3 Simple Tips to Help Beginning Photographers

Life may be a long and winding road filled with humps and stopovers but the whole experience of it is too beautiful for you to not be taking pictures. Every day, people make new memories. Some are good while some are not so good. But for the special moments that turn into wonderful memories, they are the ones you want to capture the most and treasure. Cameras can do that. They can capture the best of the memories and preserving them for you to look back on in the future. So if you have just bought a camera for yourself to face the world and capture the moments worth saving, you should know that it’s not as easy as it may seem. It’s not just a simple ‘position the camera then click’ like what you may be thinking. If you are just starting with photography then there are some things you would need to remember.

 

  1. Do not worry too much about the quality of your digital camera. Sure there are cameras that may be more advanced than others but what you should know is that any camera is able to produce stunning pictures. In the end, it all comes down to what you choose to include in the picture and how it is framed.
  2. It’s all about the light. When you capture a picture, make sure to wait for the right light. That would mean waiting for the right quality, direction and quantity. If you want more detail and less contrast, you should shoot when the light is softer and diffused.
  3. When recording photos, there are only two file formats to choose from: JPEG or RAW. Between the two, it is recommended that you always choose the RAW format. When an image is recorded in JPEG, it becomes too compressed. Meaning, there is no chance to edit on it unless you go for Photoshop or other editing software. Also, the more you edit JPEG images, the lesser quality it becomes. When you choose RAW, you will be allowed to go back on the image and make some changes if ever the need arises.

Exploring a Rich and Well Preserved Culture On Top Of the Mountains

Batad Rice Terraces is 350 kilometers from Manila the capital of the Philippines Islands. There is no airport in Banaue and the only way to reach the rice terraces is through car or public transport. The best time of the year to visit Banaue is from January to June because there is less rain.

I have always been intrigued about the Cordillera Mountains in Northern Luzon and I thought I should do something about this desire before I visit other tourist spots all over the world. Besides that my savings are not yet enough to take me to Singapore or South Korea.

The problem about going to Banaue is the lack of transportation because only a few buses ply the route from Manila. It takes a lot of planning to go Banaue and we decided to go first to Baguio City the Summer Capital of the Philippines and then Sagada before we take a jeepney ride to Banaue. However, it seems that we need to hike for a few hours to reach Batad Rice Terraces.

Unlike Baguio which has all the trappings of a small city, Sagada is more laid back although there are lots of local tourists. The January weather was a bit harsh and the air was so cold even with the multiple layers of clothing, two sets of socks and thick denim pants. Internet connectivity was spotty and I felt that we were isolated from civilization.

When we reached the jeepney stop in Banaue, it meant we have to go down and start with the trek. We had a guide who helped us through the slippery and muddy path until we reached a sign that says Batad. A few more minutes of trekking and we will finally see the Batad Rice Terraces. It looked exactly like the pictures with the perfect rows of terraces planted with organic rice. The terraces have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List which meant that the wonderful view will be untouched by modern technology. Life here is very basic and I felt that I was in a different world surrounded by mountains and trees with no modern infrastructure. The people are happy and that is all that matters.
