Some people say good portraiture is all about using the square format or medium format. But there's another format you have to try!
Have you ever gotten curious with the taste of square format? Or maybe you wanna try the 6×6 medium format to take a portrait?
We can’t deny that this format is really unique, yet quite awkward to compose. The key is using your mind to imagine the result before you press the shutter. You can choose any film that you want, negative, slide, B&W, redscale or infrared. But if you want a catchy portrait, try color flash!
Children are really cute and they make photos become cheerful. Just look at those innocent smiles! They are really happy to be shot.
Well, how about the ordinary format?? I think it’s quite easy to compose, you can try using the rule of thirds.
And the crazy thing to make portrait photos is to let the sprocket holes get exposed! With red leaks and some MX-ed photos, you can make stunning results! Oh yeaah..
It’s a good day for all film shooters and film aficionados out there. Another effort has been mounted to keep the analogue flame burning. CineStill recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of their medium format CineStill 800Tungsten film.

I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
