How to not get mugged while vlogging at night – VLOG Episode 004

I go out a lot at night shooting street and this is one of the better routes that I normally ply in the dark. It’s hard to do street photography and be completely discreet, plus film yourself and speak at the same time, so I did not shoot along the way except for a few […]

Reunited with the Sony A6000 – VLOG Episode 003

After one or almost a year and-a-half, I’m using the Sony A6000 again. Still feeling a little separation anxiety for not having my everyday camera with me, I went and met up with my brother to get my Sony A6000 which has been with him since last year. It was weird finding the camera a […]

Eastwood POV Street Photography – VLOG Episode 002

I can’t seem to say ‘Eastwood’ without letting out a tiny smirk. Got out of the office early and somehow ended up in C5 Road in Libis, QC and shot some photos while waiting for some friends who were busy shopping. I’m using music now from our friends in the local blues scene. The song […]

Chinese New Year, Binondo, Manila – VLOG Episode 001

I finally mustered enough courage to face the camera and produce my first vlog. Please like and subscribe or let me know what you think through the comments. BTW, I’ve been meaning to make a 10-minute video but as I edited I started cutting out entire parts of my footage as I found it boring. […]

New Year 2017, back to old domain archondigital.com

The blog is now fully migrated back to archondigital.com and if you’re wondering why I moved it in the first place, and why I keep moving it around, everything […]

Wooden wares. Juan Luna St., Binondo, Manila.

Walking through the crowded Juan Luna street in Binondo, I found myself smack, right in front of this person pushing a cart full of wooden kitchenwares. I was fortunate to have my 28mm on my camera or else I would’ve had to crouch or probably missed this shot. Choosing the 28mm over the 50mm was a good […]

Sta. Elena St., Binondo, Manila

Two female vendors selling Angpao (little red envelopes), signaling the start of the holiday season in Chinatown. Sta. Elena St., Binondo, Manila. Taken through my usual route, cutting through Lucky Chinatown walk on my way to Juan Luna St. I was still deciding if I would go 50mm or 28mm for my walk yesterday and just quickly snapped […]

Breakfast at Plaza Rueda

A street vendor prepares breakfast for this family of three, with the morning rush hour traffic serving as a backdrop to their daily routine. Plaza Rueda, Ermita, Manila. Breakfast from street food vendors, a cup of instant coffee and the occasional cigarette, seems the practical choice for the everyday, masa commuter, at least in these parts. […]
