Philippines 2018 – Part 2

Travel

The second part is here! I was on trips with different groups. Group travel was challenging for me because of an individual’s unique personality and preference. I am a risk taker and a very active person. I just realized that they are more like “city life”. They don’t have hiking experiences so I brought a little emergency kit for them. However, this taught me and I probably got to the next level of team leadership. lol

Philippines 2018 – Part 1

Travel

My Philippine trip was such amazing I have had in 2018 but I missed a few attractions due to bad weather. I, however, really enjoyed the trip.

The reasons why I wanted to visit the Philippines again are to spend Christmas time with my family and to learn more about geography & indigenous people of the Philippines. My stay was for 5 weeks. I was a solo traveller for a few days. I hanged out with my family and went on trips with my friends. I had the places and activities on my bucket list. These were marked off successfully.

Part 1 of 2: The photos are like my favourite valuable memories.

The Film Photographs of 2016

Photographs

In 2016, I have been shooting digital over film all the way. My film camera, Nikon EM on a drawer caught my eyes. I realized I had two rolls of 100 ISO, which will be expired more than a year. I decided to let my best friend, Carlo learn how to open the film camera and put the roll in it without the instruction. He couldn’t figure out until I gave him some hints. He finally did it! haha!

Therefore, the roll began. I found it difficult to carry the film camera with me everyday because the photos with both of film and digital cameras are similar. I kept forgetting to grab the film camera before it got dark. It doesn’t have a built-in flash. I tried my best to capture the perfect pictures in good time.

Here are all of the developed photos. I opted out a few underexposed ones.

Classic Portraits

Photographs

Here are 12 portrait photos taken using my Nikon EM with 800 ISO film. I made a little mistake because to bad lighting. They look amazing, though. I particularly took photos of people and I told them to smile with their closing mouths. I notice a great deal of people excitedly smile with the selfie or portrait pictures nowadays. They take more than 100 pictures for a day. Some refused to show them with their deadpan looks. This is not like 20 or more years ago. They love the old-fashioned photos. They only have a few perfect ones unlike the present.

These people I took the photos of are unique. Don’t matter how serious or happy they look with their natural smiles. Their looks are beautiful and handsome.

How to get 35mm film out of its canister

Photographs

Well, I accidentally rewinded the first roll of 800 ISO after loading it in Nikon EM. I thought I would toss the roll or just keep it for my treasure. Nonetheless, there is something lucky I found on the Internet. I successfully got film out of its canister!

First, you have to rewind the roll until it is smooth. Then, put the blank film in the canister deeply just like half inch. Lastly, rewind it until it gets stuck. If it doesn’t work, take the blank film out and put it again. Rewind it. See the GIF.

See how I can get the film out of its canister! Whooo!
