I am originally from the Philippines, born and raised in Ormoc City, Leyte (bisayang dako!) and currently living in San Jose, California.

Mainly interested in improving my photography...

Joined Flickr around June 2007 and have been hooked.

Some Food For Thoughts...

"Photography is a way of telling what you feel about what you see..."

"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs..."

"Image quality is not the product of a machine but of the person who directs the machine, and there are no limits to imagination and expression..."

"Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships."

- Ansel Adams


"There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality."

“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”

- Pablo Picasso


"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."

- Elliott Erwitt


"The camera points both ways; in expressing our subject we are also expressing ourselves."

- Freeman Patterson


"I see no reason for recording the obvious”

- Edward Weston

    TLC Fotografie says:

    "I can't believe that Kudaker started the photography only a year ago. His work speaks of a mature photographer who not only has an eye for seeing the objects in artistic way, but also matching skills to bring out the best of any subject.

    I am glad to have kudaker as a contact. He is truly a standard for "Faving" a photo. When he Favs a shot I have taken, I am very certain that I have done a good job.

    Thank you kudaker for being a Flickr friend and sharing your beautiful work with us."
