The camera never lies? Or does it?


***Photo from babipur

In most cases, it seems that the taking of a photograph depends on many factors that we have little or no control over, including the subject matter, the lighting, and the timing. This is seen as a more spontaneous or journalistic form of photography and is common in the sort of opportunities that present themselves when we are on holiday or at a function or event (or just with family or friends.)

For some, this is “true” photography, where the “camera never lies” and is seen as a true representation of what occurred at the instant the shutter was released.

We have control of “the decisive moment,” where we try to capture the essence of the moment by waiting for the ideal instant when all the elements of the image are in place before we press the shutter button. Is this then a “true” record of that instant?

Many have argued that it isn’t, as we do have some influence as to timing, framing, and choice of viewpoint and focal length before we release the shutter. So, in a sense, we have manipulated the “moment” by our selection of many factors and making choices that convey “our” interpretation of the moment. Is there a real difference then between “recording” a moment or “capturing” the same moment? Either way, we have edited the moment and it is no longer a “true” record of the moment. The question begs though, does it matter? And like all open questions, the answer is it depends on the purpose of the image in the first place.

Planning the shot

Besides the “taking” of photographs, there is, of course, another side to photography that is more controlled and that allows us to “create” the image that we want.

This creative photography may take place prior to the “taking” of the photograph or after the image is taken. By planning the desired image that we want (and of course, taking into account the purpose of the image) and then arranging the elements to ensure that we get what we are aiming for, we can create a photographic image to specifications.

Most commercial and advertising images are created to suit a specific need. Take this website as an example of a commercial entity using imagery and text to play on the emotions of the viewer. This is done by presenting the elements of sea, land, and children. However, this approach also includes product, fashion, and architectural photography, etc. The photographer has full control of the scene and controls all elements including the subject matter at hand, the lighting (usually) as well as his/her interpretation of the final image.

This sort of planned image can be just as difficult to create as the more spontaneous “journalistic” images that we “record” (ask any commercial photographer.) We will touch on some aspects of the created image further along the track.

You can also create an image “after” the event, (both spontaneous or planned images) by what is called post-processing. Since the early days of photography, photographers have had the opportunity to manipulate the image before them, either in camera or in the darkroom. Today, our “darkroom” is image processing software such as Photoshop and the like. There is almost no limit as to what can be created in terms of “photographic images”.

Purists may argue that this image processing (or manipulation) is no longer “photography”, but it can be said that the digital process used today is no different as it was “back in the old days”, except that the tools have changed (and require a lesser degree of skill to achieve good results).

Early photographers had the ability to create multi-exposure images, employ darkroom cropping and exposure manipulation as well as other more subtle techniques like airbrushing (the former Soviet Union used this technique routinely to remove undesirables who just “disappeared” – also see this article) to “enhance” an image. 

The four elements

With regards to “The Journey,” I believe that there are Four Elements that need to be considered when trying to take/create an image/moment that is more than a “snapshot.”

They are:

The Photographer (Wind)
The Subject (Water)
The Composition (Fire)
The Technique (Earth)

The Photographer

Like “Wind,” you, as the photographer, ultimately provide the intangible. The purpose and reason for the photograph, the intellect, the vision, the timing and the interpretation of what is before you, i.e. The Subject.

***Photo from wallpapercave

The Subject

Like “Water,” the subject of a photograph is everywhere and can be flowing or still. It can be a spontaneous scene that is happening before you or a carefully crafted scene that has been planned to the last detail. It may involve people or places or inanimate objects. You may or may not have control of the subject and you will have to adapt as required. Sometimes, it is difficult to decide what it is you are trying to photograph, especially when the scene is full of possible subjects. Understanding what the actual subject of the photo you want and deciding how best to photograph it, will help greatly as you try to manage “The Composition.”

The Composition

The Composition of a photograph is the “Fire” of an image. It is the key element in creating images that make people look and appreciate an image. So what exactly IS composition? One definition for composition states that it is “The combining of different parts to make a whole” (also see this Wikipedia entry for a more comprehensive explanation from an artistic perspective). There are some “rules” and many aspects to the “combining of different parts” in the composition that has evolved over many years, particularly in relation to the field of painting. Ideally, the various elements and rules in a composition should create an emotional response in the viewer (just like music). Having said that, these “rules” should be seen more like guidelines that work but can (and should) be broken when it is appropriate. However, good composition with poor technical execution will still lead to a poor image.
The Technique
Like “Earth”, there are foundations that all creative work needs to be based on. There are techniques that need to be understood and mastered (or at least controlled). In photography, these include understanding all aspects of your hardware and software (you may not need to master them all, but at least know what your equipment is capable of). You need to understand how exposure works, including shutter speed and ISO settings. Be aware of the effect of different aperture settings on the focus (or more accurately, depth-of-field). Know when to use different focal lengths of lenses (or zoom) for controlling perspective. If you are planning on using artificial lights, experiment with different lighting setups and light modifiers. 
Picture perfect

If you are going to “enhance” your images using image editing software, take the time to learn how to get the best out of them. As boring as it may be, a thorough understanding of the “technical stuff” is required, in addition to the other three elements, to produce outstanding images.

