inspiration: The Online Photographer

1 of 3 of Mike Johnston's winter wonderland photos

Mike Johnston feels about snowfall the way I feel about sunsets:

Do you ever feel like you have to go take pictures of something?

This morning we had a late winter snowstorm that came down in big, sticky flakes and stuck to everything. Stop signs were white, not red; trees, cars, shopping carts at the grocery store, even power and telephone wires were coated with white frosting. And, as usual, I felt an anxious, nagging obligation to pick a camera and get out and photograph it.

Hey, I’m a photographer—and a winter wonderland snowfall is a photo opportunity. I’m obligated.

He then goes on to say it’s OK to put down the camera, and just enjoy the view. I agree. I know could photograph that sunset or fully experience it, but never both at the same time. Here’s to just looking.

The Online Photographer, Do You Ever Feel This Way?

wedding posts updated

These days, though, I’m more into wedding photos, but probably not the kind you’re used to. This time I’m reacting against shot lists, stage direction, flashguns, and photoshop effects.

I’ve updated my wedding posts to include a slideshow of the complete set from the wedding, like the one below. Click here to see them. Enjoy!

camera toss portraits

In the spirit of camera toss, I went around the office and took portraits of the guys.

I stumbled on this flickr set from a while back, I’m surprised I never posted it here. Better late than sorry. Here’s to the original AzCebu staff, wherever you are now. 😉

First impressions – it really looked like having a party or a small gathering in someone’s home – so cosy, so comfy and so personal, to a point that I forgot I was attending a wedding. It’s like having a barbecue session at the garden of my old home. I love weddings done this way. You may say it’s a personal taste but I always felt that wedding is such a private affair that should only be shared with people who are very close to you.

My thoughts exactly.

While you’re at it, see weddings.
