place.

At Paseo Rizal Restaurant in Sampaloc, Tanay Rizal

The PDT crew enjoyed every moment of the shoot, most especially Bogart himself as he was tasked to try it for I-Juander story, he easily adapt the sport. On his second drop on Sampaloc, Tanay hills he was actually on high speed and was literally drifting haha! I swerved near his trike and we high-five! Cool!
