i kinda missed mountain hiking. <3

taken at Mount Batulao last summer. =)))))

First pre debut shoot experience which is supposedly at Intramuros lang but went to Harbour Square bec of the guys in Katipunero suit not allowing us kasi bawal daw ugh. But no problem anyway, mas happy pa nga ako with the outcome. Combining the cityscape background, bokehs, lens flares, OUR very own DIY lighting (which is genius), and ofcourse our ever lovely half chinese debutante, Rachel, which is a very smooth model. Everything went well naman. Also, we ate dinner at the Sky Garden para lang makapagshoot actually hahahaha i had blast with my new colleagues (too bad undecided pa prod name namin) and i just realize na there’s still more people worth being with for. (halatang may trust issues with other friends) Anyway, hoping for more rakets to come charot!!!! Kunin nyo na team namin hahaha (mura lang lol) jk =))))))

liking grunge-y monochrome photos <3

somewhere in iloilo :)

Visited Iloilo for my friend Danielle’s 18th birthday last October 3.

We had lunch on the highest point in iloilo and syempre, Smallville sa gabi.

It was a bit challenging for me tho, controlling what i drink and all kasi the morning after this, i have to go back to Aklan early and chase my flight back to Manila. hahhaha (pa hectic ko eh ano) Anyway, i had super fun tsaka that mini reunion with my high school friends really took me back like 2 years ago. You can find the realest friends really in high school. <3

it doesnt mean i wouldnt post photos anymore after my 365 challenge. =))))) there’s still more to come. ;)

Manila Cathedral view from Mapua rooftop plus these two amazing friends  that i’ve been with since first year-first term. Photos taken minutes before i took my last entry for the 365 photo challenge.

After a year full of exploring about bad and good exposures, choosing the right apertures and improving the framing and compositions, also a year full of adventures and unfathomably great opportunities, in the end, i want to thank everyone who became my inspiration (although not all of them are here in the photo) THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS HART HART LOVE YOU =)))))
This is only the start ;) i promise to share more photos with you guys.
I conquered the 365 photo challenge, and this is my road to photography! (charot) &lt;3
