Thanks mr Tony I appreciate I just read this post I am not I am not offended at all. I have my 17-55mm f8 and 2 umbrella on its side level with my sons height I also have the rf602 attached to my 430 and 1 with my 7d, I really want to learn this type of photography so anything that can help me like tips, ideas I appreciate it. Oh and also in manual mode on both 430 and 560 so I can control my flash output, I don't know how to use photoshop, I focused on the eye maybe I messed things up when I did some pp in lr4.

hi peter, how's the gang here? been very busy lately. i'm currently reviewing for an examination later for me to become a Cetified BERDE Professional. much like a LEED AP in the States.

i can't help but butt in, in your conversation with Mr. Tony. first, you got some good stuff to start from. only comment is, try to learn ONE STROBE / FLASH photography first. I mean, if you're using the 560 and 430, I advise you to use the 560 first. you can position it in the left or right, whichever suits you best. then at the opposite side use some reflectors.

as for the shutter speed and aperture values, try playing at 1/125 to 1/200 and f8 to f11 depending on the lens you're using. and speaking of lens, if you're using the 17-55, use the longest focal length. if you have the 50mm f1.8, then it's better. again, whichever suits you best. only reason why i'm saying this is to avoid distortion when using the wide angle part of the lens.

anyway, you have a good model with you to practice with. keep on practicing and that's where you learn from.

another thing is, you should also try to learn shooting candids like birthdays and children's party and stuff like that. the challenge with these kinds of events is that you're shooting spontaneous, meaning you should be fast and know the settings to use with your camera and flash to get good captures. unlike studio type shots where all equipment are at your mercy.

This is great thanks Ian and Mr. Tony I appreciate it very much I will keep this in mind, Ian all my friends always ask me to take pics of their kids during birthdays so definitely I will have a lot of practice. Mr I will looked back for pages when you posted your portraits shots I remember you posted a lot when you were in Manila and the red carpet shots here I am sure I will pick up a lot of pointers there. Thank you very much please keep the tips coming I really like to learn OCF. Thanks again.

I have a flash meter, so I set the shutter to 125 , if subject is close iso 100, then adjust, but F8, 7.2 should work, key light 1/2 power, and hair light at 1/4 for fast recycling....check your histogram, I also use a 18% grey card,

That is what I don't have yet the flash meter and reflectors I will get one. Thanks for detailed tips and help mr Tony I really really appreciate it.

What places do you want to explore?

Tourist friendly places that I would highly recommend are
Cebu (Bantayan Island, Oslob Whale Shark etc.)
Bohol for (Chocolate Hills, Tarsier monkeys and Loboc River Cruise)
Puerto Princesa (Honda Bay, Crocodile Farm, Iwahig Penal Colony, Iwahig River fireflies, Underground river - one of the new 7 wonders of the world)
El Nido (I haven't been there but it's a given)
Coron (I haven't been there as well but everybody says its nice)

For the less tourist friendly but equally beautiful:
Siquijor ( Very nice and quiet with a few falls and beautiful beaches)
Romblon, Romblon (kinda too remote for casual travel but the beach and nearby islands are stunning)
Ilocos Norte (this one, you need to hire a car and a driver, go there for a few days drive... explore the World Heritage Churches and Pagudpud beach including Bangui Windmill).
Sagada/Banaue (This one is a bit of an adventure... but so worth it. :D)

There's a few more but you said you only got a month in the Philippines, you can do all that in a month :lol: ;) Let me know if you need more info on some of those places. :D

Dingalan (external link) is near your area. Not very touristy, the beach are not sandy. Nice and quiet tho.

My last visit we did the Pagudpud loop by way of La Union, Vigan, then went home using the Cagayan valley route.

Enjoy your visit.
