The Instax Mini 8 Experience

1

It took me a while to master this thing. In other words, it took me several boxes of films before I finally got it right – from distance to flash to the use of close up lens. It is quite of a challenge since I am used to the camera on my phone, with auto focus and macro options that allow it to be more handy, and DSLR. Not to mention the number of blogs I’ve read and videos seen to get more ideas. Yes. It might be a trial and error at first. But no matter how many reviews you read, the best way to get to know it is by using and trying it out for yourself.

But don’t be surprised. That is simply the nature of instant cameras – you cannot change what comes out of it. Like in real life, you only need to accept and eventually like it. But one thing is for sure. Every failure will make the next picture look better.

I remember someone told me this before, “Enjoy using it.” So I did and will continue doing so. 🙂

I’ve never been a fan of JaDine but now, I’ve been fangirling. Haha.

Blame it on the character of James Reid. I mean, on OTWOL.

Lol. 😀

Adult Coloring: A Great Way To De-stress

Creativity is intelligence having fun. – Albert Einstein

One of the things that I do to keep stress at bay – aside from reading, writing, blogging, and the like – is coloring. Yes. Who says coloring is only for children? Well, if you’re fond of doing so being a kid, then you will surely benefit more from it as a grownup. As they’ve said, relieving stress doesn’t always require a trip to a therapist. Just a little bit of doodling will even work wonders.

Tip: To manage stress, I only make sure that I do other things aside from work or being in front of the computer, and away from my phone checking the social media. Hihi. Hope that helps. 😉

Hello, everyone. I’d like you to meet my dog PeeWee ~ a 10-month-old female Japanese Spitz. She’s a very good watch dog and a very good protector.

Say hi. 🙂

Wanderlust: A Strong Desire To Travel

PhotoGrid_1438274454982_1_wmWe travel because we need to. Because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same. But something in our minds has changed, and that changes everything.

Sharing something personal. Hihi. I am just kidding though. All photos were only taken here in the Philippines. 😉
