Last May 27, 2012, Digital Photography Philippines (DPP) celebrated their 6th year anniversary at the Bonifacio High Street grounds. They brought in some of the top names in the photography industry as well as renowned marques for every level of photo hobbyist.
Last January, I got to visit some friends in San Francisco and got to see the sights. My designated tour guide through my stay, D-chan, to my giddy excitement, pulls out a 35mm TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) film Camera. HOOO-LY CRAP~! I thought it was an actual Rollei or a Yashica. Turns out it was a builders kit that came with issue #25 of “Otona no kagaku magazine” (Science of Adult), published by Gakken. So it’s not as fancy as Lomo’s Lubitel 166 or those really fancy TLR’s yet it STILL IS a basic but fully functional 35mm film camera. When she told me it was a kit that came with a camera, I asked her to take me to where she got it. Mozied over to Kinokuniya in Japan town and picked one up. Of course I didn’t get to put it together while I was there. Continue reading
A boudoir (French: [bu.dwaʁ], English: /ˈbuːd.wɑːr/) is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning “to be sulky” or boudeur, meaning “sulky”.
The term “boudoir” may also be ascribed to a genre of photography. Boudoir photography is not generally a new concept and numerous examples including ones of Kathleen Meyers, Clara Bow, Mae West and Jean Harlow photographed in a boudoir style.
Typically shot in a photographer’s studio or luxury hotel suites, it has become fashionable to create a set of sensual or sexually suggestive images of women (and occasionally men and couples) in “boudoir style”. The most common manifestation of contemporary boudoir photography is to take variations of candid and posed photographs of the subject partly clothed or in lingerie. Nudity is more often implied than explicit. Commercially the genre is often (though not exclusively) derived from a market for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. Other motivations or inspiration for boudoir photography shoots include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, weight loss regimes, maternity, other form of body change or alteration (such as breast augmentation or reduction) and for servicemen and women overseas.
This is a collage of some of my favourite shots from a recent boudoir session with some local photo hobbyists. Our model “Lang Sapphire Sky”, as she preferred to be called was quite the natural when it comes to posing, albeit being relatively new to the local modelling scene.
Well now, this is a bit surreal. 11 days away from the end of the world and I decide to put up my blog in my own domain… Sweet jumping Jehoshaphat ~
Anywho, to my new readers and old…
By the power vested in me by almighty caffeine Gods!! …and the Galactic Empire.
I CLAIM THIS SPACE ON TEH INTERWEBS AND DECLARE IT A CAFFEINE INDUCED REFUGE OF TRAVESTY AND HOOLIGANISM.
And a place to share purdy purdy pictures of food, dollies, and figures… and the occasional bits and bobs of fiddly gadgetry.
YOU THERE!! PREPARE TO BE DEFENESTRATED!!
Well this is a rather interesting arcade game to play. Ever wondered what it was to be like a Danceroid, them cute dancing Japanese girls on NicoNico Douga jiving to J-pop? You find the current arcade dance games that have you stepping on pads, waving at sensors and swiping your fingers on a touch screen to tame for you? Then look no further. MaiMai appears to be working on the principles as the Kinect using a camera and sensors that read your movement and match it on poinrs set by the game. The games BGM selection still seems rather limited but other wise has some of the more popular danceroid covers including Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Pon Pon song, Tsubasa Hanekawa’s Fuwa Fuwa theme and, of all things, Caramell Dansen. I might actually give this thing a whirl. Maybe some other time.

When I first heard of Drum Tao, it was during the height of my playing the game Osu! Tatakae! Ouen Dan! A Taiko Drum Rhythm game for the Nintendo DS. Ever since, then I have watched several videos of their performances on Youtube. Continue reading
