A new perspective

Got my new LSI's Fisheye Holga Adaptor today. This can be mounted on any dslr camera and of course the Holga.
I mounted it on my Canon Rebel XT and try it out. Cool.

Cross-processing in Photoshop:-D

Bwahaha! I can’t help but laugh. I thought cross processing is such a unique film technique until I discovered cross processing in Photoshop CS3. Wicked cool. I love film. Especially slide films. Provia, Velvia, Elitechrome, Precisa you name it, I droll over them. Yes they are expensive, but still I buy the freshest. With slides, saturations of colors are pushed giving your pictures unnatural colors and high contrast therefore a very magical image. Suddenly your sky looks so dreamy and your grass so edible. It’s a very interesting eye candy for me. It’s very different from film negs or digital outputs. But now, I think it’s time to rethink. Attached are images of film negs vs photoshop cross processed and digital image vs photoshop cross processed.

Bwahaha! Laugh my heart out but I think photoshop is on its way to perfecting the concept of imaging. Hail photoshop. Hail magic.

Analog afternoons

That's the feeling of a sixteen year old me listening to the very first album I bought. 
Tinipid ko ang allowance ko just to buy the Happy Hour LP by the House Martins
75 pesos way back in '87. But I was happy. 
I'm doing something without the knowledge of my parents. 
It's not the happy feeling when you downloaded an album from limewire.  
Far too different. Before there is value to an album, now almost everything is disposable.
There's nothing special about mp3s, you get it, you loose it, you download it back again, 
you loose it again, you don't care. So I don't think that is happiness. 
And definitely not freedom. 
Now, i go back to the old ways as much as i could. 
It's cool to hear the crackling of old vinlys. 
Feeling sixteen all over again is such a wonderful thing:-D. 
Iba ang amoy ng plaka. 
I can hear colors all over.  
Yeah, this is synesthesia. 
So turn the volume up, I want to hear more colors and see more notes.  
You have to listen so you can really see. 

And this is even better than itunes' visualizer. Lakas ng tama.  
This is freedom.
