: I am Twittering :

Twittering each day makes me connected to my co-digiscrappers who has so much updates to share. We shared lots of info about anything under the sun from digital scrapbooking, digital photography, and more. I guess the only thing that we have not discussed there is about term life insurance, who knows maybe one day we can. I started twittering end of last year but at first I didn't know what is that for hahaha but righ tnow I am hooked in it.

:Speed Painting Using Photoshop:

Oh how'd I wish I know how to paint like my 2 older bros. using their canvasses and oil paints. I have shown some of their paining here in my previous posts and I wish i gto their talents too. Imagine the painter made this using Adobe Photoshop 7 and it took the creator a whooping 8 hours to finish this masterpiece, amazing isn't it? I love how the artist made the eyes and the earrings, the artists is truly gifted..

In this video Fergie was being drawn and you can also see other artists like Rhianna on speed painting too. Watch the video and tell me what you think.

LP: Ayaw Ko! (I Don't Like!!!!)

Hahaha. Take a look at my niece Reign, she’s having a tantrum when her mom and I asked her to wear that animal costume that my sis JoyD gave to her the last time she sent a balikbayan box. It was actually a “bunny costume” and I thought it was pretty cute on her.

At first she liked to try it but when we teased her she’s a bunny with that big ears and small tail, she begun to cry and wanted to remove the costume right away hahahaha. My cam is ready to take a pic of her but she end up crying.
Join as at Litratong Pinoy.

NOTE: Sorry the pic was blurry bec. I was laughing when I took the photos.(Iyan ang pamnagkin ko na umiiyak habang kinukunan ko ng litrato. Nung una eh gusto nya yung costume pero nung niloko namin sya ayun at umiyak na ng tuluyan.)

: Discover The Real Joy of Photography :

As a newbie like me, i still have many things to learn about different settings of my DSLR so I am still reading my manual from time to time. I also found this website very very helpful for me to understand some of the terms and setting to help me get started.

It will guide you through your DSLR (canon only of course), parts, settings and many more.. There are 4 tutorial sessions that can help you get started. Photography is so fun and it is much more enjoyable if you know your camera.

: I Love Canon! :

I took these pictures at CANON store at Megamall Branch about 2 months ago while I'm trying to canvas for the canon 50 1.8 mm lens and unfortunately it was not available. I asked permission to the staff that I will take some photos and they are more than glad to permit me. Canon as one of the leader in digital cams have been coming up with brand new models of DSLR, their new one is the Canon Rebel XS 1000d , you can see it on my previous post and they also have point and shoot cams if you don't want SLR cams.

They have the IXUS models that many have been buying as Canon is equals to quality and durability. I am a proud owner of Canon rebel 400d with 50mm1.8 lens and i am wishing that I can buy soon the 28-135 mm IS zoom lens (keepin' my fingers crossed).

What about you what Canon digicams do you own??

New Canon D1000

Wow Canon released yet another new model CANON REBEL XS1000D and i am just drooling over it eventhough I already have a Canon REBEL XTi400D. I think it performs the same at the 400d the only changes probably are the location of button and the live view preview.
Features include:
* 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
* 7-point wide-area AF system
* Up to 3 frames per second
* DIGIC III image processor
* 2.5” LCD with Live View shooting
* EOS Integrated Cleaning system

: LP: I want to eat these!

It's Litratong Pinoy week once again and I thought I'll have no entry for this week but while I was browsing my pic files, i saw these food that I wish to eat once again and boom i thought this is a perfect entry.

Just looking at the pictures right now makes me salivate, the 1st photo are the appetizer kinda sweet prawns i once ate when we ate in a resto in oz. That is so yummy i tell ya, and makes you want to eat more.

This one is a grilled fish, actually i can't remember what type of fish was that but it's heavenly tasty and filling with all those greens on the side. We ate that in a resto in front of Hamilton Island. I would love to eat them once more since I never get to eat them back here. I still have lots of wish like new telephoto lens but these food topped my list right now. Have a great day!

:LP: Ako, Meeh , Moahhh

I guess some of you have seen this pic before at my other blog but I am pressed for time and I have no recent picture so i decided that I will just post this. Anyway, it was at Ikama in Aus. where we went to see the Light house and the famous Blow Hole. We didn't finish our lunch (fish and chips) when we ate at the park so we fed the birds. One by one they showed up when they saw us throwing food.

Of course I was so excited bec. it is my 1st time that birds come right at me bec. here in Pinas birds are afraid of people hahaha (joke only!!!!) Join as at Litratong Pinoy.

(Siguro may nakakita na nitong litrato na to sa isang blog ko, kasi wala na kong oras at wala akong ibang piktyur kaya ito na lang nilagay ko. Ito ay ako sa Ikama kasama ko pamangkin ko, nagpakain kami ng mga ibon)
