For The Love of Bokeh
Day 48 - February 18, 2010
On this second day of my Boy Behind The Lens Series I'd like to take you to my office. Here I am at 17th Floor of our building, the GMA Network Center late tonight.
April marks my tenth year with GMA 7, one of the leading television networks in the Philippines. I work in the news department as Assistant Manager for Multimedia.
My job besically has plenty to do with technology and how it is used in news gathering; we call this Digital News Gathering (DNG). Occasionally I am sent out to produce coverage of special events. I've also done a bit of on-camera reporting on wide range of different stories, most however have to with technology, the Internet and social media. I am most proud of work I have done working behind the scenes mounting our coverage of the War on Iraq and our own Mt. Everest Expedition, and setting up our DNG program.
And yes on a completely related note. I do love bokeh!
PHOTO NOTES: Decided not to use my SB-400 because of all the glass here, the SB400 isn't that flexible and I wanted to control the glare, admittedly I'm not good with lighting. This is actually a long exposure shot, so I had to stay still for a good 20 seconds. Used my iPhone to light my face. Had trouble focusing also because the focus assist illuminator only works with the center focus so I had to estimate focus.
