(Both pictures above L-R: Mr. Z, Eugene, Rizal, Ijoy, and Lokesh) These guys make working at the 1885 a fun trip.
(Below) I’m in a very relaxed state here, as you can see. Ijoy deftly handled my Canon EOS 550D with ease, since he’s got one of his own.
(Above) Eugene owed me a cappuccino (heh heh) so I turned up to collect. It was flavored with vanilla and just a tinge of sugar. I pointed my EOS 550D straight down at it and added some fill-in flash with my Speedlite 580EX II.
(Below) Celia is a trainee in fine dining. The first time I met her I could already picture her through the viewfinder of my camera, so I asked her whether it’d be alright to take her picture. She said yes (must be my charm) I used my Nikon soft focus filter to achieve a romantic effect.
Lastly, the photographer and the model. Mr. Zara took over my Canon and snapped this parting shot. Celia will be moving to the kitchen department soon. Good luck, Celia.Tags: 1885, Canon 18-135mm IS zoom lens, Canon 580EX II Speedlite, Canon EOS 550D, E & O Hotel
