What is Film Swapping in Lomography?

Film swap is double (or triple) exposures made by swapping film between two (or 3) persons. 1st person will shoot, rewind, and send (via sea/air) to next person to be exposed the 2nd (3rd) time. Oh don’t forget to mark the film with permanent pen (or fold the film before inserting) so the frames will match. Collaboration like this usually produces amazing & surprising outcome!   Tips & Tricks: More interesting results will come from swapping with people from distant countries/cities. Imagine to have 2 monuments like the Eiffel Tower & the Great Wall in a single frame. In...

Wow Bohol – the country side tour

Natural Wonders. Rich History. Awesome People On our third day, we took the country side tour, Amazing Race style. We were to hit over 10 spots in a day beginning at 8:30am. First let me say that the paved roads of Bohol is fantastic. And according to our expert guide slash driver Gary, the highway that surrounds the island is smooth all the way, making it possible to cover the perimeter of the island in 6 hours vs. 12 hours before. But that is not part of our tour, we take his word. Sandugo: Blood Compact This is the...

Wow Bohol

Natural Wonders. Rich History. Great People. It’s about time to visit the famous Central Visayas wonder of Bohol Province. After meeting so many travelers who raved about the island, we decided that this year is the “We See Bohol Year.” As early as mid-January, barely recovering from the Christmas holiday fever, I begun my hunt on-line for cheap airfares and accommodation for Holy Week, the Peak(est) Season in the Philippines. I tried to book at one of the popular budget resort in Alona Beach and they told me 10 of their cottages were already fully booked. My jaw dropped....

Awesome Anawangin + Enchanting Capones

Long time dream of visiting the splendid Anawangin Cove & Capones Island in Zambales finally realized out of a drinking spree with girlfriends. It’s everything they said and more. Clean camp site, pristine beach, & glorious sunset. Meet up was at my place, as always when we travel north. We hit the road before the sun came out and was in Pundaquit by 7am, thanks to the new scenic SCTEX highway (read rant about this beautiful highway) and an F1 racer “solemate” for driver. We brought groceries from Manila but bought the fresh items, block ice, coal from the...

Life in Lomo

The photo enthusiast that I am, I am now without a (digital) camera. I own a Canon G9 which I love but it broke while I was in Yogyakarta visiting the Unesco World Heritage Temple of Borobudur. Without a digital camera, I was driven to rekindle my affair with my long neglected lomo camera, LC-A+ Briefly, lomography or lomo as what it’s fondly called is a new (or old) form of photography (sort of) using films and toy cameras. There are bajillion kinds of lomo/toy cameras and more coming out or being modified everyday. Most popular types would be...

Diving Verde Island

It’s the peak of summer yet the sun constantly take backseat from the frequent rain. Luckily, last weekend, after a week long of rain in the city, sunshine was full blast when we arrived Puerto Galera Saturday morning. The star attraction of this dive trip is Verde Island. Verde Island has been described as the “center of the center” of the world’s marine biodiversity. Its spectacular reef formations has more than 300 species of coral and underwater rock canyons that host nearly 60 percent of the world’s known shore-fish specie. It is also known for its unpredictable current and...
