Get your vanity fix at Maldita’s own hair and beauty studio for full servicing.
Members of the Press and Media, as well as fashion bloggers and other prominent personalities have gathered to witness and join in this significant event. The salon blessing was officiated by Rev. Fr. Benedict Nyoni of St. Paul The Apostle Parish Church, followed by the ceremonial ribbon cutting made by Madame Emelda Teng with special guests, Gen. Manager of L’Oreal, Yunos Koswara and Brand Ambassador for Maldita Studio, Dr. Hayden Kho, Jr. -Maldita Studio
Excellent food and drinks were catered by Mango Tree Bistro.
Maldita Studio is located at Ground floor, 75 Panay Avenue, Quezon City.
A few weeks before the party I had a few hours to the studio to shoot the interior with a wide lens.
It’s been awhile.
2012 was a great shooting year. Projects came and went and I enjoyed every minute of it. Finally, the new Mac Dy photography portfolio site is up. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Instructions from the church coordinator were: photographers and videographers must not stand in the Chancel (In church architecture, the chancel is the space around the altar in the sanctuary at the liturgical east end of a traditional Christian church building. It may terminate in an apse. -Wikipedia) area. Ok then I thought, Heidi and Mel will never ever have a photo of themselves kneeling in front of the priest listening to the sermon or saying their vows. Since I doubt the couple will ever go through this again- with utmost respect and good intentions, there just had to be some shots coming from that area.
I slowly inched closer to the off-limit area but surely my tall build didn’t help much as everyone in the church noticed this photographer doing what he wasn’t supposed to. But in hind sight, it was well worth it.
Impromptu Event Shoot
It just happened. No advance booking or details. Came home to the tune of 200 images with a stomach full of good food.
The Atrium is beautifully lit but a disaster to DSLR white balance. Flash was used on most of the photos (except the 1st and last 2) and had to be off camera for a bit of directional lighting. No flash diffusers were used. Exif details: Canon EOS 7D+Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM+Speedlite 580 EX II on slave mode. For ultra wide angle lenses it is better to use off camera remote flash. Just be creative with your hands and don’t forget to bring a tripod.
June 16-18, 2011, SMX Convention Center
Nothing to do this weekend? Head on over to Mall of Asia’s SMX Convention Center for Canon’s Print for Smiles. It’s for a good cause. See you all there…
April 8-10, 2011 Taipei, Taiwan ROC
In a big white tent beside Taipei 101 sits Canon’s ImageFest 2011 in celebration of 10 years of Canon Taipei. All guest entering are required to get a free lanyard and booklet to collect 6 stamps at the different sections for a free gift (a Canon Imagefest magnet clip).
Upon entering the tent, guest are treated to displays of Canon’s fine past. Most of the displays are cameras and calculators. There were a Kwanon, Cannonet, AE, etc. on display. The main tent held six sections of Canon products. Each for the Ixus and point and shoot lines, printers, advance copiers, EOS line-photography and video gear and EF/EFS lens line up. Nothing new but lenses and bodies could be tested except there were long lines. Just like a circus there’s a center stage for shows throughout the day. A violinist and dancers in costume and stilts were performing on April 8.
Canon Imagefest Taipei was more for the uninitiated consumer than the photographer. It was interesting to see all the products in one place though. Enjoy the photos-captured with EOS 7D+EF 24-70 f/2.8. Shot RAW and converted in DPP to jpg. All the images are out of camera shots-no time for Photoshop.
I had the pleasure to shoot an expecting couple recently. Decided to do 4 versions of the photo: original (upper left), amber sepia, vinatage (lower left) and black and white. Which one do you prefer?
New Years Eve Panorama
The panorama to end 2010 from a recent wedding I covered in Baguio-City of Pines, Philippines.
The interior of St. Joseph the Worker Parish Church captured with Canon EOS 40D w/EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5. 3 quick hand held frames shot while the entourage was prepping for the walk down the aisle. RAW processed in DPP and final output in Photoshop.
Have a great new years eve party!
