Finally caught a Tom’s Story gig at Route 196.
First and last time I watched them was way back in 4th year high school! Friday night, beers, balut, and good local music, yeaaaah. Really glad I got to catch Tide/Edit too!
Had my first freelance job as a behind the scenes photographer for Matrix’ 8-inch cut for change challenge. The hair chopped off from the models will be donated as wigs for the children of Kythe. We got to visit some Kythe kids in the hospital right after getting the models’ hairs cut.
The minute we stepped inside the wards, I felt the tears starting to well up in my eyes. It was overwhelming. I was telling myself to keep it together and stay professional, but I just really wanted to ugly cry. I knew I had a job to do, but my heart was breaking. :( Was it even ethical to take pictures of these children? It felt like we were capitalizing off of them.
Eventually I felt better because we were making them smile. It truly warms the heart. I tried talking and interacting with some children and their families while I did coverage work. I am grateful for those small but impactful moments.
Finally! The worst is over! (a.k.a. Faastigan)
I enjoyed working on this creative project though, no matter how demanding it was. From producing the branding, to the posters, display pictures, cover photos, promotional photos, and videos. Man, that was alot of hardwork.
One of the publicity efforts we made were the pictures for the Block Liking Photo Contest. I collaborated with Kenneth for this, and it turned out great! Received lots of good feedback.
Here are some of my favorites:
It was pretty tiring using the pen tool and clone stamp @-) jk I cheated with eraser. HAHAHA
Finally had time to post process pictures that aren’t org related, lol.
A day of learning and discovery with my siblings at the Mind Museum.
This day we celebrated RB graduating from grade school. Whew. Time flies by so fast. Seeing my siblings grow up and change so much in a couple of months feels quite strange. Suddenly, they have these new little traits or quirks about them that weren’t there before. Suddenly their voices change. Suddenly they’re not the tiny kids you used to look after before. Now they think differently, walk differently, talk differently, and act differently. Puberty is weird.
Some things don’t change though.
