#VantagePoint x Paulo

I was recently given the idea by Light, a new technology company to take part of their #VantagePoint project. It is a project were some bloggers were chosen to take part to share some of their favorite stories and photos from different locations and how they captured the moment. I immediately thought of a friend who’s passion for photography fits more with this kind of project than I do. I contacted him and asked if he could make a guest post on the blog and luckily he agreed. 

"Hello guys. So I was given a chance by a special friend to create a blog post about one of my passion and that is taking photographs. To be honest with you I don’t have any idea on creating a blog HAHAHA so I’ll just start by introducing my partners in taking those awesome shots.  All photos were taken using Canon EOS 1300D and Canon SX420. Most of the time I use my SX420 for “distant shot” landscape photos or just general view photo for it has a very powerful zoom lens while my 1300D for photos with subject’s, portraits, events, artistic and urban zooms. Here are some of my best shots at various places like London, Singapore, Cebu PH, and Bataan PH." 
"This photo was taken in the streets of London with my friends. We travelled towards the bank of the river where we took a nice photo of the iconic London Bridge. Since it was gloomy that day I set the camera setting to manual and enhance its setting to make it look cold. I love to take photos with silhouette effect and this one was my first silhouette shot in an urban place."
"This one is at the top of Greenwich Park, still in UK. There is no special effect with this photo but it takes an effort to take this shot because, as you can see, it was perfectly taken at the middle of the street and the timing was just perfect as the two cars passed parallel to each other."
"This one was taken at Marina Bay, Singapore and this was actually the first shot of my Canon 1300D. For this shot I used the fish lens effect for a wider look. To take this aerial shot I purposely climbed a bridge trusses. Luckily there were no cops around that time though the original plan was to have a long exposure shot to vanish the people walking around. But I still consider this as one of my best shot in Singapore."
"This is the bridge that I climb to take that photo. As you can see I use the long exposure so there would be no cars and people walking around. Long exposure can be achieved by adjusting your camera setting to manual and remove the auto focus then set the shutter speed to your desired speed. For this shot I set it to minus 20 seconds to achieve it."
"Of all the silhouette shots that I have taken this one is my favorite. This was taken at Corregidor. If I’m not mistaken this location was called Battery sunset. Battery means a location where canons were placed during World War 2. It’s an ideal location for taking this kind of photo. It has a great view of the sea and the sun. It is also an ideal resting place after a long day of exploring the island. This photo was taken using manual setting. I focused at the sun as my subject to achieve the blurry effect."
"This is the view that you will enjoy if you have the chance to visit the island. Luckily the sun wasn’t entirely blocked by the clouds and it made the photo more stunning. We have to wait for 25 minutes to capture this photo but because of the great ambiance, we had a great time waiting for the perfect timing." 
Thank you guys! I hope you enjoyed my very first blog post. :)

    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex husband after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Willie B. Garcia from US Florida
    I'm so excited sharing this testimony here about how I got my ex husband back after a long time break up that almost led to a divorce all thanks to Dr Ahmed for his wonderful help. Am a woman who love and cherish my husband more than any other thing you can imagine on earth. My husband was so lovely and caring after 3 years of marriage he was seriously ill and the doctor confirm and said he has a kidney infection that he needed a kidney donor, that was how I start searching for who can help, doctor has given me a periodic hour that he will live just 24 hours left, that was how I ask the doctor if I can be of help to my husband that was how he carried out the text, the confirming was successful, I was now having this taught that since 3 years now we got married I have not be able to get pregnant, can I ever get pregnant again? That was the question I ask the doctor, he never answer his response was did you want to lost your husband? I immediately reply no I can't afford to lose him. After the operation my husband came back to live and was healthy I was also ok with the instruction given to me by the doctor, after 3 months my husband came home with another lady telling me, that is our new wife that will give us kids and take care for us, that was how I was confused and started crying all day, that was how my husband ran away with his new wife cleanable. Since then I was confuse don't know what to do that was how I went back to the doctor and tell him everything, he told me that, this is not just ordinary, it must be a spiritual problem that was how he gave me this Email: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com that I should tell he all my problem that he can help, that was how I contacted he and I do as instructed. After 22 hours and I have done what he ask me to do, my husband start searching for me and went back to the doctor, that was how he came back to me, he also told me not to worry that I will get pregnant, this month making it ten Months I contacted he, and am now having a baby of nine months and 2 weeks old all thanks to Dr Ahmed for his help that is why I have put it as a must for me to spread the news about Dr Ahmed is a place to resolve marriage/relationship problems? Contact: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com... Call him or what’s-app: +2348160153829 stay bless
