Manager of L’Oreal, Yunos Koswara and Brand Ambassador for Maldita Studio, Dr. Hayden Kho, Jr. –Maldita Studio
Excellent food and drinks were catered by Mango Tree Bistro.
Maldita Studio is located at Ground floor, 75 Panay Avenue, Quezon City.
A few weeks before the party I had a few hours to the studio to shoot the interior with a wide lens.
Beauty and the Beast
This shoot was for a catalog being distributed in US market for assorted baskets.
There was minimal fuss in a hotel room with the chefs taking care of the food. Bringing in 2 duffel bags worth of assorted lighting gear was a bit too much. After some test shots with a combo of ambient room lighting and a fully open window only 2 580 EX II Speedlights were used. The shoot was done in under 8 hours with 2 cameras tethered to a Mac. The images were used for both print and website usage.
Been sick and working and thus the absence of any new post the past week. Things have gotten better and posting duties will continue…
Instructions from the church coordinator were: photographers and videographers must not stand in the Chancel (In church architecture, the chancel is the space around the altar in the sanctuary at the liturgical east end of a traditional Christian church building. It may terminate in an apse. -Wikipedia) area. Ok then I thought, Heidi and Mel will never ever have a photo of themselves kneeling in front of the priest listening to the sermon or saying their vows. Since I doubt the couple will ever go through this again- with utmost respect and good intentions, there just had to be some shots coming from that area.
I slowly inched closer to the off-limit area but surely my tall build didn’t help much as everyone in the church noticed this photographer doing what he wasn’t supposed to. But in hind sight, it was well worth it.
Quezon City, Philippines
This memorial at the intersection of Tomas Morato and Timog Avenue was erected in memory of the Filipino Boy Scouts and scout masters who died in a plane crash in the oceans of Bombay, India on their way to the 11th Boy Scout World Jamboree in Marathon, Athens.. The incident in July 28, 1963 was considered one of the most horrific involving a plane. With a total of 62 passenger of which 24 were members of the Philippine Scouts and 22 of them just teens. There were no survivors and only 5 bodies were identified by next of kin.
This particular area is named Barangay “Laging Handa” (Tagalog for “Always Prepared”), the motto of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines and many of the streets are named after the 24 scouts that perished. Today, the Laging Handa area has become an entertainment hub for folks living in Quezon City and surrounding areas.
Pictured here is the round monument with the recent addition of the obelisk with the statue of Tomas Morato, the first Mayor of Quezon City. The street on the left top corner is Timog Avenue intersecting with Tomas Morato starting from the right top corner.
Its too bad all that electrical and cable TV wires crisscross across the frame.
