I've been posting photographs from my recent trip to the Philippines, (and will be posting more in the days to come). I'm back in Laos now and I hope to continue taking photographs here :)

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
I'm an amateur photographer hoping to go pro, but I don't know just how to go about doing that :).

I love nature - I'm fascinated by life and its intricate and complex workings - and I love its Creator, whose imagination is beyond, well, imagination.

God has given me the opportunity to live in, and visit several countries in Southeast Asia, and I'm grateful for the experiences I've had in each country, not to mention the numerous photo-opportunities that I took on with delight.

I welcome suggestions, appreciation, critiques, and pretty much anything that'll help me grow as a photographer.

I've been overwhelmed by a lot of 'stuff' for the past few weeks - school, mostly - and sadly, haven't had the time to go out taking photographs as I'd like, or to keep up with the activity on DA. I'm trying to work out a way so there's a proper balance between 'stuff' and photography - and that'd be with photography having the upper hand, of course. Let's see if I can!

I did have a chance to join a Flickr-based group (Do I hear cries of "Sacrilege! Stone him!!"?) on a photoshoot last Saturday. We did a themed model shoot ('Homeless') which was fun, but not quite my style, I guess. Deviating from the theme, I asked Julia, one of the girls to model for me among the trees in the light of the evening sun, and took some impromptu portraits of her.…

I'm quite happy with the way they've turned out. What do you guys think? I'd love to hear your comments and critiques!


P.S. I'm sorry for the delay in responding to all your kind comments on my work.
