I have so much photos that I do not know what to do with. They’re still piled up in my phone thinking I could use them for Instagram but we all know how curated our feeds go so I couldn’t just put everything. For starters, my chosen filter doesn’t go well with the photo. The other times, it’s just too brown or too blue or too less airy for my liking. At the moment, I like my Instagram to look kinda retro with warm tones, saturated blue skies, and a slight yellow highlight. So I decided I should just make a photodump of the pictures that I won’t be using for my Instagram.

For the month of January, I only have four though. Because I’m too lazy to put filters on all of the photos, I just decided to pick four of my favorite shots that I played with using Photoshop. Although, I have uploaded the raw (but filtered) shots on the gram, I’m uploading here the output of my collage experiment. I have always been fascinated with it so I decided to give it a try. Makes me wish my parents had enrolled me in an art school when I was younger! 🙁

Before the ends of the year, my family went on a trip to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. It was such a beautiful place and inspired me to switch my feed’s feel into something warm and saturated. November 2016, I knew I was tired of washed out photos. It was difficult for me to constantly look for super bright places and/or stuff. I love white but I can’t dedicate my photos to it, there’s just too much color. Lol. [RELATED: Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar: An Architectural Haven]

For my aunt’s birthday, my family and I took a trip to Laguna. We first stopped by Pililla Windmills in Bugarin, Pililla, Rizal. It was a cool place, I loved that it was chilly when we visited so we got to enjoy going around. Bangui is still more scenic for me but it’s good to know that my province is venturing into renewable energy now. <3

My cousins and I went bowling last week and it was so much fun! I finally got to win against my brother (by one point!!!), and I finally hit a strike! It feels so good to win at something I suck at. HAHA! We played three rounds and I only got to win once. It was okay though because at least, I WON. 😛

I dropped by Artwork last week and pored through their sale shirts and I’m so happy I found this one! It’s funny and I like how retro it looks too. I wore the shirt last Sunday and it shamed me into working out. Feels good to sweat. 😀

How do you guys like the pictures? I’m really trying my best to get the hang of creating a collage! Please give me tips if you have any. 😀

    Reminds me of Camie’s St Ives photo edits.

      Oh yeah! It was inspired by Pauline’s collages but it does remind me of Camie’s too. 🙂

    I love how you edit your photos. I don’t know why I never learned to edit and be creative in my photos. hahaha! Maybe you could teach us some basic thru your post.

      Thank you, Rejoyce! I used to be so clueless but I learned along the way (through a bunch of tutorial posts, lol). Thanks for the suggestion! I’d love to tell you guys how I do it, I’ll work on the post. 🙂
