A month ago we ventured into Tanay, Rizal to shoot Daranak and Batlag Falls. Together with friends from Focus Bulacan, our new photography club, I was ecstatic to be able to try landscape photography again. Little did we know, the sun wouldn't be so kind to us. By the time we got to the shooting location (around 7AM), the light wasn't ideal anymore, especially with the tree cover that surrounded the falls, producing an uneven spread of light. Anyway we still did what we could to shoot what we could.
To minimize our loss (or save the trip), we looked for other spots in Tanay where we could shoot. One of the posters in Daranak Falls showed a lighthouse structure that we thought would look great in our photos (and it did look good in the poster). We even met a tourism officer who prodded us to proceed to the parola, heaping praises that it is a tourist spot. So off we went to the the next location, only to find out that, well...
I'll stop narrating here, and let the photos' caption continue the story.
More infrared snaps around the parola location in Tanay...
Sometimes things wouldn't go our way. I wanted to shoot landscape extensively, but the settings weren't ideal. It happens. I took it as a loss, but salvaged what I can. By shooting other things. And that's how I saved my day.
To Jay, Amen, and Caloi, my Tanay buddies, let's try it again!
