50mm f/1.8 :)
(Sorry if you asked this the other day and I kind of forgot about it hehehe) When I applied for the first time, I had to write 3 essays: on myself, comparing The GUIDON to another publication outside of Ateneo, and an essay on what makes a good photo. I also had to “stalk” ten people (sometimes literally because I was too shy to ask them if I could take their photo). I had an interview with my photo editor and I had to submit my portfolio. It was suuuuuuper hard and long. I did an all-nighter for it while I was studying for a math test and then I went to training at 6AM. Crazy, but it was totally worth it! :)
GOOD LUCK HOPE TO SEE YA IN A FEW MONTHS!
Thanks! Hehe! I guess first, you have to have the correct camera settings (shutter speed, ISO, etc), second, you have to make sure your subject is focused, and third, you have to make sure your lens is clean and free of dust!
Yup! I’m super happy with my 50mm f/1.8. It produces a lot of bokeh already. It’s useless if I buy a f/1.4 or a 1.2 because it’s kind of similar. I’d rather save up for something else. HAHAHA! (I heard that f/1.4s break quickly)
It’s a Pentax ME Super. It’s soooo prettyyyyy.
Why “EXACT” …
It’s such a great experience! Taking photos for The GUIDON gave me opportunities to improve. I also met a lot of talented people who taught me sooooo much. You should apply! It’s a crazy process, but it’s all worth it! :)
My nifty fifty is my best friend. :)
No. You don’t want to meet him. He thinks he’s good looking. -_-
Three years! Started in third year highschool when I got sick of badminton.
