Disc Photos again: SP Practice, October 29

Emman doing the Jordan

It's been a while since I've taken photos of Ultimate. I went to the UP Sunken Garden last Sunday to catch the practice games of SP, but there were only a few people there. I took a few snapshots, but the light wasn't too good - overcast and hazy. I still think it was good photography practice, although it would have been better to shoot some pick-games instead of just the drills.

Just a few more photos [HERE]

Katips Bar with the UP 49ers

What do you do when you combine a photo junkie with a camera, a multi-strobe capable flash and three bottles of Red Horse extra strong beer?

- Really cheesy party pictures, that's what. :)

GK international expo.

From the Gawad Kalinga Website:

"Gawad Kalinga (GK) , translated in English means “to give care,” and it is an alternative solution to the blatant problem of poverty not just in the Philippines but the world. Its approach is integrated, holistic and sustainable – a concrete action plan to rebuild this nation by harnessing the best of the Filipino – our faith and our patriotism.

What started barely five years ago in the Philippines as a simple but daring initiative by Couples for Christ has now become a growing multi-sectoral partnership driven by a vision of a new Philippines with NO MORE SLUMS. Together with its partners, Gawad Kalinga is now in the process of transforming poverty-stricken areas, many of them now empowered to further improve their quality of life! And the heart-work of GK volunteers is evident in the beautiful colors of the GK homes that have been built for and with the poorest of the poor Filipino families nationwide.

The transformation is astounding. Slums are disappearing. Rich and poor, Muslims and Christians, government and the private sector are building communities together. The poor are re-discovering their dreams, and are being empowered to build a better future for their families. The stories of how not only the poor but also the donors have been transformed continue to grow.

Gawad Kalinga’s achievements are a reflection of the sharing among different classes in society, and the partnership involving all sectors of society – bridging the gaps that divide us as a people. We are also building International Villages, showing that poverty can be addressed if rich and poor nations learn to share resources to create a better world for all."

The September Videoke sessions:

Team Lestat upholds this eqution: breakup = videoke. If somebody from RockEd ends a relationship, then its the perfect excuse to go and sing your heart out... cool songs not allowed. Air Supply and Barry Manilow, with a bit of Sharon Cuneta in the mix.

About the photos: Taken with a Canon 350D with a home-made lens. Lens has a field of view of about 50mm and an aperture of about 2.8, or 5.6 with an optional sotp down aperture made out of duct tape. The flash is a Canon 540EX. Flash was used in many ways. Direct, bounced, multi-strobed, and snooted with some stiff carboard.
