A sleepy town down south boasts of the biggest christian church in the Philippines and the token Jose Rizal statue which methinks you see on every old town anyway.
Old houses, old churches, old roads, old park, old schools. but a new sight for me. working in a advertising agency sure has some perks when traveling free – we had a shoot here! 3 hours from manila, you traverse through long highways and foggy hills to get to Taal, Batangas. it was hot and my lomo, Lenin has just eaten a yummy slide and was ready to shoot. the Basilica De San martin De tours still stands, the emblem of pinoys strong christian ways. and it wasn’t kidding when it claimed it was the biggest. man, it was huge! but inside the church halls where it was once decked with huge figures of saints are now just hallowed nooks. the old “Santos” were gone. they were either looted during the war or the eruption of taal volcano or taken cared by the families around town. today, it is now a heritage site and it is know as the “Barong Tagalog” and “balisong” capital of the Philippines.

This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
