Snapshots in the City

By on November 2, 2011

Everytime I go out, I always bring my camera with me. As much as possible, I want to document beautiful places I’ve been to and keep memories with me forever.Photographing assorted landscapes in and out of the city is my current task these days.I’ve been doing these all the time especially during my free time. It’s just a hobby never to miss the opportunity to capture every details of magnificent places. I’m not a photographer but you may want to call me an ‘’amateur’’ instead. That’s fine. I’m trying my best and still learning. Nowadays, Sophisticated cameras can make photography easier than ever before. It’s  even easier now  to shoot unfamiliar places.The only problem I have encountered is the intense sunlight especially under a bright sunny sky. Anyway,I just want to achieve not a perfect one but, a better one. Let me show you some of the photographs taken around Metro Manila lately.  I have made a little clean-up and it looks more better.

The fish-eye effect.

There’s no harm trying to beautify your own pictures as long as it’s a real take. Even some of the pictures you’ll  see on newspapers, magazines are already edited and well-cleaned. It’s already a common practice wayback long time ago.There were other landscape scenes taken around. You can check next post.
