I was recently contacted 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’m not saying that I’m not interested with the project (because I do!!) but I know someone who’s passion with photography fits more with this kind of project than I do. I immediately 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. :)

Thanks Light.co and #VantagePoint project for the opportunity.

Are you guys into experimenting your hair with different looks in the salon? If it’s a yes, WOW! I already consider you brave haha if not, well, I can feel you! I’m not really one of those persons who take risks when it comes to restyling my hair. I haven’t tried any hair treatments from salons that involve some sort of chemicals to make it straight, wavy or colored. I haven’t even tried hot oil! I also haven’t tried a different style of cut like having full bangs, or side bangs, or shaggy cut just because I’m afraid that I might regret it for a long time. Yes, I don’t change my look and I don’t know when will I be brave enough to do so. 
For the mean time the only and easiest way that I thought of to change one’s hairstyle is by using hair extensions. There are a lot of hair vendors that offer different kinds of wholesale extensions and for today’s post I'll be introducing  a new online shop that I just recently discovered named TedHair

Hey guyssss! How are you all doing? Most of us, if not all, are currently addicted to listening and singing along to new songs these days. I bet everybody knows the song Despacito and got everyone movin’, and singin’ (although only few understands the lyrics hahaha) to the beat!!! I’m guilty of this! Some of you may know already that I’m also a musician and I love entertaining and sharing my music to everyone. I sing and at the same time play the piano and it’s sad for my part that I wasn’t able to fully focus and give much attention to it. But of course I still go back to my passion whenever I have some time to spare. 
Anyway, I’ve recently discovered two great artists of our generation who, just like me, are called to express themselves in the form of their music. These two people are no other than Max Foxx and Nicky Renard. I feel really happy and proud to have found and heard their latest single! To give you a little background, Max Foxx and Nicky Renard are both into rock music. They are both the composer and two talented artists behind the newest single, Grovy Lane. "Max composed the basic chords of Grovy Lane, which have remained the same with the only change that Max nowadays plays the chords on acoustic 12-string guitars. However, after the chords were composed, they were left dormant for decades until a jam session Max had with Nicky Renard in October 2016. Nicky composed some additional parts and the solo, and that was how the decade-old chord progression became the foundation of Grovy Lane. His main instruments are electric and acoustic guitars as well as various keyboards. On the other hand, Nicky dedicated herself to vigorously practicing on her own and composing songs herself. Today Nicky plays on several different electric guitars, mainly Gibsons, and her absolute favorite, the one used on the long solo in Grovy Lane, is a 1960 Gibson TV Special." I hope more people in the music industry will be given attention and credit for what they share and love to do. I know they’re going to make it big!!! 
Grovy Lane was finally released last June 30, 2017 as a single! If you’re into classic rock songs I’m sure you’ll love this! :) You can now listen to their single on Spotify or download the song on iTunes. Don’t forget to visit and like their facebook page and follow their instagram account. :)

Heyyy guys! How are you all doing? Here's a post of my favorite set of pictures from our trip to 10,000 Roses. 10,000 Roses is one of the newest cafe in Cebu that everyone is talking about! When I first saw it in the internet I already put it in my bucket list as one of the places I'll go when I visit Cebu! The place is so dreamy and kind of romantic, I guess? Haha! It's named 10,000 Roses because, from the name itself, the cafe holds 10,000 white plastic roses that when viewed from different angles could look like an endless field of white blossoms. It was quite far from the city, maybe a 40-minute ride, but of course it was worth it. It's also a plus that it's not crowded when we went there. They say it's much better if we go there during dawn or evening because the roses light up and it's times 2 more romantic. However, we weren't able to push it because we might not catch our flight back to Manila. Here are some of the touristy pictures that we captured during our quick stay. :)

There you gooo! My Cebu-Bohol travel posts and vlog are coming next!!! :)
Let's stay connected through instagram (@shairangelique) and twitter (@Shairaaaaa) for updates!
