sports photography – just one or two more seconds for the money picture shot!

February 22, 2013 Leave a comment

the alternate title – damn it’s hard to take sports shots! sub-title – specially if you do not have the camera and lens for it.

those are things we knew before but got confirmed when we actually tried it.

the football match was between the juniors teams of Ateneo and FEU at the Ateneo football field for the UAAP. given that we did not have the right camera and lens for sports shots, the expectations for great pictures were intentionally set very low.

sports photography is probably one of the few types where you do need really specialized cameras and lenses. you need a fast camera, a fast and very long lens (telephoto or zoom)  and one that can take many multiple shots one after the other with each shot perfectly focused. these types of cameras and lenses will cost easily more than $100,000 versus the camera and lens we used which was a fraction of that cost.

but we took the pictures anyway.

we wanted to capture a a specific shot – one that an Ateneo striker kicking a ball past the  FEU goal keeper. i was hoping that the picture will show the ball just passing through the goal keeper.  the shots we got were multiple shots and resulted to some nice pictures of the ball getting kicked, sailing to the goal keeper and then passed the goal keeper down deep into the net for a goal.

but no shot where the ball just passing the goal keeper. we missed that shot by a mere one or two seconds!

nice try, better luck next time.

photo #3 : well in this space is supposed to be the shot we wanted to record – the ball sailing just past the goal keeper. but the camera motor failed me as it was unable to take the shot. we swear our finger was continuously pressing the shutter button!

photo #4: it’s a goalllllllll! football hits the net as FEU goal keeper looks at it and the Ateneo player runs back to his team mates to celebrate.

the other thing we experienced was the need to stalk the play of the game. we intended to take a goal shot and we needed to read the game and get ready to take the shot when the goal was supposed to be made. looking at the viewfinder the whole time to follow the flow of the game didn’t work. we needed to remove the camera from our eye to watch the game. and as soon as a developing goal was about to be made, that’s when you put the camera up to your eye.

these were lucky photo shots as we were able to read the play correctly and a goal was made. but, those one to two seconds delay didn’t allow us to achieve our goal.

oh well, that is what happens to amateur sports photographers with amateur cameras and lenses. (insert laughter here)

boston on the cold and snow, deep snow

just how bad was the snow storm that hit boston and other parts of the northeast in the US? these pictures show it, one day after the storm left and it became safe to go out.

valentine ads that will turn you red in the face, for better or worst

February 16, 2013 Leave a comment

here are three ads that has the power to turn you red in the face, for better or worst.

photo (2)

 

beer on valentine’s? that is not the usual alcohol usually considered during velantines. something italian or some bubbly perhaps but not beer. this heineken ad gives beer a new respectability and yes a romantic twist to what happens when you see the bubbles coming out of the chilled heineken. romance with a beer, that works very well.

photo (1)

 

this ad got replies from a lot of people in my timeline in twitter, all of them ladies.

a girlfriend who wanted to be an ex bought ad space in a place where her boyfriend goes to buy his lunch at work. in that ad space, she told her boyfriend she was breaking up with him, complete with the boyfriend’s name and some important information like where his stuff are. for sure the boyfriend would read the message, plus a few more hundreds who go to the same place, the ad space was rented for a month.

and the replies from the ladies in my twitter timeline was unkind and in disagreement with laura. your take?

this ikea promo ad is for what i think is just a brilliant promo for ikea.

it’s an ads that reads the habits of its target market very well. call it consumer insight that hits home and sits very well on reality among the target market. aside from roses, chocolates and dinner, what else do you do on valentine’s day to celebrate the day of love?

this promises to give a free crib for babies born exactly nine (9) months from valentine day 2013.

for sure this ad will give smiles to couples who read the ad and will generate such an abundance of brand loyalty and goodwill among those who goes to ikea to claim their crib.

my only want on this ad is this – it should have been a full page ad in the leading newspaper with better graphic design and copy. that is really a minor point. on its bare bones design and copy writing, it is still a brilliant ad and promotion. 10 stars plus one!

 

the goat and the kiss at super bowl 2013

February 6, 2013 Leave a comment

there are two of the many interesting TV ads shown in this year’s Super Bowl 2013.

the Doritos ad does not take itself seriously, pokes fun at itself and succeeds in making it a memorable ad. of course the question ism after seeing a goat devour doritos, will it make people want to buy it and devour it themselves?

one of the pillars of food advertising, which we assume doritos is still under this category, is “appetite appeal”.  not sure many will find a goat eating doritos as appetizing. unless you are a goat yourself, of course.

one more to why doritos does not take itself seriously – the male character in this had has facial hair that resembles what we expect in goats. as i watched the ad, i thought there will be some role reversal in the end or something will be made out of the facial hair. i was disappointed, it did not end there.

the other ad with super model bar rafaeli and the lucky geek can be taken seriously by internet types who deal with GoDaddy. this ad did not score well in trackings for its too sexy content, the super bowl is typically watched by the whole family which includes children, hence the poor score.

but if you are an adult and you are into computers and the internet, this ad is an excellent fodder for dreams, wet or dry. geez, who can beat french kissing with a super model?

and a last note on the acting and production – the kiss seemed very real. in interviews given by the geek in the ad on US TV, they shot the ad for a whole day. yes, geek friends, they were exchanging kisses for the whole day!

there you go…..

#gangsters’ twin celebration last january 27, 2013

February 2, 2013 Leave a comment
#gangsters

#gangsters and guests

last january 27, 2013, the #gangsters held it’s first tweetup of 2013. it was a twin celebration plus special guests joined the event.

