@Sir tope this may be my first and last summer trip for this year :(
may review na kasi ako. kaya gusto ko sulitin :D hehe..

Bibili na nga pala ako ng Massa 58mm CPL filter bukas bago umalis.. Sulit kaya yung 600php? has anyone tried using these filters?

enjoy lang.. kaya yan... ako din pagdating ng july, wala na akong leaves... nagamit ko na lahat... hehe...

for affordable CPLs, i prefer Hoya pero mejo mas mahal nga lang sya sa Massa at Sunpak...pero try mo din.. wala nmn akong naririnig o natatandaan na negative feedback sa kanila eh...

Some things I always carry when I'm shooting along the sea. Filters by Cokin!! Those rectangular ones. Easy to use, just place it in front of your lens. No need to screw in and out. And siempre a polarizing filter, this one screw mount. I know how expensive Circular Polarizers nowadays. So try to borrow from your friends. And the most essential is a roll of cling wrap. Salt sea spray can easily eat up your equipment. Not literally ha? But the paint and open aluminum parts of your gear can suffer with even the mist from salt water. So wrap your gear with cling wrap.

Pagudpud is okay but Narvacan on the way to Vigan (right before the long bridge) is a better location IMHO. Don't be afraid to get your feet wet and don't stop shooting even until after the sun goes down.

Just bring some trashbags, a towel and some water (slightly damp towel--to wipe down your equipment after--saltwater sucks). If you have a Manfrotto or similar tripod, don't be afraid if sand gets into the legs--you can simply disassemble it later on to get it out. Important lang to get the legs under running fresh water after you dunk it in saltwater para iwas corrosion.

I used to use ND filters a lot but unless you're shooting film, you can simulate it by bracketing shots and blending using masks in Photoshop. (The samples below were quick blends in PS of bracketed shots).

If you don't have a release cord, just use your camera's timer function. If your camera has mirror lock up, don't forget to use it, but you often have to have a remote cord for it to be effective.

Hello again! just came back from the trip!

Enjoy naman ang ilocos trip, kaso tour lang ang nangyari sa pagudpud almost 3 hours lang ata kami nagstay doon (bitin na bitin ako), nakarating din ako ng burgos lighthouse at bangui windmills kaso di na ako nakapag set up ng tripod kasi ginawa akong cameraman ng mga kasama ko at nagmamadali sila. fortunately nakapagshoot ako ng maayos sa Pug-os Beach sa Cabugao, Ilocos Sur yun kasi yung malapit na beach sa tinuluyan namin, nakakuha naman ako ng decent shots sa vigan. mamaya siguro post ko mga shots ko dito sa thread na ito. di na rin ako nakabili ng filters, napaaga kasi yung alis namin kaya UV lang nakalagay sa lens ko...

salamat piphols!  ;D
