I brought my camera with me when I went out this afternoon to do a couple of errands. I wasn’t planning to do anything big with it but take a couple of test shots inside the mall where low-light areas are plenty while having my snack. Heck, I didn’t have any intentions of staying longer than 30 minutes. Wait for it..
Lo and behold, when I was near the mall entrance, someone called my name.
Three of my friends from high school were hanging out just outside the mall entrance. Haha. I thought to myself, oh perfect timing! I’m glad I brought my camera with me.. I finally have subjects to take photos of! :))
We stayed at the mall’s food court from late afternoon to 7pm. We talked about all sorts of things from that time when someone threw a mayo container at Carlo cuz he kept annoying our classmate by singing Manson’s “Sweet Dreams” to her (always makes me laugh everytime this is brought up, this goes way back in freshman year!), up to weekend plans, and the most random topic was probably about sharing their love woes and problems. I won’t tell who shared their story here, of course. All I’m saying is I was the one who asked/started the topic. =)) What? I was curious. In a nutshell, the four of us were CATCHING UP. 😉
So here are a couple of photos from tonight w/ my friends. More photos under the cut.
Oh! Wait, I added something new to this.. since I was testing out the camera, I added before and after photos. Just hover over the image to view the original. Just so you know what the quality is like of the Nikon P300. I only have it enabled on some of the images though. A few didn’t need to be post processed so I leave it as is.
I was torn between posting the post-processed photos or just upload them straight from camera (after resizing and adding watermarks to them)… but I decided to just do both. At the end of this post, there’s a short conclusion about it. I think it’s enough to cover what I wanted to achieve in this test. Haha. Thanks for taking the time to read this, if ever. 😀 Continue reading…
