Into The Streets (Well, Not!)

Okaaay, vacation is over! It’s time for me to go back to Manila (aka the real world) to resume working at the start of the week. It was a refreshing (but a little stressful and triggering) week in Batangas, but I find maximum convenience and comfort working in my space in Manila.

My siblings and I traversed to three cities: Caloocan (we dropped off our cousin), Pasay (went grocery shopping), and Manila (where they dropped me off).

I actually never thought of taking (street) photos inside the car using my Fujifilm camera, because, as I always mention, I have been very comfortable using my Samsung smartphone for years already.

So I gave it a try. Since I already learned the differences between AF-C, AF-S, and Manual, I was able to practice myself adjusting the shutter speed under a great deal of pressure since I’m taking photos inside a moving vehicle and with moving subjects. What a challenge!

Oh, I used the Fujifilm XA3 kit lens (XC 16-50mm zoom). Here are the results:

These may not be my best photos, but hey! It was a challenging one. Also, I am slowly appreciating how to edit RAW files, so I have a strong feeling I’m so getting better at photography in general.

Meanwhile, here’s a snippet of our grocery shopping and my super quick workout before going to sleep (because I was feeling extra that night aka I ate a lot lol).

I would love to go photowalking again, but I am patiently waiting until it’s really safe to go out. Peace out!
