Transit of Venus 2012.
Just a view of the phenomena here at Philippines.
I positioned the sun gobo to the top of the pine tree of our neighbor. 
I’ve taken most of eclipses since 2009; both solar and lunar ones. Solar eclipses are always been challenging and ToV is sure very difficult to shoot. It has a longer time interval as lunar eclipse but shooting it is just like shooting solar eclipses. The challenge of over exposure to direct sunlight to the camera and your eyes makes it difficult and dangerous to health. UV is the enemy again. ToV requires higher range of telephoto/zoom lenses. I used 320mm and still not enough. A sample here have a tiny dot of Venus and it isn’t satisfying for me. All in all, I had a good time planning and shooting these rare phenomena. Until next 2117, hopefully I’m a dust in space then… :)

Reading Club 2000

This made my day. :) A lovely little gem in Makati. I love reading books and this initiative by Nanie Guanlao is truly inspiring.

Here’s the full article over at the PDI.

We live in a digital age. Seeing this unique public library is gold mine. Thumbs up Mr. Nanie Guanlao. I am not a wide book reader but I know the importance of book in our society. Kudos :)

feanne: My artwork stolen by Lendl (Dale) Romero ->>

The winning design as shown on this page (under “Partner Prize”):

It’s already being sold as a t-shirt here :(

My 2007 drawing originally posted in my deviantart gallery:

I have a feeling that texture on the moon was stolen from one of these drawings too…

I have already…

As an artist and a media practitioner, this issue of theft of property and intellectual rights is much of my concern. We people who do art especially for a living must know the very limitation of our craft through propriety reasons. We ourselves are the police in preventing plagiarism. We can’t avoid being inspired through artwork of others that is a dilemma. Surely, we know ourselves if we imitate an artwork in particular or even in a percentage scale. We are artist, we creative people and we don’t deny reality. We are not stupid to accidentally copy an artwork, we are artist because we know and understand further because we are ALWAYS AWARE. Stealing an idea, owning it and taking profit to it is not the way of an artist. You have no right to call yourself an artist then, you must be a patron!

Lucky you Feanne, you were able to caught Dale. That is the least you should be thankful of. Sadly, if we depend our laws here in the Philippines, you may have the evidences but you can never have your justice. I believe blogging it this way is the best thing you can do, you made us know what is yours.

It isn’t easy to photograph a solar eclipse. This is an example of a bad photograph. 
There are major factors to consider and problems that are unsolvable.
1. You must consider if you really want to shoot, exposing the camera directly to the sun will damage the camera and worse will hurt your eyes. If you did things wrong you may end up losing both your camera and your sight.
2. Solar eclipse compare to lunar eclipse happens fast. 7 minutes the longest. It has also has a smaller range where you can spot it. If you are in the wrong side of the Earth or even the wrong country, you no longer count. Research before shooting and prepare for the date. It will take months or even years. If you are a big shot, go book a flight to a country that will experience the phenomena.
3. Having the right lens and filters are very important. You must have at least 200m above range and ND filter to get the picture. You must also consider the “other” elements in the picture like iconic mountain or building. Shooting the sun alone won’t excite the photo. Having a tripod and shooting in time lapses/intervals will also do. Then again consider a very good landscape. A light meter will also make the job easy. It will lessen the trial and error within the few minutes of event.
4. The weather is one of the unsolvable problem. Once you have a cloudy sky, game is over. Prepare for the weather, you must. If the weather is nice wear shades for protection.
5. Research before shooting and prepare for the date. It will take months or even years. If you are a big shot, go book a flight to a country that will experience the phenomena. Don’t forget the date of eclipse and be prepared.
6. Research the geography of the place you will shoot. Know where the sun rises and sets. If you end up being blocked the a mountain range, say goodbye the game is over. 
7. Bonus. Make sure it will be published, broadcast or posted. Don’t waste your effort. 
8. Do it for passion :)
