Almar & Daisy Wedding

Almar & Daisy Wedding Video

I always turn down last minute video and photo of events more so for weddings. A wedding is an important part of a couple’s life so it’s a bit tricky not to mess it up for the clients, that’s why I don’t accept a last-minute wedding shoot. My wife talked me into it and we did made through the event without any fuss, besides I love shooting weddings, telling their love story even on a brief moment is magical not just for the couple but for me and for others as well. This is not your typical church wedding or garden wedding, it’s has a more humble set-up than we usually see on videos and films. I’m still happy we’ve done it, and even in a very short notice we manage to pull it off. Hope you like this simple wedding video.

The KaeKae Show – Kid’s Star Concert 2014

I’ll be smirking when I see Moms and Dads acting like lunatics when their kids are performing on stage. I told myself that I would never be like them Stage Fathers and Mothers pushing their kids to perform. Well I guess this is how it feels like being one. It felt like I’m the one on the spot, anxious and at the same time feeling proud of my daughter performing on stage. I don’t really worry about her having mistakes, that’s where good memories are made – beautiful flaws in life makes the perfect Kodak moment. This post is a bit late but still worth sharing. Hope you enjoy this video. Credits to my wife for doing the B-roll shots. Cheers!

Kae at Her Grand Dad’s Birthday (photos + video)

I had the chance to shoot some photos and videos of my father-in-law’s 58th birthday celebration last January. Actually it was a double celebration of his birthday and their (w/ mother-in-law) wedding anniversary. It was a late celebration ’cause we only can visit them a week later the actual date. It was a good day for all of us my parents and my wife’s (Jenny) parents have a time to bond before my in-laws go back to Italy. One big happy extended family. Hope you like the photos and video, Kae sure did enjoy posing in front of the camera.

Novoflex – A Wonder Adapter with Video Test

Mama & Kae

Mama & Kae

Last time we went to the Zoo Kae is still very small and she did’t actually appreciate the animals there but now she knows almost all the names of the animals well at least all the characters of MADAGASCAR.

It was also an opportunity to put my manual focusing skills to the test. My Nikon D700 batteries where drained from my last interior photography shoot (very irresponsible of me) so I brought along my Canon 60D with my Nikon 24-70mm f2.8G lens and a Novoflex Nikkor G lens to Canon EOS mount adapter (whew that’s long).

Don’t Just Dream – Do Something About It

This film serves as a brief rider profile of BMX flatland rider Renz Viaje from Philippines. This was made prior to the FlatDev 2012 BMX competition held at Melacca Malaysia on 7-9 of July 2012. This is my 2nd take on film making. I was choosing between a Nikon D5100, D7000 and Canon 60D and 650D, I end up buying the Canon 60D. I don’t want to invest to other lenses anymore so I decided to get an adapter  for my Nikkor lenses which is another problem because they are all G type lenses. I sold all my Nikkor D lenses when I shifted to a full-frame body (Nikon D700). Since auto-focus is not that precise on DSLR video making I’d rather use an adapter to cater all my Nikkor lenses. I research and research and research again in the web until I end up seeing the “Novoflex” German made lens adapter for Nikkor G lenses to EOS mount. This adapter works in wonders but a bit pricey for a small piece of metal maybe it’s because of German precision (wink) but one thing is for sure it’s worth every penny. I might do a brief review about this adapter on my next post, for now enjoy the short video.
