Photo Project: Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Just woke up from deep slumber. We all came home back from the 11th Hot Air Balloon Fiesta at Clark in Pampanga in the afternoon after a long drive and no sleep from the other night.

Didn’t get any good pictures, partly because I was too busy cleaning off that dirt off of the lens (or was it the sensor? *waahhh*)

Abe, that wasn’t sensor dust, believe me. If you can see it through the viewfinder, then it’s just on the viewfinder. You don’t get to see the sensor anyway unless you have the shutter open with no lens mounted. ;)

Next time may press pass na dapat tayo ha! :)

I’ve learned to let go and ignore the sensor dusts while shooting. The stress is just not worth it.

Haha pero last Saturday, I noticed there was a strand of hair inside the sensor chamber after shooting aerial photos. Was I pissed!

I wish i also had friends inside. Ako lang sa loob nagshshoot. I hope they give away more press passes, especially to photographer bloggers.

nice blog by the way. with that i mean the content. it’s rich and very informative. i loike the last picture, filters are so much fun! however, the rendered light coming from the sun can be blinding haha! as you’ve said, your experimenting. im not a photographer, don’t get me wrong! that was not an insult or criticism. :D

Too bad for you not to be able to take more pictures. Here’s hoping your lens is working fine now. I was also there yesterday. Enjoy naman pero nakakapagod lang.

Hahaha. Pansin ko din na madumi na sensor ko, syet. Nothing that the spot healing tool sa cs2 cannot quickly take out :p Ako din nag-experiment sa filter! Godsend ang polarizing filter for bluer backgrounds :)
