Digital Photography: 2017

Solar Eclipse: August 21, 2017

Like many people, I too missed the peak phase of the even due to weather. Fortunately for me, the storm clouds parted just in time for me to photograph the last phase of the eclipse through the remaining clouds.

"UNTITLED"

Going for a more retro look, my friend Krystel poses for the camera in this cute green retro swimsuit. I think she missed her calling as a model, lol.

FYI, I was standing around waist high in about 2 feet of river muck in order to get this shot. The struggles of professional photography!