DSC_1145

dr. clinton balud

the first celebration and this one is probably one of the grandest that the #gangsters will ever have is dr. clinton balud, a baguio-based doctor who joined us that evening. he came all the way from baguio to rejoin the #gangsters after what he calls a “successful second life”.

a day after a #gangster tweetup in december 2012 at Slice High Street, dr. clinton suffered a major heart attack when he returned to baguio. he needed to go through a major heart operation and with just a few weeks after the operation he is all well, fully recovered and even looking healthier than before.

the #gangsters were all over themselves in seeing dr. clinton at the tweetup in just a few weeks after his operation. he is known to be a health buff, always going to the gym regularly and ate healthy foods. those and his young age according to him ensured he will recover from the major heart surgery with flying colors. on top of those things, it did help that his heart attack in baguio happened right at the hospital where he worked. he received excellent medical services from the surgeons, doctors, nurses and other hospital staff who made sure he will go through it well and fit. dr. clinton also credits his friends, families and even strangers who prayed and wished him well.

dr. clinton’s experience reminds us all that living healthy, exercising regularly, eating the right food and having loving friends and family is THE most effective formula for success in health, even a major heart attack.

las vegas – based tony shappy

the other half in our twin celebration was meting Tony Shappy who is part of the #gangsters in twitter and is based in Las Vegas, USA. tony who was born and raised in angeles city, pampanga was home for a short vacation and he wanted to make sure he gets to see the faces behind the #gangster usernames in twitter.

what is a #gangsters tweetup without special guests? that is  rare. in this tweetup, we were joined by HOR rhbill champion representative kimi conjuangco   and her husband and ex-representative mark cojuangco; the popular tour guide and artist carlos celdran who in the past days is in the news and beth angsioco, one of the #gangsters and  a noted women’s rights advocate and newspaper columnist.

DSC_1163

represntative kimi cojuangco

rep kimi told us inside stories about what happened at the HOR on the trek of the RH Bill to becoming RH Law.

she credits social media, twitter and the #gangsters in particular in playing an important role in getting the RH Bill passed. it was unmistakable based on her experience that the #gangsters through twitter was instrumental in getting the RH Bill from being close to dead and ignored  at the HOR to something alive, strong and getting all the attention it deserved.

in our view, the #gangsters’ tweets gave rep kimi’s lone voice strength and loudness that not only enabled her voice to be heard by other RH Bill advocates in twitter and other social media, but also by traditional media, the other members and leaders in the legislature and specially other key national leaders.  this collective loud voice caused the action by leaders to get it done in congress and eventually at the senate and the office of the president.

the #gangsters may have tweeted with text via keyboards, but they came out noisy and strong to be heard by all key players in and outside of social media and the internet. it may just be #gangster words in twitter, but they caused action in the real world.

“mr. damaso” carlos celdran

we have been to carlos celdran’s tour at the malate church some years ago, we were more than a dozen people, adults and kids belonging from 3 families and all of us ended the tour smiling, happy, entertained and better informed about the philippine history and the malate church and nearby places during the japanese war.

we would not be surprised to know that celdran’s middle name is “entertainment”. entertained he did to us during the tweetup. he told us his own experience when he was “arrested” for the protest action he did at the Manila Cathedral two years ago to which he has been charged with a crime. the tweetup was on a sunday and the decision on his case will be handed down next day, monday.

celdran gave us tiny details of what happened from the time he prepared for the protest action at his residence in malate to the court hearings. it was full of funny and interesting tidbits that made us wonder is this for real or a skit in a comedy show?

it was real alright as next day, celdran was found guilty by the court of the crime of  “notoriously offending religious feelings”. (read here: “Carlos Celdran’s guilty verdict “offending religious feelings”)

DSC_1169

beth angsioco

beth angsioco gave us a short history of the long history of the rh bill. it was a long and winding struggle from the beginnings of the rh bill  where each and every step of progress seemed to take a march of a thousand steps. without saying it, we believe beth was telling us  it was a journey worth taking as she believed in it and believed that it will really make a difference in the lives not only of women but also of pinoy families and the poor.

it was a beautiful evening with the #gangsters. it was interesting that the members were all strangers to each other at the start but has evolved to a community founded on shared values and advocacy, including jokes and laughter.  until the next historic tweetup of the #gangsters….

playboy model goes commando, flashes serbian prime minister in fake interview

February 1, 2013 Leave a comment

this is apparently a true story. a few things:

  • did the group have press credentials that THE PRIME MINISTER accepted the interview and even went to the studio of the prankster?
  • if you see an interviewer dressed like that, micro mini skirt with a very deep neckline, wouldn’t you suspect something is wrong?
  • the prime minister’s staff did not go to the place ahead of time to check out the place?
  • the prime minister’s staff did not check before hand who will be interviewing their boss? and if they did, they would have been given a name unknown to them, they did not suspect anything?
  • for sure this embarrassing  event will result to the media and security staff of the prime minister will be fired from their jobs

this is a gross disrespect to the highest government position of serbia, the perpetrators should be prosecuted.

 

Serbia PM orders inquiry into “Basic Instinct” fake TV interview

(Reuters) – Serbia’s prime minister, who was flashed by a model without underwear masquerading as a television interviewer, has launched an investigation into how he became the target of the prank, an aide said on Thursday.

The video of Ivica Dacic being interviewed by a brunette former model from Croatian Playboy, who uncrosses her legs in a scene reminiscent of actress Sharon Stone in the film “Basic Instinct”, has been viewed 2.7 million times on YouTube.

“The whole case will be fully investigated,” Dacic’s national security adviser, Ivica Toncev, was quoted as telling the Serbian daily Blic.