FEATURING TRENCHED BAND - UNITED IN ROCK



What is your genre when it comes to music? Music can be appreciated by someone depending on the following:

Lyrics, sound, instruments being used and also the artists.

One of the best examples of music genre is Rock. 

Rock music is a broad genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in the United States in the early 1950s, and developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and later, particularly in the United Kingdom and in the United States. 

 In this post, we will be featuring this rock band named Trenched, their music offers that rock vibe feels that can hit all ages. I love how catchy their sound in this video, it is simple and focuses on how they want their listeners to catch the impact of their music, that rock-vibe sound! The sound from the electric guitar transcends you to the place makes you feel you are with them performing. 
For me, I enjoyed their music, most especially the beat and I hope you will too! Check them out on their social media and be updated.



"HollyWood Scars" Single Release on the Upcoming Album "United in Rock"







Indie rock band Trenched has enlisted some heavy hitters on this release for a rock and roll celebration of life, love, heavy guitar, bass guitar along with the art, concepts from I Feel So Outta This World to Make The World Sing can inspire all ages.

Shop for Unique Vintage Crochet Pieces



Crochet is a process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials using a crochet hook.
I remember my grandmother used to make wonderful crochet products like a sweater, table clothes, wall decor, and even socks for babies.  I always find crochet items classic having that vintage look, especially when it is being worn. A crocheted blouse can be paired with an ensemble, jeans, skirt, and shorts. It creates that peasant looks for a blouse or a dress when worn. 

Today, crochet products can be brought online, the creation of crocheting penetrated the clothing business as one of the styles for fashion. Physical stores still showcase crochet items, although one can find it a bit pricey, leaving the shoppers to think twice to buy one. Good thing that the market expands its doors to online shops such as ZAFUL, they have a wide array of crocheted dresses and blouses. I browsed their line of crochets items and I am loving what I see, some of my favorites are in the photos. 

My top two pieces are the second white top and the nude color crochet dress, I like the length of the sleeves, low-angled collar and the bottom part that is wide in the cut. 

If you love the pieces I showed in the photos you can check out their line and shop here

Stunning Summer Dresses


The kind of season can be a big factor when it comes to wearing clothes and outfit. Summer and spring clothes can vary in print and style no matter what body structure you have. 

Floral prints can portray the spring season and the very basic loud and bright colors such as orange, pink, green and yellow can bring the summer feel. Maxi dresses like the ones in the photos can really express your style, it can also be worn from day time to night time clothes just add up or accentuate it with a plain blazer, or you can even glam it up with the hairstyle or a nighttime make-up look. For more styles and designs of maxi dresses online you can check here.
I bet you will find something that is right for your event or any lined up occasion. 

ZAFUL is an online shop that caters to any body size, from petite to plus size women. They offer attire from women, men, tops, dresses, swimwear, and accessories. Free standard and COD shipping fee, from bank to mobile mode of payments are available too!

Affordable hair straightener in the market

Did you wake up one morning with a bad hair day (literally!). I remember seeing myself in the mirror one morning with my hair as messy as the lion's hair. Everything was all over the place, making my head looks so big. This has been somehow a struggle for me having that natural wavy and dry hair. 
It has been years since I stopped going to the salon to have my chemically treated for a hair rebond to straighten my wavy hair since I noticed the thinning of the hair growth especially in the top part of my head, leaving it looking bald with hair sparse. 

I sometimes iron my hair just to lessen the frizzy look and sometimes styling it with curls and waves using the hair iron, just to look presentable and neat at work. I have this 8-year-old hair straighter which gave up life last week. The plastic handle got brittle and eventually damaging the wiring inside. I thought of not buying a new one and see if I can handle my everyday hair look with unruly waves and curls, but I gave in. I finally decided to get a new one, thanks to my daughter who convinced and gave me the money to buy! :)

I followed the budget I had last week and went to Watson's to purchase their brand hair straightener for Php1,199 ($23). 


Watsons Hair Straightener
Model No.: HC-60A
Color: Black
Dual voltage
Maximum temperature of 200C
Parts: Heated plates on both sides (Ceramic coated plates)
Handles
Power ON/OFF switch
Power indicator

Lightweight compared to the one I previously owned.
The cord at the end rotates thus avoiding the rest of the cord be twisted while using it. Although the temperature cannot be adjusted using on and off button can do the trick.


I used the hair iron twice already and the initial use impressed me! It minimizes the frizzy and natural waves of my hair in just minutes, doing the sectioning of hair can provide you an easy and good result, always start at the back going to the front part of your hair. 




There were other brands of hair tools for straightening use but I relied on the price specifically and really go with the budget I have. 

I will be updating this blog post in the coming days to update the efficiency and how the tool will work in the next use. 

For now, I am quite happy and satisfied with it.

