Now my question/favor is this.. :> What books have you read, re: photography styles, photoshop editing, etc.. when you were just starting? LINKS? :) maybe you can give me a list! :) I am a certified newbie but I am so excited to learn! Thank you in advance and i hope you get more and more $$$ and love and sunshines.

    Hello there! Thanks a lot! Regarding your question, I’m sorry but I don’t really read books for photography, tho I love scanning and browsing different visual inspirations ‘cause seeing beautiful photos encourages me to create something. Also, I learn more thru experience and whenever I wanna try something, I search online then try the technique or ask my friends about it. Though when I had an interview with Jay Tablante, he mentioned that one of the books that really helped him understand the principles of photography was “Light Science and Magic”. As for online inspirations, I would usually visit theones2watch.com or search my fave fashion photographers like Mert and Marcus, Steven Meisel, Camilla Akrans, Mario Sorrenti, Zemotion, etc. Hope my answer helps! Sorry I’m not really geeky when it comes to the technical side of photography. It might also help if you watch videos of shoots or attend shoots of professional photographers, it’s pretty interesting. Good luck with your photography! Just keep shooting. God Bless :)

    “Let Them Go”
    By T. D. Jakes

    There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you, let them walk. I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean, hang up the phone.

    When people can walk away from you, let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody who left. The Bible said that they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19] People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can’t make them stay.

    Let them go.

    It doesn’t mean that they are a bad person; it just means that their part in the story is over. And you’ve got to know when peoples’ part in your story is over so that you don’t keep trying to raise the dead. You’ve got to know when it’s dead.

    You’ve got to know when it’s over. Let me tell you something. I’ve got the gift of good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift. I believe in good-bye. It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He’ll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay.

    Let them go!

    This is beautiful

But since you have someone already, can I marry your works instead? loljoke. Lame joke. Haha I love love love love your works! Keep it up. I wish I could collaborate with you soon hihi. :*

    Well I like shooting outdoors but I don’t really have a regular spot, though Ive tried shooting in UP, some resorts here in Antipolo, Wild Life, etc. I don’t own a studio (I wish), my studio shoots were mostly taken at Xander Angeles’ studio (Edge of Light). Hmm, not sure if you’re one of my close friends trying to make an awkward post and see my reaction haha! IDK if this whole message was a joke but thanks a lot! “Hope to collaborate with you as well”. *wink* haha!
