We took our first stab at making a stand for one of my ceramic pots. This is what we came up with.

New Found Love – Ceramics

June 13, 2019

I discovered a new hobby… ceramics! I took a beginner’s class at Merritt Ceramics back in March and it was love at first throw.  Since then I haven’t stopped practicing. I attended a “throwing off the hump” workshop, a second beginner’s class, am currently in the intermediate class, and in July I’ll be taking a 5-day course on how to throw big at The Crucible in Oakland. I’m also now a proud owner of the Shimpo VL-Lite potter’s wheel.

There’s still a ton of things to learn about ceramics and I’m excited to soak in as much knowledge as I can so that I can throw more consistently. Just look at the photo on this post and you’ll notice the different sizes. Just FYI, the intention was to make them all identical in height and diameter. I definitely need more practice.

Looking Out

March 19, 2019

I’ve always loved the view from my living room. It’s not as pretty as the lake but I still get to watch people walk by. That house across is my neighbor Sam’s house, and that dog bombing my composition… that’s Diego.

The Hario V60 Pour Over Tutorial

August 17, 2017

Today was going to be a good day for creativity. I love the ritual of making coffee every morning and thought I’d share my process using my Lumix G7. I think I’m starting to get the hang of editing videos on Adobe Premiere. I’m sure I’m not using all the features but I’m happy with how this video came out. I used a Nikon 17-55mm 2.8 and a Nikon 50mm 1.4 lens to shoot.

Today’s brew is Blue Bottle’s Honduras Santa Elena Catracha Quality Project beans, roasted August 14, 2017 so it’s pretty fresh. Here’s a list of the items I used:

  • Hario ceramic V60 dripper
  • Hario V60 filter
  • Hario canister coffee grinder
  • Hario scale
  • Hario server
  • Wood-Handled Pouring Kettle from Blue Bottle

Humboldt 2017

July 13, 2017

Humboldt 2017 from Timmy Perez on Vimeo.

In the morning as I was packing my Karma grip,  I realized that I had forgotten to charge it the night before. I figure I would have time since we weren’t leaving until another couple hours.  An hour into charging, I noticed that the battery status didn’t really move that much. Out of the 4 dotted lights, only one was blinking, indicating that it hasn’t even reached 25%.  I went online and discovered that it would take 6 hours to fully charge the Karma grip. What???? 6 hours for 1.5 hours of use? Lame. You would need one of these chargers to cut charging time to 2 hours. Ofcourse you’d have to shell out $50 for it.

Luckily the drive to Humboldt was going to be roughly 4 hours, and since I had a head start at home, it would be fully juiced up (via Khai’s car charger) by the time we reach our destination. I couldn’t possibly pass on the opportunity to capture this 4th of July’s camping trip!

The first 3 minutes was mostly shot in Hidden Springs Campground where we camped the first 2 nights. The last night was spent in Albee Creek, one of the best sites I’ve been to so far.

Detalye Unlimited

I shot this for a friend who started her own clothing line (Detalye Unlimited). The shots were mostly done just at the house and around Corinthians.

Alon Photoshoot

April 3, 2017

My very first fashion shoot at Tali Beach, Batangas – Philippines. I didn’t have any of my equipment with me besides my Nikon D700 and a 1.4 50mm prime lens. Not too shabby for a first try.
