I suggest Pagudpud for a very nice sunset...
Here's a sample pic.

You can also go to Burgus' Light House and along the way is Kapur-purawan & the famous Windmill of Bangui...

for shooting seascapes, I recommend the following:
1. tripod
2. remote trigger cord (shutter release)
3. an ND filter 9 stops (screw type)
4. an ND grad, to balance the sky with the foreground, 0.9 soft edge (square, slot type)
5. a CPL, if you want to remove the glare/reflection on the water

settings, depends really with the light available. lowest ISO. focus to infinity. try to set Av at f/8 or 11. play with the shutter speed.  try different WB until you achieve the desired color balance. or shoot RAW if you plan to change the WB during post processing.

exciting yan, shooting seascapes/sunsets. watch out for the waves/water splash.  suggest also to keep the camera strap in you neck while shooting. unless you are very confident with you tripod's stability.

maganda sa Ilocos. superb scenes.  good luck and happy shooting!

thanks po for the pointers..
Im not sure kung kaya ko mag afford ng remote trigger, wala rin po akong idea kung magkano ang el cheapo na ND filter (ang mahal kasi sa filters exchange).. magkano po ba at saan makakabili ng el cheapo na ND filters?

For the best guide there is in pagudpud, contact Kuya Nath at 09162368324. Isa syang tour guide / tricycle driver / homestay proprietor na masasabi ko na talagang hindi marunong manggulang sa turista.

Marc,

Don't get bombarded with too much accessories to bring on you trip to Ilocos, I am 100% sure you will end up shooting less.

Familiarize with your camera menu, settings. Learn exposure compensation, you'll get to shoot lots of extremes here.. low light to broad day light.

Pagudpod is nothing but a white beach. Don't attempt a Martinez shot here, suggest stick to basic photography - composition +proper exposure.

Calle Crisologo is best shot during dawn when there's less people on the streets. You should be able to get nice street lights/ star burst using your available lens high aperture opening. Keep your ISO at the lowest, use tripod. To prevent shake if remote shutter isn't available, use your 10/2sec shutter timer.

Ilocos landscape is generally fine for photography. I highly suggest read your camera manual, practice exposures at varying lighting conditions so you wont waste time reaching some of Ilocos' most photogenic landscapes - Kapurpuraoan, Burgos Lighthouse, Sand Dunes, Paoay.

Say "Napintas" (it's beautiful) and "Dios Ti Ag-ngina" (Thank you) in Ilocano.

/m