ALTA Integrative Medicine and Wellness Complex






Jojo is 40 years old and a top executive in a multinational company. He spends long hours at work in his desire to provide a good life for his wife and three children. However, there are times when Jojo feels anxious about the future. This stems from certain health issues that have been bothering him since he reached his late 30s. He has been experiencing chest pains, headache, palpitations and, sometimes, fatigue and shortness of breath. When Jojo becomes so busy and is hobbled with a lot of work-related stress, his blood pressure shoots up. His annual physical exam has also revealed that he has an elevated level of cholesterol. Jojo worries about his health and this compounds the stress he is experiencing.

There are many people like Jojo. They want to live long, healthy lives, but the circumstances surrounding them often make them feel powerless in the face of this concern. Some people resign themselves to the idea that this is a fact of life that has to be accepted. Some avoid seeking professional help, somehow scared to find out that they’re suffering from a certain disease/s. There are others who simply choose to just self-medicate.



The Perpetual Help Medical Center - Las Piñas (PHMC-LP) recognizes these realities that a lot of people are facing. This keen awareness of what people like Jojo go through has led to the birth of the Alta Integrative Medicine and Wellness Complex.

The ALTA Integrative Medicine and Wellness Complex offers a holistic range of services that aim to empower patients with choices on how they can enhance their overall well-being. The thrust of Integrative Medicine is to provide patients with conventional and complementary and alternative approaches that work together and have shown high-quality evidence-based effectiveness and safety including:
  1. Natural Products
-herbs (also known as botanicals), vitamins and minerals, probiotics, etc.

  1. Mind and Body Practices
-yoga, chiropractic, and osteopathic manipulation, meditation, massage therapy, acupuncture, relaxation techniques, tai chi, qi gong, healing touch, hypnotherapy, movement therapies, etc.

  1. Other Complementary Health Approaches
-traditional healers, Ayurveda medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, homeopathy, naturopathy, etc.

The ALTA Integrative Medicine and Wellness Complex’s team of medical experts are trained to understand that each patient’s medical needs are unique and should, therefore, be conscientiously addressed with nuanced intervention. This is evidenced by the array of modern and scientific services they offer such as the following:


  • INTRAVENOUS THERAPY, the infusion of a fluid substance directly into the vein for therapeutic treatment. INTRAVENOUS THERAPY includes Myer’s Push, Immune, Mega C, and Acne Therapy.
  • CHELATION THERAPY, the removal of toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury iron, arsenic, and aluminum that accumulate in one’s body.
  • MINERAL REPLETION THERAPY, aids in metabolism and brings lost minerals in the body.
  • GLUTATHIONE THERAPY neutralizes harmful free radicals, flushes away toxins, supports cell health and integrity and has a big role in DNA and protein synthesis.
  • OZONE THERAPY, the administration of a small and controlled amount of ozone in the body. OZONE THERAPY includes Blood Ozone Therapy, Rectal Ozone Therapy, and Ozone Limb Bagging.
  • PROLOZONE THERAPY, a form of non-surgical ligament and joint reconstruction that uses ozone in the treatment of different kinds of chronic pain. PROLOZONE THERAPY includes Anti-Inflammatory Therapy, Special Neck Therapy, Proliferative.
  • PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP), uses injections of a concentration of a patient's own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.


CONSULTATION SERVICES:
  1. FUNCTIONAL AND PERSONALIZED HORMONE RESTORATION THERAPY or also known as BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE RESTORATION THERAPY is a form of therapy that uses hormones which are identical on a molecular level with endogenous hormones in hormone replacement therapy. This service will involve consultation with the doctor, then the doctor will request for necessary laboratory exams to check for hormone levels (blood test, saliva or urine).  Upon interpretation of the laboratory results, the doctor will prescribe the patient with natural hormone supplementation and other natural supplementation.  

Common patients suffer from PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Menopause, Andropause, Adrenal Insufficiency, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Sexual Dysfunctions, Somatopause)


  1. MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN an injury or pain in the human musculoskeletal system, including the joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck, and back


  1. POSTURE EVALUATION provides much information regarding the natural state of their tissues. Through postural analysis, it is possible to determine which areas of their body are under more strain than others, and which muscle groups are causing this strain.


4. FUNCTIONAL MUSCULOSKELETAL ASSESSMENT

5. GYNECOMASTIA AND ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION, treatment for the enlargement of breast tissues and men’s erection dysfunction.

6. AGE MANAGEMENT AND LIFESTYLE MODIFICATION, also known as modern lifestyle modification therapy combines specific recommendations on diet and exercise with behavioral and cognitive strategies. The intervention may be delivered face-to-face or in groups, or in groups combined with individual sessions.

The ALTA Integrative Medicine and Wellness Complex seeks to help Jojo and others like him by improving their health and quality of life. Health is, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” It is on this idea that the ALTA Integrative Medicine and Wellness Complex was founded because of the fundamental belief that Jojo and every patient deserve the peace of mind and should be empowered to take a more active role in shaping their health.
